How to Upgrade to Kaspersky 2012 Product Line for Free

Kaspersky had released their 2012 product line and a good news to share to existing 2011 users is that you can now upgrade your product to the latest Kaspersky 2012 for FREE. This is not any hacking or cracking your existing product. Instead it is just a simple installer that make it work. What you need to do is to get the latest version and then perform an installation on your computer to get the upgrade. Again I would like to stress that it is not any rocket science and below is a simple example on how to upgrade your product for free.

Steps to Upgrade to Kaspersky 2012


    1. Download the latest version from the official site. They have three popular product and below is the direct link to get to the download page.
    2. Each landing page has the same layout and what you need to do now is click on the FREE TRIAL button.
    3. That will lead you to another page and you are going to provide a valid email address to them in order to get your software downloaded. You will not be spammed by Kaspersky because all their emails are valuable to you. Even if you don’t like their mails, you can unsubscribe the newsletter easily.
    4. Wait. You download should take not longer than 3o minutes if you have a decent internet connection.
    5. You don’t need to uninstall your existing Kaspersky in order to get the new one up and running. What you need to do now is just run the installer. By doing so, you only need to reboot your PC once. If your computer is not running any antivirus, you can successfully installed the latest Kaspersky version without even restarting the computer.
    6. Once the installer successfully executed, follow the steps to install the antivirus. Basically all the questions are straight forward and you don’t need to do any special configuration as far as it is concerned.
    7. Restart your computer if you have existing Kaspersky installed. There will be a note telling you to restart.
    8. Kaspersky 2012 successfully installed. All you need to do is to ensure you have the latest virus definition by running the update manually (Although it is not necessary).

Conclusion to Kaspersky 2012 Upgrading

Congratulations! You had successfully upgrade your Kaspersky to the latest version if you follow the steps carefully. The 2012 version has a lot of benefit compared to 2011 although the 2011 is one of the best antivirus around. In the latest version, it had upgraded the protection to cloud-based technology, new features like file advisor, sandbox and also improving the existing features especially the parental control. Lastly if you are a home user and looking for the best protection with a reasonable price, I can recommend the Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 and you can visit that page for the detailed features.
