Hello,

 

Sorry for my reply.

 

Do you mean that your current situation with next view:

 

--> You launch "Uninstall" for F-Secure SAFE(?) by common steps (by default steps for uninstalling sofware under Windows);

And this process  with "freeze/stuck" as result?

 

Or uninstallation just did not start?


With any of meanings: you able try to use F-Secure Uninstallation Tool:

https://community.f-secure.com/t5/F-Secure-SAFE/F-Secure-Uninstallation-Tool/td-p/31265

 

But with some of potential stuck-reasons there can be useful to try steps like:

 

--> Uninstall under Windows Safe Mode;

--> OR restart system and trigger uninstallation (before any usage for F-Secure);

 

For situations - if there can be some hooks by another software or so; Or just because if there something broken.

And then to use F-Secure Uninstallation Tool;

 

Thanks!

The Uninstall Tool is probably your best solution, but bear in mind it will remove ALL of your F-Secure products, so make sure you have any necessary licence keys available, for reinstallation.
