Essential PC Protection
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 is the backbone of your PC's security system, working behind-the-scenes to deliver the fastest and most trusted virus and spyware protection in the world.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 key benefits
- Real-time protection against viruses, spyware, & more
- Unique Automatic Exploit Prevention
- Fast & Efficient PC Performance
1. Real-time protection against viruses, spyware, Trojans, rootkits, and more
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 is the backbone of your PC's security system, packed with the latest Kaspersky Lab technologies from our team of world-class security experts and engineers. It works behind-the-scenes with intelligent scanning and small, frequent updates, while delivering real-time, cloud-enabled protection from the latest threats, and proactive protection from unknown dangers. It's essential protection that won't slow you down.
2. Automatic Exploit Prevention to ensure vulnerabilities won't compromise your PC
One of the easier ways for cybercriminals to find holes in users' protection is through application and system vulnerabilities that haven't been updated with the latest fixes. For example, such popular programs as Adobe Reader, Internet Explorer, and Firefox, can offer an easy gateway for malicious programs. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 goes beyond simply scanning for vulnerabilities to include now analyzing and controlling the actions of programs and applications with vulnerabilities, so they can't cause any harm.
3. Website and email scanning to detect malicious software
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 provides superior protection from suspicious or malicious websites, checking all web pages for the presence of malicious code. It also scans incoming and outgoing email messages and blocks harmful content - all without slowing you down.
4. Fast and efficient PC performance
Fully enjoy your PC and the Internet without being dragged down by your security software. Small, smart updates and intelligent scanning operate behind-the-scenes while delivering maximum PC performance. Plus, our special Gamer Mode ensures an uninterrupted gaming experience, while still keeping you secure.
5. Rapid reaction to new and emerging threats
New Internet threats emerge with amazing speed, and the latest Kaspersky technologies are there to protect you with real-time data from the cloud. Plus, you're linked to millions of participating Kaspersky Security Network users around the world. When suspicious or unrecognizable data is encountered on those systems, it's automatically analyzed by our lab, and real-time, protective updates are issued to all of our users, giving you the ultimate protection as new threats emerge.
6. Instant safety checks on files, applications and websites
The security status and reputation of files and websites is now at your fingertips. With a single mouse-click, File Advisor uses cloud-based technologies to check the safety of any file you'd like to access. And, our URL Advisor adds color-coded tags to all web links to advise you of the danger level of the link and subsequent pages. Search the web with confidence that you won't stumble onto any dangerous websites.
7. Rollback of harmful malware activity
Kaspersky's multiple layers of protection are your best defense against cybercrime, delivering premium protection from new and emerging threats. And if an unknown piece of malware does manage to find its way onto your system, Kaspersky's unique System Watcher will detect the dangerous behavior and allow you to undo most unwanted and harmful activity.

After installation my first impression was that there's really little difference between this and the 'full' Internet Security version - all the most important bits are there and the only major components missing are the firewall and the application control module, which monitors for bad app's doing naughty things. The firewall is easily replaced with the inbuilt Windows 7 firewall (which is actually pretty good) and to be honest, on my other laptop, I find myself cursing the Application Control module as often as I'm thanking it, it's a bit paranoid and sometimes blocks innocent app's going about their business. On the negative side the Kaspersky slowdown effect, which makes your PC slower to boot and slows the launching of app's, is still quite noticeable - but maybe that's a worthwhile compromise for decent malware protection. This Anti-Virus version isn't always that much cheaper than the Internet Security version but when there is a good saving I'd certainly recommend it as you're still getting worthwhile malware protection just in a slightly leaner form.
AV products can be made to be very tight and allow a limited number of known safe applications to run without question and stop just about everything else or rather slack and allow almost everything, but that can be risky. Kaspersky is somewhere in the middle but it now uses a system whereby it users data passed from users to expand the lists of safe and presumed unsafe applications from the thousands installed by its users. This has the obvious advantage in that you can be reassured if a thousand or more other users have not experienced a problem after having installed an application that may be unfamiliar to you.
I have always found that it is less likely to report false negatives where something is infected although said to be safe and less likely to report false positives where an uninfected file is claimed to be unsafe.
It now offers 'Safe Money' which is a means to ensure that Credit Card numbers and the like are entered in a secure manner within its own safe web browser rather than in any standard browser which may be far less secure.
As with any other product of some complexity, it does have a learning curve and a downloadable manual to assist. I would definitely recommend that it be obtained and read.
It's also very good value, protecting 3x PC's for a year.
This years version adds Windows 8 support.
I run an IT based business and need good protection from all the perils on the Internet. I have used most protection software over the years but keep coming back to Kaspersky. Reviewing Kaspersky 2013 3 User version.
Kaspersky - in the box
In the box you get the program disk and the install code with a pamphlet on how to install and set up the software.
This very easy - just put the disk in and it auto runs. The only time you are asked for anything is at the registration stage. It is advisable to be connected to the net while installing as the software looks for the latest version and any updates.
Basically you can load it and forget it as the software works on auto pilot. Kaspersky is a very well established company and the program is mature and does not intrude unless it has to. There are several options to set up scans etc. You can do a complete system scan, Vulnerability scan which shows any potential problems with the system set up and then recommends weather they need to be fixed or not. There is also the facility to drag a suspect file to be inspected. It is all very simple to use.
Data entry and passwords
Kaspersky also has a system to recognise passwords and add an extra layer of security when using them. The system also uses real time Cloud protection to block new threats
System slowing (none noticed)
Many users complain that anti-virus and firewall software slows the system. Kaspersky has little impact on system resources on modern machines. I am running it on an Intel i5 machine with 8Gb of RAM and I notice no performance fall off.
Probably the best security software out there. Simply load it and let it get on with it - how security software should be. In a recent Computer Shopper review it came out as the best security software, I can only agree as over the many years of owning it I have never had any problems from Viruses, Malware or hackers.
