  1. I almost never use IE except for updating Windows. My browser of choice is Firefox, although I will occasionally use Chrome from time to time. Are there any plans to include other browsers for security analysis of settings in future PURE versions?
  2. Ok, so after it wasn't able to be installed I figured maybe the download was corrupted. I deleted the previous download and re-downloaded the program. Before attempting to install, I decided to remove ThreatFire. It's something I've been thinking of doing for a while. I was unable to uninstall it using its own uninstall feature nor via Add/Remove due to a missing file. I installed RevoUninstaller and got rid of it that way to include all leftover registry entries and 266 leftover files and rebooted. Then I tried to install PURE 3.0 again, but this one wouldn't install either and I was then prompted to install Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool. I did that and scanned finding no threats. Not knowing what else to try I tried to install it again and this time it worked. Not sure what the quirk was. So now am up and running PURE 3.0. Initially the password manager file (can't recall the name) worked the cpu harder than ever avp.exe did and I thought I had a new problem; but after updating the database and another reboot, that problem went away. Although avp.exe did work the cpu a bit after the reboot, it seems to have done it in a little less time than before. Unsure yet if my problem is solved. Will have to test it over the next few weeks. Thanks to all who responded with advice.
  3. While I may uninstall TF at some point, I'm not going to uninstall Ad-Aware simply to shave some seconds off of loading into Windows. I uninstalled my old PURE, downloaded and installed the new version; but when I tried to start it I get the following message: starter_avp.exe - Application Error The instruction at 0x71b00409 referenced memory at 0x012f30b7. The memory could not be written. Click on OK to terminate the program.
  4. I don't know what you are using to view the report; but mine opens up in Notepad and while I may have missed it, I scrolled though it 3 times and could find no "Summary" or "Suspicious" headings. The following are the ones I found (the ones where two or more words run together is how the report shows them): Time, BIOS, Processor, OperatingSystem, ComputerSystem, Environment, Printer, VideoController, DesktopMonitor, SoundDevice, NTLogEvent, LogicalDisk, InstalledProduct, Process, Services, NetworkAdapter, SystemDriver, Registry, BHO, PnPSignedDriver, Share, OpenPorts, HOSTS, ExecutableINFolder, AVState, ErrorLog, MD5 [edit]OK, so I figured out you had to view it online on the GSI website. Lol But you want me to uninstall all of the rest of my security programs just so Kaspersky runs ok? I think not.[/edit] If default settings work; but my settings do not, what does this say about the product? Windows Defender is disabled. Would migrating to the current version solve the problem?
  5. I originally posted in the other thread of the same name; but I didn't get any replies, so in case you need to post new each and every time.. My Kaspersky PURE is on a desktop and I get high cpu usage from avp.exe every time on startup. It doesn't matter whether it's a cold boot or a reboot. It takes me about 10-15 seconds to get into Windows from boot, but then avp.exe runs the cpu hard for another 20-30 seconds or so and I have to wait untill it's done. I've looked at my settings and see that all scans are set to run manually. The only automatically set feature is a daily update at midnight (I usually run the PC 24/7 rebooting every 4 days or so). Heuristic analysis for files is set to light, for mail medium, for web medium, for IM medium. I have compatibility set to concede resources to other applications. I have gaming profile on with all options checked. I send feedback to the Kaspersky security network. Looking at all of the settings does not tell me the reason for the high cpu usage on startup. I recently started using Rainmeter and use Gmail, Facebook and news feeds on the desktop via it. Would the medium setting for heuristic analysis for the web or mail be causing it? Or sending feedback..? Here is my SysInfo report: http://www.getsysteminfo.com/read.php?file...c4b8b548699eda8
  6. I don't mean to hijack the thread, but I have the exact same problem and since the original poster seems to have been answered.. My Kaspersky PURE is on a desktop and I get high cpu usage from avp.exe every time on startup.

I've looked at my settings and see that all scans are set to run manually. The only automatically set feature is a daily update at midnight (I run the PC 24/7 rebooting every 5 days or so).
