If you are not sure which applications must be closed, reboot the computer. Changes made to the system will be automatically rolled back.’ Let us see how to fix this, and install KIS or KAV again on your computer.
Fixing Kaspersky’s ‘Failed to install the Application’ Error
If you’ve previously installed and using a Kaspersky product, it is better to remove it fully from your computer even though you’ve uninstalled it successfully.

3. Wait for a while for the product to be removed, once done, Kavrmvr informs the operation has been finished and asks to restart your computer.
4. After restart, initiate install of Kaspersky, this time, it will be installed without any issues.
Note: If you’re using antivirus products other than Kaspersky on your computer before, which you’re not successful in removing, then use the uninstall/removal tools offered by those companies.
