Kaspersky Previous applications launch failed error

Asked By 25 points N/A Posted on -


I had installed the 30 days free trial version of Kaspersky Internet security 2014 on my pc a few days back. I had no issues with the downloading of the installer or the installation process. And everything was working fine till yesterday evening. However, today when I turned on my PC I get this message from Kaspersky stating that a previous application launch has failed? I tried clicking the ‘Send’ button in the error message but that gave me a message sending failed error. I have windows XP installed on my machine. I attempted deleting the temporary files using the ‘Run’ command and entering ’%TEMP%’ in the open field. This deleted the temporary files and I restarted the system. Still I get the same error message. What should I do? Please share your ideas on how to resolve this problem. Regards

Kaspersky Previous applications launch failed error


In certain cases it has been observed that on Windows 7 64-Bit versions, the installation of Internet Explorer 10 can cause Kaspersky Internet Security to crash and show “Previous application launch failed”. You should still able to run Kaspersky. If not try to downgrade to a lower version of IE (e.g. IE9)

Ensure that you download the latest path from Kaspersky server. Check if that solves the problem. Alternatively un-install the trial pack and re-install the same (It may not ask for the key), the problem should get resolved automatically.

Kaspersky Previous applications launch failed error


If you installed the free trial of Kaspersky Internet Security but it failed to launch now on startup, check that the 30-day trial period is not yet expired. The program will normally stop functioning once the trial period has been exhausted. But if you still have some remaining days left, try to uninstall and reinstall the program. Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install it.

Once installed, start Revo Uninstaller then select your Kaspersky Internet Security among the applications and click “Uninstall”. Follow the normal uninstall process. When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds. This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, close Revo Uninstaller then install Kaspersky back and see if it works.

Also, try downloading the latest free trial of Kaspersky Internet Security.
