Based on the information about the operating system and applications installed on the protected virtual machine, Kaspersky experts will recommend optimum security settings for the virtual machine. While using Kaspersky Security, you can always restore the standard application settings on the protected virtual machine. The settings are restored in the local interface using the Initial Configuration Wizard.

To restore the standard application settings:

  1. Open the application settings window.
  2. In the left part of the window, select the Other settings section.

    Advanced application settings are displayed in the right part of the window.

  3. In the Manage settings section, click the Restore button.

    The Initial Configuration Wizard starts.

  4. In the General information window, click the Next button to start using the Initial Configuration Wizard.
  5. The Restore settings window shows the application components and tasks whose settings have been modified.

    If custom settings have been created for any of the components during the operation of any component, they are also shown in this window. Special settings include lists of trusted web addresses, exclusions, network rules, Application Control rules, and others.

    Custom settings are created as you use Kaspersky Security, taking into account your individual tasks and security needs. Custom settings normally take a lot of time to create, which is why Kaspersky experts recommend saving them. Otherwise, all settings created during operation of the application will be lost.

    Select check boxes opposite the components and tasks for which you want to restore the standard settings.

  6. Click the Next button.
  7. At the next stage, the Initial Configuration Wizard analyzes information about Microsoft Windows applications. These applications are added to the list of trusted applications whose actions within the operating system are not subject to any restrictions. The data analysis process is displayed in the System Analysis window.

    After completing analysis of the operating system, the Initial Configuration Wizard automatically proceeds to the next step.

  8. In the Finish initial configuration of the application window, click Finish.

    The Initial Configuration Wizard closes, and the standard application settings are restored.

  9. To save changes, click the Save button.
