How To Disable Kaspersky Antivirus

How to disable Kaspersky antivirus

Sometimes an installation program requests you to disable your antivirus software. The reason is that the antivirus software has difficulty determining whether the program you are installing is a legitimate program or not, as viruses can quickly take over your computer’s storage system. 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.

Things To Remember:

  • Step 1:Disable your Kaspersky antivirus program only when installing new programs.
