Once Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010 is installed there may appear situations when the OS functions unstable. For example, at computer or task start there appear error messages informing about errors in the OS work.

    • high (200) 
    • diagnostic (300) 
    • important (400) 
    • normal (500) 
    • low (600) 

Warning Technical Support expert should advise you which trace level to configure. IF the trace level has not been specified, it is recommended to set the level to Normal (500).
