Kaspersky Total Security Blocking Local Network

Kaspersky Total Security Blocking Local Network

Norton Antivirus Mac

Basically, Kaspersky is antivirus software that protects your network device against malicious files like Viruses, Trojans, Worms, Spyware, Adware, Ransomware, and other forms of malware by regularly scanning the files stored on your computer. Also, Kaspersky Antivirus uses intelligent real-time protection, so when you browse over the Internet, it will block certain malicious websites from accessing your personal data. Exceptions help us separate the details of what to do when something out of the ordinary happens from a program's main logic. But always keep in mind that applying an exception to a file means that the Kaspersky Antivirus software will not monitor that particular file for any malicious activity in the future. Apart from this, most Mac users complain that the Mac OS performance slows down when having the antivirus running in the background; that’s why you may wish to temporarily disable Kaspersky Antivirus to see the results on your computer’s performance. Here we have given two of the common troubleshooting methods to get rid of the Kaspersky total security blocking local network issue.

Things to remember:

  • Disable your Kaspersky Antivirus program only when installing new programs.
