alca trazom ffsm32 on my computer makes it lag a lot because it consumes huge amounts of RAM (up to 100 MB)
Dad It is the security suite offered by Charter Cable internet service. It didn't install correctly on another machine I have. The firewall bumped into something on my machine and it won't work correctly now. I use windows firewall and don't need the Charter firewall.
It takes up 99% cpu and 90+% ram bringing system toa complete stop. Uninstall f-secure in safe mode to fix
Installed when I Installed Shaw Secure F-secure
D Mountain Ash It's using 123MB RAM on my machine!
It eats up alot of processing power and RAM.
Tomislav F-Secure component, consumes a lot of memory
bruce It is a core component of the F-Secure Realtime Protection
shaw user F-Secure component-Shaw Secure2.0-security system file. Consumes huge amounts of memory!
Landström F-Secure, remove the whole program using safe mode and install a decent Anti virus such as Kaspersky or Nod32
Mgreer Consume too much memory, i uninstall it and my comuter its running perfectly after
Robert Tolman Verified: it is part of F-Secure security suite, located in the security suite folder. If it is located elsewhere, it may be a virus... In some PCs it may not work properly,especially if some other antivirus or firewall is running.
gr33nman Ironically, F-Secure tattled on it's own fssm32.exe, asking me whether to allow or disallow. If it's located at "C:\Program Files\F-Secure\Anti-Virus", the file is genuine. Otherwise it's like an infection. Don't use the Charter branded version of F-Secure if you can avoid it. It's garbage. Buy the unbranded version directly from F-Secure, or use something else. Don't depend on Windows firewall. There's no anti-virus, and the firewall itself is riddled with holes.
aaron also in charter security
psyber7 Integral to F-secure firewall/antivirus. Charter Communications offers this security suite free to all its internet customers. This program does tend to use a lot of RAM and CPU at times thus hanging the computer occasionally
It's using more than 300MB RAM !!! and grows up
I got this when i installed the security program from Shaw Cable.
kingroberson part of Embarq Online Sec Ste. takes alot of memory. Embarq rep said that it updates ste. I do it manually and use Win Firewall.
