Nope it doesn't.
However I have fixed the problem.
At first I tried to kill defender and then reinstall KIS over top of itself. That didn't work
Then I uninstalled KIS then did a reinstall keeping the activation features.
It found that windows firewall was also up and running and killed that during the installation.
I have no clue why my system thought that KIS had downward migrated into a 16 bit program nor how defender and windows firewall were activated. I am guessing some hot shot moron at Microcrash pulled an "I know better" and managed to override KIS, crippling it and putting their Microcrash garbage security software in the fore n in one of the updates they regularly issue.
Other than that, I am out of guesses.
