3.0 out of 5 stars Not a perfect solution, 12 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 (3 PC, 1 Year subscriptions) (PC) (CD-ROM)
I bought this after several years using Symantec products, after seeing favourable reviews. I've given the program only 3 stars because:-

(a) it slows internet usage down to an unacceptable degree (especially on sites like eBay) and the problem can only be overcome by turning off several of the features built into Kaspersky - which to my mind defeats the whole object of installing this type of software.

(b) periodically the program reports that the database is corrupted and the only solution is to uninstall Kaspersky and then start all over again - which is very inconvenient. Everything then goes as normal, until the database reports that it's corrupted.... This has happened a few times since November last year & is becoming terminally annoying.

These problems seem a pity because in other respects the package seems to be quite comprehensive. I very much doubt though that I shall buy Kaspersky again when renewal times comes around.
