    "Decent AV but not for all."

    February 18, 2007  |   By StudioFX

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0.303

    Pros

    A good AV.. Does a lot of protection.

    Cons

    Keeps on updating. Uses a lot of RAM. Slows down your computer by a lot. I am using a 1GB RAM and it makes my computer / explorer slows down significantly.

    "Great Antivirus but bad updates and resource hog."

    February 16, 2007  |   By IRONFISTUSA

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0.303

    Pros

    Nice interface and excellent scanning although alittle slow. Good for the beginner and advanced alike. Very good customer service.

    Cons

    Terrible Updates! Many problems with internet connections after install....probably why their updates don't automatically work most of the time. Continuous error messages with updates. Uses too much system resources. I have a 512/120 gig and it still slows my computer down to a crawl. I paid for my subscription but have instead chosen to use NOD32 antivirus by ESET. Fast, light and rated the best. Sorry Kas....you can do better then this.

    "Looked got but problems"

    February 9, 2007  |   By blueskyabove

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0.303

    Pros

    Has a huge virus database, scans slowly and thoroughly and should be able to deal with most threats if it works as intended.

    Cons

    I switched from CA EZAntivirus software to what I thought would be faster and more thorough protection in the light of doom laden forecasts of more malware out there and because reviews seemed good. In practice, it seemed quicker to load than the CA software. However, although the menus and options are laid out well, the terminology used is unfriendly and uninformative and it's difficult to know what to do. Ditto the warning pop-ups when it asks you to respond as it checks processes on the fly.

    It stopped PCTools Spyware Doctor from completing its updating no matter what I did with it and it did the same to Zone Alarm. It stopped and/or made it really difficult for me to log on successfully to my BT Internet account and caused other sites to stall or need a refresh in order to load.

    I have now reverted to CA EZAntivirus software and all these problems have been solved without any further intervention. It's less intrusive as well and doesn't prompt so often even though it's a bit slower. I'm sure there are ways round these issues within Kapersky but it isn't evident to me and I'm a reasonably savvy and experienced user. these days, software of this kind should help rather than hinder the user - it's just not good enough.

    "Everything you will ever want from a virus software"

    February 8, 2007  |   By krazyasif

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0.303

    Pros

    - Its a lot more faster than previous versions of Kaspersky. I bought my laptop form a friend and he had installed Kaspersky 5 and when you went to do a full system scan it would take ages, and it would disrupt any game play or internet sites you was browsing. This new version, WOW, it is so fast to scan, comes in a nice new layout and it even found trojans and viruses that my computer was infected with on the first scan (something which not even freebies such as adaware, virusblast, windows defender found!).

    - Fast download speeds and easy to navigate

    - You can change the set up to suite your needs, if you want you can have extra security when you scan, it will probably find everything ( i keep mine of recommended)

    - It is easy to use

    - You get instant upgrates and downloads (although i keep mine on manual and do it every so often). Note you can use virus update for every one hour or so. It is up to you.

    Cons

    - The price I paid was about £40 from Kaspersky which is quite a lot of money but its still worth it (in my opinion).

    - It can sometimes cause your internet connection to slow (for like 2/3 seconds) but its WAY better than previous versions.

    I think I will stick to kaspersky for a long time. One thing to note is that you have to make sure that all previous virus protection software is turned off and/or uninstalled as having two virus protections on your system will cause it to crash no matter what you have.)

    "This is no question the best Anti virus program on the market."

    February 3, 2007  |   By wlaw666

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0.303

    Pros

    I have tested every anti virus program. Only Nod32 approaches Kaspersky. KAV is pretty, everything works, and it is reliable.The latter is something I found wrong in Norton, Zone Alarm,McAfee, Bit Defender, and yes even your highly recommended free ones. My Daddy used to tell me ....You get what you pay for. Trust me. He was correct. If you can't afford $40 bucks to protect a $2500 computer. You should be spending your money on food for your family.

    Cons

    None at all.

    "a single solution for threats"

    December 24, 2006  |   By smartshanz

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0.303

    Pros

    I have been using Internet and Computers from 2000 and have experienced the efficiency of all the Anti-virus softwares like Mc Affee, Norton, Pc-illian, AVG etc but not even satisfied with any one of them because they occupy huge space and need more resources that an AV shouldn’t use. Another great dis-advantage is that they are not that effective, first they are corrupted by Virus and then they allow Virus to corrupt our system. funny huh ..

    After using AVAST Anti-virus for the past 3 years i have experienced not even a single problem becoz AVAST Anti-Virus uses very less resource and works effectively. But it was two days before my system totally got messed-up and i had no other way then to format my entire drive so i proceeded to do that so. After re-installing all the softwares i once again thought of installing the Avast AV but my friend Srinivasan recommended me to try Kaspersky Internet Security, so on taking his recommendation i installed the Kaspersky to my surprise i have never experienced such a good anti-virus software in my life. This AV is built with all the features a system requires and the main bit is that it uses very very less resource of ram.

    Cons

    hmm not so ...stil exploring if it got any cons....

    "generally reliable, but major problems with updating"

    December 5, 2006  |   By mourningair

    Version: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0.303

    Pros

    Reliable anti-virus protection, the interface is easy to navigate.

    Cons

    The previous versions never disappointed me, but the new updater seems unstable. Or maybe it's just terribly slow! When I tried to update my threat signatures (as the program warned me to), I kept getting time-out errors and the updating process failed somewhere in the middle. The third time around I managed to receive most out of the 7.7mb of the updates, but this time the update ended with another error ("socket not resolved"). Not to mention the whole process took more than an hour, despite the fact that my internet connection is very good! After finding a solution to the problem in a forum, I finally managed to update the program (this time it was faster, too). The whole process, however, definitely wasn't "fast performance" as promised in the publisher's description.
