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. In the main application window, go to the Update section.

    A window with the list of local update tasks. The user can start the update of databases and application modules, as well as roll back the last update.

  2. In the Rollback of databases to their previous version tile, click the Roll back button.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security will start rolling back the last database update. The application will display the rollback progress, the size of the downloaded files, and the update source. You can stop the task at any time by clicking the Stop update button.

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.
