Standard installation procedure

Kaspersky Anti-Virus will be installed to your computer in interactive mode using the Setup Wizard.

The Wizard consists of a series of pages (steps), which you can navigate through by clicking the Back and Next buttons. To close the Wizard after it finishes, click the Done button. To stop the Wizard's activity at any step of installation, close the Wizard window.

If the application will be used to protect more than one computer (with the maximum number of computers defined by the terms of the End User License Agreement), the installation procedure will be identical on all computers.

To install Kaspersky Anti-Virus on your computer,

On the installation CD, run the file with the .exe extension.

To install Kaspersky Anti-Virus using the autorun file:

  1. Click the Download and Install button in the application download window.

    By clicking the Download and Install button, you send information about the version of your operating system to Kaspersky Lab.

To install Kaspersky Anti-Virus, you can also download an installation package from the Internet. In this case, the Setup Wizard displays several additional installation steps for some localization languages.

Along with the application, plug-ins for browsers are installed to ensure safe Internet browsing.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus is installed together with the Kaspersky Secure Connection application intended for establishing a secure connection via Virtual Private Network (VPN). You can remove Kaspersky Secure Connection separately from Kaspersky Anti-Virus. If the use of VPN is prohibited in your country, Kaspersky Secure Connection is not installed.
