    "GREAT ANTI VIRUS"

    July 13, 2012  |   By scott_hill

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 2012

    Pros

    In my opinion, this is the best antivirus ever. I love it. It's a little expensive, but I bought it. Worth buying it! I got rid of a virus using Kaspersky. Avast, Norten, and ESET couldn't get rid of it.
    BUY KASPERSKY. IT'S SUPER AWESOME

    Cons

    I found no con at all. :)

    "An antivirus more dangerous than virus!"

    June 25, 2012  |   By Rajatsubhra_Chakraborti

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 2012

    Pros

    Really, it can make you tear your own hair in seconds!

    Cons

    Slow boot, Freezing PC, conflicts with other software, and after all a lot of CPU hog during scans(which cant remove those threats that free antiviruses can do)

    Summary

    If you want to take revenge on anyone, just gift him/her a kaspersky product...

    "Horrible on new build Windows 7 64bit"

    June 20, 2012  |   By New_W7_64b_Build

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 2012

    Pros

    Easy to remove.

    Cons

    Slowed internet and email to a crawl. Eventually could not connect at all after sleep mode. Then couldn't connect after reboot. Windows lost DNS contact and would fail test.

    Summary

    Changed out with Vipre. Immediate improvement back to seamless reconnect after sleep.

    "Total Waste of Time and Money"

    June 14, 2012  |   By slytheringirl

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 2012

    Pros

    Pros? What pros?

    Cons

    Slow to install, slow to update, and TOTAL RESOURCE HOG!!!!!!!!!

    Summary

    Don't even bother with this one. It took FOREVER to install and when it finally did it took even longer to update. Also it runs not 1, not 2, but THREE instances of the same .exe file which eats up your system's Virtual Memory and even if you hit exit on the system tray, they will STILL be running and you can not kill them with Task Manager. I'm going back to AVG.

    "Terrible software."

    May 28, 2012  |   By arindam-roy

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 2012

    Pros

    You're kidding, right?

    Cons

    Did I read the review wrong? It should be saying that installing this software is the fastest and ultimate method to destroy your computer!

    Summary

    If I find any guy from their company, I'll give him a Camel Clutch, break his back and make him humble.

    "Overkill for the PC"

    May 12, 2012  |   By safe_gate2003

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 2012

    Pros

    not much to say

    Cons

    downloaded the product to test it on my brand new i7 laptop, the installation took some time, I thought that the product will start updating the virus definition automatically-this did not happen, I manually launched the update process-it hanged in 15%. I restarted my laptop, the boot time took long time, well it is the anti-virus trying to get updates, no problem, I opened the console, and it is now 17%. It took two minutes to become 18%, I gave up, stopped it, and uninstalled it.

    Summary

    May be it is a good product, but, I couldn't stand the slow performance it brought to my PC, and I didn't want to wait forever for the definition to be updated.

    "getting this anti-virus is worse than getting a virus"

    March 26, 2012  |   By anightmareofyou

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 2012

    Pros

    the way everything is setup is nice and easy to use

    Cons

    EVERYTHING besides the setup and design

    Summary

    just freezes for me half the time. it also makes my whole computer run very very slow. i dont have a cheap computer and the fact that this program makes my computer run like a 200$ computer makes me very angry.

    Updated on Mar 26, 2012

    also, why would it take 5 minutes to do a full scan one day, and 3 HOURS THE NEXT DAY?!?!
