    Everytime I start KAV (whenever my computer starts) it begins to scan my WHOLE computer. It's killing me! Takes more then an hour with my 120gb+ HD. Can anyone please tell me how to disable this? The manual tells me that it can't be disabled. Wtf?

    There is a manual registry hack you can apply for Personal, Pro and WorkStation versions which disables the startup scan. I have used it with the Personal version and it works fine.

    1. Tweak for Personal;

    Find [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\KasperskyLab\Components\7]

    Right click the 7 in the reg entry>then select 'new DWord value' and paste in #RunStartup in the 'Name' field and enter value 00000000 in the 'data' field.

    2. KAV Pro Tweak;


    But apparently it may not work with the latest Pro version; http://forums.useice.com/cgi-bin/ikonboard.cgi?;act=ST;f=1;t=1747

    3. Tweak for the WorkStation version;


    But make sure you carry out a full on-demand scan before applying the registry-fix, to ensure your machine is clean.

    If you are not happy in manually working with the registry, there is a reg-file you can download which applies the hack as well. Details here; http://forums.useice.com/cgi-bin/ikonboard.cgi?;act=ST;f=1;t=1664;st=20

    I use Personal 5 and you can disable it like this ....

    Open KAV, click on SETTINGS, Click on CONFIGURE ON DEMAND SCAN, bottom right hand corner is a link SCHEDULE SCANNING. click on that and then select DO NOT SCAN.

    NB, this disables all scheduled scanning.
