Windows 7: Microsoft Sidewinder X4 - Instant Viewer Too Fast, Makes me Furious

Yep to be honest too (wish you had a name) I tried Pure once and for me too convoluted - my brother in the UK also had it on his and I think it dislikes "playing" with other programs more than the straight Internet security suite (KISS) .

There is a function that allows you to disable it for the time period you set instead of leaving yourself completely open See this How to enable/disable self-defense of Kaspersky PURE 3.0

A bit OT (off topic) I just bought the Android version today for my Samsung S5 and am itching to try it (cheap too) plus I found a 3 machine 2 year licence for $89 so work that one out for a daily price LOL!! I'll save you the maths - $0.04 a day

You were right! It is a conflict with windows and kaspersky.
I turned kaspersky off then on again, and instant viewer worked. Works fine without protection, but when I turn on kaspersky, about 15s latter it doesn't work anymore.
It's not solved but now at least I know the cause of it.
Thank you!

Ok too that means it is just matter of finding in the Kaspersky a setting that will allow the thing to work I will have a scratch around and see what I can find out. There must be one because my Sandy Bridge has the x4 and I have no problems and it is a pity am away from home at the moment or ai could have a quick look.
It is running 2014 internet security - I know that is not the Kaspersky software you are running. So I will have a scratch around - if necessary would you consider the internet security instead of Pure?, because I think I mentioned it before I tried Pure once but found it quite complicated.

If you do you can only buy the 2014 at the moment but what I did was to download the 2015 uninstall the 14 and install and activate the 15 with the same activation code used for the 14. I do this each time a new version comes out as a matter of fact
The GUI on the 15 is the best one I have seen yet and I have been using KISS since the 2010 version. Now if it is expense that is a problem then it may not be an option but if it were me the $50 (out here) for the KISS would be worth it eve for getting rid of your problem.

Well the features that I don't use are the ones the other version don't have, I might change it, but the for this keyboard function, I don't know if I should.
So far not Microsoft or Kaspersky helped me with this issue.
I looked over the settings on Pure, but haven't found anything yet.
I'm using the old alt+tab and flip.

Well for my money too I would just go with the ordinary internet security it at least has the safe money feature which is probably one of the best features of it. It is as good as they come in my view and I even run aid for real time MBAM with it, plus I keep SuperAntiSpyware and ADWCleaner as on call scanners that I run from time to time. Right now without looking I cannot remember the ins and outs of Pure so I cannot comment on why you should keep it.
Now I know it is all money but again is the Pure worth the grief with the X4. Now I know the X4 works well with KISS on my Sandy Bridge although it is running 8.1 but was on 7. In fact on my Ivy Bridge with the X6 it takes longer to fire up than the X4.
A bit of a quandary for you I suppose but I might still have a dig around and go into the Kaspersky forum (the international one not the local Australian one) and ask in there.
Hang in there for a little longer mate you are being very patient I have to say with what is probably a simple fix.

Ok mate an update I have posted a query on the Kaspersky forum re the problem and have asked what if any settings should be tinkered with to stop this conflict with the Pure. Now I would not hold your breath too long as they can be quite long winded as I think I mentioned before.
