Checks during application installation

Kaspersky Anti-Virus performs several checks during installation. These checks may detect the following problems:

    • The amount of free disk space is enough for installation
    • The user installing the application has administrator privileges

You are advised to manually remove any applications that Kaspersky Anti-Virus cannot remove automatically. When removing incompatible applications, you will need to restart your operating system, after which installation of Kaspersky Anti-Virus continues automatically.
  • Presence of malicious programs on the computer. If any malicious programs that interfere with installation of anti-virus software are detected on the computer, the Setup Wizard prompts you to download Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool, a special tool designed to neutralize infections.
