Kaspersky stops after updating
Unless I am some sort of kaspersky fanboy I will never be too inclined to the idea of using Kaspersky over Norton.
I do not ever use the computer for gaming purposes. -" Know that you will most likely never even encounter most of these so-called threats..." Well, that's what you think... But if I ever came across an issue where the file was quarantined, norton always provided with a restore option, so I don't see any harm done.
Know that you will most likely never even encounter most of these so-called threats, reality is that a computer can do just fine without any antivirus installed in the system unless you are some sleazy pervert who likes to surf a lot of adult streaming websites or risky websites to download cracks, patches, sql injections for hacking and what not.
All these high percentage malware and virus detection rate is a marketing gimmick to sell the software.
What I like to do is that I add a particular folder like my download folder or the folder where I am using a crack file to the exclusion rule be it any security suite that I use.
Though most of the crack or patch never get false positives by Norton from what I have experienced yet you tell that by never using any of their recent products.
Updates may include patches specifically designed to correct the problem you are having.
I thought it might be conflicting with AVG free, so i removed that and tried to do it again, but it goes no further than %2 Should i just forget about kaspersky and get Norton or one of the free internet security programs? I do need a qood internet security software as I do internet banking all the time and do a lot of downloading too. Norton goes beyond the call of duty and tries to erase any file with a suspicious name. As far as the comment goes that Norton detects suspicious files and erase threats, isn't erasing threats the job of an antivirus?As seen in my illustration below, when KES updates itself from 10.2.2.10535 (mr2) to 10.2.4.674 (mr2), it seems to think it is now autonomous, and does not have to submit to the policy. My question is, how do I make these updated KES versions submit to the policy they were originally under?
