Just fired  up a preinstalled laptop for a new user. It has been offline for a one month.

Cant access anything, since FS is updating... Been like this for 25mins now.

    Also, the error messages misleadingly say, that I need to enable real-time scanning; which is enabled.

    Answering to myself. It's about 30mins with brand new Lenovo T470 i5/ssd/16gb, and after that infinite amount of time, until user reboots his/her computer.


    F-secure, pretty please with sugar on top.

    Why do you give end user faulty error message?

    Why dont you ask to reboot the computer, when/if it's required?

     

    It might be just me, but for the past two versions, your software is getting crappier and crappier, and I have to spend too much trying to resolve what's wrong. I'm starting to regret that I bought a two year subscription.

    Hello,

     

    Sorry for my reply. I'm also only F-Secure user (their home solutions).

     

    I think that there should not be too much large delay. But, maybe, certain time is based on machine configuration.

    Also, I think that potential overload and, for example, monthly Windows updates do able to increase updating and system impact.

     

    Thanks!

    Can't really download windows updates, while FS is blocking all the connections....

    Sounds as strange situation. Maybe it is possible to create fsdiag and transfer it to their Support.

     

    I think that there should not be such situation when F-Secure installation is blocking all the connections.

    But I'm not sure how it is designed with Business solutions (while some core-parts are with one view).
    My Home installation with 'restricted' bandwidth use for network (for example) and I did not feel network impact (but drive/CPU usage maybe).

     

    But there are potential impact with update/install databases after a delay with such process.

    For example, there was discussion about Home solution and somewhat related background:

    Thanks!
