  1. I've just purchased a renewal, 10 licenses for 1 year at a cost £24 then simply added the key to mykaspersky account and is now showing the 10 new licenses are available when my existing subscriptions end. Then unless changing version its a simple process to add the new key to each computer. If changing versions its always best to completely uninstall the current version then do a clean install of the new version, eg moving from KIS 2017 to KIS 2018
  2. I don't know about KAV but I'm seeing KIS at £12.99 for 1 device/1 year. £18.99 for 3 devices and £23.99 for 10 devices on Amazon, code by email and sold by Amazon so no worries about fraudulent codes as can easily get a refund if a problem.
  3. What OS are you running? I'm very happy with 2017 since patch C on W10 x64 If you are running W10 then I believe there are some weaknesses in protection with 2016 version, if not then you are OK Regards, Andy
  4. Also, Sorry but I don't understand what the problem is here, why wouldn't you want the most recent version with the highest level of protection installed? Your license is valid for both the 2016 and 2017 version and will expire on June 9th 2017 regardless of the installed version, licenses are not perpetual! At that time simply renew the license and carry on as before.
  5. I have submitted full dump and GSI to support for analysis and I am awaiting their conclusions
  6. Having recently purchased a new laptop I installed the latest version of KIS which then updated itself to 611b. Now I find I regularly have BSOD's with the error Kernel Security Check Failure when resuming from sleep and/or hibernation. After investigation of the minidumps it seems to be related to KIS and doesn't occur if I remove KIS FAILURE_ID_HASH_STRING: km:memory_corruption_large Related to : klim6.sys and kneps.sys I have run the getsysteminfo utility, here is the link: GetSystemInfo Link I run KIS on all my PC's and laptops and have for many years. I havn't had any issues until this new laptop and I would appreciate feedback on how I can solve this issue. Many thanks
  7. What is the current version, the sticky suggests Latest version is 2016 ( but when I click through to download then Version 2016 ( is offered. Is there a fault with the download link or incorrect information in the sticky? Which version should I be using? Thanks
  8. Agree this is a real problem, I'v been using 556 on a couple of PC's and the only safe way to operate is: 1. Ensure 'Select Action Automatically' is unchecked 2. In application control, uncheck all 'Load rule for apps from KSN 'Update rules for previously unknown apps from KSN 'Trust apps with digital sig' 3. For unknown app - check 'Move to the following group automatically' and set to something other than trusted This is true on both my win7 Ult x64 and Vista Ult x86 boxes. running 556 b on both. They were 556 a,b but that change to b only after a recent update Andy
  9. No, this behaviour is seen with many apps, eg, Logitech, iTunes, Google, to name a few
  10. I know this is a known problem which was fixed by patch a. I just completed a reinstall on a Vista Ulimate x86 PC and the problem with firewall rules reappeared. This was a completely clean install, KAVremoved old version etc. On further investigation it seems that the rules reset only if *Update rules for previously unknown applications from KSN* is checked. I can perhaps understand the rules being updated once for new new or unknown apps but should this really happen when a rule has been explicity created for an app and after every reboot? Seems to me this is potentially dangerous - explicitly created rules should not be changed without approoval. Work around of course is to turn this function off and loose this, sometimes, useful functionality. Questions here is am I missing something or is this a real problem?
  11. Hi all, hope someone can explain where I am going wrong or is something wrong with the newest version. Running 2010v736 on Win7 x64. I created firwall rules for an application (firefox in this case as a test) to block local and public networks. With Interactive Protection unchecked when Firefox is launched I get the popup prompt asking to either allow or block the connection With Interactive Protection checked when Firefox is launched full access to internet is alowed So the explicit rules to block public network access are being ignored and the request is being treated as prompt for action which when interactive protection is enabled allows internet access automatically. This seems very dangerous and this is not the way 2009 behaves, just compared on another PC not yet upgraded. As a tempory solutiuon Interactive is turned off but this then generates unwanted prompts, my view is if I explicity block a program then it should be blocked. Am I missing something here or is this a fault with KIS2010? Thanks, Andy
  12. Totally agree with everything you say, not allowing grouping is a major flaw in 2010
