"I highly recommend this software"

September 29, 2010  |  By Angileling

 |  Version: Kingsoft Free Antivirus 2010.8.31.263

Pros

Free, I like the fact that all scanning is done without bugging me.

Cons

So far, so good; hope it doesn't change

Summary

Many friends recommended this free AV to me before, but for some particular reason or another I didn?t give it a shot. But recently, when my current AV upgrades it tries to charge for me for it. I was pissed. I decided to find some other free AV instead. Quite randomly I found kingsoft. When I used it for the first time, it detected FIVE worms on my system. My old AV was unable to do it. I?m surprised and impressed.
Anyway, I strongly recommend this AV! I?ll stick with Kingsoft as long as it's free.

"I'm suspicious of this program"

September 18, 2010  |  By lanquihue

 |  Version: Kingsoft Free Antivirus 2010.8.31.263

Pros

Not sure, I uninstalled it immediately.

Cons

Worthless unless you agree to make your computer vulnerable.

Summary

Looking for something that might be easier on resources than my current AV. I disabled the real time shields of my AV, but left Immunet Protect running. After installing Kingsoft, a window appears advising that I need to uninstall my current AV (which was inactive at the time) and Zone Alarm firewall before Kingsoft would operate correctly, and offered to do the uninstall for me. I didn't want to do that, and decided at that point to uninstall Kingsoft. Just about that time, Immunet Protect advised me that it had quarantined a W32.Crypt virus, which was within the KisliveSelf.DAT file within the newly created Kingsoft directory in Program Files. A false positive? Perhaps, but coming Immediately after nagging me to uninstall all of my security, I was in no mood for this AV product.

I also thought it was odd that hours after writing a not-so-glowing review, another five star review with a one line advertisement for this AV shows up. I know how this works, which is why I specifically omitted the name of my current AV product.
