Tried KIS a few years back and uninstalled after a year for Security/Political reasons.
Won't use it again.

I am not using it anymore as well since it decreased the lifetime of my SSD when it started to extract clonezilla backups to scan the compressed .xz archives for malware.

Several TB of host controller writes.. smdh  :(
they don't care to fix issues, nothing but false promises and delay tactics

CCleaner detected a serious error.
Not everyone advises to use CCleaner:
https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/stop-using-ccleaner-windows/ (not my personal point of view).

Always make a restore point when making changes to the registry.

BSI warnt vor dem Einsatz von Kaspersky-Virenschutzprodukten
https://www.bsi.bund.de/DE/Service-Navi/Presse/Pressemitteilungen/Presse2022/220315_Kaspersky-Warnung.html



BSI warns against the use of Kaspersky antivirus products

Location: Bonn
Date: 15.03.2022

The Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) warns according to §7 BSI law against the use of antivirus software from the Russian manufacturer Kaspersky. The BSI recommends replacing applications from Kaspersky's portfolio of antivirus software with alternative products.

Antivirus software, including the associated real-time cloud services, has extensive system permissions and must maintain a permanent, encrypted and unauditable connection to the manufacturer's servers for system-related reasons (at least for updates). Therefore, trust in a manufacturer's reliability and self-protection, as well as its authentic ability to act, is critical to the secure use of such systems. If there are doubts about the manufacturer's reliability, antivirus software poses a particular risk to an IT infrastructure that is to be protected.

The actions of military and/or intelligence forces in Russia, as well as the threats made by the Russian side against the EU, NATO and the Federal Republic of Germany in the course of the current armed conflict, are associated with a considerable risk of a successful IT attack. A Russian IT manufacturer may itself carry out offensive operations, be forced to attack target systems against its will, or itself be spied upon as a victim of a cyber operation without its knowledge, or be misused as a tool for attacks against its own customers.

All users of antivirus software can be affected by such operations. Companies and public authorities with special security interests and operators of critical infrastructures are particularly at risk. They have the option of seeking advice from the BSI or the relevant constitutional protection authorities.

Companies and other organizations should carefully plan and implement the replacement of essential components of their IT security infrastructure. If IT security products and, in particular, antivirus software were to be switched off without preparation, they might be left defenseless against attacks from the Internet. Switching to other products involves temporary losses in convenience, functionality and security. The BSI recommends that an individual evaluation and consideration of the current situation be carried out and, if necessary, that BSI-certified IT security service providers be consulted.
