Kaspersky Security Scan fails to start on windows 7

Recommended Posts

Hi folks and thanks for this forum,


When I install Kaspersky security scan from the 2 MB installer downloaded from the regular link (http://www.kaspersky.fr/acq/kss-thank-you?ICID=ACQ_KSS_product_page_FRA_KSS_TYFD) on my system (windows 7 x64, up to date), it proceeds and installs, but launching kss only creates two processes named "kss.exe", and no window shows up, even after I let it like this for ~10 min. Manually terminating the processes and retrying does not change anything.


The behavior was the same when I tried this back in July 2015. Today I uninstalled both KSS and the beta kaspersky software updater, and reinstalled from a freshly downloaded installer, and same result.


Any idea on what might cause this, and how to work around it?


Thank you very much!
