I need to talk to a human and/or create a support ticket. I don't have a link for this. I'm not sure if this product is supported at all (I bought Kaspersky Business Total Security).

At this time the company I am doing business with is unable to get their VPN working on my system. They indicate Kaspersky is to blame.

The VPN is FortiClient.

Anyway, I just needs some help with the product I purchased (Kaspersky Total Security) - to find out if the problem really is Kaspersky or not.

Total Security brings its own vpn client.
Please uninstall 'Kaspersky Secure Connection' first. This does not affect the protection provided by KTS.
Can the connection now be established?

As far as I know I bought virus protection and NOTHING else. I already have and use PIA for my VPN. Is there a way to tell if I accidentally bought something that I never wanted (such as Kaspersky's VPN)?
