Editors' review

K7 Total Security provides a number of powerful tools, allowing you to scan and protect your computer from security threats such as viruses, spyware, and more. With basic scanning tools, advanced cache and hard disk cleaning tools, and more, K7 provides not just basic protection, but a range of additional privacy tools for your desktop.

Pros

Strong core security tools: The base of K7 is its suite of security tools for scanning and removing viruses from your computer. These tools are updated frequently, and scans can be run manually or automatically while you work. The tools can also be set to scan downloads, check for problems with new software being installed, or block unauthorized access to the Internet.

Streamlined interface and quick response: The interface is compact and easy to maneuver, and it offers quick access to all of the other tools K7 offers, including disk cleaning tools, anti-spam filters, firewall settings, and more.

Cons

Can be heavy in the background: K7 can take up a decent amount of memory with its default setup. While many of the features causing this can be turned off, it's a lot of extra work, and the slowdown and extra steps required to deal with it can be frustrating.

Bottom Line

K7 Total Security is comparable to many of the other big-name virus scanning and security tools on the market. It provides frequent, thorough updates, can automatically scan your computer, and offers a number of additional tools for security and privacy settings. While not free, it offers a good amount of features for the price and is a solid security and privacy tool.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of K7 TotalSecurity 14.2.0.232.

    "BEST SECURITY EVER DO BUY IT"

    October 28, 2012   |   By sinha010

    Version: K7 Total Security 10.0

    Pros

    I have been using this product from last 1 year. It is one the best product I have ever used. My Laptop is working absolutely fine and the main PROS is that it blocks me from visiting unwanted sites and it keeps my laptop 100% smooth. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT ALL

    Cons

    there are no drawbacks

    Summary

    Don't go for Kaspersky,Norton,etc, they are too costly and also keeps your system overloaded. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ALL OF YOU.

    "Atlast I have found a tool that works !!!"

    April 01, 2011   |   By jeyaranisanthanam

    Version: K7 Total Security 10.0

    Pros

    Cleaned all viruses left out by other tools. The local update server feature saves my bandwidth. Occupies very low system resource. Telephone support was good.

    Cons

    So far so good, I will update when I come across one.

    Summary

    I often had problem with newfolder and conflicker virus, which our previous tool didnt even detect. These guys release multiple updates per day so my network stays clean. The local update server feature is great, helps me update one system over internet and others through it. Great tool for the price.

    "Suspiciously refused to uninstall. I suggest AVOID!"

    February 06, 2011   |   By goscuter1

    Version: K7 Total Security 10.0

    Pros

    Did not see any.

    Cons

    I installed this program due to the reviews above. I don't know what to think of those reviewers now. When I tried to uninstall K7, it simply refused to uninstall or allow deletion of files - I eventually had to employ drastic solutions.

    Summary

    No program that behaves in such a way can possibly be legit. I strongly suggest avoidance.

    Updated on Feb 11, 2011

    Correction required to the above review, but no apology. The malware hijacked K7's files, preventing them from being uninstalled or deleted. Pretty disgraceful for an anti-virus program, but to be fair to K7, it's done it to every major anti-virus/malware/spyware program I've tried....

    When I click on the stars to upgrade rating to 2/5, I get taken to a rating page for SecureCRT. This is some weird crap, CNET.

    "it is a MIRACLE!!"

    September 27, 2010   |   By ahivarn

    Version: K7 Total Security 10.0

    Pros

    Really, it is a miracle and so good! I never hoped it would be perfect.. I had tried Norton 2010, both Anti virus and Internet security, Kaspersky, avira, avg and all that.. Finally this is the best and the perfect I get!

    Cons

    don't know of any cons..

    Summary

    must buy product! No wonder it is no1 in Japan.

    "So and so protection!"

    March 01, 2010   |   By chinnavignesh

    Version: K7 Total Security 10.0

    Pros

    The method of updates are best.It can be interrupted any time and continue with the ended! The costumer support is amazing. Less in cost.

    Cons

    The Firewall protection is worst and can be easily turned off. The parental control's can be fooled.Bad interface. Resource hungry! Reaches up to 120 MB consumption at scans and the slow down can be identified.

    Summary

    The product can be used for basic protection for every thing it covers. Not better than Avast!

    "The best security suite i've ever used."

    December 14, 2009   |   By motley14

    Version: K7 Total Security 10.0

    Pros

    Effective, easy to use and light on the pocket! I've finally found a security product i'm satisfied with and will stick with it.

    Cons

    None whatsoever. I've never been so satisfied with my computers security.

    Summary

    Great all-round security that covers all the bases. Security suites can often be a pain to configure to your liking but K7 was actually quite fun and easy. It has an intuitive and easy to navigate interface and a fantastic Help section which is actually very helpful, well written, easy to understand and only one click to get the help you need when you need it. Cheaper than most of the big names (Norton, Kaspersky etc) and highly configurable. Good for novices and advanced users alike. Novices can just set and forget with the default recommended (typical) settings.
