If you have upgraded your PC to Windows 10 RS4, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2018 will run the adaptation process upon initial system startup. Protection will be stopped for a while: only File anti-virus and the self-defense of files and registry keys will work, the user interface will be unavailable.

After the adaptation to Windows 10, protection will be restored. A notification will also appear stating that you must restart your computer in order for all the components of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2018 to work correctly. 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. 
  • Protection against Time-of-Check Time-of-Use (TOCTOU) attacks.
