Looking ahead. When KIS 2020 is released in a month or two, will it offer to install over 2019 or will I have to uninstall 2019 first?

Which method will be better and trouble-free?

Hello AvalonP,



Kaspersky has been allowing installation on top for a long time.

However, as something can always go wrong, we recommend uninstalling the existing product. It only takes five minutes longer, but it is the safest way.

I installed KIS 2020 on top of KIS 2019 on 3 laptops running Windows 10 Pro 1903. All I can say is WOW! Installation was flawless. Performance is top notch. Great job Kaspersky!!

@AvalonP , moreover, in the confirmation of the words @Schulte , in the article of the knowledge base https://support.kaspersky.com/common/start/13514 in the third paragraph, it is recommended to delete it first
