Kaspersky Internet Security

CNET Editors' review

Protecting your computer from viruses is not something to take lightly, so we're glad to say Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal Pro does a reasonable job of keeping your PC safe. We like this application's unique features that protect Microsoft Office applications, as well as the new utilities for safeguarding archived files.

The interface divides the app's functionality into three main areas: Protection, Settings, and Support. The Protection tab offers the meat of the features, with tools for scanning drives, downloading the latest virus definitions, quarantining offenders, archiving, and generating reports. The Settings tab supplies a number of options for configuring the level of protection, scheduling events, tailoring the interface, or adjusting the program's behavior to your liking. The Support tab also gives you some nice features, including a virus encyclopedia and an option for sending the app's developers a questionable file for analysis.

Recently, Kaspersky has been slightly outperformed in catching threats and we find the price to be a bit steep. All told, though, Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal Pro's combination of tools and features make it an excellent choice for personal use.

Kaspersky 2013 locks down your dollars:

    "Perfect anti-virus solution"

    June 13, 2009  |   By primecipher

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.0.125

    Pros

    Very high detection rates
    Cannot be circumvented as easily as any other antivirus program
    Low false positives with extended security features
    Install it and forget it
    Customer service will go above and beyond the call of duty

    Cons

    There is nothing negative I can truthfully say about this product.

    Summary

    We had a network issue that I thought might have been caused by a recent Kaspersky implementation. I contacted customer service and they helped resolve the issue even though it was NOT caused by their product. Amazing.

    Updated on Aug 9, 2011

    Great software, horrible company. Don't ever think you will be able to transfer licenses to new or renewed computers. Software remains highly rated but support = zero stars.

    "Nothing great!"

    April 20, 2009  |   By kathirv

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.0.125

    Pros

    Nothing much to mention

    Cons

    This tool is highly priced and I am really disappointed to know that the tool expired 7 days before the actual date. I browsed my bank statements and now I am worried that my password might have been hacked...

    Summary

    This tool may be good but I have not had a chance to note the good things.

    "Great security system!"

    April 16, 2009  |   By buddypersonguy

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.0.125

    Pros

    It uses hardly any RAM and the support is good. I also like that they offer online courses. It fixed up my computer much faster and more efficiently than other internet security systems such as Nortan & McAfee. I also like its hourly updates!

    Cons

    I can't think of anything negative about it.

    Summary

    In this user's opinion, Kaspersky Internet Security is the best one out there. I love all of it's features including Online courses and hourly updates. I also love that it takes very little RAM to run. Other security systems took up way too much. Not to mention how efficient it is.

    "Not as good."

    February 14, 2009  |   By ChocoChips

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.0.125

    Pros

    - Strong firewall
    - Strong virus protection , updates mostly every hour

    Cons

    - False positives are outrageous
    - Virus removal barely works

    Summary

    I installed it in my computer and one day it caught a virus. When removing , the virus kept on coming back. And as time goes , more and more viruses came into my computer but Kaspersky couldn't remove it completely. Disappointed me though. However , Kaspersky 8 worked a lot better.

    "2 Years and no viruses, annoyware or problems!"

    February 7, 2009  |   By m3linko

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.0.125

    Pros

    -2 years and still no virus or spyware!
    -Nice interface and easily upgradable
    -Can actually be uninstalled!
    -Scans EVERYTHING that happens on your PC
    -Uses barely any system resources!
    -Always updated, updates download fast
    -Windows 7 stable!:)works!

    Cons

    -The email spam scanner is absolutely USELESS, my suggestion would be to just leave it off.
    -Honestly I can't think of any more :)

    Summary

    At first I was weary of Kaspersky because I had never heard of it but I stuck with the reviews and now I'm a loyal KIS customer....2 years running! KIS is great because it offers insanely good protection from everything without bogging down your system. KIS even blocked a few hacker attacks and IP scanners on my University's network and told me the IP of the person responsible, a little talk with the University IT department got him in deep. Like I said above, the email scanner is completely USELESS. Instead of blocking the messages it gives you a popup window asking if you want to view them, if you say "No" or "Yes", either way you still see them except they have a [SPAM] tag in front of them. If you need to open one of them it has to make a copy of the email and put it in your box....also marking it with the tag.....useless. B Who really needs an email scanner though? Just use your brain or Thunderbird and you'll be fine :) Overall this is the best Internet Security Suite I've ever used, hands down!

    "Subscribed for one year"

    January 28, 2009  |   By Anniekin2

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.0.125

    Pros

    Good AV functionality.

    Cons

    Not as good as they think they are.

    Summary

    KIS '07 provided good security for a year. I used it with Vista and although it slowed my system down a little, obviously because it has heuristic scanning, resource use was reasonable and I have not experienced any crashes or system failures, although it does NOT play nice with System Restore.

    I disagree with some of the other reviewers who say there is too much user intervention. I appreciate playing an integral role in what is going on in my PC.

    But I do agree with reviewer complaints that it is no longer a first rate security program, as well as the poor customer service. After a bad experience on their elitist support forums, attempting to discuss several security issues, I was responded to like the commoner ignorant fool that they must perceive the rest of us to be, and complaints to the company went unaddressed.

    Blacklisted keys are also an issue as they are commonly sold on eBay. But in the event of a customer problem where there is any possibility of a valid complaint the issue should be thoroughly investigated in favor of the customer. I think being top notch at one point has made them aggrogant towards their consumers.

    I don't know if this is the result of some kind of Russian / US rivalry, but I am happy to go with Avira AntiVir now.

    "Complete protection but nowhere near norton yet"

    January 19, 2009  |   By drunken-cobra

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.0.125

    Pros

    uses little ram, little hard disc space used up and uses one of the best antivirus engines ever

    Cons

    Not as small as Norton's version and not as practical as bitdefender's gamesafe. Also, i found out that you need to be a computer nerd to uninstall it completely instead of popups saying "Kaspersky cannot load up without the file KLicense.dat.

    ""Waist of Money""

    January 3, 2009  |   By freemanpd36

    Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.0.125

    Pros

    Nothing was good about this product.

    Cons

    This product did not detect two virus that two different free software's did.

    Summary

    I would recommend downloading AVG Antir-Virus Free and Comodo firewall protection.
