Create & Send FSDIAG File
If you have technical problems with Security Suite, you can create and send an FSDIAG file to technical support. The file helps us solve technical problems specific to your computer.
You can create the file by using the Diagnostic Utility tool. The tool gathers vital information about your system and creates a group of log files. These log files contain information about your security product, as well as operating system logs and system settings. In some cases, this information might be considered confidential. All data collected by the Diagnostic Utility tool is stored locally on your computer.

The Security Suite software updates itself automatically. If you receive a message indicating Security Cloud is currently unavailable, verify you're connected to the internet. Once connected, the Security Suite database will automatically update and the messaging will indicate all security features are up to date.
