How to reserve operating system resources for computer games

When Kaspersky Anti-Virus runs in full-screen mode together with some other applications (particularly computer games), the following issues may occur:

  • Application or game performance decreases due to lack of system resources
  • Notification windows of Kaspersky Anti-Virus distract the user from the gaming process

To avoid changing the settings of Kaspersky Anti-Virus manually every time you switch to full-screen mode, you can use Gaming mode. If Gaming mode is being used and you are playing or working with applications in full-screen mode, Kaspersky Anti-Virus does not run scan and update tasks and does not display notifications.

To enable Gaming mode:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click the Settings 2019.png button in the lower part of the window.

    The Settings window opens.

  3. In the left part of the window, select the Performance section.

    The window displays the performance settings of Kaspersky Anti-Virus.

  4. Select the Use Gaming mode check box.
