Last update rollback

After the databases and application modules are updated for the first time, the function of rolling back the databases and application modules to their previous versions becomes available.

Each time that a user starts the update process, Kaspersky Endpoint Security creates a backup copy of the current databases and application modules. This lets you roll back the databases and application modules to their previous versions when necessary. Rolling back the last update is useful, for example, when the new database version contains an invalid signature that causes Kaspersky Endpoint Security to block a safe application.

To roll back the last update:

  1. Click the Tasks button located in the lower part of the main application window.

    The Tasks window opens.

  2. Click the section with the name of the update rollback task.

    The selected section is expanded.

  3. Click the Start button.

    This starts the rollback task.

    The task progress status that is displayed under the name of the rollback task changes to Running.

To start or stop a rollback task when the simplified application interface is displayed:

  1. Right-click to bring up the context menu of the application icon that is in the taskbar notification area.
  2. In the Tasks drop-down list in the context menu, do one of the following:
    • Select a non-running rollback task to start it.
    • Select a running rollback task to stop it.
    • Select a paused rollback task to resume or restart it.
