Softpedia Editor's Review for F-Secure Uninstallation Tool
Removal tool for all recent F-Secure products
Written by Andreea Matei on April 16th, 2013
F-Secure Uninstallation Tool is a handy software removal application designed as an alternative to the default uninstallation process for products issued by F-Secure.
F-Secure Uninstallation Tool carries the expected results on machines that host an installation of F-Secure Antivirus of F-Secure Internet Security for which the normal uninstallation process fails. It is not recommended to run this removal utility without trying the default method first.
The software is also able to delete installations for other F-Secure products, such as Protection Services for Consumers / Business and F-Secure Technology Preview editions.
Before running F-Secure Uninstallation Tool, you are advised to perform a backup of your important files, as well as to close all active applications. As soon as you press the ‘Start’ button, the software starts scanning the computer for existing installations and once these are detected, an in-depth removal process is launched.
The removal process varies in length, depending on the complexity of the products installed on the system. If more than one F-Secure product is detected, a longer uninstallation operation is to be expected.
When the application finishes clearing F-Secure traces, a computer reboot is required. This is necessary because reminisces of the uninstalled products can only be deleted during boot. It is recommended to check if the process was successful with a quick peek in the Add / Remove section of the Control Panel. If there are no F-Secure listings in there, you can rest assured that the utility did its job properly.
During our tests, F-Secure Uninstallation Tool behaved nicely and succeeded in removing the product we had installed in less than a few minutes, which is decent, by any standard.
In conclusion, you can rely on this nifty application to remove one or more F-Secure installations if and only if the default removal method doesn’t pay the expected results.
