I keep getting the pop up that says: ffcert had a problem and has to close - do I want to report it" I always say no. The 60 million dollar question - is it s virus, malware etc. Anyone know?? Thanks

Hello!

 

I did a little research into this and I found out that ffcert.exe is a process associated with Kaspersky Anti-Virus. Do you have that installed on your computer?

 

I also found a page to help you fix the problem here:

If you struggle to fix it, or don't feel comfortable, I would recommend getting in touch with Kaspersky tech support!

 

Best,

Haruki
