    Hi,

    When Kaspersky's Total Security is installed, does it only disable Window's Defender's Virus and Threat Profection? Does the App and Browser control portion still works? I like it if the new EMET implementation still works.

    KTS already has anti-exploit protections.

    If you are using Kaspersky Total Security, then you do not also need to have Exploit Guard features enabled. It is overkill, might be redundant and might also cause conflicts that will cause protection breakages in both KTS and Windows.

    If you have any doubts about that statement, then ask Kaspersky support directly. They are the best source of infos regarding their product and Microsoft's new gizmos.

    Your guess is as good as mine. So it is best to be conservative to avoid conflicts and breakages.

    Everybody releases these anti-exploit protection features, but no one ever releases any documentation to answer users' inevitable questions - especially those regarding compatibility. They generally don't test for compatibility for every soft out there.

    Kaspersky did not publish documentation on whether or not Exploit Guard is completely disabled ?

    LOL, yes I know all too well.

    Somebody needs to ask them this question as many users will ask if there will be any conflicts between Exploit Guard and Kaspersky Anti-Exploit Protections.

    Well that answers that question, but it doesn't answer if there will be conflicts between Kaspersky anti-exploit protection and Exploit Guard - which doesn't require Windows Defender real-time protection to be enabled.

    And it's a joke that Microsoft only includes documentation for Administrators and none for home users. And what documentation there is, is half-baked. Microsoft just threw Exploit Guard at home users without any thought as to their ability to configure it.

    Kaspersky never gives any detailed documentation either.

    I bet most home users don't feel like digging for answers beyond the user's manual.

    Kaspersky does not list EMET as one of the security softs that conflicts with KIS\KTS, so since Exploit Guard is basically EMET you would assume that there would be no conflicts with Exploit Guard. But it is not so simple. Best to get an answer direct from Kaspersky - and someone high up and not some mere support tech.

    I don't need an answer. OP needs an answer.
