During the application installation you can select the protection mode. Two modes are available:

  • Automatic. If any important events occur, Kaspersky Internet Security will automatically perform the action recommended by Kaspersky Lab specialists. Once a threat is detected, the application will attempt to disinfect the object; if it fails, the application will delete it. Suspicious objects will be skipped without processing. Pop-up messages inform the user about new events.
