The collected or purchased Kaspersky software you are trying to install has been integrated with Windows 8 Consumer Preview. So it may not be compatible with Windows 7.

Although the same software was compatible with Windows 7 earlier now an update version may not support the systems as it requires hundreds of systems for moving faster which are not available on Windows 7.

So it is not the problem with the software and not the problem with your PC. The problem is with your configuration. Collect an update version of Kaspersky software compatible with your Windows 7 and then install it.

I hope you understand it.

Hi Aabel,

Please at first read your Kaspersky manual book and then understand properly what it wants to run on your PC. Please check is your OS perfect to install Kaspersky or how many bits your pc's has? Install that version which will match your configuration. Otherwise, contact your nearby Kaspersky customer care. Thanks.

Anyone have a solution?

After reading the original problem above, I was surprised about the time it consumed for the installation to complete. It took 20 minutes to reach 90% of progress and for the error to appear.

It is quite unusual for me for an error to appear quite so long considering that the installation already took 20 minutes and still didn’t finish. Most antivirus applications I know can be installed in a very short time.

Like for example the one I’m using, the NIS or the Norton Internet Security, it usually installs in less than a minute or 2 on my computer.

If you noticed that the installation already consumed a great amount of time, there should be something wrong happening. The problem right now, since you are experiencing the same problem as above, you did not mention anything about your computer like the operating system you are using and so on.

And since you prefer installing Kaspersky Internet Security over other antivirus or internet security applications, might as well try the latest version, Kaspersky Internet Security 2013. You can download it from Kaspersky Lab | Products and Services | For Home | Kaspersky Internet Security.

Check the page for the link on the trial version if you don’t want to purchase it immediately and want to try it first. To avoid any problems in the installation, read the system requirements just below the page to see if your operating system is included in the supported platforms.

If you are using later edition of Microsoft Windows, I don’t think you will have a problem installing it. It is compatible from Windows XP up to Windows 8. Just check if it is the appropriate edition and Service Pack.
