Pausing protection means temporarily disabling all protection components for some time.
When protection is paused or Kaspersky Internet Security is not running, the activity of the applications running on your computer is monitored. Information about the results of monitoring of application activity is saved in the operating system. When Kaspersky Internet Security is started again or protection is resumed, the application uses this information to protect your computer from malicious actions that may have been performed when protection was paused or when Kaspersky Internet Security was not running. Information about the results of monitoring of application activity is stored indefinitely. This information is deleted if Kaspersky Internet Security is removed from your computer.
To pause the protection of your computer:
The Pause protection window opens (see the following figure).
