  1. As I said, that error message is not related to malware. Most likely Windows Defender couldn't get an update from Windows Update.
  2. Hello, It's just something that happened with Windows Defender, probably a failure to download a definition update at some point. It does not indicate malware.
  3. In addition to the above... how often do you do a full scan? With Kaspersky real-time protection, you probably never need to do a full scan again, and if you do, certainly no more than once a month or so. Then, it should be easy to schedule it at a time when you are not doing anything else on the computer that requires system resources. It would be worse if you experienced excessive CPU and memory usage during daily use, but I do think high resource usage during a full scan is to be expected. Even preferred, perhaps, rather than having it go on for twice as long.
  4. You can use your activation code on KIS 2013. You are always allowed to use the latest version of the program for as long as your license is valid. Also, I went to that website a dozen or so times, and it loaded fine every time,
  5. It is, but there is always the possibility (a quite real possibility) that new bugs will be discovered. A few hundred beta testers is one thing, but when one million users suddenly start to use the programs, with any number of combinations of hardware and software, there will be new issues popping up that the beta period didn't discover, at least with a program as complex as Kaspersky. Which is why it can be a good idea to wait a bit of time to let those issues be sorted first. But it is up to you of course. It has obviously been deemed ready for release, so any bugs should (hopefully) be minor. If your computer can run Kaspersky 2012, it can run Kaspersky 2013. Kaspersky 2013 is about the same regarding system resources. A bit lighter if anything. Not major, but a bit.
  6. In addition to the above, if Kaspersky can replace definitions 10 variants of "TrojanX" - "TrojanX.a", "TrojanX.b","TrojanX.c" - and so on, with one defintion - "TrojanX" plain and simple - which covers all variants, the number of definitions will decrease, but protection will stay the same, and the size of downloads for the definitions will decrease = win.
  7. The word "fault" makes it sound like some kind of error, but that is not the case at all with page faults.
  8. Do you get alerts from these links (they are harmless test files, perfectly safe to click. They are used to test if your antivirus program is working, but they don't actually do anything on your system): http://eicar.org/download/eicar.com https://secure.eicar.org/eicar.com
  9. The upper two are infected webpages blocked by Pure. Those infections never made it to your computer. The "infected" part refers to the status of the webpage, not the condition of your system. The bottom three detections are probably for parts of the same trojan; looks like it was in a temp folder on your hard drive when Pure detected it and deleted it. You shouldn't have to do anything at all.
  10. Hello! Where are the trojans to be found? Can you post a screenshot? Chances are what you are seeing are blocked items on infected webpages that never made it onto your system.
  11. 220-230 MB is higher than it should be if you aren't running a scan at that point. If you could provide a GSI report we could take a look if there are conflicts that could cause this. http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showtopic=915
  12. Maybe there simply is a vulnerability in the latest version and Google hasn't patched it yet?
  13. Those were webpages with infected items that were blocked by Kaspersky. They aren't, and never were, on your computer.
  14. With Kaspersky Internet Security, yes, but not with Kaspersky Anti-Virus.
  15. Hello! Please post a GSI log following these easy instructions: http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showtopic=915 It will help see what is causing issues on your system, No personal information is revealed.
  16. Click on your Start Menu, type gadgets in the search box at the bottom, and press Enter. Your Gadget windows should appear. Right-click on the one you want to appear on the desktop and select Add.
  17. These K marka are reputation-based and analysis-based. They will not be updated anywhere near as often as regular antivirus databases. It's totally impossible for Kaspersky or any other security vendor to continually re-analyze websites to keep the rating up-to-date, so unless some other kind of report comes in that a webpage has been hijacked or infected, the mark will not change to red automatically. Which is why the K marks should be taken as a "this website has been analyzed and is probably safe" suggestion, not as a "this website is 100% safe to visit" guarantee. However, every website will still be scanned with the Web-AV and any malicious code will still be blocked, even if the K-mark is green but the website has since been infected.
  18. As I said before, your CPU is running at 50% of the speed it is supposed to run. This will cause slowdowns. You will have to install the latest chipset drivers or firmware for your processor.
  19. Hello! Kaspersky has a guide with illustrated instructions here: http://support.kaspersky.com/kis2012/setti...l?qid=208284434
  20. If you renew now, you can use that activation code with the 2013 version when it is released, and just uninstall the 2012 version and install the 2013 version instead, then activate it with the same code. You are never "stuck with the present format", but can always use the latest version as long as your license is valid.
  21. If you want to. Or you can leave it in quarantine. It can't hurt your system from there.
  22. Your CPU is running at well below the speed it should. In your event viewer log, you get the message "The speed of processor X in group 0 is being limited by system firmware." You should make sure you have the latest chipset drivers for your CPU installed. Having a CPU running at 50% of the speed it should will make programs slow.
