Kaspersky and detected threats

  exdragon 16:30 15 Apr 2009

Hi, I've just bought a new laptop and have installed KIS 2009. A full scan has thrown up 5 threats which range from Moderately Dangerous (a pre-installed Bookworm game) to Very dangerous (includes 2 Adobe AIR and Macromedia Flash) to Highly Dangerous (Adobe Reader 9)

Do I panic yet, delete the programmes or just delete the items from the Detected Threats list please?

Are these under vulnerabilities if yes follow the link and it will tel you to download and install the latest versions,

I always get a warning about Adobe

Thanks - yes, they are. I'll give it a go.

If you know all these programs are safe go to Kaspersky Settings> Threats and Exclusions> Trusted Zone> and Add them to Trusted Applications

Thank you - I can't see why Adobe should be highly dangerous!

Unfortunately - it is used by a lot of new threats and need patching regularly.
