Bundling of products? Is 'Virus Removal Tool Free' and/or 'Anti-Ransomware Tool Free' included in any other products, such as maybe 'Security Cloud Free'??

I am looking at the list of free products here:



I have already installed 
Security Cloud – Free

I want to use:
1. Virus Removal Tool - Free
2. Anti-Ransomware Tool - Free

Are these already included in Security Cloud - Free? When I click ‘scan’ in Security Cloud - Free, does it do the same functionality as Virus Removal Tool - Free and Anti-Ransomware Tool - Free?

Or should I also install these products to receive their benefits?

Thanks : )

1. Virus removal tool not needed because you have installed ksc free

2. Anti ransom technology is included only in premium paid software so you can use this free tool.

Hello @Chendy

Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool (KVRT) does not provide real time protection, it’s a remediation tool. KVRT is a free tool that scans and disinfects Windows-based computers. The tool detects known types of malware as well as advertising software and applications that may be used for malicious purposes. For more information about such applications, see this article.

Kaspersky®️ Anti-Ransomware Free tool (KARTF) provides proven, powerful protection from ransomware like WannaCry, Petya, Bad Rabbit, Locky, TeslaCrypt, Rakhni, Rannoh and many others.

KARTF is not compatible with Kaspersky Security Cloud Free. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:
