Hello,
my main bowser is firefox and the kaspersky protection icon is grey
Both firefox and kaspersky are up on date It says that “all protection components are running” but my main bowser isn’t protected. I’m having this problem since late May/early June
does anyone know how to fix it?

@Arwa these components (Anti-Banner and Private Browsing) are not in Kaspersky Anti-Virus, so they cannot be enabled. Reinstall antivirus as follows: Uninstall the older version with kavremvr utility: https://support.kaspersky.com/common/uninstall/1464#block2

Afterwards, download the latest Kaspersky:

- navigate to: https://www.kaspersky.com/downloads/thank-you/antivirus

- click the red "DOWNLOAD NOW" button;

- wait for the download to complete.



Once the file is downloaded, please run it to install the program and activate it with your 20-character activation code. https://support.kaspersky.com/14980#block1

Hello @FLOOD

This should not matter because the 2017 version is still supported, but why dont you try upgrading to KAV 2019? The license key for 2017 is valid for 2019 version.

@Arwa this is the normal operation of the extension in Kaspersky Anti-Virus, do not worry.
The extension will be green if Anti-Banner and Private Browsing components are enabled.

The KAV Kaspersky protection ext is GREY, however, clicking it opens Kaspersky OnScreen KeyBoard

@Arwa Also , and in addition to Friend and FLOOD , KIS 2019 is indeed your best option.

Hello @Arwa,
(me personally) I've always used KTS, has all the bells & whistles for very little extra $/yr.
  • 2020 has been commercially released, for all regions. https://support.kaspersky.com/#s_tab2.
Best regards!

@Arwa I suggest you look for Kaspersky perhaps at your local stores, or (depending on where you live) on kaspersky.co.uk where the key works for the entire EU and Falkland Islands, usa.kaspersky.com for USA and Canada...

Global website kaspersky.com is the most expensive way.

For example, on usa.kaspersky.com you can get Internet Security 3 devices for as low as $40.

I live in Croatia and bought KTS via the UK website for 35 pounds 🙂

All, if $ are a concern, be alert to the fact many non-authorised sites/merchants sell a licence key multiple times, at some stage this may cause problems, if at that point technical support is required, it's possible the purchased "cheap" product will be deemed invalid = no support = $ down the drain.
