Secure Connection keeps disconnecting

Userlevel 1
Since last week Secure Connection keeps randomly disconnecting. This defeats the point of having a VPN. Is anyone else experiencing this? Windows 10 pc with stable internet connection.

Did you try out several virtual locations ?
Also , are you running the latest KSC 2019 version ?

Thank you for replying.
I bought it in December 2018. It says Version
I generally use Ukraine as virtual location. I've always had a good speed from there.
I'll try other locations and see what happens.

Hello  @haydez,


  1. Is KSC-VPN on the latest version? 
  2. Since installing KSC-VPN, has the “disconnects” issue always existed? 
  3. If Windows is run in SafeMode with Networking, does the issue persist? 
  4. Have you uninstalled & reinstalled KSC-VPN, with reboots in between each step?
  5.  Have you followed  @Igor Kurzin’s advice?
  • The Tech Team will assist you to capture & submit traces as the issue is replicated.
  • They will also possibly require GSI & Windows Logs, which can be prepared in advance. 

Please let us know?

Thank you

I have to admit, I don’t know if the problem was fixed since I started using another country as my default and it’s been a solid connection ever since. Haven’t tried Ukraine connection since.

JohnnyRD, which country would you recommend? I have same random disconnection issue forever, and as of Feb 2020 no fix, even though connection is not idle, there is up/downloading going on.

I have tried US, Canada, UK with same problem..  not sure if this is a Kaspersky or ISP issue..

Hello @snoman,


  1. What KSC-VPN version is installed? 
  2. Is the router/modem/network device firmware up-to-date?
  3. Have you reset the router/modem/network device?
  4. Have you done a full network reset? 
  5. Are there any Network errors logged in Windows Event Logs? 
  6. Have you run Windows Network Troubleshooter? 
  7. Does the “intermittent” disconnect happen irrespective of browser used? 
  8. What other apps are active when the “intermittent” disconnect happens? 
  9. Are all Windows updates applied successfully? 
  10. Have you done a cleanup of C:\Windows\Temp &  C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Local\Temp?
  11. Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling KSC-VPN?

For in-depth analysis & possible resolution, please log a case with Kaspersky Technical Support, they will ask for a GSI & Windows Logs & may ask for traces, run over periods, to capture the “intermittent” disconnects, if required, they will step you the steps necessary to capture the traces. 

Please let us know the outcome? 

Thank you:pray_tone3:
