First Download the Kaspersky Updater Program from the official Kaspersky forums, you need to register there to get the program, else you can just google it, but its better to go with the reliable source to download the program. I am not giving the direct link to the program because, i am not sue whether it is legally right to give it directly. If every thing is fine i will post the download link as soon as possible.
