Changing the operating status of an Application Startup Control rule

All predefined Application Startup Control rules have the Enabled status. If an Application Startup Control rule is enabled, Application Startup Control applies the rule. A new Application Startup Control rule also has the Enabled status after it is created.

You can disable any Application Startup Control rule. If an Application Startup Control rule is disabled, Application Startup Control temporarily stops applying the rule.

You can also test the operation of any Application Startup Control rule.

To change the operating status of an Application Startup Control rule:

  1. Open Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console.
  2. In the Managed devices folder of the console tree, open the folder with the name of the administration group to which the relevant protected virtual machines belong.
  3. In the workspace, select the Policies tab.
  4. Select a Light Agent for Windows policy in the list of policies and open the Properties: <Policy name> by double-clicking.
  5. In the Light Agent for Windows policy properties window, select the Application Startup Control section in the list on the left.
  6. In the right part of the window, the settings of the Application Startup Control component are displayed.
  7. In the Application Startup Control settings section, in the drop-down list, select the Application Startup Control operating mode for which you want to change the status of the rule: Allowlist or Denylist.
  8. In the table of rules, select the Application Startup Control rule whose operating status you want to change.
  9. In the Status column, do one of the following:
    • If you want to enable the rule, select the On value.
    • If you want to disable the rule, select the Off value.
    • If you want to test the operation of a rule, select the Test value. This rule operating status signifies that Kaspersky Security does bot block the startup of applications to which the rule applies but logs information about the startup of these applications in reports.
  10. Click the Apply button.
