German Kaspersky Support says to me today (24.03.06) "die Versionen 5.0.522 und 5.0.527 wurden wieder zurückgezogen." which means that i should not install 522 or 527.

Weil es inkompatibilität zwischen 5.0.527 und Adminkit 5.1149 möglich ist...

Wenn Critical Fix 6 (5.0.1150) fertig wird (voraus. Montag-Dienstag), sollte die Version 5.0.527 wieder freigegeben werden (wenn es keinen neuen ernsthaften Fehler auftaucht).

I have just installed and it looks great.


However, the little KAV icon in IE - the icon for klif.sys - is not showing up, and I have enabled real-time scripts monitoring, so now I am not sure it's working.


Is there a sample site where I can check if the script monitor is working? I remember in 4.5 there was a local HTML page with some VB code where you could test if the script monitoring was working.
