  1. You can’t say it Bullshit coz Kaspersky clearly mentioned that the free license of KIS 2010 is meant only for Windows 7 hosts and attendees.
    The drama is that Indian hosts are unable to get it too.

  2. Kaspersky has clarified that this offer is only for US Hosts and Attendees and they have no hand in this. MS is responsible for it since this offer was included with US Party Packs.
