You can enable automatic quick scan and update of Kaspersky Small Office Security 5 databases. These tasks are performed while you are away and your computer is on. This will help you avoid extra load on your system when you use the computer.

When you return, scan and update tasks will be automatically paused. At the next idle period, the scan task will be resumed from the moment it was paused. Download of application databases will start over.

If the computer is battery-powered, Idle Scan will not be performed even if the computer is idle. The Idle Scan mode is enabled by default.
To enable or disable idle scan and update:
  1. Open Settings in Kaspersky Small Office Security 5, by clicking the gear icon in the lower-left corner of the main window.
