"Promises with degrading performance"
Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 184.108.40.2063
Still good antivirus, inviting GUI, many useful features, relatively easy to use.
Serious impact to the system and performance, slow, unreliable, unsolved compatibility issues, almost all safety features are buggy, very poor support (can be different by countries) , corporate arrogance. KIS includes many services and features that Kaspersky has been unable to develop and make fully usable and reliable for long years now.
The new GUI as well as many safety features are dependent and subordinate to Kaspersky marketing project to boost sales. They are very inviting but KIS is getting heavier, slower, buggier, more incompatible, and less reliable from KIS 2012.
Recently antivirus solutions give very limited protection and a reliable IS software need many more security features. The KIS series have them but just don't work.
The "TOOL" section offers many features, but they are all buggy, they retrieve false results and fixing them might corrupt the system. E.g. after running " Microsoft Windows Troubleshooting" and fixing some recommended security issues the following "Vulnerability Scan" still lists the same issues as security risk, clicking "FIX", it does nothing.
Virus scan sometimes detects malwares sometimes not. I run 6 full-scans consecutively and it detected the same malware only twice from 6 scans.
I could use all the 15 000 characters to enumerate all the dangerous bugs.
Kaspersky knows about all the bugs for a long time and either they just do not care or have no idea or they don't have the required technical background or potential to fix them. My guessing is -- both.
Prime danger that KIS incompatibility problems and bugs are hidden, hard to notice and detect for average users, and when the system is corrupted or just not protected properly, users will lose association with the triggering issue thus KIS and will not know what went wrong.
I tested many other IS software, all had some minor issues, but not that much and not that unpleasant or dangerous that KIS has.
