Kaspersky AV 6 & CHKDSK

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
A few weeks ago I installed KAV 6, and recently noticed problems when trying
to run the Windows XP diskchecking uttility (chkdsk).

It seems to hang at "phase 2" for what seems like a minute, then finally
starts to proceed, though often ending before it completes the disk check,
and resulting in an error message basically saying it could not finish the
job.

Are their any know issues concerning KAV & chkdsk? For the record, I
recently had to uninstall Spy Sweeper after "upgrading" to version 5.0...

Try running chkdsk with KAV disabled

I'll try that for a while. How about this poractive protection? Could that
cause problems?

If you have left it at the default settings KAV will continue workig
in the background causing the issues you describe, it is always best
to disable KAV first to eliminte ant issues as you are experiencing.
If you decide to use proactive protection I would suggest unticking
'application integrity control' as it has been known to suck your
resources dry..a fix will soon be forthcoming in the next update later
this year apparently. All the others I have enabled with no
performance hits so far.

Lukas,

There have been several KL forum threads about chkdsk and KIS/KAV 6.

IIRC, most people have been able to resolve the issue, one way or another.

Thanks! I'll take a look.

I did do a web search, but I didn't come up with much, so asking it in this
forum seemed like a good idea. :-)
