STEP 4. KASPERSKY SECURITY NETWORK STATEMENT
During this step, the Setup Wizard invites you to participate in Kaspersky Security Network. Participation in the program
involves sending information about new threats detected on your computer, running applications, and downloaded
signed applications, as well as information about your operating system, to Kaspersky Lab. No personal data received
from you is collected, processed, or stored.
Review the Kaspersky Security Network Statement. If you accept all of its terms, in the Wizard window, click the Accept
If you do not want to participate in Kaspersky Security Network, click the Decline button.
After you accept or decline participation in Kaspersky Security Network, application installation continues.
STEP 5. INSTALLATION
Some versions of Kaspersky Internet Security are distributed by subscription, and a password received from the service
provider must be entered before installation.
After you enter the password, application installation starts.
Installation of the application can take some time. Wait for it to finish.
When installation is complete, the Setup Wizard automatically proceeds to the next step.
Kaspersky Internet Security performs several checks during installation. These checks may detect the following
Non-compliance of the operating system with the software requirements. During installation the Wizard checks
the following conditions:
Whether the operating system and Service Pack meet the software requirements
Whether all of the required applications are available
Whether the amount of free disk space is enough for installation
Whether the user installing the application has administrator privileges
If any of the above-listed requirements is not met, a corresponding notification is displayed.
Presence of incompatible applications on the computer. If any incompatible applications are detected, they are
displayed in a list on the screen, and you will be prompted to remove them. You are advised to manually
remove any applications that Kaspersky Internet Security cannot remove automatically. When removing
incompatible applications, you will need to restart your operating system, after which installation of Kaspersky
Internet Security 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.
If you agree to install the utility, the Setup Wizard downloads it from the Kaspersky Lab servers, after which
installation of the utility starts automatically. If the Wizard cannot download the utility, you are prompted to
download it on your own by clicking the link provided.
