Here are some instructions to help you install and activate your new software.

Step 1: Download and run installer

After downloading the installer from the website, open the file when prompted by your browser. If you don’t receive a prompt, open your Downloads folder and double-click the installation file. A security warning may appear. If it does, click ‘Run’ to proceed.

If you see a warning like this, don't worry. It's just Windows’ way of checking that you intend to install a program. Click ‘Run’.

Step 2: Download latest version

When you start the installation, the first thing you'll see is a screen welcoming you to Kaspersky Anti-Virus. Before you click on 'Continue', make sure the box entitled 'Download the new version during installation' is ticked.

This tells the installer to check the Kaspersky Lab servers to see if there's a newer edition of the software then the one you have. If there is, it will automatically download and install it for you, so you have the very latest protection.

Once that's done, just click ‘Continue’.

Make sure that you check the tickbox on this screen and then click 'Continue' to start your installation.

Step 3: Agree and Install

At the next screen, click the check box if you wish to participate in the Kaspersky Security Network (KSN). By anonymously pooling data on malware as it appears, this gives you and other users early warning of new Internet threats.*

Once you've made sure that the KSN tickbox is selected, click on the link to the End User License Agreement. After you have read the terms, click ‘Install’. If a User Account Control warning appears, click ‘Yes’. Your software will begin installing. You'll need to be patient as this may take a little while.

If a User Account Control warning like this pops up, it's just Windows checking to make sure you intend to install the software. Click 'Yes' to proceed.

Step 4: Start Kaspersky Anti-Virus

At the end of the installation process, click 'Finish and restart’. Your trial version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus will launch once your computer has rebooted.

That’s it! Your 30 day trial version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus is now active. In order to continue using your software after the trial period expires, you will need to purchase an activation code.
