Read and learn, dont seems to be any harm for the computer but: Windows starts up real slow after installing F-Secure product, fssm32.exe taking up all CPU time for certain period, and they tell that you can do something about it. Just read!

F-Secure is wellaware of this problem. If you contact them they send you a file that takes a diagnosis of your system. After they check it out they send you a file together with very accurate information on how to switch a file in your system and insert the one sent. That handled my problem entirely.

Constantly coming up with errors, and leaving the computer in a state where it won't do anything and needs to be restarted. Very frustrating...Especially during exam season.
