  1. It all doesn't work to block, each time the warning pops up. But discovered more: I tried Parental Control to block (which also doesn't work) and in that log, this pops up numerous times: https://ee345629296443b9a23edbf791ba84d8.nrb.footprintdns.com/apc/trans.gif .... so indeed it looks like a tracking pixel of some kind. So *.*.footprintdns.com is blocked by Parental Control now but the pop-up warning for the certificate still is there. And it gives the question: where is the pixel loaded? In a mail, in the GUI of Outlook?
  2. Okay, totally offtopic ... but I want to manually block that *.*.footprintdns.com .... but how or where do you manually block something in KIS 2019? KIS does a great job by itself but the option to manually do something is very very well hidden it seems
  3. Kind of the same here: Outlook 365. KIS 2019 (latest version) suddenly start whining that the authenticity of the domain can not be guaranteed. The name of the certificate is not valid. But when the certificate is checked, it is just fine. The URL provide by plb4333 is most clarifying. Gonna block that footprintdns.com and see what happens.
  4. Well, that's nice. Google Chrome 69 is advising (in Settings, all the way down " Update and delete inappropriate apps") to remove the Kaspersky Internet Security app since it can cause problems and conflicts in the browser. Seems more and more programs and applications are having difficulties with KIS . First Java, then Office 365 and now Chrome too .....
  5. Just a heads up/tip. Yesterday my Office 365 (on Windows 10 Pro) suddenly gave me the Activation Wizard and after trying to activate, the Microsoft servers were not available. Tried this morning and just now but the same problem. Tried multiple things but nothing helped. What solved the problem was to close KIS 2019 (so not Pause) and run an Office 365 application, in my case Outlook. And everything was fine: no Activation Wizard or whatever. Started KIS 2019 again and Office was still fine. So when someone encounters something like this, try to close KIS and see if that solves the problem.
  6. Well, I did contact support. First they said they could reproduce the problem. But a mail later I had to alter and change all kind of settings within Windows 10 to see if that fixed the problem? Felt like some kind of guinea pig ..... I know they try to help but in the end I did not follow that advise because it would totally change the way I have my Windows 10 set up. The B version of KIS 2019 still has the bug though. It even got worse: even Google pages are now refusing at random to load when "Scan secured connections" within KIS 2019 is enabled.
  7. Well, I got mixed reactions from Support now. I got one reaction stating that they can reproduce the problem and it is escalated to another department. And a reaction which is asking me to alter my whole system (remove "incompatible" programs), Chrome settings, some kind of cleaner that cleans my hosts-file (among others) and so on. And if that is not working, forcing a clean Windows start with all kind of things disabled. In theory that is save but in the real world then can cause big troubles when restarting with things enabled again because Win 10 is not recognizing it anymore. It is a long list and it feels a bit like I am a guinea pig .... Will wait for now for other reactions and/or bug fix. For now I have SSL Scan in KIS 2019 disabled and everything works fine.
  8. Here the same problem with KIS 2019 and Chrome. Reported it just now at Customer Support. Hope they fix it soon.
  9. Ok, great to hear!! Really was worried that Windows 10 update messed up everything ... but after reading same problems with Windows 7 and KIS 2016, the database was indeed probably the cause.
  10. Ok, did some more researching .... looks like when KIS is active, my CPU it throttling way lower. At idle it's at 0.8 GHz and then with opening browser and adding tabs, there is just a tiny spike to around 2.4 GHz bust mostly very low, between 0.8 and 1.7 GHz. The sane with browsing and opening files on SSD and HD. With KIS paused, the idle is also 0.8 GHz but it throttles to 3.85 GHz spikes and is way more active in the > 3.0 GHz range with browser with tabs and on SSD and HD. Oh, and KIS is now busy with a rootkitscan for over 2 hours!
  11. KIS was working fine with Windows 10. But yesterday Windows 10 (Version 1607) did a update to build 14393.953. Now my internet connection (mail, http, everything) is at a crawl when KIS is active. The KIS icon is blinking the whole time but there is no CPU usage, no memory, no disk activity, nothing in the KIS screen that a scan or whatever is going on. When I pause KIS, the internet connection is just fine. Everything is like it should be. Edit: it is far worse: my whole Windows 10 is way slower when KIS is enabled. Opening a file takes way longer now with KIS active. PLaying a movie takes a long time before it opens. When KIS paused it all works just fine. Download speeks with or without KIS are just fine. It is effecting the opening of pages, loading of mail and so on, on my PC itself.
  12. I just updated to KIS2017 ... and very sad to see that Kaspersky now also is installing bloatware. Cause that is what Kaspersky Secure Connection in KIS2017 is. Please Kaspersky, make these kind of things an optional install. Not a install that you can remove later. And if you do make a part of it, don't lower yourself to this kind of "trail" (or in other words: bloatware) stuff. Make it available or not. Not this max 200mb b*llsh*t. Been using Kaspersky for many years and slowly but surely it seems that all kind of unwanted stuff is finding it's way into KIS
  13. I couldn't agree more. If I wanted this kind of protection, I would have bought Kaspersky Total Protection. Now this Software Cleaner (but also the Software Updater) is part of KIS. At least make it optional to use, not On By Default like it is now.
