Is Kaspersky AV good without "Application Control"?

"Application Control" is one of the protection/proactive features, right?

So why KAV doesn't have "Application Control"?

Yes, KAV does not have AC (HIPS)...

Like others av firms, They have different products: KAV (only antivirus), KIS (complete suite) and KTS (complete suite + added tools) :)
But isn't AC kinda Proactive protection? How can they not include a Proactive feature in Paid AV?

I don't know why it's not available in Kaspersky Anti-Virus except their Application Control (dubbed HIPS) is only available in their more advanced security products.

Kaspersky Internet Security is an application designed to ensure comprehensive protection of your computer. Compared to Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security provides a range of additional advanced options as part of the following components and features:
  • Application Control
  • Trusted Applications mode
  • Parental Control
  • Firewall
  • Network Attack Blocker
  • Safe Money
  • Blocking access to dangerous websites
  • Network Monitor
  • Anti-Spam
  • Anti-Banner

In Google, you can search Kaspersky Forums using, site:forum.kaspersky.com "application control" To see if you can find any related information.

KAV has good enough signature/KSN (Cloud) protection, the only weakness (which is also in KIS & KTS) is protection against PUP/PUA/Adware, even enabling setting: Detect Other software that... but You can run MBAM Free/ZAM/AdwCleaner along side with KAV as a companion/complement tools.

@yesnoo: Well nothing wrong to have it since basically acts as siteadvisor thing from your searches. ;)
What siteadvisor?

Even if I remove the toolbar, I get safety ratings on search.

Does removing toolbar affects any safe money functions?

I am trying KTS. Its running light here on Win 10 64 Pro Laptop with 6 GB RAM. Boot time, system/program response, browsing, etc everything is good. Its running better than my previous suite Eset Smart Security. I am impressed.

I think safety rates on searches (K flags in links when searching in Google) it is now working in traffic level, even if You disable "Kaspersky Protection" add-on in browsers...
Yes safety rating works with addon removed too.

So whats the use of addon? Why it is installed?
How to enable Kaspersky Protection plug-ins to use Safe Money in Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox
The link mention you may encounter error with plugin not installed. I dont understand its purpose with safe money. Why is it needed with safe money, what it does with safe money?

Taken form the new online help in the upcoming KIS/KTS/KAV2017:
About protection of financial transactions and online purchases

To enable interaction with pages of protected websites, Kaspersky Total Security embeds a specially configured script into pages of websites. The application can embed the script either on its own or with the help of the Kaspersky Protection extension. The extension is also required for full support of Protected Browser. If the extension is not installed, the browser prompts you to install it at the first startup in Protected Browser mode. If you choose not to install the Kaspersky Protection extension, you can install it later.

Getting started

In order for Kaspersky Total Security to fully support browsers, the Kaspersky Protection extension has to be installed and enabled in browsers. Kaspersky Total Security uses the Kaspersky Protection extension to embed a script into the web page opened in Protected Browser and into traffic. The application uses this script to interact with the web page and to transmit data to banks whose websites are protected by the Safe Money component. The application protects data transmitted by the script using a digital signature. Kaspersky Total Security can embed the script without using the Kaspersky Protection extension.

Anyway you can visit it here: Kaspersky Total Security, and in Search form (on the left) type: Kaspersky Protection extension

It mention uses KPE to embed a script into the webpage And also mention can embed script without KPE so why extension?

I dont know but guess extension is not required to embed script as can be done without extension And guess extension is installed for private browsing i.e blocking tracking, analytics, etc...?

Harlan,

I am trying KIS 2016.

On protected browser I get popup Kaspersky is not providing complete protection of your data - protection against screenshots is disabled.
I checked settings & protection against screenshots option is enabled.
I checked TaskManager - Performance -
Virtualization - Disabled
Hyper-V Support - Yes

So I guess I can enable Virtualization & prob solved.

But I want to know 1 thing.
I use Rollback Rx Pro. Would enabling Virtualization affect Rollback Rx Pro functioning?

Win 10 Pro 64 Bits

I also have RollBack Rx Pro. I was using KIS. Nothing's broken with my laptop. Snapshots and rollbacks were flawless.
