How to install the application
October 3, 2023
The application is installed to your computer in interactive mode using the Setup 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.
To install the application on your computer,
- If you are using an installation disk, insert the disk into the disk drive and follow the instructions on your screen.
- If you have downloaded the application from the Internet, launch it. The application is then installed using the standard Setup Wizard. In this case, the Wizard displays several additional installation steps for some localization languages.
You can also install the application from the command prompt.
The Setup Wizard goes through the following steps:
- Starting installation
During this step, the Wizard prompts you to install the application.
When you install Kaspersky Plus or Kaspersky Premium, you can additionally install the following applications:
- Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection, which enables Kaspersky VPN functionality using Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology.
Kaspersky VPN functionality is not available in some regions.
- Kaspersky Password Manager for protecting passwords.
These applications are available only on Kaspersky Plus and Kaspersky Premium plans. If you want to use these applications, you can download and install them as separate applications. You can remove Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection or Kaspersky Password Manager without removing Kaspersky application.
Depending on the installation type and the localization language, during this step the Wizard may prompt you to view the End User License Agreement concluded between you and Kaspersky, and ask whether you want to participate in Kaspersky Security Network.
- Installing the application
Installation of the application can take some time. Wait for it to finish. Upon installation completion, the Setup Wizard automatically proceeds to the next step.
- Completing the installation
During this step, the Wizard informs you of the completion of application installation.
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.
If you downloaded the application from your My Kaspersky account, after installation, the application is automatically activated with the subscription from your account.
