"Awful, allowed malware on day one"

December 04, 2014  |  By patrick_omalley

 |  Version: Kaspersky Pure 3.0 13.0.2.558

Pros

Couldn't find any pros - software is awful ma support is worse

Cons

Kaspersky "Total Protection" is awful.

I've had it 24 hours, and tried to install FIlezilla, which now comes with malware that prevents you from using Google!!

I spent over an hour with 3 incompetent Kaspersky support techs on the phone, and they finally said to send them a log from one of their programs, and they'd get back to me in 24-48 hours.

UN-BE-LIEV-A-BLE.

Summary

Kaspersky is a ridiculous waste of money, and time

"Don't buy! Get Kaspersky Internet Security."

November 25, 2014

 |  Version: Kaspersky Pure 3.0 13.0.2.558

Pros

Anti-virus is the best.

Cons

Password Manager is BROKEN! The only reason to get Pure over Kaspersky Internet Security.

Summary

Product sucks, get internet security. Password Manager only reason to get pure doesn't work with Chrome, works with IE if on normal display. Firefox work's well with Password manager, but won't work with safe money.

Kaspersky Internet Security is their only product worth buying. You'd think the basic Anti-virus would be worth it, but it's either on or off and you can't configure it's firewall. Now KIS is a good product and one of the best Virus Protection products out there. Just don't buy AV or Pure 3.0.

"Don't Buy this product it is so bad, waste of money"

August 13, 2014  |  By troy9555

 |  Version: Kaspersky Pure 3.0 13.0.2.558

Pros

Stops virus by making your computer unable to access internet, applications, programs. Even just internet explorer, firefox, chrome.

Cons

This is on a brand new computer
Computer performance went way down.
Tried all the functionalities and options still does not let me do things on my computer and everything takes soo much longer to load.
only thing that helped was uninstalling the software, closing and pausing didn't help computer performance.
Called customer service they couldn't help and they failed to follow up.
Regret buying this product for 70$

Summary

Waste of money. Buy AVG instead

"DO NOT BUY 0 Star Product"

December 01, 2013  |  By alan51462

 |  Version: Kaspersky Pure 3.0 13.0.2.558

Pros

Unable to install so no pros

Cons

Program froze computer when I tried to activate it. Technical Support recommended several fixes which only made my HP PC inoperable, it no longer will recognize the PC keyboard. Tech support keeps sending e-mails with ways to fix problem which only make matters worse.

Summary

DO NOT BUY - check out reported problems with this product before making the mistake of buying. I had been a happy Kaspersky user for many years - BUT NO MORE. Tell Kaspersky NEVERMORE!!!

"Did horribly on my computer."

August 08, 2013  |  By SmartGuyForComputers

 |  Version: Kaspersky Pure 3.0 13.0.2.558

Pros

-Application control was a good feature.

Cons

-Sluggish
-Added way much time to booting
-Horrible with gaming
-Transmits data back to Russian servers
-Kaspersky is owned by a Russian company

Summary

Do not use. Use Norton 360 or hech even BitDefender Total Security. Kaspersky did not do its job and the fact that it transmits data back to Russian servers means I do not want it on my computer. It is too easy for the Russian government (since it isn't a REAL democracy) to seize those servers and get all the data from Kaspersky's buyers.

"Its good Lots Of Extras."

June 28, 2013  |  By TECHCRZY

 |  Version: Kaspersky Pure 3.0 13.0.2.558

Pros

Lots Of Extras Very Good Program. Some Trolls On Here Calling It Malware? lol Where Is The Malware? Silly Trolls TROLLING. I've Installed uninstalled On Win vista,7,8. Never Ever Had Problem. I Believe That these Noobish Morons Try These Programs When They Already Have Malware Issues Before They Install.

Cons

None That I know Of.

Summary

Best I Have Tried So Far.

"DANGER! IT'S A VIRUS! DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!"

May 24, 2013  |  By TwistedTwerp

 |  Version: Kaspersky Pure 3.0 13.0.2.558

Pros

None, it's malware, do not use

Cons

Unless you are an experienced software engineer you will NOT be able to remove Kaspersky from your computer. If you use Windows to Uninstall, Kaspersky lays eggs that upon rebooting hatch and reinstall the software all by itself. That folks IS the definition of MalWare/Viruses.

"BECAREFUL!!!!!!"

May 21, 2013  |  By jr46b

 |  Version: Kaspersky Pure 3.0 13.0.2.558

Pros

It works. BUT
I downloaded a copy of this on C-NET. I checked it out for 3 days Then I paid for the Kaspersky Pure 3.0 for a year the next day I paid for the next higher version. It did slow my system down I just figure it was settling in to my computer. Boy WAS I WRONG!!

Cons

When opening my computer it would take between a minute to two minutes where I can finally use my computer. I can say the software seemed to work. Everything worked as stated. But it seems to get slower every time I opened the computer. OH, I also bought the Malware software that week.
Well I tried it for 6 1/2 months. I deleted everything. It took me over an hour to get everything removed. Since I did the delete I have had several problems with my computer. I have had two techs working 8 hours on it. Finally yesterday it is fixed. They said I had several programs that had pieces missing. I think the software might have done the damaged BUT I'm not suppose say that, so disregard that last sentence.
I FINALLY got a hold of IObit. I asked for a refund because had spent over a $100 on their software and it DID NOT work.
GUESS WHAT they have no record of me buying their software.
SO NO REFUND!!
TIPICAL FOR ONLINE COMPANIES

Summary

BECAREFUL who you buy software from and CHECK THEM OUT!!!!!!!
I did and I still got stuck, so be careful

"Buy at your own risk"

May 06, 2013  |  By kamikazeturtle

 |  Version: Kaspersky Pure 3.0 13.0.2.558

Pros

Can't really say.

Cons

I'd used Kaspersky before and had no problems so I decided to buy this version. When I entered the activation code they gave me it said I had less than a month left. They recognized their error they emailed me a new code. When I entered it the message said it had already expired. I tried emailing them and have yet to receive no response. Now I have no protection and doubt I'll ever use them again.

Summary

I'm not saying never use Kaspersky but I'd like to warn people in case this could possibly happen to them.

"Greatly Improved from PURE 2.0"

March 10, 2013  |  By zeroday1

 |  Version: Kaspersky Pure 3.0 13.0.2.558

Pros

It's obvious that Pure 2.0 had some very serious database update issues which inevitably plagued that build and caused Kaspersky to release 3.0 and it certainly seems that Pure 3.0 has addressed these issues.

Kaspersky Pure 3.0 also seems to be more stable generally speaking.

Cons

The interface and help descriptions need much improvement for they certainly aren't designed to be user friendly, to say the least...and in fact do more to confuse the average end-user, rather than to offer comprehensive descriptions using proper grammatical context, so as not to leave up to interpretation the intricate settings that need to be clearly understood by the user in order to be configured correctly.

Summary

Bottom Line...Kaspersky offers some of the best security solutions available to date and should not be overlooked simply because of its lack of a non-user friendly interface and of understandable help descriptions.

Kaspersky is rated among the top 5 on "av-test.org" and certainly is ahead of the competition in many ways.

If you are looking for comprehensive protection with advanced features and settings...then Kaspersky is the way to go!
