    "Windows 8 they are NOT ready!"

    October 5, 2013  |   By KuroCloud27

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 14.0.0.4651

    Pros

    Kaspersky allows users who already have a subscription key download the new 2014 Kaspersky Anti-Virus for free.
    2014 has the familiar look and tools like the compatibility checker I have been using for years and I have never gotten a virus or root-kit, or anything.

    Cons

    Constantly makes my computer have error messages and restart. (other anti-virus programs run smoothly)
    The program makes my laptop run slow.
    This program makes my laptop unreliable and is not working well with Windows 8.

    Summary

    They may be able to improve compatibility but until then I will have to use the Windows Defender or use another anti-virus program provider, whom I have always not trusted, but I know their product works and does not slow or cause errors EVERY DAY multiple times like Kaspersky 2014 does.

    Updated on Oct 11, 2013

    Kaspersky 2014 is fixed!! Whatever was in the recent updates must have satisfied my laptop because 3 days and counting no blue screen, no sudden shutdowns, and no error messages. The scans seem to initialize and run smoother as well. Thank You Kaspersky I am glad I did not have to get another anti-virus provider.

    "Slowed down my notebook"

    September 28, 2013  |   By bigears625

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 14.0.0.4651

    Pros

    Tried the free trial of the premium version. Probably is a great AV but slowed down and froze up everything on my notebook.

    Cons

    Leaves leftover files and registry keys which cannot be open or deleted normally. Even after removal the start up screen and taskbar icon would try to run...UGH..finally searched "kaspersky removal tool" and used their own website and download to remove their own spy ware..?? nice...really..!!

    "Flawed,Unreliable and"

    September 21, 2013  |   By AngryStovies

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 14.0.0.4651

    Pros

    Great for protection while surfing picks up most threats.
    Works well with XP.
    AV scans not too bad for speed.

    Cons

    Crashes on Win 7 every 2 mins leaving no protection.
    Slow to activate on start up. Slow update servers.
    Terrible on preventing any outbound leaks.

    Summary

    Really, really disappointing. KIS 2013 was buggy but KIS 2014 for me is literally useless in my Win 7 machine. Had to go back to KIS 2013. I've been using KIS for about 6 years but I have now lost any faith in it.

    "A fortress."

    September 13, 2013  |   By typewriterbug

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 14.0.0.4651

    Pros

    I know for a fact that KIS has the best firewall of all competitors. And what can't hit you, won't give you any damage.

    Cons

    A bit slow at start up. KIS was always considered to be the slowest of the bunch, which I believe is a small price to pay.

    Summary

    Remember that KIS doesn't slow down your system, but your system slows down KIS.

    "An improved version but not yet perfect"

    September 9, 2013  |   By haku_86

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 14.0.0.4651

    Pros

    I trusted Kaspersky ever since it detected and removed threats which were not found by Avira or Avast. My laptop running on Vista is a bit faster now compared to the time when I was using KIS 2013. Of course there are room for improvement

    Cons

    Boot up, shut down and scan time could be improved to make it near perfect. Please keep trying

    Summary

    Gives you an unquestionable sense of security by sacrificing speed and time

    "Disappointed - resource hog"

    September 7, 2013  |   By mrsmarti

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 14.0.0.4651

    Pros

    It is suppose to be very thorough.

    Cons

    It takes 6 - 7 hours to scan the computer and uses up 100% of CPU. You can do nothing while it is scanning. I tried to get help from the forum, but they were unable to resolve why it is SO SLOW. Also, it is not compatible with a bunch of other programs. The fan runs on high for hours.
    After having it for 7 days, I wrote C.S to get my money back. I'm going back to AVG Internet Security.

    Summary

    If you do not mind your system being slowed up, great, but I don't have time nor patience for the headache.
