Kaspersky blocking Steam and MS Store Apps


Recommended Posts

Whenever Kaspersky is running, I cannot access MS Store Apps (xbox game pass, telegram, canva etc.) and Steam Downloads. 

MS Store comes up with a code: 0x80131500 saying I cannot connect.

The moment I disable protection on Kaspersky, EVERYTHING starts functioning usually as it was a few weeks ago.

Can someone help me with a permanent solution to this where I can enjoy protection as well as the other software on my PC without hindrance please?

Thanks!

Hello @Jojo Mojo

Welcome!

  1. Which Windows OS version & build?
  2. Have all Windows updates & patches been applied successfully? 
  3. Has the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter been run? 
  4. Which KIS version & patch(x), x=letter, is installed, on the Windows taskbar, or hidden icons, rightclick the Kaspersky icon, select About
  5. In the KIS Reports, are there any errors/events that match up with the dates & times that '0x80131500/cannot connect' happens? 
  6. Has an uninstall of KIS, saving License information *only*  & a clean install been done? 

Please let us know?

Thank you?

Have all Windows updates & patches been applied successfully?

What is KIS Reports? How do I access this?

Has an uninstall of KIS, saving License information *only*  & a clean install been done?

Hello @Jojo Mojo

You're most welcome!

Thank you for posting back. 

  1. You've determined the issue is KIS, explain why it's unnecessary to uninstall/clean install KIS? 
  2. In the last image you posted above, with the grey KIS icon & red arrows, what are you trying to tell us
  3. KIS Reports: open KIS, select More Tools, select Reports, review the available Reports - any relevant information, SAVE the report - top right hand corner - upload the saved file to any cloud service of your choice & post the share link? 

Thank you?

Are you suggesting I uninstall KIS and install it again? To me it appears like a restriction on firewall or application. I didn't think installing / uninstalling would be necessary. Please clarify.

In the last image you posted above, with the grey KIS icon & red arrows, what are you trying to tell us

That MS Store works fine with KIS protection disabled.

KIS Reports: open KIS, select More Tools, select Reports, review the available Reports - any relevant information, SAVE the report - top right hand corner - upload the saved file to any cloud service of your choice & post the share link?

Attached the file here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TaRQMm1P0Y8Pu3aYDiMVIlBVGr_wv3an/view?usp=sharing

It appears from the file that KIS is adding applications to trusted / restricted groups. But I am not sure if that alone is the problem here, though it seems like it.

Can you guide me on what to do next?

Ok, Uninstall KIS, *saving your activation code only*  & a clean install KISSeems to work for the time being. Everything is working as it should. I'll test it out for 7 days. If you don't hear back from me again, then everything is still working fantastically ?

Thanks again  Flood?+?

Once again the EXACT SAME problem has come around. This time Kaspersky was blocking Xbox Games and blocked my Flight Simulator from updating and even starting up. This went on for many days until once again I remembered this solution offered on this forum and tried disabling protection.

Everything started working normally.

I need a permanent solution to this. Please can someone help instead of reinstalling it everytime the software goes crazy?

I am very frustrated with this and I am regretting buying a 3 PC license of Kaspersky just last month.

Hello @Jojo Mojo,

  4. Go to folder C:\ProgramData\Kaspersky Lab\AVP21.3\Report\ and delete the contents = all files and folders.
  5. Start Kaspersky app.
  6. Enable Self-Defense.
  7. Shutdown the computer, using Shutdown, not Restart, power on, login.
  8. Re-check the issue?

?IF that does not work, you must log a case with Kaspersky supporton the support page select either Chat or Email, then select Application malfunction, Other template; please include any screen images of the error, the KIS Report & a detailed history; Support may request logs, traces & other data, they will guide you.

Thank you Flood?+?.

This did not work. ? To be honest, right at the beginning of this thread, I had opened a support ticket where the representative didn't even read my problem properly and that is what made me write on the forums. ?

I truly appreciate your help with is much more than the support ticket. ?

Truly sad that your given solution didn't work. Let me see how the support people respond to this.

Hello @Jojo Mojo

You're most welcome!

Thank you for posting back & the information!

That's unfortunate the solution did not work. 

When Xbox, Flight sim etc are being blocked - is KIS sending any actual alerts to the screen or is it still the original errors you reported at the beginning of the topic "cannot access MS Store Apps (xbox game pass, telegram, canva etc.) and Steam Downloads. MS Store comes up with a code: 0x80131500 saying I cannot connect" - with KIS then assigning the app to Low Restricted, Trust group cannot be defined

We reached out to Microsoft technical support, they've shared this advice, please do the following:

  1. Create a System restore point
  2. In Windows Search, type Internet Options
  3. Open Internet Options app
  4. Select the Advanced tab
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the list to: Use SSL 3.0
  6. Uncheck SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0 & TLS 1.1
  7. Check TLS 1.2 & TLS 1.3
  8. Select Apply 
  9. Select OK  -> see image
    Spoiler

    image.thumb.png.d5dac7db47601012fd1400198a141f91.png

  10. Shutdown the computer, using Shutdown, not Restart, power on by pressing the power button, login, recheck the issue? 
  • Please share the outcome with the Community, when it's available? 
  • Additionally, when you speak with the Kaspersky Team, ask them why KIS is assessing known MS store apps with Low Restricted/Trust group cannot be defined - they may tell you to change to Trusted, which will certainly fix the issue, but the fix may not be permanent?

Thank you?

Most definitely, I will get back. I have asked the Kaspersky crew to look into this thread. I am a little scared trying to try out MS technical support (blame it on years of their incompetency in reading / understanding problems and giving canned responses), but maybe I will give it a shot.

Also the theory / question about "why KIS is assessing known MS store apps with Low Restricted/Trust group cannot be defined - they may tell you to change to Trusted, ", seems to be something I want to try out, because I don't use MS store apps much.

Get back soon.

Steam Games are not launching also because of the same issue. INC000014659183 has been opened 7 days ago. Nobody has responded yet. Please advise.

Hello @Jojo Mojo

Thank you for the update, so sorry for the delay?!

7 days & nothing, that's very unusual?

  1. So, after receiving the automated email, with INC000014659183 reference number, no Kaspersky human has been in touch, is that correct? 
  2. Please send them an email, ask for an update? 
  3. Also, even tho you don't wish to implement the MS solution, can you please check & see which TLS is actually set please? 

Please post back?

Thank you?
