Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 RELEASED!

A MUST HAVE if you are installing Windows 10

Personally I would install 2016 (however if you install 2015 make sure it has patch C)
Please uninstall Kaspersky completely and REBOOT before you upgrade to Windows 10 and install 2016 fresh when Windows 10 is running smoothly with all upgrades etc. Most should by now be able to download 2016 from the official page on the global site: http://www.kaspersky.com/product-updates, if you still don’t see 2016 and cannot wait then the direct links to the US site is below:
2016 Downloads: Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Total Security 2015 Downloads with patch C included: Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Kaspersky Internet Security

Good practice advice:

Disable Windows defender (Use option #1) and make sure all Windows updates are installed and a reboot done before you proceed to install Kaspersky.

If you haven’t installed Windows 10 yet: Uninstall the Kaspersky version you have installed now and reboot before you proceed to install Windows 10. when that is installed and fully updated, do another reboot before you proceed to install Kaspersky 2016, update it and reboot.

If you have installed Windows 10 already: …..and perhaps have some issues: Uninstall the Kaspersky version you have installed now and reboot, then install Kaspersky 2016, update it and reboot.

If you cannot uninstall an older version of Kaspersky: Run this tool as the last resort.

I started on computers back in the days of the Sinclair ZX81 and Spectrum, back when people were coming to terms with how great their new digital watch was. Even though I worked in DIY Shops, Fancy Goods, the building trade, DJ’ing etc, my main interest and passion was always in coding, graphics and games. I decided to take the plunge into computer shops in the mid 90’s and in 2003 set up my own computer business.
I have a simple work ethic which is I prefer to make a little money often, rather than charging a fortune and losing customers. This has proven to work for me and my customers. In all the years I have traded I have never advertised and yet each week, I get new customers through recommendations – there is no higher praise :)

What are your thoughts?
