Important! Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 does not ensure full protection of your computer right after it is installed. For solid protection of your device, please run an update as soon as Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 is installed and activated.

To update the application, you need an active license. To activate a license, you need an activation code that can be purchased in Kaspersky Lab Online Store. To renew a license that has expired or is about to expire, use License Renewal & Upgrade Center.

If you experience any problems updating the application, see the article How to diagnose update issues in Kaspersky Internet Security 2016.

If you want to upgrade to a newer version, but the automatic upgrade does not work, download the latest version from Kaspersky Lab website and install it manually.
