If it is not possible to run the update task for any reason (for example, the computer is not on at that time), you can configure the skipped task to be start automatically as soon as this becomes possible.

You can postpone starting the update task after the application starts if you select the By schedule update task run mode, and if the start time of Kaspersky Endpoint Security matches the update task start schedule. The update task can only be run after the specified time interval elapses after the startup of Kaspersky Endpoint Security.

To select the update task run mode:

  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.

  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 mode.
  4. In the window that opens, select the update task run mode:
    • If you want Kaspersky Endpoint Security to run the update task depending on whether or not an update package is available from the update source, select Automatically. The frequency of checks by Kaspersky Endpoint Security for update packages increases during virus outbreaks and is less at other times.
    • If you want to start an update task manually, select Manually.
    • If you want to configure a schedule for running the update task, select other options. Configure the advanced settings for starting the update task:
      • In the Postpone running after application startup for N minutes field, enter the time interval by which you want to postpone the start of the update task after the startup of Kaspersky Endpoint Security.
      • Select the Run scheduled scan on the next day if computer is turned off if you want Kaspersky Endpoint Security to run missed update tasks at the first opportunity.
