Updates, More fresh Keys here
A week ago Kino, a member of the forum from China shared a tip on how to obtain a free 6 months Kaspersky Antivirus 2009 key. Honestly I didn’t know how I missed that thread but I got to know about it when someone posted a comment on this blog. The deal is Kaspersky is giving out 50000 license key everyday and you’ll have to activate the license before 1st of April 2009.
The steps to get the activation code is very simple. Just enter your email address in the form, click submit and the code will be instantly delivered to your email. Problem is the code can only be used on Chinese version of Kaspersky AntiVirus 2009 (kav18.104.22.1686sch.exe or KAV22.214.171.1246sch.zip). If you try to activate the code on the English version of KAV 2009, you’ll get an error saying “Activation code is not compatible with this application. It is impossible to activate Kaspersky Anti-Virus using the activation code for another application. Please, check your product.”
You can of course download the Chinese language of Kaspersky and hit Shift + F12 to change the interface to English (which will be reverted back to Chinese after reboot) but today I will show you how to get the genuine kaspersky key, and how easy it is to do the “impossible” by activating any language of KAV 2009 using the activation code that is meant for Chinese version.
Follow the steps below to get your free 6 months Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009 activation code:
1. Go to http://li.kaba365.com/
2. Enter your email at the form and click the button.
3. Type the exact verification code that you see and click the button on the bottom left.
4. Click Cancel if you receive a popup that looks like the image below.
5. Check your email address that you’ve entered in step 2. You should receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ????????????2009?????. Note down the 25 digit Kaspersky activation code.
If you haven’t install Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009, you download it from here. After installation, make sure you select “Activate later” when asked to activate the application. Finish up the configuration and restart your computer.

Well, it is amazing that Kaspersky is giving out 50,000 activation codes everyday but unfortunately those keys are “trial” keys and not commercial. There is one drawback on trial key which is IF you’ve previously activated the 30 days trial or other promotional trial license, you won’t be able to use this license. Kaspersky application only allows you to activate the trial license ONCE. Uninstalling and reinstalling won’t allow you to activate trial license more than once unless you know how to do kaspersky trial reset by deleting some registry keys which won’t be discussed here.
