  1. No, same here. In windows, if you create a new folder, say using the snipping tool,it appears, you name the folder, click on the folder, name the save file and save it.
  2. Even the most compatible system I ever used/managed (called OpenVMS) was NOT necessarily 100% compatible on a 3 major version difference. Times change. Methods change. Some things just do not work 3 versions later. Try windows XP to Windows 8. Anyway... Take screen shots of the configuration pages where you made changes. You could use them for reference if the following two ideas don't work. There is a way to save settings in KIS2013. I am a user and therefore cannot guarantee that the saved settings will successfully restore on anything but 2013. It is something you could try, however. The way to save the settings is: GUI > Settings > Manage Settings > Export > (specify a file name, like KIS2013) > Save You could then try to Import the settings via a similar method (replace Export with Import in the method above) Of course, you would only try the Import if the following failed to work: When uninstalling KIS2013, you should see a series of check boxes. One of these would be to keep the operational settings of the application. Just read the text carefully and make sure you keep them. After installing the latest version, check to see if the configuration changes you made are there. If not, try the import. It might work - you never know your luck. FWIW, in the case of security applications, it is, at best, a questionable practice running so far behind, version-wise. Attack methods change, so defence methods need to change. Keeping security software up to date is very important. Not doing so is ... risky.
  3. Several things come to mind. If you purchased from Kaspersky and/or registered via your e-mail address, then contacting Kaspersky Support, explaining your situation and confirming the e-mail address, they should resend the key there. If not registered, but you activated the license on other machines, and have your purchase details handy, you could contact Kaspersky support, give them the details they ask for from the other machine/s and your purchase details (they might ask), and they should give you the key. If not activated on other machines, but you have your purchase details handy, you could contact Kaspersky support and, after verification, you should receive your activation key. Once you have done that, I recommend you save that key on the My Kaspersky web site. That way, if you lose the key info again, you can just log into My Kaspersky and retrieve the key from there.

  4. Welcome to the user forum. There was a thread about this some time ago - http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showtopic=314349 In part, there's a KIS configuration step recommended there that may attack the root cause. Perhaps try that?
  5. Welcome to the user forum. Just a guess - is Idle Scan still selected? See Performance in the settings.
  6. Welcome to the forum. Correctly configured, I find Kaspersky Internet Security is very good on W10. Note that I'm not in any way affiliated with Kaspersky - I'm just a user like most other members of this user forum. I do recommend the product, but leave the choice to the user. An ISS that provides strong protection tends to be a little intolerant of other software attempting to perform similar tasks. Absolutely correct. Buying without testing can lead to disappointment. Take your time to test Kaspersky - the longer it's on the system, the better it runs. I'd suggest it's one of the best. Just configure it correctly and it works very well. Kaspersky is very up-front with what limitations exist in their products. There are a number of technically qualified people who choose/recommend their products. I'm not a person who stays with a product because I've paid to use it. I moved to Kaspersky 3 months into a 2 year license for another product, years ago, after a "paid" article piqued my interest and I tested it. I'm still using the product while testing it and others. I've found no reason to move away. Hope this helps. :bt:
  7. If you would send the list of sites to be checked to them as explained above, I'm sure they'd reassess them. If a site becomes known for hosting malware, it needs to be reassessed to either confirm or alter that status. As far as I know reassessing sites is not an automatic thing.
  8. Just adding to my last point. If you're on a public network, about to do financial transactions, and the browser does not show HTTPS://(site), and you're not using a VPN, then don't do the transaction. Don't even log on. Wait until you're connected to a secure network to do them.
  9. That's good to hear. Was your PC guaranteed clean when you installed and configured Kaspersky? Depending on what you interpret that to mean, quite true. KIS has absolutely NO control over packets that have left your PC. There is nothing that actually does. In some countries it's a guarantee that at least a portion of your transmission is saved, somewhere by someone by (public or secret) government decree. Nobody can prevent someone intercepting (sniffing) packets on the Internet. Chrome has, what they call MITM (Man In The Middle) protection, but that only alerts for some attacks. There are many ways to intercept packets. If your Kaspersky was installed on a CLEAN PC and configured correctly, and you are careful about what you allow and disallow, it is MOST unlikely that attacks will get through. It does NOT stop someone on the Internet (somewhere out there) from sniffing packets. KIS attempts (quite well) to stop them at the front door, or when something tries to perform a "malicious act" on the PC. The objective of Safe Money is to attempt to provide a secure and safe environment while you're doing financial transactions. If your PC and Kaspersky are configured correctly (green border and no error messages), then it's deemed by Kaspersky to be safe. Notice that you cannot screenshot while in Safe Money? It's just one way that protects you from "attack". You should however only use Safe Money specifically for financial transactions. This means: get into Safe Money, do the financial transactions, then get out of Safe Money. Never go to other sites while in Safe Money. The sandbox has no control over Internet intercepted packets as the sandbox is on the PC. If the PC was successfully penetrated while using the Sandbox, then data intercepted in a Sandbox MAY be transmitted on the Internet. What's worse is that on exiting the Sandbox, the attack that did the damage disappears. Using a VPN would likely be much safer. All packets on public WiFi could be captured. Cracking a VPN to view the packets would take quite some time. The reason why Kaspersky alerts for public WiFi is because neither Kaspersky nor any other software can prevent packet sniffing. All you can do is make it hard for them to decrypt the packets. Being paranoid doesn't mean it won't happen. I hope that makes sense.
  10. I can't answer that with any authority. If Internet transactions are normally all HTTP, with no VPN, no obfuscation, compression or encrypted by a client, then I'd suggest all transmissions are in clear text. From that we can conclude that any attempt to view your transmissions and data would be successful, because it's all in clear text. That could happen anywhere between the client (you) and the server (at Saxon Capital or where ever). My test here comes back with "no/empty response" for HTTP and "connection refused" for HTTPS. This suggests that their servers may be down or perhaps a VPN is needed to connect - this matches my tests just after the first post in this thread. In terms of your PC protection, if Kaspersky is configured correctly and updated, your PC should be protected. This does NOT guarantee Saxon Capital transaction security, simply because it's over the Internet. As stated above, there needs to be some sort of encryption to provide (some) protection there.
  11. Solution: GUI > Protection > Anti Banner > Allowed List > Add > http://onceux.unicornmedia.com/now/* Refresh the page. The issue is that this, like some other sites, will not play without ads AND they check for it.
  12. If you need to roll back, the best way is to: * Download the appropriate 2015 version of KAV, KIS or KTS) from Kaspersky (something like www.kaspersky.com/productupdates) * Have your license handy * Uninstall Kaspersky 2016 and reboot * Install the version you downloaded * Activate * Check the version is * Start the update * Configure Kaspersky * Wait for the update to complete * Reboot * Check the version is (d). This would likely install a much earlier version than and I wouldn't recommend this process.
  13. Sorry, I should have been clearer. Have you checked with the Dr Web support people to see if the detection is a false positive? I'm thinking this might be the issue, if that makes sense.
  14. AVPUI is Kaspersky's graphical user interface... It might be a false positive. Have you checked with Dr Web?
