Hello @Mrwhite,

a new GSI log would be helpful.
Maybe there are some remnants left that are still interfering.

Find here KL’s suggestions to start off with:


Personally I would use Revo Uninstaller( free) as it first creates a system restore point just in case, then it invokes Bit-defender's uninstaller. after that it gives you clean-up options to remove leftovers (if you’re comfortable with that - choose the moderate or safe removal settings.)

Reboot and try your KIS installation again.

Again, doing another GSI log may pick up other incompatibilities if you’re still having problems.

@Mrwhite, i would not recommend using Revo Uninstaller to remove any antivirus software. Antivirus vendors usually have their own utilities to remove their products.

@Mrwhite In addition to andrew75 , Revo Uninstaller will not find an uninstalled application.



i used bitedeneder once again, just in case


and there is my new gsi: https://www.getsysteminfo.com/report/29a580c8018dbe3ba0e50c46e4380d22

@Mrwhite, I asked to attach them separately. We will not see them in this report.

the content of install log folder:https://www.getsysteminfo.com/report/c7e4180bffad6f4bb63d6c1b40a668c3


the IncompatibleSoftware.rtf: https://www.getsysteminfo.com/report/1006b7bc43f881017a21a55e2a9c4675


i hope i did it correctly

@andrew75 :

After doing a system restore point, Revo invokes the target product’s own uninstaller; It’s the followup cleaning process that one has to be careful and confident about.

In any case, this suggestion doesn’t apply as bitdefender was already “uninstalled”, and the free version of Revo can’t help further.

In addition:

Hi @Mrwhite ,

it is possible that your computer is compromised.
Please have a look at the hosts file. There are some suspicious entries.
Please delete the file or restore it to its original state.
Then try the installation again.

i did restore the hosts file to default


when i entred the hosts folder it was set to fitgirl website


and there is a file called hosts.rollback that is set to fitgirl website too



i did it all and i still cant open the installer


this is just, annoying

i searched the google a bit


and I saw a virus called Trojan.FakeAV.LVT 

this trojan stops the virus installation or it will uninstall it


I tested so many anti virus to clear my pc out

and I found a website and showed me a list that says : the anti viruses that can be stoped by Trojan.FakeAV.LVT   and I actually tested most of this anti viruses and yes I cant install them


here’s the list

Agava Firewall Avast Microsoft Security Essentials
Kaspersky Internet Security 7 Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 Kaspersky Internet Security 2010
Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 Kaspersky Anti-virus 7 Kaspersky Anti-virus 2009
