  1. Hello, Was getting some annoying pop-up ads on my pc and found that ending the SPEPOPUD.EXE process killed them. Then found out that it was an Iobit (uninstaller program) file. Is this something Kaspersky Security Cloud should / could have caught or not? I'm thinking it slipped by due to the fact that I've had that program on my computer for a while but it's still concerning. Uninstalling the program seems to have alleviated the issue but is it possible the system is still infected? Any help appreciated!
  2. Does safe messaging also protect against malware deployed without ever opening the text or does it scan the links only? I’ve read that some texts can be malicious through the multimedia messaging service without clicking on a link but just by opening it...and that it might even be possible to get infected without even opening the text (just by receiving it in the first place). Any insight appreciated!
  3. Thanks for the exceptional information, Thoughts! I do agree that KSC is extremely impressive and, IMO, the best AV software out there. On that note, I’m strongly considering upgrading to Personal but am unsure if I need the additional tools and don’t need a password manager or cleaning abilities (and don’t have a family). Frankly, I’m thinking of upgrading because it’s the right thing to do and I value their work and efforts. I’m really glad you mentioned the importance of KSN and suggested the uBlock Origin settings...and agree with the importance of regular and secure backups.
  4. Thanks for your input. Due to the fact that MWB has caught so many things with real-time protection turned on, I’m really struggling with turning it off (ransomware is off at this point). I do believe and have trust in Kaspersky (I know how highly rated they are in terms of detection) but it’s hard to know. You make a very valid point in regards to potential conflicts and I find myself wondering how often this actually happens “in the wild”. This seems to be one of the topics that it’s difficult to find consensus for. I have heard of that extension. Can I ask if you use it and are satisfied with it? I do use the Kaspersky Protection extension at this time as well as uBlock Origin. Really appreciate your insight as I want to stay as safe as possible!
  5. I know this topic has been brought up before (and I’ve read those threads), but what’s the worst case scenario if MWB Premium has all real-time protection on while running KSC? Will they conflict at times and simply “fight over” certain types of protection, or is it possible that this combination will actually cause security vulnerabilities? I work online and MWB Premium has stopped me from visiting several websites (that I thought were secure), detected a few trojans, found some Adware and PUPs, etc. My concern is that if I turn off real-time protection, I might not be as safe since I’ve seen it stop so much. Is the answer just to keep the faith and turn off real-time protection?
  6. Thanks for the reply! When you say “browser extension”, are you referring to the on-screen keyboard? I trust Kaspersky to detect keyloggers so I think anyone using it should be good.
  7. Welcome. Also, Kaspersky is detecting and destroying Keyloggers as well as Remote-Access-Trojans. Thank you! Does Kaspersky Security Cloud still destroy and detect keyloggers if the on-screen keyboard and secure keyboard input aren’t used? Can you kindly reply to my questions above about cookies as well? I sincerely appreciate your time and knowledge!
  8. Hello @always_working, Welcome! Personally, we do not rely exclusively on any software; best practice is to employ as many tools as possible to stay safe on the internet. Even Kaspersky recommends a multiple pronged approach, read the following Kaspersky articles: Thank you for the warm welcome and highly informative response! I read all the articles but am hoping you might enlighten me further. What I really want to know is, assuming I delete all cookies and clear the cache weekly, is there a way via a browser extension, browser settings, or software to help ensure that scammers can’t glean my passwords via cookies or otherwise steal them? Does Kaspersky protect against this? Or is this only / most ironclad way to delete them every after browser session? Trying to strike the right balance here and stay protected without having to delete cookies after every session (if possible). Thanks again for any insight!
  9. Have read the suggestions online to delete cookies / cache once every two weeks. However, if cookies can be stolen and used to identify password, how would that be effective enough assuming attacks are in real-time? Will Security Cloud stop such theft or is the best practice to delete cookies / cache after each browser session? Trying to strike the right balance here so any insight would be helpful!
  10. Running Security Cloud on Windows 10 and wondering if it will identify / stop keyloggers *if* Secure Keyboard Input is disabled and the On-Screen Keyboard isn’t used? Have noticed a conflict with Bitwarden whereas the keyboard intermittently stops working...but don’t want to disable Secure Keyboard Input if that means my pc will be susceptible to keyloggers. Any thoughts appreciated!
