If you have upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10 / RS1 / RS2 / RS3 on a computer with Kaspersky Total Security 2017 installed, the application will run the adaptation process at first system startup. Protection will be stopped for a while: only File anti-virus and the self-defense of files and registry keys will work, the user interface will be unavailable.

After adapting to the new version of the operating system, the application will restore the protection. Also, it will show the notification box informing that the reboot is required so that all the components of Kaspersky Total Security 2017 could function correctly. Until you restart the computer, the following protection components will work with limitations:

  • Application interface and startup processes protection within Self-Defense. 
  • System Watcher. 
  • Detection and disinfection of malicious software in system memory. 
  • Protection against file-encrypting malware and screen lockers. 
  • The following Safe Money features: clipboard protection, protection against unauthorized screenshots, and protection of the browser against external attacks. 
  • Application Control features of applying customer settings for some applications, categorizing new Windows style applications, and Microsoft Edge browser protection. 
  • Trusted Applications mode is limited in connection with Windows Program Data Updater service. 
  • Protection against Time-of-Check Time-of-Use (TOCTOU) attacks.
