  1. In the Saving objects window, specify the objects that should be saved. The possibility to save the program data is useful if you are going to use/ install Kaspersky PURE 2.0 later. The following data can be saved:
    • Activation data. If you save your activation data, then you will not need to activate your application when you re-install it. The product will be activated automatically.
    • Backup and quarantine files. Backup objects are backup copies of the objects you have deleted or disinfected. It is recommended that you save such objects so that they can be restored in the future. Quarantine objects are those probably infected with viruses or their modifications. Such objects contain code which is similar to that from a known virus. It is recommended that you save them since they may turn out to be uninfected, or become disinfectible after the application databases are updated.
    • Application operating settings (including Back and Restore). You can save all specified settings for all the application components.
    • iChecker data. The database contains information about scanned NTFS objects. It allows accelerating the object scan. By using the data from this database, Kaspersky PURE 2.0 only scans the objects that have been modified since the last scan.

    WarningIf a considerable time interval has elapsed between the moment you had removed an older version and the moment you had installed a newer one, we recommend that you abstain from using the iChecker database saved since the previous installation of the application. During this time interval, a malicious program may have penetrated into your computer and taken malicious actions that cannot be detected with this database, which may eventually lead to the infection of your computer.
