I'm not sure if this question has been posted before, but I am at my wit's end and, with Kaspersky's official forums being out of commission until tomorrow, I could sure appreciate some help right now. Basically, my problem is this: whenever my computer starts up, the KIS interface opens up instead of simply remaining in the system tray as it had done when I first installed it. I tried repairing the installation, but the behavior continued. Finally, I discovered that, if I switched the run registry key from HKLM to HKCU, KIS starts as expected. However, this alternative leads to a perpetual "security alert" state in Kaspersky because its normal startup entry has been removed. Is there some way to deal with this other than switching the registry keys as I have done? Thank you. My OS is Windows XP Pro SP2.
