After you install Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2018, we recommend that you update antivirus databases and run a full scan. Without regular updates of the antivirus databases, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2018 will be unable to protect you against latest threats.

Update requires an active license. You can buy the license (activation code) in the online store. To renew an expired license at a discount, visit License Renewal & Upgrade Center.

If you encounter any errors during databases updates, perform the actions described in the article How to diagnose update issues in Kaspersky Lab products.

By default, the application downloads updates automatically every two hours. Only the updates for enabled application components are downloaded. You can adjust updates download schedule in the application settings.
