With this button you can enable / disable Web Anti-Virus.
If the button is green, Web Anti-Virus protects data that is received via the HTTP and FTP protocols, and prevents dangerous scripts from being run on the computer.
A small computer program or an independent part of a program (function) that, in most cases, has been developed to execute a small specific task. It is most often used with programs that are embedded in hypertext. Scripts are run, for example, when you open a particular website.
If real-time protection is enabled, the application tracks the execution of scripts, intercepts them, and scans them for viruses. Depending on the results of scanning, you may block or allow the execution of a script.
If the button is red, Web Anti-Virus is disabled.

In the Security level section, you can select one of the predefined collections of settings (security levels) for Web Anti-Virus.
When this security level is selected, Web Anti-Virus applies maximum scrutiny to scripts and objects that arrive via the HTTP and FTP protocols. Web Anti-Virus performs thorough scanning of all objects, using the complete set of application databases, and scans all embedded archives whose size does not exceed 1 MB. Web Anti-Virus performs a deep heuristic analysis.
A technology for detecting threats about which information has not yet been added to Kaspersky databases. The heuristic analyzer detects objects whose behavior in the operating system may pose a security threat. Objects detected by the heuristic analyzer are considered to be probably infected. For example, an object may be considered probably infected if it contains sequences of commands that are typical of malicious objects (open file, write to file).
This security level ensures optimal protection and speed when scanning web traffic and scripts. Web Anti-Virus scans embedded archives whose size does not exceed 1 MB, and performs medium-level heuristic analysis.
This security level ensures the maximum speed when scanning web traffic and scripts. Web Anti-Virus does not scan archives and performs light heuristic analysis.
Clicking the link causes Kaspersky Total Security to apply the Recommended security level. The link is displayed if you have modified the URL Advisor settings in the Advanced settings of Web Anti-Virus window in the Additional section.
In the drop-down list, you can select the action that Web Anti-Virus performs when an infected or probably infected object is detected:
This value is selected by default if automatic protection mode is enabled. If interactive protection mode is enabled, the setting is not available.
