Whom should you follow Kaspersky or Microsoft?

Microsoft has resolved a known issue that prevents Kaspersky’s antivirus and other programs from opening once a user attempts to repair or upgrade them via Microsoft Installer; the cybersecurity firm advises its clients to avoid running Microsoft’s Windows updates.

Kaspersky, in a new support post, said that Microsoft’s recent set of upgrades for Windows 7 through Windows 11 have caused issues with its antivirus and endpoint security software, saying:

“After the installation of a Windows update Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows keeps functioning correctly and the security of the system remains intact. However, errors may occur at attempts to upgrade the application; install a private patch or change the scope of the application components.” 

Customers now have an option; they can either install Microsoft’s update, which includes a number of other changes, and risk Kaspersky Antivirus ceasing to function. On the other hand, they can avoid running Microsoft’s update and have Kaspersky’s products function as intended.
