In order to activate Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011 for Mac you need the activation code. Activation code is a unique charset of 4 sections. Each section comprises 5 symbols, and the common number of symbols equals to 20 (e.g. XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX).

Before you update or reinstall the OS, make sure that:

  • you have the activation code in print on the first page of user's manual (if you purchased a box version).
  • the activation code is saved on another disc (flash-drive, floppy) which will not be formatted when reinstalling the operating system (if you purchased the product in the E-Store).
  • product settings have been exported, and the configuration file is saved on another disc (flash-drive, floppy) which will not be formatted when reinstalling the operating system.

After the OS reinstallation, you are recommended to perform the following steps:

  1. download the latest version of the product distributive which you have purchased earlier from the Kaspersky Lab’s official web-site: http://www.kaspersky.com/productupdates
  2. run the downloaded file
  3. when installing the product use the same activation code which you have saved on another disc
  4. after you have installed the product and rebooted the OS, import the product settings from the configuration file you have created earlier.
