How to uninstall F-Secure Client module?

shezi64 W/ Alumni Posts: 3 Security Scout

I have F-Secure Client Security 12.31 build 105 Client  installed on workstations. Where Client Package Installed with following modules:


F-Secure Clietn Security - Browsing Protection

F-Secure Clietn Security - Deep Guard

F-Secure Clietn Security - Device Control

F-Secure Clietn Security - Email Scanning

F-Secure Clietn Security - Internet Shield

F-Secure Clietn Security - Virus & Spy Protection

F-Secure Clietn Security - Web Traffic Scanning


I want to delet selected module only liek Browing Protection and Web traffic scanning.

I need solution so that I can push this change throug Policy Manger Consol by Distributing Polices rather going to each Workstation for uninstallation of these modules.




Regards /Salah

    There is no built-in solution for that.
    You cound use the uninstall-string from the registry and push that as a scheduled task from PMS to all/selected clients as a one-time-job. If that leaves a tidy installation is not known.

    But tell us, why do you want to get rid of these important modules? Even if you decide not to use them it is wiser to leave them in place for future or emegrgency use and just switch thzem off. Same applies to F-Secure Firewall (latest change will no longer show the yellow "!" if switched off).

    If you have a technical issue with those modules we like them to be sorted out for the benefit of all customers. So please give F-Secure a chance and submit a case + fsdiag.

    Hi MJ,


    Thanks for your reply.


    Reason to remove additinal security modules is because we are working in HSA - Highly Secured Area where Interne in not allowed and Only Virus and Spy Module is allowed to install as per CORPORATE Policy.


    So I need to uninstall them either manually or from PM Consol. If you suggests the steps than please elobrate it.


    2ndly If I switched off the Firewall it still shows YELLOW mark in icon. How do i get rid of Yellow mark keeping Firewall off.

    Hello shezi64,


    Unfortunately, the only one official way is to uninstall the whole product and then install it again with the set of modules you need checked in Remote installation wizard in Policy Manager Console. Alternatively you can export the MSI with proper set of modules, but uninstallation is required in this case as well.


    Best regards,

    To get rid of "!" use an up-to-date Version AND switch the firewall off from policy (lock, not local).
