  • In some cases, the avp.exe process is recognized by Microsoft Windows 7 as the game Aliens versus Predator disrupting stable application performance. In order to avoid such problems, KB974332 or KB2388210 updates should be installed on these operating systems before installing the application.

Installation methods:

Critical Fix 1 can be used for initial installation of the application, as well as for upgrading any previous versions of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations. Critical Fix 1 can be installed either locally or in a centralized manner (using Kaspersky Administration Kit).
