the implementation of AVZ Antiviral Toolkit in Kaspersky products was an excellent step forward, some of them can really help in healing a badly infected system by restoring important settings in the registry to their default/recommended values, analyzing critical areas of the system and giving recommendations etc.
But as hard as I try, I fail to see the purpose of the Activity Traces Cleanup tool in Kaspersky AV Is it really necessary in a security product, is cleaning usage tracks (opened documents, typed URLs), prefech folder and other trivial things useful or is it a step to bloatware? Please, leave that usage/activity cleanup to other tools specifically made for that purpose like CCleaner etc. Maybe this thread had to be opened before, it's probably too late now (even if we are still at alpha stage) but I would like to see what other users think of this.
I understand that KL folks studied the market/users requests and decided to implement this as a response to the demands of the market. There are more and more million-in-one security products like OneCare, BitDefender Total Security, Norton 360 which do all sorts of stuff not related to computer security (fighting against malware). I have been a longtime Kaspersky user/fan and I loved the simplicity, but now I (and dare I say "We") don't like where this is going so I opened this thread in search of other users opinions.
If I could be in the Developers place I would remove the Activity Traces Cleanup and move the Browser Settings in Online security tasks (we do use Browsers in Online activities ). Or if it is too late I would love to see an option when installing to un-check some tasks (modularity is one of Kasperskys great features).
KIS = Keep It Simple... please Don't go in the bloatware/fatware area...
