My computer has slowed down drastically this week. The issue appears to be the fssm32.exe process, it always runs at 45-60% CPU in my task manager. It worked great for a long time, and just recently has started to be a huge drain on my system.

Can anybody help me?

That is a known problem with F-Secure. What is your current version ?

Do you use the parental control feature ? If so turn that element off and see if that makes a difference

This is a problem that F-Secure have had for a few years and they have never quite got round to fixing it yet

Hey =) ya I'm trying to fix a computer in my home with same problem on XP, Ive run it in safe mode and done diagnostics but ended up with the same situation you had with Fssm32.exe, even a simple system restore left me with the same problem. When I UN-installed F secure everything was fine again. P.s my Parental contorl was off while it went nuts and slowed down my CPU. Do you have any info at all that could help us resolve this issue? if you do that would be great =) thanks for replying to the other guy, at least I know im not alone =P
