  1. I removed an application (Symantec Desktop Encryption) and reinstalled it. After rebooting, I noticed that Kaspersky reported it's components were damaged and suggested a reinstallation. The reinstallation worked fine and I haven't had any problems since but wondered if anyone knew how this could have happened? I'm running Windows 10 with feature update 1809. KIS
  2. Yes, if you tell Kaspersky to scan encrypted connection, it has to proxy them - otherwise it can't scan. Personally, I don't mind Kaspersky scanning encrypted connections since malware has gotten good at using encrypted connections in phoning "home". I suspect that by law, however, they can't proxy some sites such as banking sites - these never seem to be proxied by anyone actually.
  3. It would be nice to know if Kaspersky is just detecting a genuine OS operation consisting of perhaps initializing the webcam but not using it. In privacy, apps don't have access to the webcam but I think the OS is a different story. I get a soft notice at the top of my laptop telling me that Host Process for Windows is using the webcam everytime I restart my computer (it could be I just set Kaspersky to notify without prompting). Since most of the time my laptop has the cover down, I'm not that worried but would like to know why it is happening. I'm running the latest version of Windows 10 fully updated and this started a few months ago with either a Kaspersky update to 2018 or an OS update - both happened around the same time. Host Process for Windows is the signed Microsoft version in system32 so that's not an issue.
  4. What happens if you remove the update by clicking on Update History and then Uninstall Updates? If that works, you have to make sure you keep it from updating again. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3183922/how-to-temporarily-prevent-a-windows-update-from-reinstalling-in-windo
  5. My main computer with KIS 18 just updated automatically so it seems that Microsoft is staggering the pushes. I have an older machine (hardware wise) that still has not updated but I’m sure it will be soon...
  6. I normally would agree if Microsoft was not making a big deal about this saying that we should have the patch and if we don't to contact our AV vendor. What if the Microsoft registry hack isn't working right? Has anyone had a successful install through Windows Update? The only installations I can point to are the manual ones. I would think that Google would be full of people not getting the update if this was a widespread delay not related to the AV vendor.
  7. First of all, this link dated December 29th 2017 is titled "Compatibility of Kaspersky Lab solutions with the Microsoft Security update of January 9, 2018." The original poster and most of us are asking about the security update that was already released January 3rd (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4072699/important-information-regarding-the-windows-security-updates-released) and which Microsoft has stated if it has not yet downloaded, it might be the AV vendor's fault. Second of all, the link does not name KIS and KAV as incompatible. The only products named incompatible are business products: Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Windows, Kaspersky Small Office Security and Kaspersky Anti-Ransomware Tool. As we have pointed out, we all have the registry compatibility key installed so it is puzzling why the January 3rd security patch as documented by Microsoft as already released is not yet being downloaded.
  8. FWIW, I noticed that the manual patch (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4056892/windows-10-update-kb4056892) page dated 1/3 with the Microsoft Catalog link (http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4056892) is actually dated 1/4. Note that the catalog won't display in my IE, but will display and download with Edge (UPDATE: tried it again and it downloaded something call Microsoft Catalog which now displays properly in IE). I'm going to give it a bit more time with the regular Windows Update before manually installing.
  9. >> IE has started crashing again printing from within Safe Money on one machiine with the same thing as before (crash in MSHTML.DLL) Yes, that's the problem: Faulting application name: IEXPLORE.EXE, version: 11.0.15063.608, time stamp: 0x324c3bf4 Faulting module name: MSHTML.dll, version: 11.0.15063.608, time stamp: 0x06bc5160 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x00a9d735 Faulting process id: 0x5590 Faulting application start time: 0x01d339f2bf602962 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSHTML.dll Report Id: af5ceb23-15d5-48fa-b3e5-42294e338276 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:
  10. Perhaps it is fixed for KIS 2018 users but I'm still having the same problem with KIS 2017 (, I cannot print the currently showing webpage to any printer.
  11. Same thing happened here this morning... after 3 unsuccessful retries, I rebooted and all seems well...
  12. Something changed with Safe Money and printing - as of today, when I try to print with Safe Money to a PDF printer, IE crashes. This didn't use to happen. Notified Kaspersky when I turned off Safe Money but don't know if it will do any good.
  13. For whatever it's worth, patch E fixed my slowdown/hang problems with VPN and IE and patch D. Opera never had a problem and continues to work properly. Speed tests measuring throughput are acceptable.
