I have F-Secure Internet Security 2014 installed on a Windows 7 64bit laptop and all has been fine, but recently Windows has started warning me that F-Secure is turned off, but when I check F-Secure it says it is active and up-to-date?
Also if with installation all OK, does it's happened always after start (and without missing) ?! or just during using laptop in some moments?
It's can be related with any CPU-overload/memory or other;
Maybe if you use something like Google Chrome - can be like one of reason - if it's possible... that take CPU/Memory a lot, more... than need. Maybe some other processes take same situation and "using processor" with overload.
F-Secure will be says "something wrong" if it's stay some time. But if Windows not hidden alert about hours (or more than ten minutes) - probably F-Secure must alerted too.
Thanks for your reply.
No when the warning appears it then remains for the duration.
And yes, F-Secure says it is fully up-to-date.
Verify the icons in Computer Security:
Possible icons and descriptions are:
Also verify that the date & time is correct. If your computer's date & time is incorrect the F-Secure product might not recognise new updates.
Thank you for your replies, I think Simon cracked it!
The Computer Security icons always were the green tick so I thought that F-Secure was active and up-to-date. But I did also have malwarebytes installed, and since uninstalling malwarebytes I have not had any warnings from Windows Action Centre.
With hindsight, it might just have been that malwarebytes was reporting that it was out-of-date!?
Anyway, thanks again.
Funnily enough, Malwarebytes is one of the few other anti-malware products that is compatible with F-Secure! I think the wording in my original post may have been slightly unclear - when I said "such as Malwarebytes", I meant that it is compatible, not that it isn't. Sorry for any confusion.
It's quite possible that it was MWB flagging as out of date, especially if you have the latest version, as I seem to be having problems getting mine to auto update, and frequently have to check for updates manually.
I have no problem at all with MBAM (version 2.01) updates.
Set automatic updates to every hour, and nofitication if out-of-date for more than X days. It's all configurable :)
