Editors' Review

+

Kingsoft Internet Security 9 Plus provides an impressive display of security measures. Though there's something here for practically everyone, many users will feel overwhelmed by its breadth and complexity.

The program includes tons of functions and options, but its interface is easy to understand and navigate, with a professional layout and an intuitive command structure. If there's a criticism that can be leveled, it's that the program actually offers too many quality options, which can be overwhelming to some users. You can set up a firewall, scan with an antivirus tool, and seek out spyware with three separate programs. Each of these did a nice job of sniffing out security leaks; however, each one also offered a variety of features for each function, such as the antivirus feature's confusing options to scan files, scan the computer, and scan critical areas, which should have been condensed to one command. These features are useful but will mostly appeal to those who are highly knowledgeable about security. The average user will probably not know where to begin or how often to schedule each option and will probably be better off with a simpler all-in-one scanner. For those willing to wade through the choices, though, it's a great tool.

Kingsoft Internet Security 9 Plus has a 90-day trial limit. It installs desktop icons without permission. Though its overwhelming options will turn some off, the program is a massively helpful tool that we still recommend for those with patience and a little experience.

"This IS the best I have found to deal with my hacker!"

April 16, 2010  |  By bfann2

 |  Version: Kingsoft Internet Security 9 Plus 2009.04.14.59

Pros

I had a cracker-----he ran thru Avast, Avira, PC-Cill, McA,AVG,NORT, etc. like butter, would change SYS p/w, Admin P/w, building (invisible 2 me) subsystem & use my sys as server. I restored/recovered, useless.
Kingsoft stopped him cold, it appears.

Cons

Hard to think of a THING. It was easy interface, LOTS of useful tools, very light footprint (scan barely dints downloads).
OH yeah, it was too hard to FIND OUT about this product OR to find it on download.cnet.com. CNET's search sucks <sorry guys>

Summary

I BELIEVE THIS SOFTWARE IS THE BEST SECURITY ON THE MARKET TODAY. OFFERS A FULL 90-DAY-TRIAL PERIOD.
I'm NOT a geek, was forced to learn stuff to combat a PERSISTENT cracker. In addition to trying ALL (and I do mean ALL..I"M stubborn when I get pissed off) the other security software, (free and not) that folded on me, I even used Belarc Advisor, arduously adjusted security settings to lock him out-nothing worked. He slipped thru like butter. BUT KINGSOFT knows something he doesn't. And the feature of analyzing and updating VULNERABILITIES is fast and sure.
(The cracker's rigging prevented a lot of MS security updates from installing. I think he CRACKED THE wualt.EXE function and might have even USED it to do "automatic security downloads" icon to infiltrate...I would see 3 and 4 icons at a time in the taskbar and the updates would disappear, be uninstalled mysteriously)
The "Fix Vulnerabilities" tool is even faster than updating via Microsoft website.
Kingsoft detected a hidden autorun.inf right off the bat-- I guess that was his builtin restore of any changes I made--and deleted it.
(My Event viewer reflected restores I didn't do, deleted files abruptly reappeared).
I am SO impressed! I just hope the hacker/cracker can't crack this one !
:::hands folded in prayer::::
YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU TRIED THIS if you have had similar problems or just want to feel safer. I thought about it a while and realized it makes sense that, because so many people use the free software security programs, those programs would be prime targets for de-construction so crackers could get bypass them.
oh yeah,
Clamwin (a standalone AV which was pretty good at finding 'ordinary viruses") assessed a (evidently) false-positive when I scanned the Kingsoft downloader & setup file , reporting a "Boot.TPV.1" virus in the setup. I couldn't find any info on this virus online, so I was so desperate that after Googling the reliability of KINGSOFT and finding no negatives, I decided to install it anyway.
I'm SOO glad I did. I am in awe.
:::hands folded in prayer and supplication:::
Here's hoping he can't crack this one...because he trashed two other computers of mine, which are lovely paperweights...
DO yourself a favor. Download it NOW.

"Does not slow down machine"

 |  Version: Kingsoft Internet Security 9 Plus 2009.04.14.59

Pros

Very low system resources is taken, perfect for netbooks.

Cons

Missing 64 bit support in current version. I hope next year version will fix this.

Summary

I switched from AVG to Kingsoft Internet Securiry and my machine is twice faster then before. I highly recommend this for any gamer, netbooks user or older systems. AV comparatives gave it the maximun three stars and rated it as second fastest antivirus software out there in December test.
