The application unpacks the necessary files into a temporary directory at /tmp/<random_character_sequence>. When the application is closed, the temporary directory is deleted. If you terminate the process of the application, the temporary directory is deleted when the computer is restarted. You can specify a different directory for saving temporary files on the command line (--target <directory_path>).

The application displays the End User License Agreement, the Privacy Policy, and the KSN Statement. Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) is an infrastructure of cloud services providing access to the online Kaspersky Knowledge Base that contains information about the reputation of files, web resources, and software. KSN participants receive information from Kaspersky and send Kaspersky information about objects detected on the user’s computer to be analyzed additionally by Kaspersky analysts and to be included in the reputation and statistical databases.

Carefully read the terms and conditions of the agreements before you accept them.

After completing the initialization, the application displays the main window of Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool. The application may then request proxy server credentials to connect to the internet. Internet access is required to connect to the KSN and update anti-virus databases.

The application creates a directory in which it places its working files:

  • /var/opt/KVRT2024_Data if the application was run by the superuser (root).
  • /home/<user_name>/KVRT2024_Data if the application was run by an ordinary user.

If Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool fails to run, you can scan your computer using the Kaspersky Rescue DiskKaspersky Rescue Disk is an application that allows scanning your computer without booting an operating system. To use it, you must create a bootable USB drive or CD/DVD disk and boot your computer from the external media. Kaspersky Rescue Disk can be managed in the same way as Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool.
