After accomplishing the Compatibility Wizard recommendations (for Outpost 2008 and newer), please, proceed with the additional steps to ensure the compatibility with Kaspersky Lab software:

Kaspersky Antivirus 2009 & 2010 / Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 & 2010:

If you experience total blocking of network connections, we recommend to disable NDIS filter of Kaspersky product responsible for low-level filtering in the following manner:

  1. Open "Start - Control Panel - Network connections"
  2. Right-click on your connection and select its "Properties".
  3. Disable KAV NDIS Filter by unticking it.
  4. Reboot your PC.

Note: This action does not compromise your security because the low-level filtering functions are done by the corresponding Outpost driver.

If you experience connections freezes with KAV and Outpost operating together (pages cannot be loaded or are loaded partially), and Outpost monitors multiple connection to port 19780 from process SYSTEM, these connections are created by KAV due to its peculiarities of processing traffic. To avoid creating connection to port 19780:

  1. Disable Kaspersky Antivirus Self-Defence.
  2. Exit the antivirus.
  3. Open the Register, folder [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\KasperskyLab\protected\AVP7\profiles\TrafficMonitor\settings] and find parameter UseKavsend, change its value to 1.
  4. Start the antivirus.
  5. Enable its self-defence.
  6. Restart the system.

    Note: If parameter UseKavsend is absent, you need to create it (DWORD) with the antivirus self-defence disabled. After that you will need to enable the self-defence and restart the system.

After you fulfill the actions specified, connections SYSTEM:19780 should not appear any longer and browser connections should not freeze any more.

Active Virus Shield:

ASV is based on Kaspersky Antivirus 6.0 engine, therefore it might evoke the same problems. However, you can eliminate them only in the safe system mode.

To boot your computer in safe mode:

  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
  3. At this menu, select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys and then press the Enter key on your keyboard.

Perform the following registry modifications:

  1. Run the Registry editor (click Start - Run. In the Run field type in regedit and click OK).
  2. Find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\KL1
  3. Add DWORD value "PatchOB" the key. Right-click KL1 and select New - DWORD Value. In the Value name field type PatchOB.

In order to avoid different problems with Internet access blocking, we strongly recommend that you perform the following steps:

  1. Follow the instruction to switch off protection against network attacks at this page.
  2. If the problem persists and Internet connections are still blocked please try to uninstall protection against network attacks or move the file KL1.SYS from the folder \WINDOWS\system32\drivers and reboot.
  3. Note: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.0 (from version 5.0.227) contains system driver KL1.SYS which starts irrespective of the protection against network attacks status. The driver is responsible for network traffic filtering and in fact functions as a firewall. More than one firewall installed generally causes different problems and instability.

  1. Right-click the Kaspersky Antivirus Monitor icon in the system tray.

  3. Click Objects.
  4. Under Scan files of the following types select Exclude by mask.
  5. Click New value and type *.mdb.
