    NoteThe ProgramLog.txt file is located in the Antigen installation folder.
This problem occurs because Antigen 9.0 does not handle the updated Kaspersky scan engine correctly.

Kaspersky has released an updated scan engine. This scan engine includes a .Lock file. Antigen cannot handle the management of any updates if any file name in the update begins with a period. In this scenario, when Antigen tries to delete older updates when newer updates are available, Antigen incorrectly determines that any file name that begins with a period is a directory. Therefore, Antigen does not delete the file. This behavior causes Antigen to leave older engine update folders present when these folders should be deleted. Therefore, Antigen does not update the Kaspersky scan engine.
