Kingsoft Free Antivirus
Full user review
"I'm suspicious of this program"
Not sure, I uninstalled it immediately.
Worthless unless you agree to make your computer vulnerable.
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.
