I am having update issues in Kaspersky internet security 2012. My update starts and it quickly reaches to 15%, download size=142kb but then it stops at 15% for half an hour and finally the messages arrives that network connection has timed out. This is only happening with Kaspersky product. My Internet connection is working absolutely fine. Other downloads are done properly. I am using Virgin vFlash wireless connection device for internet. I bought my product from Nehru Place New Delhi, India on September 3, 2011.

Software/Hardware used:
OS- windows vista

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In your case, there might be some problems with the security of Kaspersky antivirus software program in accessing your computer Internet connection. There might be a firewall set to block the connection of Kaspersky to your computer, try to add it to the exception of your firewall settings and try if it will work.

    Yeah I would have to agree with Jinteik.. Kaspersky have quite a big massive Download updates and I havent come across problems updating via LAN... It seems as though the update is too big for your WIRELESS..(depending what speed it holds) try LAN, see whats the difference..

    When I used Kaspersky a few years ago (using Vipre now at a new job now so have not used it in a while) but they had outstanding support, and rarely did I need to go beyond the online chat to ge the issue resolved.

    Am having the same issue here in the UK. Exact same stopping point too! Have checked firewall and is the Kaspersky firewall which is switched on. Cannot change this over to windows firewall. Also, quite a windows type user so help has to be simple! Whilst it says I have an active internet connection, neither IE nor Firefox will connect to ANY website either. Am using friend's laptop to even find this discussion! Please help!

    Jinteik advise is good, at least u can try and see the results, by the way u can also try to ping the Kaspersky site (50.58.197.30) with -t option and see whether there is any time out. also note the ttl and ms.

    Same problem at 15% in the UK. Disabled firewall and update is now at 55% after about 5 mins. I don't have time to check the firewall issues now but at least it's updating :)

    Maybe you should try to re-install software, it might have some corrupted data,or you can change Kaspersky download server to your local, it might help.
