COLLECTING INFORMATION FOR TECHNICAL SUPPORT
After you notify Technical Support specialists of a problem, they may ask you to create a report that contains information
about your operating system and send it to Technical Support. Technical Support specialists may also ask you to create
a trace file. The trace file allows tracing the process of performing application commands step by step and determining
the stage of application operation at which an error occurs.
After Technical Support specialists analyze the data that you have sent, they can create an AVZ script and send it to you.
Running AVZ scripts allows analyzing active processes for malicious code, scanning the system for malicious code,
disinfecting / deleting infected files, and creating reports on results of system scans.
To provide better support on issues related to functioning of the application, Technical Support specialists may ask you
to temporarily change application settings for debugging purposes while diagnostics are ongoing. To do so, you may
need to perform the following actions:
Activate collection of extended diagnostic information.
Configure individual components of the application by changing special settings that are not accessible through
the standard user interface.
Reconfigure storage and sending of collected diagnostic information.
Set up interception of network traffic and saving of network traffic to a file.
Technical Support specialists will give you all information necessary for performing these actions (step-by-step
instructions, settings to be changed, scripts, additional command line features, debugging modules, special utilities, etc.)
and will inform you of what data will be collected for debugging purposes. After the extended diagnostic information is
collected, it is saved on the user's computer. The collected data is not sent automatically to Kaspersky Lab.
