K7 Total Security provides a number of powerful tools, allowing you to scan and protect your computer from security threats such as viruses, spyware, and more. With basic scanning tools, advanced cache and hard disk cleaning tools, and more, K7 provides not just basic protection, but a range of additional privacy tools for your desktop.
Strong core security tools: The base of K7 is its suite of security tools for scanning and removing viruses from your computer. These tools are updated frequently, and scans can be run manually or automatically while you work. The tools can also be set to scan downloads, check for problems with new software being installed, or block unauthorized access to the Internet.
Streamlined interface and quick response: The interface is compact and easy to maneuver, and it offers quick access to all of the other tools K7 offers, including disk cleaning tools, anti-spam filters, firewall settings, and more.
Can be heavy in the background: K7 can take up a decent amount of memory with its default setup. While many of the features causing this can be turned off, it's a lot of extra work, and the slowdown and extra steps required to deal with it can be frustrating.
K7 Total Security is comparable to many of the other big-name virus scanning and security tools on the market. It provides frequent, thorough updates, can automatically scan your computer, and offers a number of additional tools for security and privacy settings. While not free, it offers a good amount of features for the price and is a solid security and privacy tool.
