Hello hope someone can help me with my problem :

I "stupid" installed Escan Antivirus while I had Fsecure Installed
so after uninst. of Escan my Fsecure Av cant update and Windows security alertes me that my Av is off ?

I have reinstalled Fsecure twice and tryed to "system Recreation" then my system gets very unstable and Im getting a Runner Error :
Runner file name (FSPEX.EXE) lacks a - the APP id separator

Hope someone can help me active my Fsecure Av ?

First check 'C:\Program Files' to check that the Escan folder is not still there -- if it is, delete it.

Next, If you feel competent with using Registry Editor (Start>Run----type REGEDIT--- click OK, you can use 'find' to search for all instances of ESCAN and remove them.

Alternatively (and safer to use), download 'Startup Control Panel' from here: http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml -- This will show you everything that get's loaded at Windows startup.
Any entries referring to Escan should be either:
(a) Deleted if you are sure it's part of Escan, or
(b) Disabled if you aren't sure it's part of Escan


Now re-install F-Secure and see if it works properly.
