    "Between the four best ones"

    November 18, 2012  |   By TOMW17

    Pros

    Easy to use, hitting SHIFT+F12 the interface changes to English from any other languages.
    Good virus protection and firewall. overall good performance.

    Cons

    Uploads very slowly, 3 minutes after the internet connection is active, leaving the PC without protection.
    --
    Too many minor issues of malfunctioning, e.g. vulnerability scan count shows 10 vulnerabilities while the detailed list has only 9.
    --
    Technical support is useless while user's forums are capable to solve most of the problem. Shame on you Kaspersky.
    --
    The worst of all, Kaspersky simply disregard the problems, especially the slow startup issue however they are knowledgeable about them, responds with corporate arrogance.
    Shame.

    Summary

    Apart from the many of the minor, and one serious issues of the low startup, KIS 2013 is a fairly good protection, however Kaspersky ignorant and arrogant approach and useless technical support makes me think about choosing other Security software.
