I came across an older KB for Kaspersky that suggested disabling the ransomware protection.
If I disable the ransomware protection ‘System Watcher’ which also requires the disabling of ‘Application Manager’, I am able to shut down the computer automatically within 2 minutes.
Is there an object I need to add the the Exclusions for Application Management or elsewhere in the program to avoid the risk of turning off protections to shutdown system?
Such as if a system is left to attempt to shut down overnight night, such as 12 hours, it does still not shut down.
This is not an ideal work around.
