KAV 15.0.2.361 and Chrome Under Vista

Recommended Posts

My wife's computer is running Windows VISTA and KAV 15.0.2.361. (Yes, it is old and we will replace it.) The latest version of Internet Explorer (IE) that VISTA supports is IE9. Microsoft still provides security updates to IE9 for VISTA users and will do so until VISTA is no longer supported in April 2017.

 

Unfortunately some sites no longer work well with IE9. My interim solution is to download Chrome, which does run under VISTA, and use it. I went to the Kaspersky site to see if Chrome was supported by KAV and found this article.

http://support.kaspersky.com/us/12572#block2

 

At the end of the article it states, "Note: The plug-in functions only with Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2016 installed." But, the article is listed under Windows 10 and KAV 2016, not Windows VISTA. There does not seem to be an article like it under KAV 2015 and not flagged for Windows 10. Of course you need KAV 2016 to run under Windows 10.

 

My question: does KAV 2015 offer any protection to a user running Chrome under Windows VISTA? Is the KAV 2016 requirement necessitated by running under Windows 10 or by using Chrome?

 

I am reluctant to go to KAV 2016 until Kaspersky resolves the major problems they seem to be having with updates.

 

Sorry for the double post. It looked like this one did not "take" so I reposted. Moderator please delete one of the posts. Thanks. Brooks Gelfand

The Kaspersky Protection extension only works if a Kaspersky product is installed. And this particular version of the extension only works with version 2016. For version 2015, use this extension.

 

I don't think this is related to Windows 10. Maybe the article was mis-labeled.

Thank you very much, JanRei; I'll do that.
