How to Disable Kaspersky from Updating Automatically?

Kaspersky is a multinational anti-virus and cyber security provider. Its Headquarters are based in Moscow in Russia and the holding company that operates it is based in the United Kingdom’s. Founded by Eugene Kaspersky, his wife Natalya Kaspersky and their friend Alex De-Monderik in the year 1997, Kaspersky Lab sells and develops endpoint security, password management, internet security, antivirus, among other cyber security services and products. The current CEO is one of the original founders, Eugene Kaspersky.

Why the Updates?

Considering the frequency with which it happens, it is not unreasonable to wonder why Kaspersky Lab updates so much. This is because the endpoint security products owned by Kaspersky Lab are all signature based. These signatures have to constantly stay updated. Else, the AV will no longer be relevant.

Moreover, the software is updated regularly for bug fixes and other miscellaneous improvements which keep adding up to the standard update the user can get all the information with regard to the updates by paying a visit at Kaspersky Support Number UK.

New Trojans and Thread Worms are created every single day. Kaspersky Lab works towards researching any new harm that may come in the way of your cyber security and looks for ways to protect you. This explains the constant updates, and perhaps makes them sound reasonable.

How to stop them?

In order to stop the updates, you will have to disable the updates that occur offline on Kaspersky. To do that, first, open Kaspersky Security. From here, go to Policies and click on Kaspersky Security Centre 10 Network Agent, and select Properties from the context menu.

Now, look for Settings, where you may clear or select the checkbox titled “Download updates and anti-virus databases from Administration Server”. After you click on OK, start the registry editor that has the regedit command.

Select the following paths depending on your system:

• Operating systems with 64-bit:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KasperskyLab\Components\34\1093\1.0.0.0\ServerFlags

• Operating systems with 32-bit:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\KasperskyLab\Components\34\1093\1.0.0.0\ServerFlags

Now, you will have to create a parameter (DWORD) with the name of Server Disable Offline Updates. If you wish to enable this parameter, you will have to set the value to 0 and alternatively, if you wish to disable the parameter, you can set the value to

1. Following this, the Administration Server will have to be restarted for you to apply these changes.

The procedure is not very complicated and has a high probability of solving your issues. However, in case you find it too complicated, or the procedure does not work for you, it may be because your issue resides elsewhere.

In such a case, you can always call the Kaspersky Support Number UK or ask for their support online. This will help you solve your issue in due time as the support is timely and supportive.
