Does anyone know anything regarding this issue?
"Please, for the love of God, don’t go near this program! Here is a link to a thread you really need to read before you should even THINK of installing anything Kaspersky!
This program installs “Object Identifiers” that even Microsoft disapproved of! Unless you imaged your drive THERE IS NO SAFE WAY AS OF THIS WRITING TO REMOVE THESE Identifiers! Worse, is KAV’s Attitude! They barely wanted to acknowledge the issue! Please DO NOT INSTALL THIS HORRIBLE PROGRAM!
YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!"
Apparently the problem is with Iswift? I have no idea.
"Kaspersky, You lost me at ISwift…
Forever… and I mean it…
I think it’s a terrible shame what they did and how they are now choosing to respond to the situation. I decided to start another thread because I don’t want to see this thread here get “hijacked”…
»The Best Free Antivirus Program?
No answers or solutions yet, eh, Kaspersky?
I will, in the next two weeks, have to revert back to a previous image on three computers. It will probably take me two weeks with my work schedule to get them all done. If Kaspersky had a removal tool for their “problem” I wouldn’t be so upset.
I can’t believe these clowns. Anyone who installs AOL Active Shield is equally at risk, but AOL probably doesn’t care.
I never thought I’d say it, but Hello, AVG Free, or Avira!
And I don’t need my intelligence insulted by a KAV rep implying I am making too much out of nothing; Chekdsk is ruined for me. It hangs like crazy at Stage 2. For two weeks I couldn’t figure it out. Never thought it would be my AV.
Kaspersky, I bought your KIS6,for $11, but with this crap, if I knew then what I know now, even that amount of money is too much… Security is a wonderful thing, but not at the expense of ruining and or altering a basic function of the computer. You guys at Kaaspersky can argue all you want, but you know you’re wrong.
"Just uncheck ISwift, why is that so hard?
To add a note… I’m a Kaspersky reseller and have been installing KL products on machines since version 4, hundreds of installs, and have never seen this issue once. I can’t help but to think it is a conflict with another installed application on the computer.
I’m not saying it is or isn’t, just making the observation that with as many installs as I have done never has this problem occurred."
"iSwift operating principles:
The technology has been developed for NTFS file system. In this system NTFS-identifier is given to each object. This NTFS-identifier is compared with the values in the special iSwift database. If the values do not coincide with the NTFS-identifier then the object is scanned or rescanned, if it has been changed.
InformationThis algorithm considers the previous scan date and decides whether the object should be re-scanned or not. The decision is based on a geometric series with some random elementS: for example if from the moment of the first scan to the last scan the same period or more passed then the object will be re-scanned. The algorithm does not consider intermediate object scans and their number, only the time period between the first and the last scan is considered. The object will be also scanned in the case of the object settings being changed to stricter ones.
Advantages of iSwift technology:
* iSwift is quicker than iChecker, as it does not calculate check sums of scanned objects.
* It works with objects of any formats, sizes and types.
Restricitions of iSwift technology:
* The technology is connected to a definite file location in the file system. If the file was copied/ relocated then it is scanned again.
* The technology can be used for NTFS file system only. That is why it does not function under Microsoft Windows 98SE/ME/ .
InformationThe iSwift technology does not function in Kaspersky Lab’s products versions 22.214.171.1249-126.96.36.1991, as well as under Windows XP 64-bit."
does anyone know anything about this issue? I have to admit, regarding this issue, I know nothing.
