To make use of the features of the application and its additional services, you must activate it.

If you did not activate the application during installation, you can do so later. You will be reminded about the need to activate the application by Kaspersky Anti-Virus messages that appear in the taskbar notification area.

To activate Kaspersky Anti-Virus:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. In the lower part of the main application window, click the Enter activation code link. The Activation window opens.
  3. In the Activation window, enter the activation code in the entry field and click the Activate button.

    An application activation request is made.

  4. Enter the user's registration data.

    Depending on the terms of use, the application can prompt you to log in to My Kaspersky. If you are not a registered user, complete the registration form to gain access to additional features.

    Registered users can perform the following actions:

    • Contact Technical Support and the Virus Lab
    • Manage activation codes
    • Receive information about new applications and special offers from Kaspersky

    This step is not available in all versions of Kaspersky Anti-Virus.

  5. Click the Done button in the Activation window to complete the registration procedure.
