Kaspersky 2016 was released on past July 31st and it came with many improvements. On this article I won’t cover what’s new or do any kind of product review. The big point of this article is to show you how to activate (re-activate) all 2016 Kaspersky suite products, including latest versions.
This article was reviewed on 4th August and support latest version 16.0.1.xxx
I think installation instructions are useless because it’s very simple, but if you need help leave comment.

I think this process is automatic with latest version.
When you open Kaspersky for the first time, it will notify that a licence is missing. If you are familiarized with Kaspersky products from the past, you already know this. You just have to click that link saying Activate Trail version of the application and that’s it 🙂
All mentioned products above come with 30 days trial licence. If you downloaded it from any other source there is a chance of a more extended trial period with 60-90 days. Anyway, when the licence expires, you won’t be protected anymore.
On the main window of Kaspersky, on the bottom, click on Settings. Go to Additional, Self-Defense and disable it. Just make sure to untick the box.
On system tray, right-click hover Kaspersky icon. A context menu will pop-up, click Exit.
If you have Windows 10 (or 8.x), please disable Windows Defender. Go to Settings < Update and Security < Windows Defender and disable Real-time protection. The instructions for Windows 8 might be slightly different. If you have any other anti-malware software, disable the real protection too OR add the patcher to exclusion list.
Now, download the Kaspersky Trial Reset. Just click on the button below.

The KTR (Kaspersky Trial Reset) it’s simple to use 🙂
Just click Reset activation. A message box will prompt, click Yes
The KTR will do its job, when done Kaspersky will launch automatically. On first launch will report a licence is missing. You just have to click the link Activate Trail version of the application
You are done 🙂
