When accessing a network resource for the first time, the PC will request a DNS server name. This name is then placed into a special storage (cache) on the PC and will be used when you access the same resource in the future. This option accelerates the work of local network or Internet, but lowers your PC security level. That is why you have an option to Disable DNS Cache during Kaspersky Anti-Virus installation.

If you want to disable DNS cache but have not done so during installation of the Kaspersky Anti-Virus, you can enable the function Disable DNS Cache by means of the Windows OS:


  • Click Start, then Run

  • Type in the command SERVICES.MSC and press Enter

  • Find the service DNS Client in the list of services

  • Double left-click it with your mouse to open the DNS Client Properties

  • Select Disabled in the Startup Type field


  • Click Start to run the DNS Client service immediately or click OK and reboot your PC.

    InformationIf you want to enable DNS cache, select Automatic instead of Disable in the DNS Client service startup type field.
