i have updated the beta and firefox vvpn is fixed here too - but an issue i have been having is not fixed: when an application is added to a restricted group by kaspersky, i see the on-screen notifcation, but I don't see it get added to the report..so essentially..i don't know what program it was, any suggestions?

As a test I enabled every single thing for the Save in Local Report - then I ran one of the affected programs again, I receive on-screen message that it was added to restricted group, but I still see no mention of anythign added to the restricted group in the reports.

Also one follow-up, even though I add this application to the trusted group manually myself, Kaspersky over-rides it and adds it to restricted group after I executed it again - I Remember you saying this was an outstanding bug, correct?

Having this setting enabled:

It should appear in Reports -> Intrusion Prevention:

I tested with current 21.17, but maybe a bug with beta 🤔

i had this issue with 21.17 just prior to updating to 21.18 beta yesterday....any final/other advice?

Also - whitelisting the app (i.e. adding it to trusted group) fails cause kasperskpy adds it back to restricted group - this is also a bug, correct?

Settings -> Manage Settings

To be honest the situation is even worse now. I reset. Then after re-setting I enabled every single notification both on screen and for the report page.

I then even hardened settings further to get even more programs to get added to the restricted group.

Guess what now I don't even receive the on-screen notifcations for intrusion prevention/added to restricted group (nor do I see it in the report page).

It's not that I don't get any notifcations on-screen, I get these two when my computer boots up now (after I restart - "Task started" / and I get quiet a bit of "self-defense blocked access to protected resources" - but I don't get the "added to restricted group" on-screen notification that I used to before resettings configs . again to be clear I enabled every single ons-creen and report page in the Interface settigns after having done the reset.

Any further ideas?

Did You export the previous config? re-install?

I can confirm that a 'clean' install of kaspersky has resolved this issue and i hope it stays this way. Thank you four your help.
One follow up: After white-listing (i.e. manually putting the app that kapserksy adds to restricted to TRUSTED), kaspersky then adds the app(s) back to restricted once I re-launch apps - this is a bug, correct? not an expected behavior?

Hum 🤔 weird...

No ok, maybe I should make myself clearer.

I have maunally created two rules. These two manually created rules:

#1 GENERAL rule - add all unknown application to Hard restricted group. Kaserpsky uses this rule to add said application to restricted group <-- This is expected/correct.

#2 Specific App - I have whitelisted an unknown app (set level to Trusted) - yet Kaspersky seems to be using Rule # 1 as a precedence over Rule # 2 (I think for this app it should ignore Rule #1 and apply rule #2 though right?)
