How toI configure Kaspersky Internet Security to work with PhotoSync?

The following steps has to be taken to run PhotoSync Companion with Kaspersky Internet Security. This walkthrough was created on Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit with Kaspersky Internet Security 2012. Unfortunately you have to add some manually because Kaspersky does some additional scanning that conflicts with PhotoSync:

  1. Open the Kaspersky Internet Security software
  2. Select "Settings" and go to "Firewall" to show the firewall settings.

  3. Klick on the "Settings" button and look for TOUCHBYTE in the list of Trusted applications. PhotoSync should be listed in the TOUCHBYTE folder. The same should appear for APPLE with Bonjour Service listed as a trusted application. This should be made automatically by Kaspersky Internet Security, because both, Apple Bonjour Service and PhotoSync come with a trusted digital signature. If this isn't the case with your installation, please make sure, both, Bonjour Service and PhotoSync are added as trusted applications with full permission.

  4. Now select PhotoSync and press the "Edit" button. Then select the "Exclusions" tab. On the "Exclusions" tab mark all the checkboxes as checked. Apply your changes and close the Kaspersky Internet Security application.

With all these steps done, you should be able to use PhotoSync and PhotoSync Companion to move files from your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch to your Windows PC and vice versa.
