    KIS and KAV 2010 versions are in the release directories for several languages at Kaspersky's FTP (ftp.avp.ru) site. Nothing official on the web site, however.

    Well, legally speaking, nothing is official until it has been posted on their main webpage.

    They're coming very soon though! :)

    We have KIS2009 licenses running; whether we can download Kis2010 , and upgrade freely it? We mean whether kis2009 license can go with kis2010?
    One thing we do not like kis/kav one thing of removing windows server 2003+ support.

    RELEASE NOTES

    Kaspersky Internet Security 2010

    Build 9.0.0.459; (25.05.2009)

    Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 provides comprehensive protection to Windows computers users against all types of information threats.

    MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

    The minimum system requirements for Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 are:

    1. General requirements
    * 300 MB free hard drive space
    * CD-ROM drive (for installing Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 from the installation CD)
    * Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher (for updating application's databases and software modules via the Internet)
    * Microsoft Windows Installer 2.0
    2. Operating systems
    * Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition (Service Pack 2), Microsoft Windows XP Professional (Service Pack 2), Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, with:
    o Intel Pentium 300 MHz processor or higher (or a compatible equivalent)
    o 256 MB free RAM
    * Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic, Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, Microsoft Windows Vista Business, Microsoft Windows Vista Enterprise, Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate, with:
    o Intel Pentium 800 MHz 32-bit (x86) / 64-bit (x64) processor or higher (or a compatible equivalent)
    o 512 MB free RAM
    * Microsoft Windows 7 is not supported yet. Maintenance Pack for Kaspersky Internet Security with support of this operating system will be prepared immediately after its release.

    INSTALLATION

    To install the application, please run the installation file and follow the setup wizard's instructions.

    1. During installation, Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 detects resource-hungry applications which if used simultaneously with the application would greatly slow the user's computer, perhaps to the point of complete inoperability. The installation procedure allows these applications to be removed at this time.
    2. The application can be installed without previously removing any of the following applications:
    * Kaspersky Anti-Virus 7.0
    * Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0
    * Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009
    * Kaspersky Internet Security 2009


    WHAT'S NEW IN KASPERSKY INTERNET SECURITY 2010
    * Improved HIPS (Host-based Intrusion Prevention System) technology assigns a danger rating to unknown programs. The Application Control component uses HIPS to define rules for new and already known applications, which may restrict their access to the file and operating systems.
    * Innovative Sandbox technology has been implemented, which uses virtualization to create a secure environment for program execution. New software can be tested in this environment, which isolates the host operating system from all changes. There is no limit to the number of Internet browsers and other applications which can run simultaneously in a sandbox.
    * Increased use of Kaspersky Security Network considerably decreases the threat response time, due to information received from other users. The service aims to minimize the time necessary to detect and neutralize new types of threats. When a user starts a program, the service checks it against white lists and Urgent Detection System lists on Kaspersky Lab's servers.
    * The protection of personal user data has been extended and enhanced. For instance, Kaspersky Internet Security automatically prevents inadvertent users from accessing known phishing web sites, and blocks keylogger programs, which are designed to steal passwords and access codes.
    * The new Script Emulator analyzes the behavior of scripts, to assess their potential harmfulness. It simulates the operation of the Java Script and Visual Basic Script engines, which are supported by default in Microsoft Internet Explorer and are built in to Microsoft Windows.
    * The new IM Anti-Virus component ensures the safe operation of most instant messaging applications. The component scans messages for the presence of malicious objects.
    * Improvements to the Virtual keyboard component provide safer entry of personal information, by protecting data from being intercepted by spyware and preventing screenshot capture.
    * Significant improvements to the Anti-Spam component now provide two methods for detecting spam: exact and expert. Exact methods apply strict filtering criteria to a message, which determine unambiguously whether or not a message is spam. Expert methods investigate email messages that have passed strict filtering criteria. As such messages cannot be unambiguously considered spam, the component calculates the probability that they are spam.
    * Components of Kaspersky Internet Security can be temporarily disabled, to improve computer performance. This can be useful during the use of resource-hungry applications such as network games.
    * Monitoring access to phishing websites and protection against phishing attacks are performed by scanning links in messages and on web pages, and also by using the database of phishing addresses when an attempt to access websites is detected. You can check whether a web address is included in the phishing database, using the Web Anti-Virus, IM Anti-Virus or Anti-Spam component.
    * Improvements have been made to all the application's existing components, including the Firewall, Parental Control, and Anti-Spam components, and particularly the Heuristic analyzer.
    * The anti-virus kernel of Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 has been significantly improved, to provide more efficient malware detection. The application shows higher performance on Windows Vista operating systems, as compared to previous versions of Kaspersky Internet Security.
    * Kaspersky Internet Security includes the URL scanning module managed by Web Anti-Virus. This module scans links on the web page, comparing the website addresses against its database of suspicious and phishing websites. This module is provided for Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers as a plug-in.
    * The update procedure has been improved. Kaspersky Internet Security's databases are now updated not only according to their schedule, but also when new security threats appear.
    * The creation of Rescue Disks has been improved. The service should be used when the infection reaches a level at which the computer cannot be disinfected using either anti-virus applications, or malware removal utilities such as Kaspersky AVPTool. The improved Rescue Disks provide more efficient disinfection because malware programs do not gain control when the operating system is being loaded.

    New in the application interface:

    * The application interface has been completely redesigned, to make Kaspersky Internet Security significantly more accessible to first-time users.
    * Kaspersky Internet Security features an automatic mode in which the application automatically makes optimal decisions, so avoiding excessive requests to the user.

    I installed it and used my old licence but it refuse to recognize it. Is there a place to "convert" it to KIS 2010?

    Contact below email addresses. I think it's the only way to have your license 'converted' (if yours still applies).

    No conversion need. As long as your subcription/license is valid at the time KIS 2010 is officially released you can (i) just install KIS 2010 over KIS 2009 or (ii) uninstalll KIS 2009 & install KIS 2010; in either case the activation stage of the installation process will check with the activation server for a valid license and if you have one you are in/done/activated.

    :D

    Do you mean Kis2009 users wait for the official release of Kis2010. The current un-official builds of KIs2010 is not ready cooked for upgrade from Kis2009 unless kis2009 users contact them.

    The technical release version can and does upgrade over current KIS2009. However, the general advice is to wait for the product to be available officially on their website.

    If you wish to use the TR version (build 9.0.0.459) you can do so on the understanding there's no official support for it at this time.

    the one i use is the one in my sig which is the latest.

    Maybe, I took the time to think logically about your comments, take the time to understand your passion for the product, and then just heard you.;)

    .451 = RC (Release Candidate); .451 + bugfixes = .459

    .459 = TR (Technical Release) ~= RTM = code frozen & any additional bugfixes delivered via hotfix.

    Well, I can certify that my license run until October 2010 and is not recognised as being valid by KIS 2010. I'll wait for the official release and try then, and if it still doesn't work, I'll write to them I guess. Still strange :doubt:

    I can't remember exactly as it was a couple of weeks ago I tried it, but it was something to do with the key being for the wrong product. I'm using KIS now and I definitly downloaded and installed the new KIS.
