Removal


Automatic action

Once detected, the F-Secure security product will automatically quarantine the suspect file and prompt the user to select a further desired action.

Quarantine is a safe repository for files that may be harmful. A quarantined file can be restored or, if you decide so, deleted.


Excluding a file from scanning

If you are aware of and accept any potential risk associated with this program, you can configure the F-Secure security product to exclude it from scanning.

Suspect a False Alarm?

If you suspect a file has been incorrectly identified as malicious, (that is, it is a False Alarm or a False Positive), please first ensure your F-Secure security program is up-to-date with the latest detection database updates, then rescan the suspect file.

If you continue to suspect a False Alarm, you may submit a sample of the suspect file to our Security Labs for further analysis via the Submit A Sample (SAS) page.

More scanning & removal options

More information on scanning and removal options available in your F-Secure product can be found in the Help Center.

You may also refer to the Knowledge Base on the F-Secure Community site for more information.
