4.0 out of 5 stars Why pay less for more? Err... 11 Sep 2009
By Peter TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
OK, here's the deal. MS Windows comes with almost everything you need to protect your computer - firewall, automatic updates to help plug vulnerabilities, a spam filter (this comes with the Outlook email client), and even an anti-malware/anti-spyware package called Windows Defender. What Microsoft don't provide is an antivirus program (Defender is not one), so that's what you need to keep your PC and everything on it safe.

Kaspersky make two products, Kaspersky Internet Security 3 User, 1 Year License, 2010 (PC CD) and this Antivirus program. The antivirus program is pretty much what it sounds like - it watches out for viruses in your email or while you're browsing the internet, and stops them from harming your computer. It does it quietly and efficiently in the background. The Internet Security program does all that, and also has a few extra security-related things, including (in my experience) a spam filter that hides emails from me that I wanted to see. The 2009 version also contained a rather pointless duplication of the firewall that comes with Windows, but that seems to have been dropped at the 2010 release.

Anyway, the message is that Kaspersky Antivirus contains everything you need to keep your computer safe, and Internet Security has some other bits that aren't really necessary. Now, when I spend my money on a decent computer, I want as few unnecessary processes using up my precious CPU cycles as possible. And that's why I've downsized from Kaspersky Internet Security to Kaspersky Antivirus. It seems to have done the trick - my laptop is quite a lot more sprightly than it used to be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with this Version of Kaspersky 18 July 2009
I've been a user of Kaspersky since Version 6 and had always thought Kaspersky was better than the rest, but this version leaves me disappointed. It's not because the protection offered is bad, but there seems to be some issues that let this down.

Kaspersky like some other rival Anti-virus software on the market uses a HTTP web scanner, which scans web browsing traffic for threats. HTTP Web scanners in theory give an extra layer of protection alongside the standard On-access scanner. The Downside is that there is an impact on web page load performance, but in my experience this can vary greatly between Anti-virus solutions. Bitdefenders and Avasts HTTP scanners are very good and I hardly notice a slowdown, but Kasperskys in my opinion is by far the slowest. It seems to take long to open web pages and some web pages have loaded incorrectly for me like Missing images etc. There is an option within the software to disable this feature and then the websites are fast again for me, but why should a paying customer lose an element of protection because the feature doesn't work properly. Kaspersky 2009 also had this feature, but that worked much better than the 2010 version.

Another feature that is annoying for me is the proactive defence, which helps detect Viruses, Trojans, key loggers etc on their behaviour. While it can help stop these nasties infecting a computer when the Malware type isn't in the Kaspersky database, but I have found it likes to falsely label legitimate programs. It was telling me that something (I know to be safe) was acting suspiciously, but lets say it really was a real threat, Kaspersky offered zero information on what to do with it.

The positives of Kaspersky 2010 is that the start-up times have been decreased and there has been a big improvement on update speed. The Kaspersky 2010 Interface also looks better. I just feel compared to my past experiences of earlier Kaspersky versions, this is a let down for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Antivirus I have ever used 22 Oct 2009
By Paul Ferguson VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have used Norton (many years ago) and AVG Free in the past, and both of them have had their upsides and downsides. The fact that AVG Free is... well, free... obviously that's a big plus for people, but at the same time, the software was fussy and often slow. Norton sucked up resources left right and centre, and required any number of tweaks just to let a program run without it interfering. But very soon after installing Kaspersky, I was transported to a magical world where Anti-Virus sits in its corner and does what it's supposed to without needing your attention every two minutes.

The software installed quickly and without any hassle, and instantly started working thanks to its resident shield. I can't say for sure it's better than its competitors, but it caught and killed three trojans within a day that Windows Defender had alerted me about repeatedly for a week, and AVG simply didn't notice until I pointed it in the right direction, and even then it couldn't get rid of them. It has also caught several email attachments that AVG did not notice were sitting in Thunderbird's junk folder. A (very quick) "quick scan" and a "vulnerability scan" alerted me to several other issues that I had not previously been aware of.

A full scan took a while, but it was dealing with a lot of files, and actually it didn't pick up anything that wasn't found in the quick scan. It also quietly updates its database while in the background, so your protection is always up to date. A quick check in the Windows Task Manager puts the background memory usage during browsing at between about 4MB and 12MB depending on activity, which is entirely reasonable.

It sits in its corner, and notifies you if there is a potential problem.
