Some Exede and WildBlue customers have had antivirus software from F-Secure as part of their service plan. Effective Jan. 31, 2017, we will no longer supply or support F-Secure. After this date, you’ll get a notice from F-Secure that your key is no longer active. If you were paying for F-Secure, you will no longer see this charge appear on your Exede or WildBlue bill.

We do require customers to maintain antivirus protection on their home network, so you’ll want to do one of two things:

1. Pay to renew your F-Secure key or get a new one at the F-Secure site.

2. Choose another antivirus solution. You can buy these online or in a computer or other retail stores. You may also use a free version Here’s some information from PC Magazine on some recommended antivirus solutions:

Guess I'm breaking the rules cancel my subscription......cause will be a cold day in hell before an isp dictates what I install on my computer.

It's like leasing a car and car manufacturer forces you to use only 93 octain or they will take it back.

A person that knows what to do and not to do does not need a virus scanner. I know how to clean them and scrub them from my PC If i do manage to get one, all that without using third party software. I've done it 100s of time for compensation on other people's pc's.

Tools like CCleaner and such I don't mind. They don't bog down my PC.

A full fledge virus scanner defiantly impact system performance.
