Kaspersky Antivirus 2016 Update Interval

I have looked everywhere in the software for a setting to regulate how often Kaspersky checks for updates. I haven't found any. Surely you can set this for hourly checks??? If you can where is it? Thanks.

Kaspersky update settings aren't terribly 'granular'; that is, you can't specifically schedule the updater on an hourly basis.

It's not ideal, but you could set Updates to be performed Manually, then set an hourly reminder with a third-party utility of some kind.

My experience has been that KAV 2016 updates every several hours or so each day.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus features the following modes for performing update tasks:


  • Automatically. Kaspersky Anti-Virus checks the update source for updates at specified intervals. Scanning frequency can be increased during anti-virus outbreaks and decreased when there are none. Having discovered new updates, the program downloads and installs them on the computer.
  • By schedule (time interval changes depending on settings). Updates will run automatically according to the schedule created.
  • Manually. If you select this option, you will run Kaspersky Anti-Virus updates on your own.

If an update was skipped for any reason (for example, the computer was not on at that time), you can configure the task to start automatically as soon as it becomes possible. To do this, select the Run skipped tasks check box in the lower part of the window.


To configure the update task:


  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click Settings in the upper right part of the main application window.
  3. On the upper left part of the window, select Update.
  4. Click Run mode.
  5. Inn the Update window in the Run mode tab, select the update task startup mode in the Schedule section.
    • Automatically
    • Manually
    • By schedule. If the By schedule option is selected, create the schedule.

  6. Click OK.
  7. Click OK in the Settings window.
  8. Close the main application window.

Version 2016 doesn't have any of those click by click locations you have listed in your step by step..You must be using earlier version with different interface?????
