The new function implemented by Kaspersky antivirus called the self defense is used to prevent unauthorized access to the Anti-Virus files.This self defense security option has now been extended with protection against auto clickers beginning from version 18.104.22.1688.
The main problem with the Kaspersky self defense is that it denies remote access to the Anti-Virus interface via programs like Radmin,PCAnywhere, WinVNC, UltraVNC because these software’s have mechanism similar to auto-clickers.So you will have to disable self defense option in Kaspersky Antivirus or Kaspersky Internet Security in order to use these remote access softwares.
