  1. I vertualize my disk changes so that I can ALWAYS discard changes after I get off the Internet, leaving everything perfectly safe from viruses since I can even discard disk corruption. So my use is wonderfully safe. I simply turn on my computer, user Updater to make my Internet Security virus list current, and then start vertualizing changes to my disk so that if I run into trouble I can discard them. (I can even reboot without stopping the vitualization). For the next few days I never shutdown, just put my computer to sleep. Everything looks as if I didn't do anything, with anti virus auto updated etc. However, if I run into a problem or suspect adware or other bad actors, or decide to do on-line banking, I simply discard all the virtual changes, and my disk is bit for bit exactly the same as before I started the vitualization. Thus I can get a real bad actor in my machine that trashes my disk...and it doesn't matter. I just reboot while discarding the virtualization and everything is sweet again except that I need to refresh updater on another machine and apply it before I start vertualizing again. I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR YEARS USING UPDATER AND I NEED IT OR SOMETHING LIKE IT TO MAINTAIN MY MULTI-MACHINE INTERNET SECURITY SUBSCRIPTION. So if Updater is going away, what replaces it and how can I again keep my mahcines updated off line? I am NOT about to use a network solution if I can help it. The way I am doing ti now is MUCH SAFER. So what you got to say?
  2. OS Windows 7 64x The Helps are out of date for KU GUI 2012 ( and interface picks for 32/64 bit applications are disabled. So I am wondering if Updater is fully functional for IS2013 In other words, the newest updater is KU GUI 2012 ( and there is no KU GUI 2013. So my first question: KU supports KIS, but does it support KIS The application filter choices used to include "32 bit application", "64 bit application", and "32 and 64 bit applications" but these are still on the list but menu picks are disabled. So my second question: Are 64 bit applications on my computer covered by Updater and KIS 2013 Thanks, JS
  3. Not a good answer....first of all you assume there is no point in running both, and in fact there is, for reasons I don't wish to discuss. Second you assuming I am running it for the virtual environment. I am not...there are other reasons. Third, I didn't ask for direction whether I should use something or not. I asked if there were conflicts. So my question is still there. Are there conflicts or not? With this technology there is or there isn't. So which is it? Are they compatible or not? Am I correct in assuming you don't know if there are risks or not?
  4. I was afraid to run "Safe Run" when I was running Acronis "Try and Decide", because the are both virtual environments. Try and Decide can't be run with chkdsk and other such disk utilities, so if the Safe Run protected virtual environment goes that deep there might be a problem. I am hoping it will be fine because Try and Decide runs at a level below high level disk formating. So, am I going to be OK to run them together? Thanks,
  5. SUGGESTION: Those are good comments. Now how about a systematic contextual mapping of comments like these to the view of every page in KIS with super easy access way of getting at it, such as a mouse pass over the help link before the help link is actually selected? Why? The shortest possible path is the most effective path possible...always.
  6. Also, why in the world can't you people fix these things so they can be manipulated from any view rather than having to drill down and hack them in some strange obscure and hard to find context? And why do you have fix buttons that don't fix, process buttons that don't process, quarantine buttons that don't recognize selections, and reports that show you the problems but don't have any item contextual hooks to fix them or at least guide you to a context where they can be fixed? There doesn't seem to be functional contextual menu picks to deal with these problems in these two windows...in fact the only menu picks that might help seem to be disabled.
  7. Last night I posted http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?&showtopic=178007 This is the updater forum. There are a lot of views, but no responses. I don't want to update my definitions until I get some direction on the Updater situation from Kaspersky Please respond to http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?&showtopic=178007 and let me know whats up. Thanks, JS

  9. OK it has come up in virus status and here it is: name: PDM.keylogger kernal mode memory patch application: Absent What do I do? Should I track it down, see what it is, and get rid of it? How do I do that?
  10. OK, I notice that there is no "Local" on the Windows 7 side, just "Public", "Work", & "Home", for the same wireless network SSID that I set as "Local" in KIS. I am assuming that Public is the correct option on the Windows side since it doesn't refer to the kind of restrictions, but the kind of environment to be prepared for. Am I right about this? Now I had run the network as Kaspersky>>firewall>>Network>>Public for a couple of weeks before I set it as you suggest, but in the Windows public options I had things pretty much restricted or turned off in regard to file sharing. Do you think I was OK?
  11. I am new to wireless and I have set up a WPA2-psk network, and I am using MAC address lists and hide the non-intuitively spelled SSID. I want to share fies between two computers both of which are running KIS under Windows 7. There seems to be several ways to do this and I would prefer it with KIS/Windows 7 software unless more software would make a significant improvement in security. What is the generally recommended choice for setting up safe wireless file sharing, and should it or should it not involve more than KIS & Windows 7 already installed software? AND whatever I do, can I do this and feel confident that I am doing it safely?
  12. I wasn't able to get it to show the behavior again. I guess I will just wait until I see it again. I didn't catch it in real time, but it came up in a report that I lost when I re-installed KIS. Are those old reports hanging around anywhere that I can find? I suspect not because when I reinstalled I didn't save anything except licensing.
  13. Kaspersky had been telling me for a while that there was a program in the Kernel that had the characteristics of a known keylogger but may have been put there by legit application. I'm sorry but I don't remember the specifics, but the name was 3 letters in caps, a period and I think something about keylogger. I didn't have time to deal with it for a couple of weeks so when I got around trying to track it down and decide what to do about it. My database was corrupted so re-installed Kaspersky will all default options and brought it up to date. I then did a full scan in Safe mode following the instructions: Kaspersky>>support>>fastrack>>Start fast track for KIS>>virus fighting>>I think I'm infected>>....>>Do a full scan. The scan did NOT find the kernel Key logger. It worries me and I would like to track it down. I think that KIS picked up on it because it caught it in action, but I don't really know. What do I do? PS. Although I have a fast i7 machine I have seen initial pauses whenever I type in browser URLs as well as several other places that involve keyboard input. That is a CHANGE in behavior that I didn't use to have. Otherwise things seem to work fairly cleanly.
