Editors' Review


The 2016 version of Kaspersky's most comprehensive antimalware suite adds protection for your browser settings and helps protect against the installation of unwanted software.


One of the best detection engines around: Kaspersky's virus and malware scanner is fast and extremely accurate, and it doesn't bog your system down.

Browser protection: Kaspersky can help protect your browser from unwanted changes, such as malware attempting to change your start page or cookie settings.

Blocking unwanted software: Some programs may bundle other unwanted apps during installation that can do questionable things in Windows, and now Kaspersky can help filter the bad stuff out.

Lots of explanation available: The app doesn't rely on buzzwords to convince you that it's performing important functions. Total Security's functions are explained in the client and sometimes on a supplementary support page on Kaspersky's website.

Control scan settings: If you like to control how and when your security app scans your computer, you'll find a high degree of customization available in the scanner settings. Or you can just let Total Security do its thing.


Vulnerability scanner needs more info: In a few cases in our tests, clicking the Details button in the vulnerability scanner's results just pointed us to the front page of or (a company-run security news website), rather than leading us to an explanation of the specific issue.

Digital Asset Protection is usually done better elsewhere: The tools specific to the Total Security version of Kaspersky are nice to have, but there are third-party tools that frequently do the job better, and they don't become inaccessible if you let your Kaspersky subscription lapse. For example, LastPass and Dashlane have more functionality than Total Security's password manager. Total Security's online data backup integration is limited to Dropbox, whereas we would recommend something more secure, like SOS Online Backup. And CCleaner is a more informative junk-file deleter.

Bottom Line

Kaspersky Total Security is one of the most robust, informative, and configurable antimalware suites on the market. However, most users should be fine with the less expensive Internet Security version, opting to use dedicated third-party products for things like password security and online data backup.

"It had a great review from Which? magazine in the UK"

October 21, 2015

 |  Version: Kaspersky Total Security 2016


It appears to work well, once some initial niggles were sorted out
I found the support very good and helpful but they haven't been able to sort out my problem with Safe Money, which I have disabled because it is such a pain! More anon.....


Safe Money & IE, it always goes to IE, so apparently isn't compatible with Edge, not that I use it. I use Opera and it isn't compatible with that, nor is it likely to be in the forseeable future.


Safe money and the online keyboard are a total nightmare. Every time I typed a letter, using both the online keyboard & my physical jeyboard, 2 asterisks appeared. I have no idea why, or how to correct it. I spoke to Kaspersky at length & they wanted me to send files to them. I am not prepared to send them files from my computer, or let them have access to my computer. I don't know who I am sending this info to. I have disabled it.
I also bought a physical disc, which was out of date when I bought it, even though it said it was 2016. That was my first call to Kaspersky, they emailed me the up to date version and I had to uninstall the version I had bought in a store.
When this current version expires, I will return to Comodo. I had never had any problems with Comodo & found it to be an excellent program - hassle free!
