How to find the serial number/registration of Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 in my machine?


I have Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 installed on my machine right now. I plan to re-install the OS. How do I get the serial number from the program, so that I can enter it after re-installing the OS.

Under "Manage License", I'm able to see 0BA4-000845-0BFCAxxx which is not the serial number that I entered.

Is there any other way apart from calling their support team? It takes quite a while to reach them.

Any comments would be highly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance!

Did you try calling them? It's a toll free number. I'd try that first and get their advice.

In general, license keys are not easy to retrieve once applications are installed.

@rindi: nice program, it couldn't get my Comodo license, does it get your AV license?
I use a free AV tool (Panda Cloud AV) which is very good and doesn't need a product key...

SIW has up to now found all product keys of the programs I had to install with such keys. As most of my software is free I don't have too many keys to keep track of. Maybe you also looked under the wrong section. If it isn't listed under "Licenses", it could be listed under "Installed Programs". The key could be listed there too.
