Hi Marc, Additional to "Friend's" post: Before you format, export Kaspersky application settings as follows:
  1. Open [Settings, little cog/wheel], lower left hand corner of Kaspersky application window.
  2. Select [Manage Settings]
  3. Select [Export Settings]
  4. This action will create a "Save As" popup window, to save a .cfg file: name the file, e.g. KIS-b4-PC-format & save this file to any of the following: USB drive, Cloud storage, DVD. Any storage resource you have available that will not be impacted by the reformat.
  5. Also, sign in to your (MyK account) https://my.kaspersky.com/ account.
  6. Go to: [Licenses] https://my.kaspersky.com/MyLicenses#/
  7. Select [Details, little cog/wheel]
  8. In the lower part of the [License/s][Details] screen, you'll see:
Activation code S5xxx-xxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx License key 5xxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx Version full Activation date Feb xx 1919, 1:39:03 AM (UTC)
  1. Copy this information (select all, copy), paste to a text/notepad file & save file to same resource where you saved the Kaspersky application .cfg file.
  2. If you use [Kaspersky Password Manager], perform a [Backup], export the Password Manager backup file to the same resource where you saved the Kaspersky application .cfg file.
  3. Perform an export of all Kaspersky Password Manger entries, save the exported file to same resource where you saved the Kaspersky application .cfg file.
  4. Perform PC reformat.
  5. After reformat is complete & you reinstall Kaspersky application, you may need to reconnect the Kaspersky application to your MyK account: reference: https://help.kaspersky.com/KIS/2019/en-US/85580.htm
