Centrally managed seppuku in F-Secure?

etomcat W/ Alumni Posts: 1,172 Firewall Master



I had a strange experience this afternoon:

Installed FSCS 11.60 (standard) on  a laptop and experienced compability problems with an in-house developed network appliaction. Probably something about the firewall or NIIF, but it wasn't easy to pinpoint.


Thus, I thought about trying the firewall-less F-Secure version, to see if it works:


- Ordered FSCS 11.60 remote uninstallation task from FSPM 11.22 and verified it happened


- After reboot, installed FSAVWKS 11.60. It started to download signature updates from FSPM and after a while, a little pop-up box appeared in the upper left screen corner, saying F-Secure software update is in progress. Within a minute, FSAV WKS completely uninstalled itself!


Question: why is FSPM uninstalling FSAVWKS 11.60 from the endpoint, when the remote uninstall instruction was issued for FSAVCS 11.60? They are different products.
