    "Greatly Improved from PURE 2.0"

    March 10, 2013  |   By zeroday1

    Pros

    It's obvious that Pure 2.0 had some very serious database update issues which inevitably plagued that build and caused Kaspersky to release 3.0 and it certainly seems that Pure 3.0 has addressed these issues.

    Kaspersky Pure 3.0 also seems to be more stable generally speaking.

    Cons

    The interface and help descriptions need much improvement for they certainly aren't designed to be user friendly, to say the least...and in fact do more to confuse the average end-user, rather than to offer comprehensive descriptions using proper grammatical context, so as not to leave up to interpretation the intricate settings that need to be clearly understood by the user in order to be configured correctly.

    Summary

    Bottom Line...Kaspersky offers some of the best security solutions available to date and should not be overlooked simply because of its lack of a non-user friendly interface and of understandable help descriptions.

    Kaspersky is rated among the top 5 on "av-test.org" and certainly is ahead of the competition in many ways.

    If you are looking for comprehensive protection with advanced features and settings...then Kaspersky is the way to go!
