Kaspersky cache removal issue


Recommended Posts

Hi to all. I am using Kaspersky Internet Security trial version on XP Pro SP3 x86 OS. Is it okay, if i remove files from C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Kaspersky Lab\AVP9\Bases\Cache folder and from

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Kaspersky Lab\AVP9\Data\Updater\Temporary Files folder.

Please let me know. Thanks

My guess is it is safe to delete those files, since they are in folders named Cache and Temporary. However why would you want to remove them?
I wouldn't delete any file created by Kaspersky. They are very sophisticated in protecting their keys. There is a good good chance that after deleting that stuff Kaspersky stops signature updates with the err msg "Not all files were updated. File black.lst [=blacklisted keys] is missing or corrupted. Please run Updater to fix the problem." And there is only a slim chance that re-running the updater will fix the problem.

These "temp" folders are pretty big folders and tend to bloat backups. Nevertheless I always include them in my backups, otherwise Kaspersky may not make any more signature updates from a restored backup.
