        Unfortunately this fine program has now resorted to becoming Nagware.  Everytime I boot up, I will get a popup within a few minutes telling me that sites are trying to collect data on me.  What sites do not do this?  Their only solution to fix this is to “upgrade your package”.  There is NO close button for this popup, you need to open Task Manager and click end task and then wait for it to time out and then click end now.  I have turned off all notifications and still get this.

        A closer look at this popup I posted shows it s not quite the same warning I described earlier, but still I have notifications turned off.

        I decided to put Task Manager in my startup group so I do not have to go through the key  strokes every time.

        Did you turn off the notifications in the Kaspersky interface?

        Settings—notifications, there are several boxes that control notifications.

        I already mentioned that I had turned off all notifications.  Thanks for all of the reply’s.  I searched the internet for this and found it to have occurred to many other people.  One of the suggestions was to reinstall the program.  As this program forced itself to convert from Kaspersky Free Antivirus which I had, to Kaspersky Security Cloud.  I decided to do the uninstall  and reinstall.  I then turned off all notifications.  This seems to have fixed the issue so far.  It still would have been proper of Kaspersky to include a close button.  I feel that having notifications turned off is a less desirable solution.
