If you have upgraded your operating system to Windows 10 RS4 on a computer with Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 installed, the application will run the adaptation process at first system startup. Protection will be paused: only File Anti-Virus and Self-Defense of files and registry will work, the application interface will be unavailable.

After adapting to the new version of the operating system, the application will restore the protection.

Until you restart the computer, the following protection components will work with limitations:

  • Application interface and startup processes protection within Self-Defense. 
  • System Watcher. 
  • Detection and disinfection of malicious software in system memory. 
  • Protection against file-encrypting malware and screen lockers.

  • Application Control is limited in applying customer settings for some applications, categorizing new Windows style applications, and Edge web browser protection. 
  • Trusted Applications mode is limited in connection with Windows Program Data Updater service. 
  • Protection against Time-of-Check Time-of-Use (TOCTOU) attacks.
