  1. Not wishing to hijack the OP's question, but I was wondering how to correctly transfer a licence from one PC to another, in the situation where I buy a new PC, uninstall KIS from the old one and install the same licence on the new machine. Is it all done on a basis of trust between KL and the user, or is there some hardware detection going on?
  2. While I understand that support for the actual application (KIS/KAV 7) will be discontinued in January, do we know for how long virus definition updates will continue to be made available?
  3. Well, I can now confirm Howard's findings - 'new and changed files' scan is definitely broken in KIS 7, at least for the My Computer preset scan. It took just as long to do one last night as for a full scan with default settings. As KIS 7 is still supported for a few months yet, I would like to think this might be fixed by KL - as the problem has only appeared in the last few weeks, it can't be too major. Disappointed that KL and the Forum gurus have been silent on this issue as yet.
  4. There have been a couple of component updates to KIS 7 recently which required a re-boot. This made me wonder whether KIS 7 is now storing its iSwift data in the same way as KIS 8/9 (rather than using object ID's); and hence any files scanned before the updates would not be recognised as having been previously scanned. Just a thought! EDIT: the scan giving me trouble is the pre-defined 'My Computer' option.
  5. Yes, I seem to have been experiencing this problem for a few weeks now (using KIS c/d/e on XP SP3) - a 'new and changed files' scan takes over four hours, even when done just a few days after the previous scan! Like Howard, I get the impression that the program has 'forgotten' the iSwift data from the last full scan. Going to try a full scan later this week, and then see what happens on the next 'new and changed files' scan. Update has ALWAYS been manual, so no change there.
  6. I updated my KIS (c,d,e) virus databases yesterday (25 January), as I normally do first thing every day, so I can assume it was fully up to date. Today I was surprised to find the daily update comprised 9.6MB of files, many of which were sequentially numbered in the format basennnc.avc. It's almost as though I was updating a new installation of KIS for the first time. Any idea what's happening here? I'm running Windows XP Home SP3 if it's relevant.
  7. Not here, I'm afraid (with KIS XP SP3) - the Windows firewall stays disabled when KIS is disabled.
  8. ..... but presumably you disconnect from the internet first, as disabling KIS will also turn off the firewall, I think?
  9. I did a full scan of my PC with KIS last Saturday; and a file identified as C:\Windows\4E44D63B14AB37C5 was reported to be suspect, which KIS wanted to quarantine. I let it do so; but on re-starting this morning, after updating the virus definitions, KIS reported the quarantined file to be a false positive and recommended that I restore it. I did so (incidentally, why doesn't KIS remember the original location of a quarantined file, rather than asking for it?); but I am puzzled as to what the file actually is. I did have a couple of crashes of my browser (Maxthon 2) prior to doing so, which I suspect may be connected with the quarantined file; Maxthon reported problems with kernel32.dll.
  10. Thanks Lucian - I'm using a TP-Link TDW9810-G (with which I'm pretty pleased BTW). As it all seems to work fine, I'm not too worried about the strange message in the Firewall zones - I was just curious as to what it meant!
  11. ...... and so it did! One thing I found rather curious; in Firewall | Settings, one Zone is shown 'greyed out', with the message "status is defined by another Zone with larger range of addresses". Above it is shown another zone which appears to have exactly the same IP Address and Subnet Mask values. If I delete the greyed-out zone, it promptly reappears, so it's obviously needed! Just wondered what this all signifies?
  12. As the title suggests, I will shortly be upgrading from an ADSL internal modem to a wireless modem/router. Will KIS automatically detect that the method of internet access has been changed and re-configure itself accordingly, or is there anything that I will need to do by way of changing settings manually? I have done a Forum search, and note (from a post by Lucian Bara) that I may need to add the router's IP address to the Trusted Zone in order to access its internal setup menus.
