Kaspersky url advisor grey Ks question

23 posts in this topic

Hi !

I have just a simple question : is the kaspersky url advisor (mozilla firefox add-on) working properly ?

I don't ussualy use it very much, but today i noticed that many websites have a grey "K" icon instead of the green one.

This happened to quite a few websites, that normally are with green "K" icon.

Yesterday, most of which i searched were green, but today, almost neither of them (most of them are grey, with a few exceptions).

Is there something wrong with the kaspersky url advisor ?

I just noticed this today too. The same thing is happening on Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.

 

Sites like wikipedia, tvtropes, and even facebook have a grey icon, when they were all green before. Glad it's not just me.

Yeah i guess it is kind of weird, but do you think we should have anything to worry about ?

I'd hope not. We should probably wait for a mod or admin to give us more info before we decide to start panicking.

Maybe it's just a bug or something and it will get fixed in the next url advisor version.

Anyway, i doubt it could be something very serious or awful.

They're probably busy checking into it (as well as other users' problems) right now. We should just hang tight until they come around to answering our questions.

I agree with you, Bloodedge. :)

Besides, it's probably nothing very serious, we just have to wait a little while. :)

@gmcpmc, well, i just keep careful on what websites i use. :)

I don't search pornography or stuff like that and if i need anything (besides porn) i just seach on websites that i know are all good. :)

To be honest, there aren't quite that many dangerouse websites. Well, not unless you specifically search for something like porn etc.

I didn't say i don't use it at all, i use it, but just not so often. :)

Just a quick update : it appears kaspersky url advisor is working ok again.

Websites like wikipedia, facebook etc., have green "K" icon just like before. :)

I don't know what was the problem, but i'm glad it's been fixed. :)

@Bloodedge and @gmcpmc, if you can, tell me how is it working now for you guys. :)

Something is wrong. The grey "K" icon is starting to appear again, on websites like wikipedia, facebook etc.

Can't anybody please help us with this issue ?

Or at least tell us if it's a bug or not ?

I uninstalled Ask toolbar, however, it came up with a message saying that "C:/Program Files\Ask.com\GenericAskToolbar.dll failed to unregister". I checked my program files after rebooting, and said file wasn't there.

 

Also, the issue the OP described has resolved itself for me and at least two other people.

1. Windows XP Professional SP3 - 32 bit version.

2. Kaspersky Anti-virus 2012 - version 12.0.0.374 (h).

I did not put a GSI log, because, if you recall richbuff, i did one about 1 month ago or less then 1 month, and the only thing you found wrong was just SP3 missing.

Since then, i did not install any major programs or anything and i don't have any toolbars installed on my browser. I really didn't think a GSI log was necessary (just for me), in this case.

Also, the grey "K" issue has been resolved for me too, but thanks anyway for your help. :)
