Hello,

 

So installed KAV 2019 but i accidentally unchecked KSN option when i installed it and forgot about it.

Should i have checked KSN ?

Is it something serious, should i reinstall KAV 2019 again and check it ?

I would be tempted to uninstall old version 2019 > restart, then download and install new current version 2020 > update databases > restart. 

 

KSN is Good.

I would have, but my current license is for KAV 2016 so if go by the -1/+3 rule then i’d probably have to purchase a new license for KAV 2020.

 

On my current license i still have like 7-8 months and it works on KAV 2019. But when it expires i will probably get a new license for KAV 2020.

 

Also, one more thing. KAV 2019 installed an addon in firefox. In firefox in the addon menu it shows it’s enabled.

But when i look in the upper right corner i firefox, the icon for the addon is grey not green.

What happened ?

Was the installation of KAV 2019 on my PC messed up or something ? Or is it supposed to be like that, supposed to be grey not green ?

Here are a few images.

In firefox in the upper right corner, the KAV icon is grey not green. Is it supposed to be like that.

This is a video i found, not sure if it’s relevant or not since i use KAV not KIS.

@Mike89,

  1. KIS & KAV are different.
  2. The table I posted earlier shows the Components & Features available in KAV. 
  3. KAV: Kaspersky Protection extension/addon (shield) provides: On Screen Keyboard. 
  • Open the Kaspersky Protection extension/addon (shield), please post an image?

Thank you.

That’s correct and by design, since KAV does not have Anti-Banner nor Private Browsing modules...

Hello   @Mike89,

Thank you for the image:ok_hand_tone3:

KAV (browser) Protection extension/addon provides the On Screen Keyboad feature, not Private Browsing, nor Anti Banner, as per the table I provided earlier.

Thank you.
