Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 is no longer supported.

Upgrade the application to the latest version:

  1. Make sure you have a valid activation code. The code consists of 20 Latin letters of the following format:
    ХХХХХ-ХХХХХ-ХХХХХ-ХХХХХ. You may need to enter it once again for activating the new version of Kaspersky Internet Security.
    If you are not sure where to find the activation code, see this article for instructions.
  2. If you don’t have an activation code, click Licensing in the lower right corner of the Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 window and take a screenshot of the Licensing window with the license number. Technical support engineers will restore your activation code using this number.
    If you are not sure how to take a screenshot, see this article.  
  3. Open the Kaspersky Lab website and download the latest version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus to your computer.   
  4. Uninstall Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012. Make sure the checkbox for License information is selected at the Saving objects step.
