I was trying to install an older USB joystick software on my PC. The Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 quarantined the INSTALL.EXE file. So the joystick did not install. What setting do I change in the AV to resolve this

The easiest way is to disconnect from the Internet > Close Kaspersky > Install the the software> Restart Kaspersky. If you get an alert on the .exe change it's restriction level.

Geez, why didn't I think of that? Of course, just disable the AV software during installation.

Sometimes just disabling Kaspersky doesn't work due to background processes. If I have a problem I just exit the entire application and save myself the headache of a second try.
