"bad heuristics-NOD32/Avira a better choice"2.5 starson by gibbons47
Pros: fast updates
Cons: poor heuristics
Summary: Kaspersky does well after the fact and updates known malware definitions faster than anyone. However, a greater threat to many users is unknown viruses and variants. If you look at AV-Comparatives, you will see that Kaspersky in the most recent Retrospective/Proactive test detected only 9% of unseen samples. This is right near the bottom of the list as compared to 16 others. You are much better off with NOD32 or Avira-that have powerful heuristics.
