Kaspersky Anti-Virus is installed to your computer in interactive mode using the Setup and Removal Wizard.

The Wizard consists of a series of pages (steps), which you can navigate through by clicking the Back and Next buttons. To close the Wizard after it finishes, click the Done button. To stop the Wizard's activity at any step of installation, close the Wizard window.

The number and sequence of steps in the Setup Wizard depend on the region where you install the application. If you install the application in the European Union, the United Kingdom, the U.S. or Brazil, the wizard will prompt you to accept additional agreements regarding how your personal data is processed.

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 Kaspersky Anti-Virus on your computer,

On the installation CD, run the file with the .exe extension.

The application is then installed using the standard Setup and Removal Wizard.

In some regions, the installation CD does not include the application installation package. The installation CD contains only the autorun file. When this file is executed, the application download window opens.

How to install the application using the autorun file

To install Kaspersky Anti-Virus, you can also download an installation package from the Internet. In this case, the Wizard displays several additional installation steps for some localization languages.

Along with the application, plug-ins for browsers are installed to ensure safe Internet browsing.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus is installed together with the Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection application intended for establishing a secure connection via Virtual Private Network (VPN). You can remove Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection separately from Kaspersky Anti-Virus. If the use of VPN is prohibited in your country, Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection is not installed.
