The “Extended event logging” checkbox shows additional information about performance of the service. (Attention! This option will highly increase the system load!)
The “Update virus bases while antivirus is shutted down” checkbox allows to run base updates even when “Kaspersky Antivirus” service is disabled. If the load on the system is significant, then the antivirus can only be updated during shutdown to reduce the load.
