*if you have subscription left on your 2011 KIS then you can download this upgrade to the latest version via a download from the official Kasperksy website and keep the remainder of your subscription in tact. As far as I'm aware Kasperksy are the only anti virus company that lets you do this (you'd normally have to buy the latest program).

**Or you can buy KIS 2011 now from Amazon for around £19.99 which is half the price of 2012 and then still do the upgrade to 2012 online to get the latest version**

It is really easy to do, I did it last night and set it all up in less than an hour. The new interface looks slightly cleaner than the 2011 version and now has an extra cloud based protection, for a more instantaneous protection from new virus's.

All the usual features are here, including the useful onscreen keyboard to keep things a bit more secure when entering passwords (ie protection from keyloggers) and a safe run mode for your Internet Browser too for an extra level of security.

Being Internet Security (rather than Anti Virus only), you also get the Firewall, anti virus, anti spam etc. They also do a useful "Vulnerabilities Scan" which lets you know if any of your programs, ie Firefox, Java, Flash etc need upgrading.

As always, its not free, you can get some decent packages free i know, but Kasperksy has that trusted nature about it, it has always been a very solid internet security package. I've used KIS 2010, 2011 and now 2012 and love it, it keeps everything out without slowing the system down noticeably.

If you don't want to risk your laptop getting a virus and going kaput then Kasperksy is an excellent choice.

I have used Kaspersky since becoming frustrated with Norton and never been disappointed with the product. It does what it says on the box. Great.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the third version of Kaspersky I've installed and as per usual I have faith in its ability to keep my computer safe within reason. However I do have an issue which I don't know if it is deliberate or accidental but it could lead you to pay twice.

When I put the install disc in as soon as it ran I was told that a newer version was available and would I like to download and install that one? This isn't unusual when putting in a new program so I agreed. It downloaded without a hitch and then I had a problem. I couldn't put the code in for my copy. The only way I could get the program to run fully would be to purchase a new licence for it at £29. Not funny. I then decided to contact Kaspersky and ask them for a code but there was no way I could find a contact email - although I'm sure one exists for legal reasons. The help system basically related 2011 version nor did any FAQ's relate to my issue.

In the end I uninstalled Kaspersky from my computer and then put the disc back in and ran it. This time I ticked 'NO' for the newer version. This time I got the screen asking me for the code which I put in and registered successfully. Once again I do have a slight issue because on the screen asking for the code it kind of wants to lead you to purchasing a new copy.

Overall I'd say that Kaspersky have created 2012 in such a way that you could very, very easily end up paying twice for the same product and that is definitely dodgy practice.

Once we get away from the shady install we have a similar feel and layout as in previous versions with the usual interface changes to make it seem different. The desktop screen is more like a Windows App in it's look and operation. The main screen is clean and easy to use and of course Kaspersky is one of the better anti-virus programs out on the market.

So I'd normally give five stars for Kaspersky but due to their underhand install I'm knocking it down to three.

Have used KIS on several PCs and laptops since 2009 and as an experienced computer user I must admit that it is not always been very straightforward to configure in the past. However, on default settings it protects to a very high standard and has multiple layers of protection, which is very important.

It could benefit in some parts from some simplification for average users - but not removing features for more advanced users.

In conclusion I would give KIS 5 stars for protection but only 3 for the rest, so 4 overall.

Update: 12 November 2011 -

Over the past 4 months since my initial review I have installed KIS 2012 on several PCs and laptops / netbooks and during that period Kaspersky have also fixed some earlier issues with the product.

I am upgrading my rating to 5 stars because this software has now proven to be really impressive in its protection, smoothness and low impact, especially noticeable (positively) on my not too powerful two year old business laptop; it really flies along.

I have probably trialled at least 75% of the security software companies over the years, and even recently did a lot of testing on suites as well as individual combinations of seperate firewalls, AV, behaviour blockers, etc.

All the testing was done in test virtual environments and then follwed with real production experience on various PCs and laptops.

In my experience, and others may disagree, but KIS 2012 is the best suite for protection in all of my malware tests. It ranks alongside my favourite bespoke combination of some other specialist security softwares.
