About threats and exclusions

Kaspersky Rescue Disk protects you against various types of malware. Regardless of the settings selected, the application will always scan and disinfect viruses, Trojans and hacker utilities. These programs can significantly damage your computer. To make your computer more secure, you can expand the list of threats that the program will detect by enabling monitors for various potentially dangerous programs.

In the Threats and exclusions section of the Kaspersky Rescue Disk’s settings window, you can perform the following actions:

  • Select categories of threats to detect.
  • Create a trusted zone for the application.

    Trusted zone is a list of objects created by the user which Kaspersky Rescue Disk does not monitor. In other words, it is a set of exclusions from the protection scope.

    The user manually creates a trusted zone based on the features of the objects he or she works with. You might need to create such an exclusion list if, for example, Kaspersky Rescue Disk blocks access to an object but you are sure that the object is absolutely safe.
