  2. what's karpersky AV??? never heard of it, if that program can't remove it then try a better av program, if you want a free one i'd go with AVG it's good and might do the trick for you

    Kaspersky AV is one of the top 3 AV scanners, the screenshot is telling you its protected the PC from an external attack, scanning the files is not going to achieve anything at all whatsoever :D

    So save yourself some time and dont bother.

    triple redundant;

    "anything" stands alone

    "at all" stands alone

    "whatsoever" stands alone

    (I'm bored, and can't think of anything to do but pick on you)

    It's called Kaspersky Anti Virus. Just because you have not heard of it does not mean it's not a excellent product. KAV is one of the best AVs on the market in terms of detection and removal, that is statistical fact something you will see if you read the test result threads in this section. Perhaps next time you hear someone talking about KAV, you wont point them to AVG, one of the worst performers statistically (in no way AVG bashing, it is a excellent product).

    Cen0x, as you have already noticed this is a network attack. As the two posters above have said, it's purely informational. Relax, your fine :)

    I’m not sure about this as this is the message usually from Kaspersky firewall, never seen from the AV product which I have used now for about a year.

    Helkern attacks on my machine have been ignored by me as I get about ten a day but suspect they are false positives. They are detected by Kaspersky Anti Hacker firewall and not Kasperskey AV. All are always “successfully repulsed” so I would not worry about them.

    With the release of the latest KAV personal edition they included some network safety features which can be optionally installed [by default they are] when you update/install KAV. I'd assume they are taken originally from their Anti-Hacker software.

    I didn't need these extra features to begin with and when I did install them it killed my connection to the net and I never did find a work-around. I guess it just doesn't agree with my Intel PRO/100M NIC. I uninstalled KAV and re-installed without the network protection and everything went back to normal.

    In short, as has been stated already, KAV is an excellent AV and has been well-known for at least 6 years [that's when I first started using it].

    Please state the version of Kaspersky AV you are using and the product description.
    :) :)

    Perris lighten up, he's from England and they talk funny over there. (I've been shopping all day and am too tired to do anything worth while...)

    The network detection/protection stuff was added in KAV Personal 5.0.227 and was not there in the prior release (5.0.156).

    It would appear that there is an incompatibility between Sygate firewall and what KAV installs for the network protection. Just don't install the network protection aspect of KAV if you use Sygate.
