  1. 2016 gives me a message that my home router is not secure. Sorry, I can't be more specific at the moment. The message pops up and goes away before I can make note of it or click on any links that it might have. How do I find out what Kaspersky is warning about? FYI - I have WPA-PSK security with a long and complicated key. I also have a MAC address filter. Would either of these be bothering 2016?

  3. Do you think it's because my SSID is broadcast? I'm stuck with broadcasting it - my smart phone won't connect to it if it's hidden. Meanwhile, I've got a nearly-impossible-to-guess key, and I've got MAC address filtering. The Kaspersky article is OK, but I've pretty much got all the recommended stuff in place already. Meanwhile, why does the message refer to my network as "public", when it's listed in Kaspersky as "local". Do I need to switch it to "trusted"?
  4. I have two Win 7 computers running Kaspersky Internet Security 2013. I just bought a new Win 8.1 computer and the Kaspersky installation process put the 2015 version on it. All three are networked with my WiFi router which has WPA-Personal security, TKIP encryption, a long and complicated key, and MAC address filtering. It is listed as a "local network" on all three computers. The new computer keeps giving me the following message (notice that I have inserted "network name" where Kaspersky displays the correct name) "Public wireless Wi-Fi network "Network Name" is insecure." "Transmitted data may be intercepted on a public Wi-Fi network despite encryption" Questions: 1-Why does Kaspersky 2015 call my network "public" even though it is listed in Kaspersky as "local"? 2-Why is it displaying the message? 3-Should I make my network "trusted" instead of "local"? There is a link to click that says "Do not show for this WiFi network". I'm hesitant to click this, if there really is an actual network security problem that 2015 found that went undetected in 2013. Note that there aren't any messages about the network from either of the two Win 7 computers running 2013. Ideas, anyone?
  5. Hi All, I have a new PC running Win7 64 bit SP1. I loaded iTunes 10 shortly after getting it. At that time, it was successfully commumicating with my Apple TV. A few days later, I loaded Kaspersky Internet Security. Today, iTunes can't find the Apple TV. Is it possible that the firewall is blocking communication? I checked under the Apple tab on the firewall and found that Bonjour Services is indeed allowed to communicate, but perhaps there is some other setting that I need to check.
