How to remove Kaspersky passwords

If you forgets your password that you set for your Kaspersky product it can prevent you from changing settings in the program. You can remove the password by following these instructions:

Select your version for instructions:

  1. Boot into Safe Mode.
  2. Press the Windows Key + R
    Type regedit and press ENTER.
  3. 32 Bit Users: Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\KasperskyLab\protected\AVP8\settings
    64 Bit users: Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KasperskyLab\protected\AVP8\settings
  4. Double click on EnablePswrdProtect and change the value to 0.
  5. Double click on OPEP and make it a blank value.
  6. Restart your computer.
    (In this example it says AVP8. On your computer it may be AVP9 or another number)

    • I haven’t dealt with this issue in a while but my guess would be that it’s an encrypted version of the password that you set.
