I didn't see option?  On the taskbar correct. 

Hello @Moneymasternow

Also, in the latest version of Kaspersky AV software 21.2.16.590, the context menu has been modified.

On the Windows Taskbar, rightclick the Kaspersky icon, then select Pause protection:

 

 

Thank you🙏🏽

Hello,

  1.  i would like to hear the answer to that question as well.
  2. I am standing in front of the decision, if i should update my windows not. 

Hello @antiTrojan,

Welcome again!

  1. @Moneymasternow wanted to know how to find the “Pause protection” option, so she could update Windows.
  2. Kaspersky recommends using the latest version of their software with the latest Operating system version available. 
  3. BEFORE updating Windows, make sure all critical data is backed up & you have created a current System restore point. 
  4. AFTER updating Windows, do a clean install of the latest Kaspersky software version 21.2.16.590 & patches (a) & (b)

Thank you🙏🏽
