I thought some components would be renamed. I remember that vulnerability scan's name was changed to something else. It's still the same with the current release. What happened?

Also, I don't see any major change in this version compared to the 2017 version. @harlan4096, is there any groundbreaking feature or anything worth mentioning in the 2018 version?
That new "Vulnerability Scanning" module We talked about some months ago is only available in "Kaspersky Cloud" (KAAS features) version, in KTS/KAV/KIS2018 still the standard "Vulnerability Scanning" as in previous versions...

About new features of K2018 I already upload some time ago a screen-shots gallery with new features in K2018:

Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

What's new

But some new features are only in KCloud version...

Does Kaspersky update to the new version by itself or do you have to download the installer and upgrade manually?
Personally i always proceed as follows :
> Download new Kaspersky version > Reboot
> Exit Kaspersky > Uninstall Kaspersky (keep license information during uninstall) > reboot
> Install new Kaspersky version > Update Databases > Reboot

with every major release this is the best procedure to install a software. even windows should clean install every major releases.

The scan speed of KIS 2018 is much more faster than KIS 2017 and this is a very welcome improvement. It feels somehow lighter

What do you mean commercial Keys?
Beacuse I do not have a licence for Kaspersky :(
it means its a normal installer which can work with normal keys(licenses) you buy or for trial use. if you are a normal user which does not download many apps or open unknown emails(flash drives...) even windows defender is good. i change antivirus because of their technology and sophistication(as a developer and IT geek view :) ) normal user is protected even with windows defender, you have to go so deep in internet to see even one sample that we use here to test av's.

I do not like Windows Defender
I think advanced users Should use Kaspersky or some other advanced AV
As Windows defender Is too bad for advanced users
There Is no settings there is nothing
Its Install and forget Its for novice user :)
I want right now to Install the KIS2018 But how to change the GUI To English?
And how to get the 90 days key?
