    "Promises with degrading performance"

    July 21, 2014  |   By TOMW17

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

    Pros

    Still good antivirus, inviting GUI, many useful features, relatively easy to use.

    Cons

    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.

    Summary

    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.

    "Still Slow! (internet security 2015)"

    July 12, 2014  |   By Hag.

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

    Pros

    -Top rated for protection...matched only by BitDefender
    -Regular updates
    -Features in previous versions that did not work with Firefox now work..(safe-money)etc.

    Cons

    -Still slow scans!

    Summary

    Editor Edie Cho's review states a full scan in only six minutes. ??? I have run four full scans since installing July 8th. Each one took 23 minutes aprox. 388,000 files. A quick scan took six minutes. The scans do not get progressively shorter with each scan as my G Data did. (first one took 25 min....but after doing about 5-6 scans the time got down to 5 min.

    "Horrible!!"

    June 20, 2014  |   By kayann1972

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 14.0.0.4651

    Pros

    ZERO! This is nothing good about Kaspersky Internet Security 2014!!!

    Cons

    I was told by Best Buy Kaspersky Internet Security was the best one to get so I paid the $65 for it. After I installed it I immediately started having issues with Netflix. Kaspersky is NOT compatible with Microsoft Silverlight! I called Microsoft to see if they could help fix the issue and that's when I found out I had 152 BAD virus's on my computer and Kaspersky did NOT catch even 1 of them! They also found evidence of someone trying to hack into my computer, did Kaspersky catch that NOPE! I ended up having to pay $149 to get all the virus's off of my computer. I have since had to call Microsoft 5 times in the past 6 weeks and have virus's removed. Again nothing caught by Kaspersky!I am angry at what a waste of money this software was! I tried to return it to Best Buy 7 days after I bought and surprise you can't return software.DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT IT IS WORTHLESS!Oh yeah, and the only way to watch Netflix is to disable Kaspersky!

    "Seems to work, oddities added"

    June 14, 2014  |   By crsecon

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 14.0.0.4651

    Pros

    Apparently defends Win7 against most nasties, only a few found with independent programs.

    Cons

    Adds user account control-like verification requirements, only more of them to any changes made which require up to 5 more steps. Tries to encrypt connections to yahoo, etc. news pages where not needed and is annoyed when not encrypting. Disables a few other programs of a protective nature. Displays certificate not found or invalid for yahoo and some other heavyweight sites often.

    Summary

    When subscription runs out, returning to my ISPs free security suite.

    "High detection rate, low compatibility."

    June 2, 2014  |   By Reshiram

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 14.0.0.4651

    Pros

    High detection rate

    Cloud assisted protection.

    Cons

    Suddenly crashes (7 times in 1 hour) makes systems vulnerable to threats not even restarting it self, Bug report send failed (10 out of 10) this makes Kaspersky very useless.

    Security addons are incompatible with Google Chrome (Google Chrome blocks it)

    very slow response rate, Explorer freezes until scan is complete for each files.

    "Not the best in market"

    April 20, 2014  |   By wr3239

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 14.0.0.4651

    Pros

    Lot of features.
    Interface is not that difficult.

    Cons

    -It takes a long time to load and the machine freezes till KIS is completely loaded.
    -Even after it is loaded, there is a general performance degradation of the laptop.
    -Safe money option doesn't works at it's own wish and doesn't work for all browsers.

    Summary

    The performance issues that KIS creates, makes it a totally unusable internet security software. Avoid it unless you don't mind waiting 3-4 mins each time you start your laptop.

    "Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 not loading again"

    April 3, 2014  |   By eakerr

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 14.0.0.4651

    Pros

    It's a good product after it loads

    Cons

    Forever waiting to finish loading. I too think KIS 2014 is a waste of money. It behaving like an tourist scam. KIS was okay until 2012, then started going downhill. We all need a reliable internet security program but where can we get one nowadays?
