    "DO NOT BUY 0 Star Product"

    December 1, 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 8, 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 6, 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!

    "Not too bad..."

    February 26, 2013  |   By loverilakkuma

    Version: Kaspersky Pure 3.0 13.0.2.558

    Pros

    After installing this program, the environment of my pc is safer and cleaner.

    It takes long time to download and Install. Sometimes, it is not compatible with payment Plug-in unit or entertainment software.

    Summary

    Not so good and not too bad, just so so.
