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.

"Won't run full scan"

January 26, 2016  |  By pogoissadistic

 |  Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2016 2016

Pros

?...Could never get it to do a full scan so there are no pros'

Cons

See one-line summary. It will NOT run a full scan. spent far too much time doing research to get it to work and it seems many others had same issue. It rather defeats the purpose for computer protection if it won't run a scan.

Summary

See Cons.
