Hi all,

background
Win7 Ult
Kaspersky AV 6.0, controlled by policy from internal server.

I have a user (director) who wishes to have more control of the install of KaspAV on his PC. All other users are controlled by policy from Kasp Admin Kit.

Is it possible to have a policy (or any other way) to allow the Director to be able to enable/disable parts of his install as he sees fit?

Thanks
Gareth

Would it be possible to install KaspAV while the director is present? This allows him to get the control he wants, but also save you the problem of having to think of a custom policy for him.

Another option would be to give him temporary Admin rights over his computer.

Installing Kasp when he is there is not a problem. My  perfect solution would be to have a profile which allows him to control, however from the admin kit I can only seem to tie things down. He wants to be able to turn settings on/off as he wishes?

he has admin rights.

With the administration kit, you could push a custom installation of KaspAV specifying what he wants and does not want for his computer.

You could also just take him out of the policy, and then give him the file to install himself. By doing that, no corrections will apply, but the admin kit will still be able to monitor and push AV updates to him.

I found this on the interwebs, it may be of some assistance: Kaspersky Administration Kit for Newbies

It may be a little old, but it should give the gist of what I am trying to explain. (I didn't choose the name and I am not implying that you're a "Newbie," it was just a good source of information)

Alternately, if you're looking for up to date documentation, product page has quite a few PDF's that can offer a lot of information on the subject.
