When installing Parallels Internet Security from Parallels Desktop 5 you may see the following message:

“Attention! Some incompatible software is installed on your computer. These applications cannot be used together with Kaspersky Internet Security 2009.
In order to proceed with the installation, remove these applications.”

Resolution

Please use the following instructions from Kaspersky:

If you have Windows XP, go to Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs. Click on the program to remove, and then click on the Remove button to the right.

If the normal removal process still leaves behind leftovers of an incompatible program, running the removal tool for that program should resolve the issue.

Save the Norton Removal Tool to your Desktop prior to running it. If you have Windows Vista, please right-click on the Norton Removal Tool file and choose Run as administrator. You may get a one-time pop-up from Norton after rebooting. This is normal, just close the window.

If you had another anti-virus or security program previously:

Even after running the removal tool, the install process still says I have incompatible software:

If you are sure that the product being detected by Kaspersky is not on the computer, you can skip the check for incompatible software during installation:
Skip Product Check for Kaspersky 2010.
Skip Product Check for Kaspersky 2009 and Kaspersky Security for Ultra Portables.


If you experience an error message saying "You must restart your computer before proceeding with the installation,"

There may be traces of an older Kaspersky Lab product in your registry. Please try these steps: http://www.kaspersky.com/support/kolt?eid=207694096
