Sometimes when Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 is running, you may notice that computer or certain programs work slower. This happens because of lack of system resources. You can improve your computer's performance by doing the following: 

  1. Open Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014.
  2. In the lower part of the window, click the Settings link.

  1. In the Settings window go to the Performance component and then:
  • In the Battery Saving section toggle on the option Disable scheduled scan tasks while running on battery power.
  • In the Gaming Profile section, select the Use Gaming Profile check box. This option will optimize settings of all Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 components while your gaming applications work in full-screen mode. For example, you will not be distracted by pop-up notifications when playing. 

  • In the Computer resources section select the following check boxes:
  • In the Computer resources section toggle off the option Perform rootkit scan. Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 will not be performing rootkit search in the background.

  1. Click the Pause File Anti-Virus and do the following:
  • In the Pause File Anti-Virus window select the Pause from check box and specify the time.
  • If you would like the File Anti-Virus to pause whenever a certain program starts, click Add.

  • In the Open window browse for the executable file of the program (the one with the .exe extension) and click the Open button.

  • In the Pause File Anti-Virus window click the Save button.

  1. Close the application window.
