Software companies, sometimes, offer their products with limited free experimental time. This means you can try their products
Typically, you can do it for some amount of days, like 30-60 days, while others allow you to run the program only a few number
of times, etc. It’s also common to see promo codes or licenses that allow you to extend the trial up to 90 days or maybe
Kaspersky allows you to use their products for 30 days, and after that, you must purchase the product.
The concept of Trial Resetting
As far as I know, there’s no way, yet, of fully activating Kaspersky products for a long period of time. Instead, it’s used
what we call of Trial Reset tools. The name speaks for itself. It consists of re-enabling the trial license, that’s
free and available for everyone.
In other words, the software developers allow you to use the 30-days trial only once per machine. If you attempt to re-install,
the program know you already used the trial and you will give you 0-days of usage and try to force you to purchase the program.
What trial reset tools does, is reset the counter.
Therefore, if you install a 30-day trial, whenever you use the tool, you will get back those 30 days. However, if you use
a 90-day trial, whenever you reset, you will get those 90-days license time again.
The negative side of this is requires manual work. I mean, every time your license is expiring, you must run the tool and
reset the counter. On the other hand, you literally have a life time product license because you can reset how many times

Now that you have Kaspersky installed and the tool on your local disk, let’s try it. Below are the instructions for it.
Open Kaspersky dashboard.
Go under Settings. Do it clicking on the gear icon button located on the window bottom.
Now on Settings view, click on Additional and then Self Defense. Uncheck the box by clicking on it.
Exit/Close Kaspersky. A simple way of doing so is expand the system tray, right-click on Kaspersky icon and then click Exit.
Run the KRT_220.127.116.11.exe (the trial reset tool) with administrator rights. Click on button Reset activation. A message box will pop up. Click Yes and that’s it.
Unless you changed the tool settings, Kaspersky should start and with Self Defense enabled. Anyway, always check it because it’s an important security feature.
Finally, you need to repeat the steps you did after installing Kaspersky for the first time: enable trial licensing
