How to install the application

Kaspersky is installed to your computer in interactive mode using the Setup and Removal Wizard.

The Wizard consists of a series of windows (steps). The number and sequence of steps in the Wizard depend on the region where you install the application. In some regions, the Wizard prompts you to accept additional agreements regarding how your personal data is processed. 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.

    All necessary application components will be automatically started immediately after installation is complete.

    In some cases, you may need to restart your operating system to complete installation.

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, 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 is run for the first time.

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

To continue using the application, you must connect to My Kaspersky and complete the activation process; for details, see the following sections:
