Kaspersky has consistently proven its ability to deliver the highest malware detection rates and fastest response times to new threats. Our user base (300 million systems) gives us high visibility of new threats as they emerge. Kaspersky has the infrastructure, systems, know-how, and technology to deliver large scale malware protection.
3. You and your family are safe from online predators
KIS 2011 controls access to unsuitable material, prevent unacceptable and unwanted communications, and guard sensitive and valuable information. These include advanced parental control (improved) and URL filtering modules to guard against inappropriate web sites; firewalls to prevent information being taken from your PC without your consent; Anti Spam (improved) and IM filters (new)which supervise and filter phishing, adult materials and unwanted buying opportunities; privacy cleaner to ensure you have not left an internet trail behind you; and a "Safe Run" area completely isolating you and your PC from any un-trusted sites.

KIS employs multiple technologies to protect access to your online accounts and personal details including: 2 way firewall preventing your personal data being sent from your PC without your consent, Safe Surf (new) warning you of potentially problematic web sites, Anti-Phishing technology protecting you from scams; Safe Run (sandbox - improved) technology isolating any untrusted software and internet sites and real-time malware protection for up to the second security.
5. Real time protection against new malware threats
With 30,000 new threats a day,daily, Hourly or even 15 minute pulse updates are no longer enough to assure protection; and they can reduce the performance of your PC. Kaspersky's Host Intrusion Prevention Systems (HIPS), Kaspersky's Urgent Detection System (UDS) and Safe Surf are the real time – low interference answer to this problem. Kaspersky use real-time reports from over 1 million customers on the Kaspersky Security Network to build comprehensive databases of safe and unsafe software and internet sites. In addition HIPS automatically references information about unclassified suspicious programmes in the internet cloud which are under investigation between updates.
6. Keep your PC running smoothly and protect your PC and files from damage and loss
Malware authors mostly fall into two categories: cyber vandals who's only intention is to manipulate with the contents of your PC to demonstrate what they can do and cybercriminals who are in business to make money out of exploiting electronic vulnerabilities to steal your private and financial information. As well as damaging your information which may have an impact on your PC's performance by slowing it down, and blocking/hiding/moving PC facilities etc. Kaspersky offers protection against malware interfering with your PC and your information.

You don't have to be an expert because Kaspersky is. 20 years experience fighting cybercrime and cybervandalism and protecting over 300 million customers has given us the expertise to consistently deliver outstanding detection rates and response times – and understand our users needs. KIS 2011 has a new installer which makes it far easier to set-up on your PC. It also gives customers a choice of 2 interfaces, the standard interface allowing detailed control of your security and the Kaspersky Gadget (new)– a simplified tool which allows users to quickly carry out the most commonly used tasks.

Kaspersky has a well deserved reputation for fast software security whilst preserving your PCs performance. Kaspersky take a more intelligent approach to managing the balance between software security speed and PC performance, we have added options such as scanning when PC is idle and Kaspersky's Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) which eliminates the need to constantly download virus signatures to counter over 30,000 new threats per day, while maintaining real-time malware protection.

KIS now makes it simpler to remove stubborn third party security products during the installation process. Also if the installation process fails due to viruses and malware already on the PC, Kaspersky Internet security will abort the installation and initiate Kaspersky AVP which will perform a thorough clean down of the infected system preparing it for a clean install. Kaspersky will stop most new malware programs even if they have never been seen before, it also comes with easy to use tools such as Rescue CD (improved) – which completely cleans infected systems.

Subjectively I would say it has less of a performance impact than McAfee and Norton.
Extensive range of features including virus protection, firewall, anti spam and banners, registry monitoring, anit-phising,parental controls, rescue disc (not with downloaded version), virtual keyboard and tune up utilities.
Once installed there is minimal intervention required.
If you want to tailor the settings then the interface is easier to follow than McAfee.
Installs seamlessly over earlier versions of kaspersky.
Installation: As usual with Kaspersky the documentation does not reflect how the application actually works. I installed 2011 on a machine running the 2010 version. The installation went ok until it requested me to reboot, which I did with the installation CD still in the drive. Upon rebooting it went into a rescue mode and then crashed. I rebooted without the installation disc in the drive and all was ok. This has lost it a star.
The best thing you can say about Kaspersky is that you can't say very much. By that I mean it runs in the background without sucking up resources noticeably to the point where you forget you have an anti virus program until it pops up to let you know something may need checking.
The interface is similar to the older versions with a slight modernisation to keep it looking current. There's nothing that isn't easy to see up front and all settings are done on install and you are guided through the process. You can leave the program to set itself up or you can change to your specific requirements. I just let it set up as per its default as I've found that the other versions seem to work perfectly well as Kaspersky intended.
I have found that programs such as Norton or McAfee are almost as bad as getting a virus or a Trojan. With Kaspersky on a now low-mid range computer I have never had any issues or slowing down to any level where I noticed it. The same applies to my other much higher spec computers that I use this 3 licence program for.
Does it work? Well in three years of using various versions of Kaspersky on the same computer I have not had any virus', Trojans or other nefarious bits of software causing havoc on my PC. Of course, you can't prove a negative, but this 2011 Kaspersky is an upgrade and I have absolute confidence that it will continue to perform well. Certainly for home use I don't believe that there is a better security suit available.
I gather this is a 'known' glitch which usually strikes where there is a security program clash. But I had removed everything they said (and in the past used removal tools to clean out Norton/AVG/McAffee) so I don't see how that that was it. Apparently it disconnects the USB ports and unless you have an old PS/2 port and keyboard you are up the proverbial without a paddle.
There is a 'rescue disc' which they sent after a couple of emails to the tech department (good support), though by I had already called in a pro who had his own copy and had 'heard about it'.
I shall not be upgrading when my subscription runs out unless I am sure they have fixed the 2011 one. Time to try another security suite.
I purchase it annually as a new product rather than just upgrading on the web site though as Amazon usually have a good deal on it, or just a good proce, better than just doing the update from Kaspersky themselves.
Installation is a breeze and it has caught a few things trying to sneak onto my system, and to be honest I think this is the cleanest system I have ever had after using Kaspersky for just over a year. Sometimes, it "catches" things it does't need to, but there is a real minimum of these "false positives", certainly in my ecperience, less than many of the other products I have tried over the years (ZonaAlarm, AVG etc).
One of my fave features is the virtual keyboard, so if you are paranoid about a keylogger on your system when you are putting your online banking system, just launch this and it lets you enter your details without even touching your keyboard, a nice wee extra for those worried about your security.
Another is the network monitor that lets me see eaxctly what is doing things through my network, and keep an eye out for anything which is hogging my bandwidth or accessing the internet behind my back.
I will certainly be renewing this product next year, and I never ever considered saying that for any of the security systems that have ever come with my systems like McAfee or Norton.
