Did anyone else notice installation files (.NET?) created under system drive root?

In my case, C:\

Or was it coincidence (some other installer did it)? I suspect the latter case.


Hello,

My file system, probably, is not about such case. At least, I did not manage to find unexpected installation files (or differences from previous days).

Maybe your state is about:

• Some user interfaces have been implemented using Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2. If you don't have it installed, it will be automatically installed during installation or update from previous version.

My experience is about Windows 10 64bit (1803) - where I am not sure whether.NET Framework 4.7.2 was there before installation or not (but it is possible to suspect that was). Another system is Windows 7 where .NET Framework 4.7.2 was there (listed under Installed applications).  Thus, the installation of .NET Framework 4.7.2 was not triggered when uptading FS Protection.

I do not check what is view when .NET Framework 4.7.2 will be installed during FS Protection update. Maybe if such installations files are remained under directory (as part of temporary storage, for example) - it is unexpected(?!).

Thanks!

Re: FS Protection PC 17.6 releases

A few things I want to mention.

 

17.6 beta 3 has a work-in-progress settings dialog, which is not yet enabled. But you can take a sneak peek by navigating into product installation folder and "ui" subfolder and running "F-Secure.Settings.Gui.exe". Please keep in mind that it's not yet fully functional.

 

There has been some discussion about fs protection removing conflicting products while some users think that it's not a problem and reinstall them right back after our product installation. There is a command-line switch to disable conflicting product removal. It's documented for business product, but the installer code is same so it works for fs protection as well. See here. We still feel that the safest option is to run only one security product, so use this only if you're sure you want to take the risk of conflict.

Re: FS Protection PC 17.6 releases

Too many users are of the "belt and  garter" type.

I've had some success convincing users not to run 2 Av's once they admitted the possibility of conflicts and slowdowns. You cannot convince them with a text one line long in a dialog box.

The only solution is to force uninstallation AND forbid reinstallation of concurrent software.

Just interesting (and based on my not really large experience with some FS Protection stages).. is there any other security software with such a smooth response to up-to-date operating systems (which users use) guides. With its kind of integration into the system flow. This kind of integration that has always been there (and only switches to more up-to-date look).


Thanks for release!

Re: FS Protection PC 17.6 releases

Beta 3 arrived last week and it does update the problem with about window not displaying

FS_17.6_beta3.JPG

When it was not displayed I could see the version in Control Panel Installed programs. (As ther could be other reasons for not displaying than the bug in beta 2)
