Hello! I am trying out Kaspersky demo, to switch from my current AV. I mostly like what I see. It took some time to make it get along with Revo Uninstaller and with WSL, but I did it. However, one problem persists.
I use Win 10 Pro and I use Hyper-V virtual machines a lot. Hyper-V creates virtual ethernet card, called “vEthernet(Default switch)”. Kaspersky, for some reason, does not keep track of my choice for this card, and shows “New network found” question all the time. “All the time means”: on every reboot, every time I start virtual machine in Hyper-V, every time I start Windows Sandbox, every time I connect Bluetooth mouse for some reason, and sometimes without any cause. What’s worse, it blocks this card, and all Internet on the computer, until I click “Trusted”, which causes a cascade of failures and complaints from other apps.
What I tried to do
In Firewall settings → Networks I have set everything to Trusted, both cards and groups. (see below). However, every time Kaspersky asks me again, whole group settings are reset to default.
I tried adding every executable related to Hyper-V (See below again) to exceptions. Neither helped.
This machine is stationary, located on a secure network, so I am completely OK with disabling the monitoring of all network cards and networks. But I need the application firewall, so I don’t agree to turn it off.
I need to sort it out before commiting to this antivirus, and only 15 days left on demo. Please advice.

It would be good to consult Kaspersky Technical Support, and share their solution here in the Community.
