    So I wait a million years for KIS 7 to be finally released globally before downloading it :rolleyes: Then I install it on my Windows XP Pro SP2 machine, and what happens :mad: After 40 minutes Windows is still struggling to install those updates, So I think :blink: I wonder what could be causing this o_O Till I decide to shut down KIS 7 just for curiositys sake, and BOOM! :eek: those updates started installing like mosquito bites :D fast and sharp :cool: So Kaspersky was blocking those updates :mad: Cant be doing with **** like this So........ OUT YOU GO Kaspersky, untill you het your heads together again and Fix up this mess you created :ninja: Dear Me, dont get like ZoneAlarm for goodness sake :blink:

    Whats PDM? and the Kaspersky Firewall was untouched, I left it at Low Security as it was when I installed KIS

    Same here. No problems. Methinks you have something funky in your setup and you blocked something when you should have allowed it. Why not reinstall and leave it in training mode.

    One other thing... it looks like the WGA validation app was updated. Might want to try hitting the site manually and downloading the app again.

    Running any other resident security apps?

    didnt block anything cause I never got a popup to allow or disallow anything :blink: and Spy Sweeper, which incidently I had to add to the trusted zone useing safe mode and on rebooting after installing SS the bloody comp froze :mad: (Memories of SS and Agnitum spring to mind) :rolleyes:

    been using for quite a while and run windows update twice with this build, never had any issues. I only use KIS by itself though. Maybe its some conflict with some other security software.
