Kaspersky antivirus has been set up to my keyboard language settings, this is not the language I work with, I just happen to have this keyboard because I live abroad,

I followed the instructions in https://support.kaspersky.com/common/settings/4523 and Shift+12 changes the language interface to English but everytime I reboot the computer Kaspersky antivirus returns to the other language.

Is there a way to have Kaspersky Free antivirus permanently in English without changing my keyboard settings? What if I use a VPN to download the program from a UK IP, will this work?

Thank you for your help

Hi Hadrian, welcome to the new forum.



To permanently change to English, you have to install the English version.

Using a VPN connection could work.

You can also check which version you get offered here:

Also, the purpose of the Shift+12 switch from various localizations to English:

This is not to enable English users to download any localization and use English.

Instead, this feature was designed to enable various tech support technicians to view screenshots in English, when many different localizations are being used and screenshots need to be sent to Tech Support technicians. 🙂

I downloaded the antivirus from the link Shulte posted and it worked, without having to change IP or anything. It is now solved, thank you.
