By default, Web Anti-Virus is enabled, running in a mode that is recommended by Kaspersky experts. You can disable Web Anti-Virus, if necessary.

To enable or disable Web Anti-Virus in Kaspersky Security Center:

  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 policy properties window, select the Web Anti-Virus section in the list on the left.
  6. In the right part of the window, do one of the following:
    • If you want to enable Web Anti-Virus component, select the Web Anti-Virus check box.
    • If you want to disable Web Anti-Virus component, clear the Web Anti-Virus check box.
  7. Click the Apply button.

In the local interface of Light Agent for Windows, you can enable or disable a component in two ways:

To enable or disable Web Anti-Virus on the Protection and Control tab of the main application window:

  1. On the protected virtual machine, open the main application window.
  2. Select the Protection and Control tab.
  3. Open the Manage protection section.
  4. Open the context menu of the Web Anti-Virus item and perform one of the following actions:
    • To enable Web Anti-Virus, select Enable in the menu.

      The component status icon, which is displayed on the left in the Web Anti-Virus line, changes to the icon.

    • To disable Web Anti-Virus, select Disable in the menu.

      The component status icon, which is displayed on the left in the Web Anti-Virus line, changes to the icon.

    If this menu item is unavailable, this means that you cannot enable or disable this component because the policy-defined setting is applied to protected virtual machines within the administration group.

To enable or disable Web Anti-Virus from the application settings window:

  1. On the protected virtual machine, open the application settings window.
  2. In the left part of the window, in the Anti-Virus protection section, select Web Anti-Virus.

    In the right part of the window, the Web Anti-Virus component’s settings are displayed.

    If component settings are unavailable, this means that you cannot enable or disable this component because the policy-defined setting is applied to protected virtual machines within the administration group.

  3. Do one of the following:
    • If you want to enable Web Anti-Virus component, select the Enable Web Anti-Virus check box.
    • If you want to disable Web Anti-Virus component, clear the Enable Web Anti-Virus check box.
