I have Kaspersky installed and running smoothly but how come i'm getting a notification from windows that my Kaspersky is off eventhough its not? Can someone help me? I tried rebooting my pc and still get the notification.

This is a common problem and it is a Windows problem and it is usually (but not always when working right) a false alarm.

You can try a few things to eliminate this annoyance.

1. There is a fix on this forum which I'll try to find and add later

2. You can ignore it and Windows Security Center (WSC) will probably eventually recognize the program

3. There is a free utility, CCleaner, which cleans out the files that could correct this. Just google "CCleaner".

4. You can disable Security Center in "Services" (probably not the best choice).

5. The fix mentioned in "1"


"If kaspersky K is red and opening kaspersky the window is green and saying you are protected, that's a windows security center error and your PC is safe and protected.


Then you may try to do this to get rid of that popup

Do this:


1. Temporarily disable the WMI service (Windows management instrumentation) in: Start >Run > type: services.msc and in there find/stop WMI


2. Next delete the C:\windows\system32\wbem\repository folder, wait for it to recreate (can take a bit of time)


3. Restart the WMI service & restart the computer


Otherwise you can simply disable windows security center messages since they are wrong"
