As already said before, to recover the old K -> enter the IDDQD combination when the antivirus "About" window is open and in focus...

@harlan4096 Igor Kurzin on Kaspersky Community said that we expect the global launch of 2021 in July.
He means the official build not the TR right? TR will be out sooner these days?

Yes, I already watched that post about July...

Let's understand something, TR builds (which usually are the same as official or final) never are officially released, BUT leaked... so probably before July We'll have some leak about K2021MR0 TR hehe... I'm sure Kaspersky Support (as always) have them already, in previous years K. Support gave to some users the TR of that year to fix some bugs of previous versions...

Oh, so we don't have any UI changes in the upcoming K2021MR0 or the official build when it comes out in July?

Yes, there are some changes in GUI and in green colour, some new features as support of DoH and others removed as TAM :)

This is taken from online HELP of K2021MR0:

The best answer I expect to get about when a software will be released is "When it's ready". I hate when developers announce a date then release a mess of bugged software because it was not ready for release but they had already publicly announced that date.

I hope they improve their behavior blocker to be like Bitdefender, Bitdefender is most advanced and best behavior blocker I seen in AV so far and some features like UEFI scanner and monitoring connected home devices like in ESET

some times Kaspersky miss some notepad viruses that saved in .bat extension and some tests that made by spyshelter and other testing software and simulation trojan software on the other hand Bitdefender manage to keep the system protected I was disappointed with Kaspersky performance although I used it for 5 years it missed also a miner trojan I reported most of these viruses and I hope they improve their protection and heuristics to detect new variants and unknown threats

But why they didn't implement UEFI scanner and connected home devices monitoring like ESET?

I see that ESET is rich of security features and one step a head with it's technology but, it is still weak in terms of behavior blocker and HIPS.

If there is anything, I'd like to see Kaspersky implementing from Bitdefender is its informative Central. Bitdefender Central actually reports if any installation from your license blocked something when it happened and which site it came from. For anyone taking care of security for the entire family it's really good as you know to whom you must explain why certain sites/files are bad.

Here is a screenshot if you never saw it in action...
