Pros - Nice overall design, although I like the user interface of v2009 better than 2011
- Ease of use
- Runs in the background without bogging down your machine
Cons - Uncertainty regarding what to do after a virus scan and the report details several threats have been detected.
Summary Good product, although it's probably one of the more expensive units on the market. I am not sure how it compares to other suites $20 and $30 cheaper. I like the way the UI looks, and the way it's laid out is very user friendly. Nightly virus updates keep the database fresh, which is also cool. I'd buy it again but I find myself looking at what's on the market first. My hard drive crashed about 4 months ago and I could not revive it. I was running Kaspersky 2009. It is not clear whether a virus or something else infected my machine and slowly killed the hard drive, or the hard drive just malfunctioned due to age or whatever. Regarding uncertainty as to what to do after a virus scan when the report details several threats have been detected, I seem to want to instinctively click a "get rid of the virus" button, but there is no such thing to be found. Is "quarantined" as safe as getting it off the machine entirely? I've had Kaspersky 2009 for 2 years now and never quite could figure out what to do just after a virus scan when it catches threats. If someone cares to enlighten me within this forum I'd be delighted.
Pros The program does a good job of filtering, definitions are updated frequently.
Cons updates take 29 - 39 minutes to dowload on a high speed connection, during which time your system suffers from slowdown.
Summary Products would be fantastic if footprint were smaller and updates didnt take an eturnity to download.
"very s-l-o-w"on by mbells5
Pros Seems to detect viruses well.
Hard to get a log of fixed problems.
It made wierd things slow, like opening a new tab to a blank internet page in Internet Explorer.
Summary Installing this pushed me to buy a new computer. I'm not sure i want to install it on this given how much it slowed down the first one and i only have 4 cores on this one.
Pros when working properly it doesn't hog resources and does an adequate job catching viruses
Cons Kaspersky occasionally puts out bad updates that kill server performance. They fail to notify users and only release the fixes when you call their tech support.
Summary Good for home use. Be careful about using for mission critical business servers. It would be nice if they were a little more proactive. I'm beginning to realize they are probably not ready to play in the enterprise space and belong strictly in the consumer market.
