How to install the application

Kaspersky Internet Security 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.

The number and sequence of steps in the Setup Wizard depend on the region where you install the application. If you install the application in the European Union, the Setup Wizard offers you to accept additional agreements about processing your personal data and to confirm that you are at least 16 years old.

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 Internet Security on your computer,

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

The application is then installed with the help of a standard Setup Wizard.

In some regions, the installation CD does not include the application installation package. The installation CD contains only the autorun file. When this file is executed, the application download window opens.

How to install the application using the autorun file

To install Kaspersky Internet Security, 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.

When you run audio and video recording or playback applications for the first time since installation of Kaspersky Internet Security, audio and video playback or recording may be interrupted. This is required to enable the functionality that controls access by applications to sound recording devices. The system service that controls audio hardware is restarted when Kaspersky Internet Security is run for the first time.

Kaspersky Internet Security 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 Internet Security. If the use of VPN is prohibited in your country, Kaspersky Secure Connection is not installed.
