How to disable F-Secure Client Security from Policy manager

J-C W/ Alumni Posts: 46 Security Scout



Sorry for posting this twice, replied to an old post at first....


I would like to disable Client Security on several hosts in my test domain, all at once from the Policy manager. How do I do this, is it enough to uncheck the choices below?


Enable Automatic updates

Real-time scanning enabled

Enable FW engine


E-mail and Web scanning are not in use.


Anything else I should be aware of, that also must be disabled?


When I tried to stop and disable all F-secure services on my PC, seems there still are 4 "drivers" resident in memory, see pic.  What are these and wouldn´t they continue to protect the PC even though I have disabled all Windows services?


Do I need to reboot every machine after disabling to make it work?




Thanks and regards,

    Hi Vad and thanks for you answer! I´m sorry but expressed myself badly regarding the "reboot part" in last post, the question I was meaning to ask was:


    After I have disabled windows services, the drivers in the above picture are _still_ present in memory (I guess the Deepguard driver will unload when deactivated from PMC?).


    But do I have to reboot to "get rid of" the rest of the drivers, or are everything disabled despite the fact they reside in memory, won´t they "still work"?



    Thanks and regards,

    Hello J-C,


    The drivers will stiil be present in the memory, even after reboot with disabled F-Secure services, in order to start working if services start. But they are not active.


    Best regards,
