    November 21, 2012  |   By Frogg11

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2013

    Pros

    Rock solid protection.

    Cons

    Impact on boot time is just too severe.
    It also slowed my browsers far too much.

    Summary

    Other products offer a better compromise between security and performance impact.

    "Slow, slow, slow, and advertised as free but is not"

    October 10, 2012  |   By storm143

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2013

    Pros

    Seemed effective

    Cons

    Slowed my computer down drastically. This was listed as a free version, however, I kept getting daily reminders that it would expire in 30 days. The reminders were worse than a nuisance, as I got reminders not just at start-up but in the middle of running a program or surfing the web. Absolute nuisance to get so many reminders for something that was billed as free. I will not pay for something that is supposed to be free, no matter how good it is. Nor will I be harassed by a program to do so.

    Summary

    Not worth the hassle.

    "be very carefull"

    September 28, 2012  |   By richymun4

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2013

    Pros

    nice interface plenty of settings to tweak

    Cons

    slows your entire pc down even on top end pc has trouble scanning rar files also their is a problem with boot times the latest build i tested took about 2 minutes to start in witch this time you are un protected.On kaspersky forums people said that programs they blocked were accessing the internet until kaspersky started the posts in question were promptly deleted from the forums just be careful the 2013 version.

    Summary

    will be good if they tweak the performance more and boot times try bitdefender it is much quicker and won many awards.

    "the worst antivirus software ever"

    September 27, 2012  |   By skyy51

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2013

    Pros

    it doesn't slow down my ultrabook as much as norton

    Cons

    randomly shuts off and then says key is invalid! by the time customer service gets back to you-you are infected! everyone on my email list, including my boss, is tired of getting spammed.

    Summary

    i removed the no-good anti viral software off of my computer and went w/ trend.

    do not spend a dime on this product or you will regret it.

    "Very good software"

    September 19, 2012  |   By winguard7

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2013

    Pros

    The best anti-virus I've ever used.
    It has got rid of some nasty viruses since I started using it.
    It's much more effective than free anti-virus software.
    In fact I find it's about trust, I trust Kaspersky will find the
    Threat.
    Many occasions free software would not pick the Threat on my system up. Kaspersky, on the other hand, caught it within seconds!

    Cons

    It's not free - but then if it where free, it wouldn't be such a good product.

    Summary

    I have tried many paid for and free antivirus. Kaspersky is the only one I trust to work as well as I need it to.
    It's like a drug for me, you cannot live without it!

    "Not for a productive enviroment"

    September 4, 2012  |   By []D.[].[]V[].[]D

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2013

    Pros

    When it comes to protection while browsing the web Kaspersky is very protective.

    Cons

    I found that when it crashes it takes a cautious approach by denying access to all drives, including USB sticks. While this is certainly protective it means that any work that has been done and not saved cannot be saved at all.
    Another issue is false positives. This may perhaps be one way of falsely installing some confidence in the end user.
    Lastly, I noticed a massive slow down because of the level of scanning. Opening files is slower and boot time has more than doubled.

    Summary

    Although I feel quite negative towards Kaspersky as I've mentioned above I would suggest this for users who are not doing anything productive. I would quite happily install this on an old persons computer or a young childs computer.

    "Can be gotten cheaply if you know what to do"

    August 30, 2012  |   By WebrootFan

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2013

    Pros

    As good as there is on the market today.Definitely optimized for those running Win 7and multi-core processors

    Cons

    Doesn't run great on xp,but then again xp should be retired by now.

    Summary

    I have heard many say that it is expensive,but you can use license keys as far back as 2011 model year on 2013.Current rate on the Kaspersky internet security 2012 on amazon.com is 15 bucks aprox for a 1 user license and under 20 for a 3 user license..Just download 2013 from the kaspersky website and install as a trial while you wait for your key to arrive..then when your trial is up install the license key from kaspersky 2012 that you purchased from azmazon and voila.
