Computer protection scope

Objects detected by Kaspersky Internet Security are divided into categories based on various attributes. The application always searches for viruses, worms, Trojans, and malicious utility tools. These programs may cause significant damage to your computer. To ensure more reliable protection for your computer, you can extend the list of detectable objects by enabling the application to check for legitimate software that can be used by intruders to damage your computer or personal data.

The objects that Kaspersky Internet Security protects against are grouped as follows:

Select the categories of objects to detect

Depending on the selected categories of objects to detect, Kaspersky Internet Security uses some or all of its anti-virus databases when running File Anti-Virus, Web Anti-Virus, and virus scan tasks.

Note: If Kaspersky Internet Security classifies an application as malware but you believe it is safe, you can add this application to Trusted Zone.

Trusted Zone is a list of objects that Kaspersky Internet Security does not scan or monitor. You may need to add objects to Trusted Zone if, for example, Kaspersky Internet Security blocks access to a file, application, or website even though you are absolutely sure that this object, application, or web address is harmless.

When an application is added to Trusted Zone, its file and network activities (including suspicious ones) are no longer monitored. However, Kaspersky Internet Security continues to scan the executable file and process of the trusted application.

Add/remove a file or folder to/from the list of trusted files and folders

Add/remove a trusted web address to/from the list of trusted web addresses

Enable monitoring of a trusted web address
