By default, the Kaspersky Endpoint Security update task is started on behalf of the user whose account you have used to log in to the operating system. However, Kaspersky Endpoint Security may be updated from an update source that the user cannot access due to a lack of required rights (for example, from a shared folder that contains an update package) or an update source for which proxy server authentication is not configured. In the application settings, you can specify a user that has such rights and start the Kaspersky Endpoint Security update task under that user account.

To start an update task under a different user account:

  1. In the main application window, go to the Update section.

    A window with the list of local update tasks. The user can start the update of databases and application modules, as well as roll back the last update.

    Local update tasks

  2. This opens the task list; select the Update of databases and application modules task and click Application settings icon in the form of a gear wheel..

    The task properties window opens.

  3. Click Run database updates with user rights.
  4. In the window that opens, select Other user.
  5. Enter the account credentials of a user with the necessary permissions to access the update source.
  6. Save your changes.
