  1. In Kaspersky 2019 at least, there is this limitation listed. Quote---------- Limitations of the Kaspersky Protection extension in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox The Kaspersky Protection extension does not operate in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox if there is Malwarebytes for Windows installed on your computer. It doesn't specify whether that's an issue if real time protection is disabled in MalwareBytes, but just for info.
  2. mikethebike, I downloaded the TDSSKiller from the KLAB site, and I think it was a portable app. IOW, you don't install it. Just right click on the exe file, say if you downloaded it onto your desktop, and Run as Administrator. It then shows you the EULA which you need to agree to, and then you will be shown the UI which has various scan options. As to how efficient it is in scanning as opposed to the slow inbuilt option, that's a question for Tech Support !
  3. Hi, guys. I have TDSSKiller version, and on my desktop as a shortcut. I right click to run as Administrator, and it updates and then opens a UI with options. You then have to accept the EULA and when done and I ran it, it took 20 seconds. I downloaded it a while ago from KLAB's own site.
  4. Download the free Kaspersky TDSSKiller. It scans for rootkits, and takes a fraction of the time.
  5. @Viney In the Performance setting, I have everything disabled except Prevent infection during operating system restart. All AVs will use system resources, as they are scanning pretty much all the time. During a system scan such as the Full Scan, it will use pretty much 100% of the CPU. That's not an unusual situation. However, I can still browse as normal, so I wouldn't be too concerned.
  6. Your 2016 version is way out of date. As wgcuser says, if you have a current subscription, you are entitled to download the latest version. You can download from this link, https://support.kaspersky.com/kav19 or from your My Kaspersky account, if you have one.
  7. Couldn't agree more. I've gone back to the 2018 version and thanks for the link to the full installer !
  8. Hi, Diverse. You should uninstall Norton, using their uninstall tool. Reboot afterwards. As alex says, you should never have two real time AVs as if malware is detected, then they will cause conflict when both programs detect and try to remove the malware. One real time AV, and use the free versions of programs such as Malwarebytes and Zemana as your on demand back up scanners. Also programs such as Norton and KIS will disable Defender on installation.
  9. Hi, Vicki. See my post re the same issue. Seemingly the problem lies with Kaspersky so a fix may be upcoming. Norton had a similar issue a while back.
  10. Hi, all. Since installing Win 10 version 1809 aka RS5 on my 64 bit systems, my safe search icons have disappeared in ALL browsers. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix ? I tried reinstalling browsers and KIS, to no avail. Suggestions welcome !
  11. Some sites are saying not until October 10 to tie in with usual Patch Tuesday dates, so I wouldn't be too concerned.
  12. Just re-enable it. It won't affect performance, and then hopefully Kaspersky won't notify you again. Also in Settings > Additional > Notifications, I have everything unchecked except the first option.
  13. In addition to Berny's advice, I have been told by Support that you can upgrade to 2019 simply by downloading the 2019 version and over installing 2018 as they said that it uninstalls 2018 anyway, and overwrites it with 2019. I tried this approach, and KIS 2019 is working fine on both my systems. Just for info, but Berny's suggestion is the one most recommended.
