Hundreds of new viruses and their modifications appear every day. To ensure your computer's safety, update the anti-virus databases of Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 regularly. It is also recommended that you weekly perform a Full Scan using the updated databases.

To download an anti-virus database update from Kaspersky Lab servers, you will need an Internet connection. By default, Internet connection settings are defined automatically. However, if you are using a proxy server to access the Internet, we recommend that you configure proxy server settings in advance.

Please note. To update the product, you need a valid Kaspersky Internet Security trial or premium license. To buy one, use our Online Store.

You may also want to visit our License Renewal & Upgrade Center if you have a commercial (not a trial or promo) license that has expired or is about to expire.

If you see error messages when updating the product, see the article on troubleshooting update errors.
