  1. Hi all. Seriously, quick technical questions on web tracking: 1. Does the current version of KTS (v18) provide any protection against "canvas fingerprinting"? 2. If so, does it have it for the current versions of each of Chrome, Firefox, MSIE, and Edge? I've searched Google with the terms canvas kaspersky. No hits there. And I've searched the English/Home Protection parts of this forum for canvas. All I found was a user named Kanvas. So nothing here either. This is what got me interested: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/10/30/firefox_canvas_privacy_tor/ https://securityboulevard.com/2017/10/firefox-takes-a-bite-out-of-the-canvas-super-cookie/ I mostly use Chrome, and if KTS is not protecting me, this is available for canvas protection for Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/canvas-defender/obdbgnebcljmgkoljcdddaopadkifnpm?hl=en But no point in installing another Chrome plug-in (another thing to go wrong) if I'm already protected by KTS. Much thanks in advance to anyone who can dig up the info for me. - Keith Keywords: tracking, Canvas API, Canvas, canvas fingerprinting, privacy, KTS
  2. So it's been a year now. Any update on when MS and Kaspersky will get together and create a plug-in for Edge?
  3. I was searching the US main product website and I didn't see KSC mentioned, not even as a feature of KTS. In particular, I recall when installing KTS last time that it gave a 6 month time limit and a data limit for KSC. I wanted to check what those are, and check for the price afterwards. I hope Kaspersky is not considering dropping KSC so soon. I do want to use it, but I want a chance for it to be mature a bit first. A year perhaps, depending on what forum posts say and whether it has features allowing it to be compliant with the ecommerce and banking sites I use. I'm a long time Kaspersky customer (over 11 years), and I recommend Kaspersky to my friends and family. But I don't rush into new features right away. It is the same with Software Updater and Software Cleaner. At the moment I'm using them as advisory and do the update or uninstall myself. That doesn't mean I don't intend to use the features after they've been around for a year. - Keith
  4. Actually, you can ignore my previous post for now. It seems for now the pop-up is disappearing on its own now much faster than it did before, and that is good enough.
  5. It is now September 2016. Has anything changed since January 2013? I'd really really like to see this too. I find people, including myself, turn secure data input off rather than fuss trying to hide the needlessly big and obtrusive pop-up.
  6. Does KTS have a feature to scan network traffic for any email or any unencrypted web traffic with credit card numbers, social insurance or national identity numbers, etc.? If it doesn't, where would I post to request such a feature? Thanks. - Keith
  7. It makes some sense to me that Kaspersky would have Windows 10 support going sooner for consumer versions than commercial versions. Businesses are usually more conservative in moving to new hardware and software, they want stability on their production machines much more than they want newness. Of course large and medium sized businesses will have some computers that are used for testing, and they'll often want those running on bleeding edge technology -- so there is the problem.
  8. I'm a long time Kaspersky user. Currently I've got Kaspersky Total Security 15. Does Kaspersky Total Security currently have a component to compete with F-Secure's "Freedome" (it seems to be a VPN service)? https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/home_global/freedome A reasonably priced VPN service run by a top respected AV company is something I'd pay for. But I have a strong preference for Kaspersky. Thanks. - Keith
  9. In light of the recent Superfish problem, I'd like to suggest an option in Kaspersky products to scan security certificates and root certificates and report on anything unusual. http://arstechnica.com/security/2015/02/how-to-remove-the-superfish-malware-what-lenovo-doesnt-tell-you/
  10. Hi Feeeel - Unless there has been a change, the remaining license period continues when updating to the latest version of the same Kaspersky product. So KIS 2013 to KIS 2014, and next year to KIS 2015 is free within the validity period of your license. Or KAV 2013 to KAV 2014, and next year to KAV 2015 is free within the validity period of your license. I updated from KIS 2011 to KIS 2012 to KIS2013 to KIS2014, and each year the remaining few of months of my annual license period carried forward. So unless there has been a change in this long standing Kaspersky corporate policy within the last 3 months you won't loose out by updating to the latest version of the same product. But take the precaution of writing your license key down on paper. (This doesn't work if you're going from KAV 2013 to KIS 2014 because that is changing the product. To change the product you need a new license.) I hope this helps. - Keith
  11. Thank you mods for merging this. I did do a scan to see if there was an existing topic on it, but searched for autodsk and scan disk. It is good to keep it all together. I am working with Luis in the lab, support ticket 315256938. I just want to add the specific error message so anyone else with this issue can find searching on the message contents (if they dig out a camera to take a photo of the screen as it whips by during re-boot). Checking file system on C: The type of the file system is NTFS. Volume label is OS-IntelSSD A disk check has been scheduled. Windows will now check the disk. Cannot open volume for direct access. Autochk cannot run due to an error caused by a recently installed software package. Use the system restore feature from the control panel to restore the system to a point prior to the recent software package installation. An unspecified error occurred (766f6c756d652e63 3f1). Uninstalling KIS2014 from the Control Panel removes the error and allows Scandisk to run. (The uninstall options were to remove everything but the product validation/keys). Re-installing KIS2014 causes the error to return. So the lab is working on it. Hopefully they'll have it fixed in a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, if you really need to run a scan disk on your system disk, the bypass is to temporarily uninstall KIS, run the scan, and re-install it. Not a good fix, just a temporary bypass.
  12. The GETSYSTEMINFO link is http://www.getsysteminfo.com/read.php?file...230373709657385 The operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit edition with all the standard Windows Updates applied. I also opened a support ticket on this, request number: 315256938.
  13. It appears there is a compatibility problem between KIS 2014 and AUTODSK ( SCANDISK, DISK CHECK) in Windows 7 Home Premium. This problem occurs after installing KIS 2014. It goes away when KIS 2014 is removed through the Windows Control Panel. It returns when KIS 2014 is re-installed. Procedure to replicate problem: 1. Go into Windows File Manager or My Computer. 2. Right-click on the C: drive. 3. Select Properties. 4. Select Tools. 5. Under Error-Checking click the Check Now button. 6. Ensure "Automatically fix file system errors" is selected and "Scan for and attempt recovery of ..." is not selected. 7. Click Start. 8. Click "Schedule disk check". 9. Go to the Start button and select to re-start the computer. 10. Watch the disk check count down and attempt to start. 11. I see an error: Cannot open volume for direct access AUTOCHK cannot run due to ... [general stuff about a recently installed program and run System Restore] 12. Windows then boots. 13. Uninstall KIS 2014 and repeat steps 1 12 again -- problem goes away. 14. Reinstall KIS 2014 and repeat steps 1 to 12 again -- problem returns. If I recall a couple of years ago there was a tool to upload my system specs to Kaspersky Labs and create a link to post here. I'll do that in a moment. (Note, I also had Acronis 2014 installed, but uninstalling it did not remove the error. I have left Acronis uninstalled during troubleshooting.)
  14. As the moderators have pointed out, we cannot persuade Kaspersky management through forum postings. Forum postings are for people ask about unclear documentation and for other people to share work-arounds. Those unhappy with Kaspersky's repeated incompatibility with pretty much every new Firefox version this past 12 months, please open a "request" with Kaspersky's official support staff here: https://my.kaspersky.com/en/support/helpdesk Only by customers directly expressing to Kaspersky executives, sales management and technical management the importance of supporting Firefox will we get: 1. Kaspersky to start participating in the Firefox beta release program so that KIS is compatible when new releases come out. 2. Kaspersky to live up to the marketing promises about the usefulness of its various plug-ins (those who defend Kaspersky by saying the plug-ins are useless are contradicting Kaspersky's official position). 3. Kaspersky to assign the necessary staff to adequately support Firefox in a timely fashion. 4. 30% of web browsing is done on machines running Firefox. For the benefit of Kaspersky's continued growth it should continue to seek excellence in servicing the Windows/Firefox environment. 5. We do not want a one-time fix for this version. We want a continued program that assures timely compatibility between KIS and Firefox. When customers want Kaspersky executive management attention, the appropriate method is to directly open official service "requests" with Kaspersky Labs at https://my.kaspersky.com/en/support/helpdesk Thank you to all who open service requests on this repeated failure.
