The System Watcher component of Kaspersky Free collects data about actions performed by applications on your computer and shares this information with other components for improved protection.

The System Watcher component includes: 

  • Automatic Exploit Prevention, the technology which prevents and blocks the actions of exploits.
  • Protection against screen lockers, which detects and removes ad banners when you press the keyboard combination specified in the component settings.
  • Application Activity Control, which performs an action specified in the component settings when it detects suspicious application behavior.
  • Rollback of application actions, which rolls back the actions performed by a malicious application. Information about suspicious actions performed by applications is collected continuously unless you disable the component. 
In Kaspersky Free, System Watcher uses the settings recommended by Kaspersky Lab specialists. If you wish to change the System Watcher settings, switch to a Kaspersky Lab product that has extended features, such as Kaspersky Internet Security or Kaspersky Total Security.
