Computer has all our personal information in it. While some data is not that important, some are very confidential.
This makes security play a vital role in every computer.
There are a lot of security application available on the Internet with every one claiming to be the best. But trust me, I never found an application better than Kaspersky.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 is the latest in the line of security suites from Kaspersky Labs.
It protects your laptop or desktop from all latest viruses and worms. It keeps track of all the latest emerging threats on the Internet by consistently updating its database every few minutes.
New viruses and worms are released every minute on the Internet. Some reports suggest that numerous treacherous viruses, Trojans and spywares are created every minute.
Thus, updating your database every now and then is very important.
If you are some one whose laptop or desktop is not connected to the Internet, then there are chances that your Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 may not detect the latest viruses or threats which could leave your PC at stake.
Kaspersky 2012 Database Updater
In this post we come up with a solution to the problem of updating databases offline. That solution is a simple tool that updates your Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 database offline – it’s called Kaspersky 2012 Database Updater.
This is a special tool that Kaspersky has introduced in order keep the databases updated.
This tool should be run manually on another computer which is connected to the Internet connection where it gets the necessary database updates and later put into that computer which is not connected to Internet.
How it works (in brief) ?
When the first time this tool is launched, it will get all the necessary databases from Kaspersky server and put it into a special folder.
This special folder resides in the folder with the update utility. (this is done on a computer that is connected to the Internet.)
Then, copy this folder using a pen drive to the computer which has Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 and is not connected to the Internet.
Once copied to the desired computer, configure Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 to get updates from this special folder.
On configuring and running update, the Kaspersky updates its database with latest signatures.
Next time when you again need to update KIS 2012, follow the same procedure but you need not configure once again as it would be already done.
