Databases Update Automatic Run Mode Not Working

Recommended Posts

I just installed Kaspersky Free a few days ago. Initially, the databases update runs automatically as is set by default. But, now it doesn't update automatically though in the main screen it says databases required update. Keep waiting for it to update itself but it won't and I have to update manually now. Your help will be much appreciated.

 Welcome. How do you connect to the internet? Is your internet connection ok? Is your internet connection metered? 
Have you waited 15 minutes after system boot up to see if the update will occur? 

Reboot, then check system date/time correct, then Settings > Additional > Network > Proxy server > select Do Not use proxy server. 
 
Are you on battery or main power? Settings > Performance > uncheck Disable scheduled tasks.

Are you in Gaming Profile?   Kaspersky Settings > Performance > uncheck Automatically disable some functionality when in full screen mode. 

Is your Kaspersky license expiring in a few days? 

If your license is a managed subscription, please click  Subscription, located at lower right of the main Kaspersky window, 
then click the "Update subscription status" button. Then start an Update. 

If still no go, attach the Detailed update report.
Enable Log Non Critical Events: Settings > Additional > Reports and quarantine > check Log Non-critical events. Then do an update.
Main  Kaspersky window, lower center, More Tools > right side, click Reports > upper right > Detailed reports, upper left > dropdown > Update,  
select the current entry > right-middle > click Details > Save icon at upper right >
Save, name the file and save it somewhere and attach it to your next post.
If the file is too large to upload, then zip it (right click, send to > compressed zipped folder) and upload the zip. 

Disable Log Non Critical Events when done. 

Please post your GetSystemInfo report link, instructions are located in the third (3rd) Important topic. 

Please see the small print that is located at the bottom of this message.

Thank you richbuff. What you suggested did work well. My Kaspersky Free can update update its databases automatically now.

I have the same problem with KTS 19.0.0.1088(e) on MS Windows x64 8.1 US-EN. I just uploaded my current manual update log per your instructions. Thank you.

If the update report appears to be blank, please post the screenshot of the update report.
