Before you start troubleshooting, make sure that your system date and time is correct as Kaspersky depends on your system date and time to download virus database. With default settings, Kaspersky products regularly connect to the server and download available updates automatically.
But if you have changed this default setting, you need to set back it to download updates automatically by following given below instructions: Step 1: Launch Kaspersky.
Ccleaner is quite safe to use and will back up any changes it makes.
Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was using Kaspersky Internet Security on two of my desktop computers only without a single issue, and about ten days ago, I uninstalled the Norton Antivirus from my HP notebook and installed Kaspersky Internet Security as I had a spare license key with me.
After installing the KIS, I activated the product by entering the license key and then manually updated the database to the latest available version.
And after that, I didn’t bother to open Kaspersky as I was under the impression that it would automatically download the database and requires no manual intervention but I was wrong.
About 5 days ago, I found that Kaspersky isn’t updating the virus database automatically, and decided to find a fix for this issue.
