I thought I was just installing more updates from Kaspersky Internet Security when this program broke down my computer and turned off my antivirus protection.
I had to read through the terms and conditions and I guess I did not read them quite well enough.
It slowed down my computer and made it completely dis-functional.
When I turned it on in safe mode and ran a spyware scan on Malwarebytes, it showed about 23 objects infecting my p.c. when previously there were none. It provided me with a long list of malicious objects to delete.
I attempted to re-install my Kaspersky protection which had about 111 more days left on it.
It would not let me re-install it and claimed there was a problem with the license.
I felt stupid giving my permission for that new program to get on my computer. I was mislead because the dialogue box was identical to the one that's supposed to belong to Kaspersky. Unless I'm mistaken, I think this was a virus masquerading as a new version of Kaspersky Virus protection. I tried to get support from Kaspersky and got no help from them.
When my attempts to re-install Kaspersky did not help, I installed free Norton protection for 30 days.
I could not find any reports about anything like this on the web.
