Kaspersky Antivirus Impossible to Disable Autoscan Removable Drives

Dear Friend I’ve installed few minutes ago the new Kaspersky Antivirus release on my Pc Windows 8.1 (64 bit)

Well..now when I connect a usb pendrive to the pc ,kaspersky automatically starts the scan of the pendrive.
I would like to disable this function but if in the scan area I go to the removable drives scans section and then I try to disable the function from here ... Kaspersky only offers me the possibility to do it for a maximum of 30 minutes.

Instead I would like to disable the automatic scan permanently when I connected Usb drives ..
How can I do...?
Thanks a lot to everyone…

Best regards

Hello @Alebit


If the Removable drives scan OFF switch & Save is selected, no scan of removable drives will happen. 

In the “Are you sure you want to change the settings”, “Do not prompt for confirmation during the next x timeframe” popup window, leave the default → Not selected, there will be no time constraint to changing the settings. 

This popup does not have any bearing on how long the Removable drives scan OFF switch & save is activated




Thank you:pray_tone3:
