Enabling or disabling Advanced Disinfection technology

If Kaspersky Endpoint Security cannot halt the execution of a piece of malware, you can use the Advanced Disinfection technology. By default, Advanced Disinfection is disabled because this technology uses a significant amount of computing resources. Therefore, you can enable Advanced Disinfection only when working with active threats.

Advanced Disinfection works differently for workstations and servers. To use the technology on servers, you must enable immediate advanced disinfection in the properties of the Anti-Virus Scan task. This prerequisite is not necessary to use the technology on workstations.

To enable or disable the Advanced Disinfection technology:

  1. In the main application window, click the button icon_settings.
  2. In the application settings window, select Advanced settingsGeneral.
  3. In the Operating mode section, select or clear the Enable Advanced Disinfection technology check box to enable or disable Advanced Disinfection technology.
  4. Save your changes.

As a result, the user cannot use most operating system features while Active Disinfection is in progress. When the disinfection is complete, the computer is rebooted.
