  1. The problem is that Google and Mozilla want to take over our "protection". Frankly, I prefer KIS to take care of my anti phishing/anti malware protection, and I've disabled those functions in both browsers.
  2. Normally it's three versions forward, so technically you can upgrade to the 2018 version. You can download from here, then use the 2015 key. https://support.kaspersky.com/kis2018 Whether you can upgrade from that one to the 2019 version, I'm not sure. Actually, I'm pretty sure you can't. Hopefully one of the Mods will chime in.
  3. When 3rd party AV's are uninstalled, Windows Firewall and Defender will take over. On restart after installation, Kaspersky will disable them and take over protection, so I don't think you need to be concerned about not being protected during the restart period.
  4. Click on Firewall in Protection settings, and you will see options for setting various rules.
  5. Hi, DIVERSE. Over installing an older version with a newer one is fine. Kaspersky overwrites the previous version. Just download the new version, preferably from your My Kaspersky account which will have your license details and start the install. The chances of being infected during this VERY short period, are minimal. You are prompted to restart after the installation, so manually run an update to bring yourself up to date. This advice is from Support Article. Post-installation recommendations Update the Kaspersky Internet Security anti-virus databases. To learn how to update the anti-virus databases, see this article. Check the protection status in the application main window. To learn how to open the main application window, see this article. Run a full scan of the computer. To learn how to run a full scan, see this article.
  6. Save yourself some time, and pick Kaspersky. https://www.av-test.org/en/antivirus/home-windows/ Flawless protection, and you get get for a good price from reputable online retailers. You will usually be sent an activation key by email.
  7. Equally, in recent times I've done the over install on a couple of occasions, with no discernible issues ! Having said that, if any arise, there's always the uninstall/reinstall fall back option !
  8. This is the answer I got from Support. When installing a newer version over the previous one, the older version shall be removed during the installation process. So presumably he means that the older version IS removed during an over install upgrade.
  9. Reading this link, it seems Support prefer a clean uninstall/reinstall.
  10. Hi, dh. Yeah, I'm thinking that K simply overwrites the previous version rather than making it a clean install in those circumstances, but it would be nice to hear definitively from Kaspersky. An uninstall/reinstall while ideal, is reasonably time consuming even with settings being retained, but I guess a CLEAN fresh install is the best way to go given that that seems to be the general recommendation for an OS install. All opinions welcome !
  11. I updated to KIS 2019 from 2018, via an update reminder in the My Kaspersky portal. I downloaded from the link there, and installed 2019. My question is, in a case like this does Kaspersky uninstall the previous version and then install 2019, or does it merely overwrite 2018 ? Thanks in advance.
  12. Hi, Daniel. It seems there's no way to stop the restart, other than to disable the Software Updater and just check your software independently for updates just like we've always done !
  13. KIS 2019 is being progressively released to each region. I'm in Australia, and it has only just recently become available from the My Kaspersky portal here.
  14. If you are using the Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Internet Explorer browsers, Protected Browser is opened in a new window. Microsoft Edge browser automatically switches to Protected Browser mode when you visit websites of banks and payment systems. Go to Settings and make sure Edge is the default, as well.
