Re: f secure installation failed

Hi amal

 

I doubt that you will receive any response from Support over the next few days due to the festive holidays although I would hope the some Support staff are working somewhere!

 

We helpers have suggested all the ideas that have worked in the past for Virgin Media customers crossing over to F-Secure;

 

1. Windows updates are not waiting to be installed.

 

2. A complete uninstall of VM's Antivirus before trying to install F-Secure. 

 

3. No incompatible security software running in real-time.

 

Therefore, it would appear that there is a hardware/software mix on your machine that F-Secure does not like and therefore only a FSDIAG report would shed some light on a possible conflict.

 

The other possibility is that you have an infection that was not detected by VM Antivirus but which is stopping the install of F-Secure. Have you ruled out this possibility?

 

To test for this I would try running Malwarebytes first; http://www.malwarebytes.org/ and see if there is indeed any malware.

 

If not, install a free Antivirus such as Avira/Avast/Panda until you make a decision on whether to stick with F-Secure or switch to another vendor. IME, there are AVs that run perfectly on some systems but not others!

It's a shame you didn't get to the bottom of what the problem was (obviously some kind of conflict), but glad to hear it's sorted.  santa.gif
