Databases update schedule

Clicking this link opens the Databases update schedule window in which you can select one of the database update run modes:

Automatically. Update task run mode, under which the Kaspersky application scans for the update package in the update source at a particular frequency. The scanning frequency can be increased during virus outbreaks and decreased when there are none. After detecting a fresh update package, the Kaspersky application downloads it and installs the updates on the computer.

Manually. This task run mode allows you to run the update task manually.

Every minute / Every hour / Every day / Weekly / Every month / At a specified time / After application startup. Update task run mode in which the Kaspersky application runs the update task according to the schedule you have created. If you select this update task run mode, you can also run the Kaspersky application update task manually.

Select update sources

Clicking this link opens a window with the list of update sources.

An update source is a public HTTP or FTP server or a shared folder (local or network) from where the application can download update databases and modules.

By default, the list of update sources contains Kaspersky update servers. You can add other update sources to the list.

If several update sources are selected from the list, the Kaspersky application will query them one after the other until it reaches the first available update source from which it is able to download the update package.

Run database updates as

Clicking the link opens a window in which you can choose to run the database update with a particular user’s rights.

By default, the Kaspersky application update task is run in the name of the user with whose rights you are registered in the operating system. However, the Kaspersky application can be updated from an update source to which the user does not have access rights (for example, from a shared folder containing the update package) or for which there is no configured authentication on the proxy server. You can specify a user that possesses the required rights in the application settings and run the Kaspersky application update task in the name of this user.
