Applies to:
  • Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations, version 6.0.4.x
  • Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 SOS, version 6.0.4.x
  • Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Servers, version 6.0.4.x
  • InformationKaspersky Anti-Virus version 6.0.4.x does not support updating from zip archives!

    We recommend to use one of the following update methods:

    • Use the Update utility which downloads databases and modules for Kaspersky Lab software and stores them in a special folder.

      It can be used to download updates for selected Kaspersky Lab applications installed in your network / home PC. This utility can download databases and patches into a local folder, network drive connected as a disk drive to the given computer file system, or a flash drive.

    • Use Kaspersky Anti-Virus version 6.0.4.x option Copy updates to folder.

      If not all the networked hosts have Internet connection, you can use Kaspersky Anti-Virus version 6.0.4.x to update them from a folder:

      • open Kaspersky Anti-Virus, go to Settings and select Update in the left panel;
      • click Configure in the section Update settings;
      • Check the box Copy updates to folder and specify a local or networked shared folder;
      • Run the update task after applying the change;
      • In the result, databases will be downloaded into the specified shared folder;
      • Update the hosts not having Internet connection from that shared folder.

    Updating all networked hosts from a single shared folder allows reducing Internet traffic.
