Applies to Kaspersky PURE R2

In Kaspersky PURE R2 you can select automtic or interactive protection mode:

  • Automatic protection mode. If any important events occur, Kaspersky PURE R2 automatically performs the action recommended by Kaspersky Lab. Once a threat is detected, the application attempts to disinfect the object; if it fails, the application deletes it. Suspicious objects will be skipped without processing. Pop-up messages inform the user about new events.
  • Interactive protection mode. In this mode the application reacts to events in the manner you have specified. Once an event requiring your attention occurs, the application displays notifications which offer you to select an action.

Selecting the Protection mode during the application installation

Two modes are available in the Protection mode windowautomatic and interactive protection modes.

  • I trust Kaspersky PURE and prefer it to make decisions on computer security itself and not to ask me any questions (recommended). In this case you select automatic protection mode. 

  • I prefer making decisions on computer security myself. Kaspersky PURE should ask me every time it is necessary to make a decision. In this case you select interactive protection mode.

After you select the required Protection mode and click the Next button, the installation process will continue.
