When you upgrade Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 to Windows 10 on the computer with Kaspersky Total Security installed or install Kaspersky Total Security on Windows 10, at first startup Kaspersky Total Security will run the adaptation process (in the meantime, protection will be paused).

Please note: to ensure compatibility of Kaspersky Lab products with Windows 10, install the operating system with the Zero Day Patch

After the process has been completed, protection will resume, however, the Webcam Access component will be permanently unavailable.

The following components will operate with limitations:

  • Self-Defense.
  • System Watcher (limitations in detecting some objects).
  • System memory scan.
  • Protection against screen lockers.
  • Protection against cryptoviruses.
  • Safe Money (limitations in clipboard protection, protection against screenshots, and protection from several types of attacks in Safe Browser) (Windows 10x64).
  • Application Control (limitations in Edge web browser protection; limitations in categorizing Metro applications; limitations in applying customer settings toward certain applications).
