I used the payed version of Kaspersky in the past. Then I tried Kaspersky Free. And I noticed, that Kaspersky Free does not support VeraCrypt very well:
I mounted a VeraCrypt-Container and let Windows search for a file. The heuristic of Kaspersky Free found some dangerous programs hidden in my own programs. Well this is was a false alarm, but for personal reasons, I can't send you the files.
Kaspersky Free moved the files from the VeraCrypt-Container into the quarantine. I tried to move the files back, but Kaspersky Free told me that the original location is no longer available. I tried to restore the files to a new location. But the dialog to select the location did not show my mounted VeraCrypt-Container (means the drive-letter was not there). The Container was still mounted and I was able to fix this issue by:
- Disable protection, since KAV moves the restored file instantly back to quarantine.
- Restore the file to my desktop.
- Move the file to the still mounted VeraCrypt-Container.
- Unmount Container.
- Enable protection.
Edit: It would be nice, if I could whilelist a file, since the heuristic did this thing 2 times again in the past.
