Editors' Review

Kaspersky Anti-Virus is a proactive malware scanner and virus removal tool that protects your PC.

Pros

User interface: Here Kaspersky has maintained its uncluttered look and approachable interface, similar to that found in Kaspersky Internet Security. As with its other products, Kaspersky has stepped back from differentiating its product with an annual naming scheme, and the result is a consistent brand image that remains strong. Your main security status is front and center, with various tools and options tucked away in a drawer.

Security: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 performed a full scan on our test machine in under 15 minutes. According to AV-Comparatives Real-World Protection test, Kaspersky shares the top spot with Avira and Bitdefender with a 99.8 percent block rate. However, Kaspersky also had zero false positive scans, compared to Bitdefender's 7. AV-Test results also concluded that Kaspersky scored a perfect 6.0/6.0 in both the protection and usability tests.

Cons

Performance hit: Although Kaspersky Anti-Virus performed well in security, we did notice very minimal lag with our boot and shutdown times after installing the program. Kaspersky Anti-Virus does have some minor influence on your machine if you're running it on a dated PC, but overall we didn't find the lag too inconvenient.

Bottom Line

Kaspersky may be charging a few bucks more than some other security solutions, but pricing is consistent with high-scoring competitors. Overall, it does its job, and it does it well. We highly recommend downloading the trial to see if Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 significantly improves your system performance. If you don't notice any issues, and you're in the market for an anti-virus program, then we recommend this program.

"Left pop-up residue! Don install!"

November 11, 2014  |  By whomiask

 |  Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2015

Pros

nothing I can think of!

Cons

Left residue after uninstall!

Summary

I was trial the kAV 2015 to see if it's good AV since it has been highly recommend. After install the AV on Win 7 x64 and tried to uninstall it. This method will let me know if this is a good app. Apparently the kAV 2015 is a junk, worthless at all!
After my PC rebooted, the kAV 2015 still pop up and I didn't setup any password as it mentioned in its support. I used its remover tool also won't work. It said no kAV found but it left in my windows. Now I have to restore my windows! Some readers said it'll corrupt the OS and I think it's possible due to you try hard to delete it and likely corrupted windows' files. SPEND YOUR $$ ELSE WHERE!

"Slows us down as much as a virus combined with spyware."

August 23, 2014  |  By NexusSecurity

 |  Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2015

Pros

Beats having a virus despite costing just as much speed if it really protects the computer and keeps data confidential.

Cons

This application slows us down so much, its hard to tell if the program is providing any protection without scanning with another

Summary

Cost in speed is too high and makes it hard to confirm the program is working correctly.
