I am running a MS-Windows 10 BYOD laptop in a corporate environment. The company uses PAC (proxy auto-config) configuration and requires each user to login into the proxy for network access (same credentials as domain login). So the network proxy is not transparent.
Kaspersky Internet Security (home version) is constantly prompting me to login in. I enter my login and Kaspersky can access the network for database updates etc. The settings under "Proxy Server Settings" are set to "Automatically detect proxy server settings" and the "User proxy server authentication" username and password has been set.
What is annoying is I am constantly prompted for a login (up to a dozen times on logging in and then constantly through out the day). The Kaspersky prompt takes focus away from other applications and there appears no way to stop this.
Other programs, like VSCode, Intellij PyCharm, Firefox, and Chrome, prompt me once on startup for the network login and then remember the the login for the session.
I would like Kaspersky to remember the login and use it. Or use the system proxy settings set in "Control Panel > Internet Properties > Connections > LAN Settings" that is configured for PAC config.
What can be done?
