  1. Figured it out when it happened again--the program that was launching it was previously marked as trusted but somehow that changed. The program has not been modified, there must have been some change to Kaspersky that changed how it was viewed. I marked it as allowed to pass parameters to the browser and I think the flood is quelled.
  2. I mark it as trusted, I give it a network rule that allows it to talk to whoever and yet I can get a hundred questions when it launches. How do I contain the flood?
  3. Edit--I finally found where the whitelisting was buried--no more naggging me every time I compile. It does nothing about the e-mail problem, though. How do I let it send e-mail???
  4. (Probably misfiled but I can't find a section for board-related issues.) May the authors of this be infested with the fleas of a million camels! (A thousand is nowhere near enough) You build a system where color matters--and obviously did not test it on those with less than perfect color vision. It takes several reloads before I get one that I have a hope of figuring out.
  5. I just updated a Pure installation to Total Security--ARGH!!!!! 1) Every time I hit the compile button it's a new executable and it again prompts me for giving it access. I see no way to create a whitelist entry for something that didn't trip a malware detect in the first place. 2) A couple of functions in the program send e-mail. That causes no warning, it's simply being blocked. (A timeout error when it used to work fine.) This is a showstopper bug for me. How do I get around this?
  6. Something on my system has been doing a lot more network traffic than usual and so I launched Process Explorer to keep track of what programs were doing it. Over the last roughly 12 hours I find Kaspersky Pure 2.0 has received 1/3 of a gigabyte and sent 1/4 of a gigabyte--these are the highest values for any program I'm running. What in the world is it doing???
  7. I've seen this before and I never found an answer other than temporarily pausing the protection. However, it only seems to go up to something like a gigabyte of memory use--problematic on an XP box with a bunch of stuff running, irrelevant on a modern high memory machine.
  8. I've got a couple of files around that give AV programs fits. They're legit commercial files but there is some code in them that could be (and has been) used for malicious purposes. Unfortunately, it ends up in backups and the shadow copy files. This means it shows up in new locations and of course gets flagged again. The last three days I've sat down to my computer and found Kaspersky yapping about it yet again. I could set a rule excluding that particular threat systemwide but I don't like doing something like that. Instead, what I would like to do is set a rule saying that any file identical to this one is acceptable.
  9. I just hit a really extreme example of the problem. ~150,000 files totaling about 150gb. I had been doing a delete that went to the recycle bin. I would guess it would have taken a week. I finally killed it and did it without going to the recycle bin--and it was done in minutes.
  10. When you delete a bunch of files Kaspersky goes crazy and sucks up 100% of the CPU power for a while. I believe that that what's going on is that it's scanning all the stuff that just showed up in the recycle bin. Please throttle this back a bit!
  11. I've got a very similar problem although with 2010 rather than 2011. Unfortunately, the instructions on making the network local don't work. I show one public network "Internet" and the only other meaningful one is showing as which is my own machine and is set to local. (There are two others but they are internal stuff for the VmWare instance running on the machine.) I see nothing that addresses (actually a dynamic address but it doesn't move around) which is another box on the network I have no problem connecting to and nothing that applies to, the multifunction printer I can find and print to but I can't talk to.
  12. I decided to run a full system scan, something I have generally avoided due to the amount of data I have. I went to bed last night with things running normally. This morning I find it scanning: C:\System Volume Information\MountPointManagerRemoteDatabase Since I didn't want the disk access running during the day (when are you ever going to come up with a system of a time limitation on the full scan function??? I'm not talking start time, but hour limits on when it runs as it's not going to complete in a single night.) I tried to pause it--the button clicks but nothing happens. I'm guessing that it's scanning all the volumes within drive C that use mount points. This is stupid as it would get to them anyway when it hit the directories they are mounted in. There are also several exclusions based on those paths, I'm expecting a flock of reports when it hits a couple of directories containing pranks. I also expect my machine to be slow for ages as there is 4tb of data on USB2-connected drives in those mount points.
  13. I'm fighting a false positive problem (reported, and I believe I've squawked about it before.) and I can't get it to shut up. The working files are excluded, no problem. The problem is a synchronization routine. The target files are on another machine, mapped as drive Z on the machine running Kaspersky. Sometimes the hit shows up on \\;Z:<big hex number, always the same>\server\<directory> and sometimes on \\<server>\<directory> As I write this I'm looking at two screens: The trusted zone list which excludes the entire target directory structure written both ways (I used the editor from the reports and chopped the file down to the path containing all the troublesome files--no way it's misspelled) with both versions of the path. However I'm also looking at the report screen--from a run after I added the latest version of the exclusions--and it's still showing two hits. (There are 16 troublesome files.) What do I have to do to get it to quit flagging my files?
  14. With the old version, when it balked on a legit file I could simply tell it that it was ok. (Note that I am not objecting to the files being flagged even though it's errant. They have some code that can certainly be used for malicious purposes as well as benign ones.) Now, however, it's so automated that I can't get it to accept the stuff. A manually-created rule didn't work, I can't even find anything in the reports about the rejection to create a rule from it like I used to. While it doesn't really matter if I have the specific files on my laptop or not, the continual errors synchronizing it (from the synchronizer, Kaspersky isn't saying a peep) with the rest of my system are quite annoying.
  15. KIS in both cases. The machine in question didn't have Kaspersky on it at all before this install. I downloaded 2009 and it would not accept the 2007 code. It had no problem with the same code it inherited from V7, though.
