Error while launching the System Preparation Tool
There are several ways to deal with this annoying issue, but the result is always the same – you have to disable the application self-defense before doing sysprep.
You can do it directly in registry by changing values of registry keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREKasperskyLabprotectedAVP80settingsEnableSelfProtection to 0.
Or you can do it via Kaspersky settings. Once you open settings, click the Options item, uncheck Enable Self-Defense and click OK.
