    "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.

    "The Best Product In It's Class Today"

    March 31, 2014  |   By cowboy_5000

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2014

    Pros

    Ease of Use, Fully Automated, Very Light on Memory, Transparent to OS...

    Cons

    "ZERO" Cons

    Summary

    I've tried them all for years and they ended up more of a hassle to manage, heavy on memory and the advertised outweighed the product. Kaspersky is bullet proof meaning; whatever Trojan, Hicker, spoofer, ghoster or worm I have seen thrown at it is done... This software simply display's after the attempt "dealt with", please continue your work as if nothing happened, no biggy.

    Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 is some serious stuff and simply does not play!

    Buy it and forget about it...

    "Run Away From This As Fast As You Can!!!!!"

    March 22, 2014  |   By slytheringirl

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2014

    Pros

    NONE WHATSOEVER!

    Cons

    IT WILL MESS WITH YOUR MACHINE!!!!!!!!!

    Summary

    I initially had the 2013 trial version preinstalled on my VAIO laptop. I had 0 problems so I paid them to continue using it when my trial was up. I then installed this version after receiving an email from Kaspersky telling me of the latest software update. BIG. HUGE. MISTAKE on my part. Ever since updating to the 2014 version, the autoplay for my flash drives REFUSES to work even though Windows 8 has it enabled. There was a way in the previous version to fix that, but NOT in this version! Also now my DVD/CD-RW Drive no longer registers as a dual drive, but as a DVD-RW drive!! I fear I may have to go to Sony and have them reinstall everything. LESSON LEARNED -- KASPERSKY IS A PC KILLER!!

    "simplicity"

    December 6, 2013  |   By the_fork

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2014

    Pros

    this is the first security that has kept me virus free for 12 consecutive months. let me tell you about installation just for the record:
    windows 8.....no issues, conflicts or plug ins not working
    windows 7 (64).... 2013 suite was fine, but screen resolution needs to be 100%, if it is more then remote keyboard stutters and has shade behind cursor. 2014,, with ie 10 can be problematic, with ie 11 it works fine, but i advise a full uninstall and re install first, and if you are doing this mid term of you contract,the licence may register as there, but missing, so then remove the licence on kaspersky ui, the red small part at top on licence renewal page, re start, and re insert licence, then all should be fine.

    Cons

    2014 has had issues re licence acceptance when installing mid contract. if you have trouble with safe money remote character fields not working there are many fixes, but i found complete re install and removal of licence key can help.

    Summary

    the best for two years running, nothing comes close to it when using on slow machines. if you find it is slower on renewal then do a complete re install and remove the licence number as well and use the 30 day trial, then re insert licence when all is running well and not before. Kaspersky take a while, but have always comeback to me to resolve issues.Security is a necessary evil, Kaspersky keeps those evils to a minimum, if you have issues, contact them before trashing this product, you may be surprised at the outcome

    "Best Protection for the Money"

    November 29, 2013  |   By KSFiddler

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 2014

    Pros

    1. Best Buy Geek Squad recommended it.
    2. Offers protection for 3 machines with one license for one relatively low price.
    3. Automates what I want to be automatic. Doesn't automate what I'd rather do manually.
    4. Have used on 3 computers for 3 years without any viruses.
    5. Causes spittle when I say its name.

    Cons

    1. Startup and shutdown protection causes *painfully* slow startup and shutdown, but I suppose it's being thorough.
    2. Vague instructions for tools and features.
    3. Cannot manually quarantine a file (that I can tell).
    4. Automatic update and scan scheduling isn't as automatic as should be.
    5. Large desktop widget.

    Summary

    I would recommend this product for the thrifty, conscientious consumer who desires effective, affordable protection for the small family or office.
