Antivirus Update: Kaspersky Antivirus


Someone said Kaspersky Antivirus is very good, so I installed it. Now I find the default settings do not meet my needs, and I don't know how to configure it, so can you tell me how to configure Kaspersky Antivirus?


  1. Launch the main window of Kaspersky, select the Settings option.

    configure Kaspersky Antivirus

  2. Click Protection, here you can set Enable or Disable protection, and set Password protection.

    Configure Kaspersky Antivirus
  3. In File Anti-Virus, you can select Security level and Action. The default level is appropriate for most users.

  4. You can set more detail by click Settings. In General Tab you can set File types and Protection scope.

    General Tab

  5. In Performance Tab, select the Scan mode as you needed. In Additional Tab, select as you needed, I think Smart mode is the best.

    Set Protection

  6. The setting of Web Anti-Virus and Proactive Defense are the same as File Anti-Virus.

  7. Click Scan My Computer, set Scan removable drives as you needed. In Scan tasks quick run you can create shortcut for scan virus.

    Scan My Computer

  8. Next we configure Full Scan. The setting of Quick Scan, Objects Scan and Vulnerability Scan is the same as File Anti-Virus.
    Select Scan all archives and Scan all installation packages will spend more time, so you can deselect them.

  9. In Additional Tab, you can choose Scan methods and Scan technologies.

  10. In Run mode Tab, you can set a schedule for scan.

  11. The default setting is OK about My Update Center option.

  12. In Options, Enable Self-Defense, it's very useful.

  13. In Threats and exclusions, I think the default setting is OK in Threats option.

  14. In Trusted applications, you can add Trusted applications to the list.

  15. In Network, someone may use these functions. You can Monitor all network prots, enable Encrypted connections scan and set Proxy server.

    Set Network

  16. Next click Notifications, if you do not need notice, disable them.


  17. Click Reports and Storages, here you can set the log files, I think it's wasteful to use 1024MB to store log files, 10MB is enough.

  18. Next click Feedback, if you don't agree to participate in Kaspersky Security Network, deselect it.

    Set Feedback

  19. In Appearance, you can set Icon and Skins.

  20. I think the Gaming profile is a useful function, you must do not want to be disturbed when you are immersing in the games.
