That's normal, Device Security in W11 uses Microsoft Hyper-V... so probably incompatible with Kaspersky hypervisor... You can't have both.
So I need to disable Kaspersky hypervisor, right? Where to find it?

And if I disabled Kaspersky hypervisor does that means any feature in Kaspersky using virtual environment will not work like virtual KB, Safe Money etc?

That's right:

The CPU of my old lap does not support Virtualization, that's why appears that warning in the pic.
Mine I just bought a 13th Gen laptop last week. Now testing Kaspersky Standard

Kaspersky hypervisor affects only Kaspersky features. Whilst Win hyper-v affects many things in Windows

If this is the case then I'll give up Kaspersky

Yes, it is Your best bet if in W11.

I think I'll go back to Avast Premium Security. It is running without issue with Win 11 on my another 10th gen laptop. This older laptop has lesser Device Security features than the newer 13th gen

Avast also has hardware-assisted virtualization


But not sure it has issues on my 13th gen laptop

I have removed Kaspersky Standard

I believe the Device Security issue in Win 11 whereby CET could not be enabled is still there. Furthermore, I have tried many ways to settle it but could not basing on suggestions on the net. The most likely cause was due to a firmware update recently, as users said. So now waiting for another firmware update to address it.

If Device Security is affecting Kaspersky and Avast (below) then the best way is to use Windows Defender, the default AV, otherwise many things need to be disabled in the 3rd-party AV

Does Kaspersky Standard encrypt the login and password on websites and is Kaspersky Hypervisor essential for the encryption?

This problem showed up in the beta build a few weeks ago. Same behavior, Kaspersky throws up a warning and a simple reboot fixes it. I'm quite sure it was even reported in the Hub,, although I can't check right now, but of course whatever triggers the problem was not changed by Microsoft before it was released in the stable channel.

Probably K. Hypervisor is required, and VK is not required if You alternatively use Kaspersky Protection add-on in supported browser and Secure Data Input is enabled. In browser protected fields, You will get a Kaspersky small tooltip warning You that protection is enabled.
