Kaspersky Antivirus 2019 - error resolving network name

So today i just started my PC and when i logged into Windows 10 i saw a notification in which was saying


“Application databases not updated” and it also said “error resolving network name”


Any ideas why this happened ? I’m using Kaspersky Antivirus 2019.


Here is also a screenshot. I’m using a router, but i have an internet cable in my PC also.


Edit :

The issue seems to have dissappeared now after i waited about 15-20 min and KAV update itself.


I think i might have fast startup enabled in my Win 10. Was that the cause ?


Also i found on the web on the older kaspersky forums that someone said that updating the status of the license helps.

Does this issue only happen when the PC is first started up? How many times has the issue occurred? How often? Does the error resolve after waiting a short time for your entire system to come on line?

I’m not really sure. Today was the first time i saw it. It doesn’t happen always, at least i hope it won’t since today was the first time.


It was actually resolved by itself. After 15-20 minutes after i logged into windows, KAV updated itself without a problem and the issue was gone.


I think fast startup is enabled in my OS. Could it have something to do with that ?

Did the OS boot up too fast for KAV to recognize it had internet connection ?

Perhaps KAV couldn’t “detect” the internet connection right away because fast startup is enabled in the OS ?

If your environment has been configured that way for a while, then that would not be to blame. Please post back if it happens again.

Well i think that back when i had Win 7, i think i did not have fast startup enabled on it. Only on Win 10 it seems fast startup is enabled by itself, but i like it because it boots to desktop well… fast :smile:


Will definetly post here if it happens again. I hope it won’t though. :smile:


Just one thing : if it does happen again, and it gets solved again after KAV updates itself 15-20 minutes after startup, should i leave it like that ?


If it happens again, do you think it’s worth to try the update the status of the license like it said on the old kaspersky forum ?
