Starting an update task under the rights of a different user account

By default, the Kaspersky Endpoint Security update task is started on behalf of the user whose account you have used to log in to the operating system. However, Kaspersky Endpoint Security may be updated from an update source that the user cannot access due to a lack of required rights (for example, from a shared folder that contains an update package) or an update source for which proxy server authentication is not configured. In the Kaspersky Endpoint Security settings, you can specify a user that has such rights and start the Kaspersky Endpoint Security update task under that user account.

To start an update task under a different user account:

  1. In the main application window, go to the Update section.
  2. This opens the task list; select the update task and click icon_settings.
  3. Click Run database updates with user rights.
  4. In the window that opens, select Other user.
  5. Enter the account credentials of a user with the necessary permissions to access the update source.
  6. Save your changes.
