Kaspersky’s anti-virus software solutions help to keep your computer free of infection and provide you with a safe Web browsing environment. You cannot change the language in the English, Japanese, Chinese or Vietnamese versions of the software, but all other languages feature a “quick-switch” option that flips the software into English until you choose to switch back. This option requires the use of a hotkey and is not represented in the software’s menus.

Step 1

Open Kaspersky Anti-Virus and allow the software to fully load.

Step 2

Hold the “Shift” key on your keyboard and press “F12.” This will switch Kaspersky into English.

Step 3

Press “Shift-F5” to switch back to the original language.
