I apologize if this is a really stupid question but ...

I want to buy KIS 2019 from Amazon.co.uk (they're not selling KIS 2020 yet) but I noticed that the Kaspersky website only offers you KIS 2020.

Will the KIS 2019 activation code work with KIS 2020 on a clean install, as I have 2016 installed so (I guess) I'd have to uninstall that first and remove that license.

Or do I have to install KIS 2019 offline /en-gb/kis/19.0.0.1088/, add the 2019 activation code, then upgrade internally to 2020?

The Kaspersky website says that a KIS 2019 activation code will only work with KIS 19, 18 & 17, but I keep reading that you get a free upgrade from the current product to the latest. Is that when KIS 2019 is already installed?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, months ago I installed Kaspersky Free Antivirus version 2019, now the version is 19.0.0.1088(h).
Does not Kaspersky updates itself to the new 2020 version?
What can I do to upgrade to 2020 version?
Thanks.

Jesus, installed latest Kaspersky Cloud Free and it BSOD'ed my system after installation, after uninstallation of VPN, lockedup during uninstall, what the hell. I had to forcibly remove it with kavremove. Oh and it trashed my SSD so chkdsk activated and fixed some stuff.

Did you take care to uninstall another Security Suite before installing Kaspersky ?
If not there must be probably something wrong with your OS or hardware.

Do you use system restore or any image backup that uses it? If so, you might want to check if KAV remover broke system restore.

Oh for god sake, is Kaspersky still screwing System Restore? I'm now getting error when opening System Restore panel. I was fixing this ages ago, but can't remember if I fixed it or not...

It sounds like you already know what to do. But just in case, here's the blog that helped me.
