    Fssm32.exe is a component of F-Security Software. Its main purpose is to offer your F-security Antivirus or Internet Security program real-time monitoring and scanning to trace malicious files that can damage your computer. It launches automatically at startup and consumes a lot of computer memory in order to function. Do not remove this process unless it's creating system problems. If you have to remove it, disabling it and removing it from startup takes little time.

  • Thanks Rick, that does answer it. F-secure is the provider for my "Charter Security Suite". I will hang onto it. It did finally catch up and stop using so much processor time.
