  Very good scanner.

| | See all KieranJH's reviews (53)

Previously i hadn't heard of Kaspersky at all. For many years i had stuck with the main choice for many people and was running Norton. I finally decided i had had enough of the load times Norton insisted on having when "updating". I came across Kaspersky by chance and had read the many reviews left on it. As i said i hadn't heard of Kaspersky before so i didn't really know how good it was, but after reading the reviews and paying half the price of Norton Internet Security, i'm glad i can say money well spent. Firstly, my pc loads 100% quicker than it did with Norton, and although Kaspersky does update, you hardly notice it happening. The protection is very good and i get told of a network attack or anything similar.
A very useful quick scan is available to use which can take as little as 1 minute, depending on what you are scanning. As far as i know Kaspersky sorts out everything for you, a bit different to Norton as when that found a threat it gave you the option on what to do with it.
However there are some downsides to Kaspersky that i need to address. Firstly installation was a bit of a nightmare, previously i was running Norton, Ad-aware and AVG 8.0 free version(although i rarely used it). Kaspersky refuses to install if other virus scanners are installed, specially AVG, and after searching the web and deleting registry keys to do with AVG i was finally installing this product.
The second little moan is to do with one of the scanners that occurs when browsing the web. I use firefox and i noticed with protection enabled, some images on web pages would take at least 1 minute extra to load or worse case scenario, whole pages wouldnt load at all. If i disabled the protection, they would load with no problem. After finally finding out how to remove it by deactivating one of the settings under web traffic, this little problem is now history.
If like me you were a Norton user and are fed up of the slowness, i would reccommend this scanner, it may need a little bit of tweaking to get it running how you want depending on your system, but it is worth it in the end.

  Easy to use

Found this product easy to set up and to get started. Cheaper than renewing an existing internet suite package. Too early to say how effective in finding viruses etc, but looks and feels like a quality product.

  A Solid, Secure and Sufficent Anti-virus.

This anti-virus is a brilliant piece of software. Okay it's not as automatic as a Norton one, but its far more capable. I do love it, and it works brill on my windows machine. One problem though. Why not just get a mac :)

  best security software on the market

Ive been using the Internet since 2001 and since then Ive used avg, bullguard, mcafee and Norton, Norton uses to much off your computer resources and is slow to detect viruses, mcafee wouldn't pick up more then 60% off spy ware and Trojans when downloading from bit torrents, the only security software that picked up 100% was kaspersky . Ive been using kaspersky since 2006 it updates every hour so there little chance off infection if a new virus was released kaspersky would have it in there virus database within hours were Norton/ mcafee it would be day or so to late. kaspersky uses only a fraction off your computers ram, i found Norton constantly using 30% off my ram. i will never use Norton or mcafee again they are overrated and a pain to use, most professional PC users will tell you to use kaspersky they have won many awards from PC mags and have the highest detection rates.
