5 Things to do after installing Kaspersky:
1) Disable automatic files deletion:
When Kaspersky detects any virus or any infected fie by default it deleted automatically without asking any permission from user. This could be dangerous if the file is good and uninfected one. This is because some software detects as a virus by antivirus programs which they actually not. So selcect this option to avoid this.
Uncheck the option “Select action automatically” under the general setting tab.
2) Disable Rootkit and Ideal system scan:
To do it, see this post.
3) Scanning removable Drive manually :
When we connect any external flash drive the Kaspersky will start scan automatically irrespective of the device connects again and again. It will be better if it ask you whether scan the drive or not instead automatically.
This can be done by selecting the “ask for option” under Scan setting—General setting.
4) Disable Automatic updates and make it by schedule:
As Kaspersky will take updates hourly so it will be waste of your internet bandwidth. And if internet disconnected it shows error message, so to avoid this all it is better to make update schedule by every 1 month. I mean we will manually update it when we possible. But if we completely turn off the automatic update then it will show error message. Hence here is tweak to avoid that error.
To do it go to update setting and run mode and select updates by schedule –Every month.
5) Copy updates to folder:
This is very important option. Suppose you format your system and reinstall OS then install the Kaspersky antivirus program, so in this case you need to update the program again from beginning. If you have poor internet connecting then it will be very time consuming task as the complete updates are more than 90MB and updating speed is very slow. To avoid this we can save updates and restore it to newly formatted OC
