It seems Kaspersky isn't for novice users. I should not install it on any novice user computer or It will just make things more complicated.

So Kaspersky will not monitor the suspicious activity of trusted applications. Am I right?

Kaspersky in defaults settings is good enough for any novice/standard user, with minimal tweaks...

Kaspersky even for Trusted application monitors some activities, You can check rules for Trusted Applications, even You can create exclusions for some activities...

Kaspersky already has Application control then what is the use of Trusted application mode.

What is the difference between two.
Application Control is the HIPS part, which may allow or block program operations. TAM is a lock-down mode option, meaning to say, everything else not on the whitelist is blocked.

TAM seems more like a voodoo shield(without the sandbox) of Kaspersky. TAM verifies the developer signature instead of cloud scanning the entire software. Application control is based on heuristics scanning.
