Selecting protection mode

By default, Kaspersky Internet Security runs in automatic protection mode. In this mode the application automatically applies actions recommended by Kaspersky Lab in response to dangerous events. If you wish Kaspersky Internet Security to notify you of all hazardous and suspicious events in the system and to allow to decide which of the actions offered by the application should be applied, you can enable interactive protection mode.

To select protection mode:

  1. Open the application settings window.
  2. In the left part of the window, in the Protection Center section, select the General Settings subsection.
  3. In the Interactive protection section check or uncheck the boxes depending on the selected protection mode:
    • to enable interactive protection mode, uncheck the Select action automatically;
    • to enable automatic protection mode, check the Select action automatically.

      If you do not want Kaspersky Internet Security to delete suspicious objects when running in automatic mode, check the Do not delete suspicious objects box.
