The Trusted Applications mode in Kaspersky Total Security 2018 prevents untrusted programs from launching.  Kaspersky Total Security 2018 declares a program untrusted if Kaspersky Security Network has no information about it, or if it was downloaded from an untrusted website. Only known and trusted applications are allowed to run.

Before you enable the Trusted Applications mode, make sure Application Control, File Anti-Virus, and System Watcher are also enabled .

To enable the Trusted Applications mode:

  1. In the main window of Kaspersky Total Security 2018, click More tools.
