This internet defence program is a great all round product featuring anti virus, mail protection, web surfing protection and a firewall. In terms of performance the anti vrius scan is fast and thorough. This company achieves very good detection ratings when officially tested. The application warnings are not very intrusive and it is quite easy and straightforward to set up. The program uses a reasonably low amount of RAM and doesn't consume much CPU power, a bonus in today's power RAM hungry application environment. KIS also offers very frequent database updates available almost hourly if required. The firewall has protected my PC fully from web based attacks providing peace of mind for shopping or banking tasks. I have not had any malware infections since installing this product and in my opinion this product is strong protection for a PC especially as part of an overall strategy. The KIS2009 program is a solid layer of protection.
Even if you can get a trial or magazine cover disc version of this application I recommend to try it. Ideally the latest 2010 version would be even better.
I received this anti-virus software as a bonus when buying another item. It has been very useful in keeping my pc safe from viruses and attacks. My previous anti-virus software (which I won't name here) slowed my pc down which made simple tasks take a long time. With Kaspersky the pc continued to run at a decent speed. The checker you run when you first load up the software actually picked up a number of threats to the pc that the previous virus checker missed. There is also a useful parental function to prevent children from accessing unsuitable websites. Generally, this software has been very good and tends to run in the background without too many disruptions. One slight downfall was that it picked up a pc game I inserted as a security check. When the option was asked I accidentally clicked that it should be blocked. From there it was impossible to use the game again - eventually I had to fully uninstall it and re-install it. At least the option was given but beware that your final answer on the questions it provides cannot be changed. Overall, a very good piece of software to protect your pc. I have had no problems with it so far at all. There is also a download update which can be accessed in the first year to keep virus definitions up to date (pretty standard stuff but always good to have).
