Step 3. Select actions to fix damage
All damage found at the previous step is grouped based on the type of danger that it poses. For each damage
group, Kaspersky Lab recommends a set of actions to repair the damage. There are three groups:
Strongly recommended actions, which eliminate problems that pose a serious security threat. You are
advised to repair all damage in this group.
Recommended actions are aimed at repairing damage that may pose a threat. You are also advised to
repair damage in this group.
Additional actions repair system damage that is not dangerous now, but may pose a threat to the
computer's security in the future.
To view damage within a group, click the icon to the left of the group name.
To get the Wizard to fix a specific type of damage, select the check box to the left of the damage description. By
default, the Wizard fixes damage belonging to the groups of recommended and strongly recommended actions.
If you do not want to fix a specific type of damage, clear the check box next to it.
It is strongly recommended that you not clear the check boxes selected by default, as doing so will leave your
computer vulnerable to threats.
After you define the set of actions for the Wizard to perform, click the Next button.
