I know that in Kaspersky Internet Security you can run an application in safe mode, for better protection against viruses. Can you explain how do I do this?
As of Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 you can run any application in a safe environment, the so called Safe Mode, that provides protection against viruses and spyware. This is especially useful for running Web browsers because it protects your browser from being security hole for the whole operating system.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 includes the Safe Mode feature that allows you to run applications in an isolated environment for greater system security.
For example, you might want to run your Web browser in Safe Mode in order to prevent web-based attacks that could compromise your operating system's security.Worth noting is that any files saved or modified in Safe Mode will not be available to programs running in normal mode. To ensure data exchangeability between modes, there is a Share Folder provided.
Also make sure to use standard mode when installing new applications to avoid installation problems.
Please bear in mind, some of the 64-bit mode applications can have limited functionality when run in Safe Mode.You can create Safe Mode shortcuts to your favorite applications which removes the necessity of manually invoking the Safe Mode each time you start a new program.
To create a shortcut, open the Kaspersky Internet Security main window and select the My Security Zone section on the left-hand side of the window. Now on the window bottom select the icon of the application you wish to create Safe Mode shortcut for: right-click the icon and select Create shortcut. Specify shortcut destination and its name.
Your Safe Mode shortcut is ready to use. Launch your application by double-clicking it.
