    At the moment it updates OK, but a box pops up disrupting (or crashing if it's a game) the application that's running.

    According to this http://www.raeinternet.com/fprot/fprotfaq.html#45 you can use Update.exe to silently update but I can't find this file in my F-Prot instalation o_O

    Any ideas?

    The file is Updater.exe. Try using:

    C:\Program Files\FSI\F-Prot\FP-Updater\Updater.exe /HIDDEN

    Does this mean you have to use the XP scheduler with password?

    Try to reinstall. You have the latest version?
    Or just go to www.f-prot.com and click those links.
     
  5. I use this in the XP task scheduler:

    "C:\Program Files\FSI\F-Prot\FP-Updater\Updater.exe" /RUN /QUIT /HIDDEN

    I have it set to run every two days.


    Command line options for F-Prot Antivirus Updater (Updater.exe)

    Command line:
    /RUN : Start a update with given arguments
    /QUIT : Quit after update.
    /LAN : Use local area network
    /INTERNET : Use the internet
    /HIDDEN : Hide the user interface!!!

    Command line behavior
    /RUN
    [Starts update with given settings.]
    /QUIT [/RUN + /QUIT]
    [Starts update with given settings and quit after the update is done.]
    /LAN
    [Set update path to use Local Area Network or a path]
    /INTERNET
    [Set update path to use the Internet]

    It seems to me that /hidden does the following: runs in hidden mode and quits so no need to add /run /quit /hidden. Thats how it works for me.
     
  7. That is true Sealord.
