Be careful with Kaspersky Anti-Virus!

Yesterday I got a phone call from my client, he told that a new version, I sent recently, does not work and produce a lot of errors. Weird! I changed only a query in last version, and did not even touch VBA code. So I start to ask him what he did before <g>, with his PC, and he told me, that he just installed (or upgraded) Kaspersky Anti-Virus. Yes, this is it! Kaspersky Anti-Virus blocks some VBA code in order to prevent macro viruses run. So this was a source of the problem. Fortunately – there is an option, where you can switch off VBA blocking.

First time I noticed this long ago, in Access 2000 time. I have installed my application on a new PC with Office 2000 – and it did not work. I started to debug, and found that some function simply not working. It took me some time to find out that is was Kaspersky Anti-Virus – I had reregistered VBA libraries, reinstalled Office. I think default behavior should be – than Anti-Virus gives user a message that it blocks VBA, when application starts.

I discovered the same problem when I wanted to used the wizard to create a form.

Where is the option, where you can switch off VBA blocking in the KasperSky Antivirus?

Can any one help?

Kaspersky is not the best solution if you're to remove malware because its also use a lot of PC resources, if you're looking for some other solution how to solve problems with the malware I can recommend you this great website you can find a lot of useful guide there, and I'm sure you'll find some better solution for you then use Kaspersky anti virus software.
