If the installation or removal of a Kaspersky Lab home product terminates with an error, please get trace files of the process to help technical support diagnose the issue.

Installation and removal trace files are created automatically in Kaspersky Lab products. By default, the files are saved to the %temp% folder (usually C:\Windows\Temp or C:\Documents and Settings\<profile name>\LocalSettings\Temp) with the names of the following type:

  • kl-install-yyyy-mm-dd-hh-mm-ss.log
  • kl-setup-yyyy-mm-dd-hh-mm-ss.log
