f secure android won't open

I updated F-Secure on my Xperia V the other day. Not sure how old the update was, but it required some additional permissions so I found it in the manual update section on Google Play. Anyway it pretty much instantly crashed after the update and now it wont open, doesn't scan, doesn't do anything except use memory. It wont let me uninstall either because it's a device manager, not from the application manager or Google Play. Oh, and it wont let me disable it's device manager priviliges either. Any suggestions on how to fix it or get rid of it? My current android version is 4.3.

 

Edit: Nevermind! It let me deactivate the device manager priviliges after all, it just took a really loooooong time. Problem fixed! :)

Re: f secure android won't open

I got the same problem after update with my Sony SP. Thanks to this discussion did uninstall this program. I tried to install it again and everything went fine but now it says that my subscription isn't in use anymore. I think I had around 200 days left. Is it all gone now that I uninstalled the app that didn't work at all after the update or is there a way to get my subscription back to my phone?
