Is virus protection really disabled when the license expires in Kaspersky?
I heard somewhere only the extra "gadgets" safe money, popup blocker, etc are disabled, so if you stick a virus-infected pendrive (for example) Kaspersky will still alert you even if the license expired.
So the core function of auto-protect the computer is still working. Is that true?
Viruses are semi-rare these days. You're actually more likely to get spyware or adware on your system. I run Malwarebyte's Anti pretty frequently, and it's the only thing I've ever found anything with over the last couple of years.
Just uninstall Kaspersky and get Microsoft Security Essentials. Problem solved.
There is no problem at all. Where did you read someone has a problem?
I'm just looking for a simple answer for a simple technical question so I came here to ask but my topic is flooded with totally irrelevant replies already.
I don't want to switch security, I don't need recommendations for anything, I just need a Kaspersky IS user who can CONFIRM or REFUTE that the program is still monitoring the machine even if the licese expired and "protection is disabled" (grey K icon)
