  1. Hi As of today I have 248 days licence left remaining and am looking into purchasing a new computer which uses windows 8 and internet explorer 10 (I'm currently using vista and IE9). Therefore, what is the current state of play with trying to use kaspersky internet security 2013 with windows 8 and IE10 - i.e. is it fully functional with both w8 and IE10 or just one of them, or do only some bits fully work etc, or is it better to wait for a while? Cheers
  2. Good stuff and personally I always recheck it again once I've opened/saved the object, just for good measure. cheers
  3. In addition to Berny, in 'internet options > advanced' uncheck 'do not save encrypted pages to disc'. Having this box checked checked always stops me from opening or saving e.g. pdf's, in secure sites (i.e. https:), so I always have to uncheck it to open/save them. You state you are using IE6 - don't know if this was a typo but if it is vs6 don't know if the encrypted option even appears but you could look and try. Cheers.
  4. Hi Thanks for your reply. I deleted it, rebooted and checked to find that it no longer appears. The thing is though I am concerned about how it appeared in the first place. It has not been there at all before and I had not set up anything on a network, home or otherwise and don't use anything like a wireless connection, so I don't know how it came to be there. Therefore, I wondered if anyone has any ideas what the local network whatever it is is all about i.e. how do I check where it's come from? Thanks
  5. Hi In all the time I've been using kaspersky internet security, only one local network has ever appeared in firewall settings. However, over the last couple of days, a second one has appeared (circled in the screenshot) and I have no idea why. Does anyone have any idea what's going on here and if I need to, how do I get rid of it? GSI: http://www.getsysteminfo.com/read.php?file...6111a3015T Thanks
  6. 1. In my case, the wireless bit of the router became enabled presumably as a result of the update, therefore, I had to go into the manager and disable it again. However, I did this after changing the router manager password, just to be sure. 2. The wireless bit is the way into the router therefore even if the router is not wireless enabled, presumably your computer is still accessible because the router and your computer are connected through the ethernet cable, so potentially they have direct access to it. Anyhow, this all depends on what caused the wireless connection to become enabled; in my case it was the automatic update but in your case (sorry to be glib) who knows. All you can do is reset the router to the default password and wireless key then immediately change them to your own. Be aware that 'reset' is/can be different from 'restart' (or at least they are on mine - restart just turns the router off then on again, whereas reset reverts the whole router back to factory deafault settings). Whenever I access the router manager I always do it in this order: unplug the phone jack first, then access the router manager and do whatever changes/checks - in your case, revert to default, check that wireless is disabled and input new password and wireless key - then exit the manager, then re-connect the phone jack. If it was me I would also do a system restore, to a point previous to the wireless connection becoming enabled; do all the scans you can access, with e.g. kis and malwarebytes; in windows > network and sharing, set your network to public. That's what i would do.
  7. As well as the above, I use an ethernet cable to connect my PC to the router and have wireless turned off in both the pc and router. the router has a password to control access to the router manager and a wireless key to control access to the wireless bit, which sounds similar to yours. The router receives automatic updates and one day I noticed the wireless light turned on on the router (but not the pc), which I realised was after an update. This is something to be aware of. Once your router became wireless enabled, then presumably somebody nearby could access it because if you had not changed the default router password, this might make the router manager accessible, which then just means somebody can easily change the default wireless key (which they wouldn't know) to one of their own. I would change both the router password and the wireless key. I could be wrong in my opinion but hope it helps
  8. Hi, Re FireWall -> Settings -> Network, the guide says 'make sure that your Network/Network device is in Local Status' but further down suggests all the settings are their personal preference. I would like to know, therefore, which offers the better security: having it set to 'local' or 'public'? If public has the same meaning as in windows vista, 'public' offers the greater protection as public limits the discovery of the computer and devices and restricts use of the network by some programs but I don't know if public has the same meaning in kaspersky internet security 2013. Therefore, what does 'public' and 'local' mean in kaspersky internet security 2013 (as it doesn't seem to say in the help files) and is it better security in public or local? Anyone any ideas please?
  9. Hi sounds a good idea but as I say, the actual url's don't appear anywhere even though the number of malicious URLs appears in the 'reports' window, so I have nothing to submit.
  10. Hi Re number of URLs - oddly enough, no malicious URLs appear in the 'reports' display for any day before thurs 3rd, yet 14 appeared on thurs 3rd, then 14 again on fri 4th, yet not at all today. Re critical events log - Every friday or saturday for years now, I go through all the settings of whichever security program (only using one of them at a time of course to avoid conflicts) I am using (as well as doing other settings and maintainence checks in Windows - various cleanups, degfrag etc) and the log non critical events has always been disabled. Anyway, good to know it's nothing to worry about, thanks.
  11. Hi Thanks for your reply but I checked the setting and it is/was not checked.
  12. Thanks for this. first, I'm glad I'm not alone and second I'll be interested what the moderators think is going on.
  13. Hi Earlier, 'Reports' in 2013 was blank. I used a search engine to look something up (all innocuous stuff) and only accessed sites that showed the green URL advisor sign. However, I then noticed that 'Reports' showed 14 malicious URLs. I couldn't believe it as presumably, sites should have been safe (don't know how many sites I accessed but it didn't even seem to be 14). The thing is though that clicking on the malicious URLs blue link in 'Reports' takes me through to 'detected threats' but the box is completely blank. Therefore, any idea what's going on - how can 14 be detected but nothing show up in detected threats ? Nothing shows up in Web Anti-virus either. Anyone any ideas?
  14. I logged into my kaspersky account but then realised I wasn't sure what to send them. Presumably, sending them the name of the suspected trojan or its path is of little help so I tried to copy the object to then send it to them but couldn't. In both admin and std accounts, I couldn't copy the object or move it etc because each time I tried it was denied saying the file was in use by another program, try again, but I never could. I then went to the objects location in safe mode but to no avail as it wasn't there but of course in admin and std accounts it returned again. so, what details would you like me to send them and do you have any idea how to capture it to send them a copy? As you say, it could just be a false positive but worth letting the lab have a look I guess. Thanks.
  15. Hi this morning on booting up the pc, kaspersky 2013 notified me that a reboot was required to remove the trojan identified in screenshot 1. however, although it is marked as deleted after reboot, clicking on the blue link shows that the object is still in the windows folder, as in screenshot 2. Therefore, does anyone think it has really gone, or should I delete this item myself and would that make any difference anyway? All subsequent scans report nothing detected. Thanks
  16. Aha, thanks for that. That's the box checked bit sorted out then but I just hope it's also now sorted itself out with the bit about having to reinstall the program. Have a good day.
  17. Hi, merry christmas to all. recently, I have had problems with vs 2013 in that some settings change without my input. It may be coincidental but this occurs since vs 'e'. In advanced settings > compatibility, I normally have 'concede operating system resources at computer startup' unchecked but recently it changed from unchecked to checked without me doing it; this is obviously a problem. Yesterday, when starting the pc, 2013 said that some protection components could not be installed and recommended reinstalling the program. I downloaded the removal tool and followed the advice that the tool be run in safe mode. Therefore, I ran the tool in safe mode, rebooted and reinstalled 2013 in normal mode, rebooted, updated, rebooted and ran all the scans, which reported no threats. Today, 'concede operating system resources at computer startup' has again changed from unchecked to checked. Anyone any ideas what's going on please? GSI: http://www.getsysteminfo.com/read.php?file...205b04b5f12a8a2 I had a look at the GSI results and apart from not using anything to do with wireless, the Geardrvs baffles me. I have recently wiped and reinstalled the hard drive and before installng 2013 made attempts to remove the preinstalled norton product (which is part of the OS rescue discs). I ran the norton removal tool and used search everywhere to look for norton and symantec items and removed anything I found, therefore, I have no idea how to remove the Geardrvs that the GSI tool detected as I've tried everything I can - any ideas? PS I ran the norton removal tool in normal mode, so wonder if i should try it in safe mode?
  18. Hi I've got this problem today. Reports shows 3 malicious URL's, as in the screenshot. However, clicking the malicious URL's link shows only 2 listed, as in the screenshot. Therefore, where is the third; why is it not showing? Three were blocked, as shown in 'Web Anti-virus'. Anyone any ideas what's going on and more importantly, is it a problem?
  19. Richbuff, are you nuts! How can warning people that a site might be malicious be nonsense - anti-malware companies (such as Kasperky) make millions out of it; also, I thought this was a forum for people to share things - telling people is helpful and they can choose whether or not to access it.
  20. Hi virustotal reports the link above as a malicious website https://www.virustotal.com/url/a7fbeb6fbd03...sis/1355248178/ so probably best not to click on the link.
  21. Savilion - thanks for that, yours is much lower than mine (approx 14%) although it seems, as Antikythera suggests, this all depends upon the sites visited. I will be interested in other users %'s as a matter of interest for comparison, if people would like to comment. Antikythera - thanks for your reply. I am still amazed that so much data is going out of the PC. This leads to obvious questions such as what is contained within this outgoing data, where is it all going and what's being done with it? These aside, considering data usage allowances for Broadband packages and my 50% value, this suggests that for a 10GB data allowance (combining incoming and outgoing), on average, approx 6.66GB of data will be incoming with 3.33GB outgoing (approx 10GB total). Suddenly, a 10GB allowance doesn't seem so big. To help increase the amount I can have incoming, by decreasing the amount of outgoing (i.e. lower the % such as shown by Savilions %), so I can surf more and stay within my data allowance, can the outgoing amount be reduced somehow through e.g. application control or the firewall? Thanks
