When you run a computer scan using Kaspersky application, it can consume significant system resources. In order to optimize the load on the system, you can configure Kaspersky application to run scan tasks (for system memory, the system partition, and startup objects) and to update databases when the computer is locked or the screen saver is activated. This additional setting allows you to enhance the security of your computer without sacrificing performance when you are using it.

If the computer is running on battery, Kaspersky application will not execute tasks when the computer is idle in order to prolong battery life.

To optimize the load on the operating system:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click Settings button in the lower part of the main window.

    This opens the Settings window.

  3. Go to Performance settingsPC performance optimization.
  4. Select the Postpone computer scan tasks when the CPU and disk systems are at high load check box.
