In addition to richbuffs post:



in the log we can see if the screenshot function is executed via the original windows function, or if another program like 'Greenshot', 'Snagit' or another tool has been added. Then an exception would have to be created for this program.

It is a safety feature of KL products. It protects against screen loggers. A screenshot can only be generated by pressing the 'Print' key.
KIS 2019 (licensed) v 19.0.0.1008 (f).
Issue always existed - PFA screenshot.
Safe Money configured with both Chrome and Firefox browsers. Default is the Chrome browser.

Hello @arvipat,
Thanks for posting back.
(1) Please tell us, what "options? keys? x?" did you select to get that result, in other words, how are you "capturing" a screenshot please?
(2) Issue has always existed, may I ask, how long have you had Kaspersky software installed please?
(3) If you check KIS REPORTS, are there any events logged that give you any information about the issue?
If "yes", please export the report and upload using the "upload icon" in your reply?
----
(4) Please collect a GSI & Windows logs, upload to cloud storage of your choice and post back the link please?
Thanks
GSI refernce: https://support.kaspersky.com/common/diagnostics/3632#block7
Thanks FLOOD.

  1. I press the Windows logo (Start) button + PrtScr buttons together to capture screenshots.
  2. Not sure how long the issue has existed, but i have noticed it past 2-3 months, the period i've been using the KIS Safe Money regularly. Before that i didn't use it. I have installed the latest KIS 2019 3-4 months back, though i've been using KIS past 4-5 years.
  3. No issues listed in KIS Reports.
  4. Where do i find the GSI & Windows logs?

Hello @arvipat,
Thanks for posting back and the extrab information.
Before you download, GSI .zip or .exe, check & make sure you have Microsoft.NET Framework 2.0, if you do, download GSI zip or .exe 6.2. from https://support.kaspersky.com/common/diagnostics/3632#block7
*If Ms NET Framework 2.0 is not installed you'll need to use GSI 5.2, the links for that are further down the same page as GSI6.2.*
Steps:
+GSI6.2 downloaded
  • Reboot.
  • After you've signed back in make sure Kaspersky Software is active
  • Start Safe Money
  • Start GSI > a popup window will display, "License Agreement", read & accept
  • Another window will display [ ] "Include Windows Event logs", tick so the Windows Logs are collected
  • While the GSI is running go to Safe Money GoogleChrome & Firefox & replicate the "unable to take screenshot-black screen", as many times as you can, at least 5, wait for 10 minutes and replicate again.
  • The GSI may run for some time, it may even "look" as if it's not doing anything, it is, it's just doesn't look like it
  • Allow the GSI & Windows Logs to complete.
***It's best not to use the system while the GSI is running, apart from replicating the issue***

When complete the GSI will have created a GSI6x.zip folder, upload the folder to cloud storage of your choice an post back the link please?

Thanks so much.
Steps seem a bit complicated.
Screenshots from both browsers in their normal (non-Safe) mode are well caught.
Should i follow the process sent by you nonetheless?
