How to restore an object deleted or disinfected by the application

Kaspersky Lab recommends that you avoid restoring deleted and disinfected objects since they may pose a threat to your computer.

To restore a deleted or disinfected object, you can use the backup copy of it that was created by the application during scanning of the object.

Kaspersky Free does not disinfect Windows Store apps. If scanning results indicate that such an app is dangerous, it is deleted from your computer.

When a Windows Store app is deleted, Kaspersky Free does not create a backup copy of it. To restore such objects, you must use the recovery tools included with the operating system (for detailed information, see the documentation for the operating system that is installed on your computer) or update apps via the Windows Store.

To restore a file that has been deleted or disinfected by the application:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click the More Tools button in the lower part of the main window to open the Tools window.
  3. In the left part of the Tools window, click the Quarantine link to open the Quarantine window.
  4. In the Quarantine window that opens, select the required file from the list and click the Restore button.
