Weird Inputs in the Kaspersky Password Manager program

I have been using Kaspersky Password Manager for about a year without many issues.

However, recently, there is a very strange bug on my program. When I use the number bar above the QWERTY characters on the keyboard, it types some characters instead of the numbers. If I use Shift, it types the capitalized version of said characters, instead of these characters ! @ # $ %. This issue also happen at the start screen when the program asks me to input my master password also, making it very inconvenient (since I have special characters in my password) and insecure for me to unlock my passwords. This only happen in my Kaspersky Password Manager and no other programs. I can type numbers normally with the numpad.

Here’s a photo of what it types when I try to type in 1 2 3 4 with the number bar.

  • KTS: are regular scans: Full, Quick, Vulnerability Scans run?
  • KTS: is Delete malicious tools, adware, auto-dialers and suspicious packagers :ballot_box_with_check: ‘d?
  • I appreciate the (unicode/ascii/latin) character issue only happens with KPM, however, to fix this please follow these steps:

Thanks for replying. Here’s what you want to know

  1. I’m running Microsoft Windows 10, version 1803, build 17134.1069

Hi,

For some reasons, the KPM issue seems to have resolve itself without me fixing anything for now. I have not followed your instructions, but now I can type in my password normally.

 

However, I will still answer the questions you had for me.

  1. I have Total Security updating itself automatically. I didn’t know that it’s running an old version. Is there way to check for a update manually?
  2. The Scans can run as normal. I have run them and the results came back without any problems.
  3. That option is checked.

Hello @Edward T. D.

Thank you for posting back:pray_tone3: .
I’m very happy to hear the issue is resolved:clap_tone3: .

  • Regarding version updating, how often is your computer fully shutdown & how are the following configured:

  1. Disable scheduled tasks while running on battery power?
  2. Use Gaming mode?
  3. Postpone computer scan tasks when the CPU and disk systems are at high load?

  1. New application versions

Update settings window

I personally prefer to uninstall old software, save only License information, reboot, download and install new software, reboot, restart device, login, start KTS application, run manual database update, run manual full scan & ensure the application is synced with the MyKaspersky online account, however, this (uninstalling) is not mandatory. 

It is most important to prepare the system and check all software and hardware compatabilty requirements before installing new software.
