Kaspersky Total Security 2016 updates databases and scans system memory, startup objects, and system volume of the hard disk are performed automatically when the computer is idle (when it is locked by the user or when a screen saver is active for five minutes).

When the computer is resumed to the active state, the Idle Scan task stops automatically. The application remembers the stage when the scan task was stopped and resumes the scan process from that stage next time (updates download will start over again).
