"Very good AV"

May 21, 2012  |  By JayGullen

 |  Version: K7 Antivirus 8.0


GUI friendly
Heuristic engine(System Monitor)very good!
Good System scan (full scan 40 min.)


Memory used: moderate. Can be heavy on older PCs
Separate rootkit scanner.
Struggles with 0-3 day old malware


Has a simple GUI. This AV can keep your system up-to-date with vulnerability options. As far as keeping the system clean, it struggles to keep adware bundle junk out for the most part. Has a separate scanner for rootkits. I'm not sure if the Full scan option scans for rootkits or not. Would be silly if it didn't. System Monitor,their heuristic engine, works great! It caught viruses that the definitions missed.

For a paid AV, IMO, I've seen better. K7 ,however, is a step on the right direction.

"Horrible experience"

September 21, 2010  |  By gleits

 |  Version: K7 Antivirus 8.0


It looks like it keeps you safe...


3 (!) of my PC's started crashing at random times after I had the product installed. The UI is horrible and looks like it was developed by a summer intern. The firewall keeps you safe by basically stopping all network traffic!


I wanted this product to work... I use Steganos software from another German vendor for 4 years now and I am happy with their products. They had K7 advertised on their website so I bought it to replace Zonealarm/AVG free. Big mistake. My PC's started crashing at random times and the firewall fept me from accessing my home network at random times, even though my home IP range was supposed to be excluded. I tried to make this work for almost 3 weeks, but finally got tired and installed the Zonealarm/AVG free combination again. Now, everything runs smoothly again. I buy a lot of software for both personal and professional use. This one is half baked. Don't use it!
