I dont use KAV, but I'd say thats your problem. Looks like KAV cant load its config. Unfortunately, thats not something ASL would have anything to do with, so not much we can do to help. I'd check that config and contact KAspersky about this error.
Hi Scott, Im running a VPS server and no kernel enhancements are in place. ( Not sure if thats related to what your saying about the kernel blocking )
Yep, thats what Scott meant. Since you are on a VPS, you aren't using the ASL kernel, therefore you can completely rule out ASL. Its not the cause.
edit ---- > I have submitted the false positives via the asl system. How does it work, do I get notified of an update or does it silently do its thing ?
Those error messahes look like something is wrong with the mail handler, definitely ask Kaspersky and your mail vendor what those messages mean too, and let us know what they tell you. I think your config is just missing (or maybe KAV got upgraded and its in a different place?)
