Kaspersky

My AV is due to expire and someone recommended Kaspersky. Done a search on here but the threads are a couple of years old and there's probably something else about.
Anyone used it? Good or Bad? I'm with Norton at the mo and the general opinion of users of that is to get rid. I've not had any dramas with it but then I've not used anything else.
Any tips appreciated.
 
Best free AVS is AVG

Best paid for AVG is NOD32

I wouldn't touch Norton due to the mahoosive footprint it imposes on your OS.

As a PC fcukwit what does that mean?
 
I use Kapersky on one of my laptops, I'm happy with it. It updates daily, blocks pretty much all the junk and runs smoothly with Vista. One small complaint is their customer support, not the best at getting back to you in coherent English.

JD, the footprint means that the software gets into other programs and installs files which take forever to find and delete.
 
Kaspersky is ok, I use it myself, gets annoying sometimes if you leave it in training/learning mode but has managed to keep the PC free from bugs so far

It means it uses up more resources to run the programme on your Operating System and slows it down.

I use Kapersky Internet Security 2008.
Works very well & is user friendly.

AVG is OK as a free one.
Avoid Norton or Mcafee as the hog system resources!

I like Kaspersky, havn't had any issues with viri since installing it. However i would recommend something like AdAware to mop up all the adware that you can get, it often picks up stuff that K doesn't.

I also use Ad-Aware, Spyware Blaster & A-Squared FREE.

I no longer recommend AVG either - bullies you into continuous updates and checks when there's no need.. sulks when you turn these off.

Avast & Zone Alarm Firewall do a very good job
 
Best free one:AVG
Best paid for:AVG,and I wouldn't use Kaspersky to wipe my arrse! :roll:

:wink:

Been using Kaspersky for three years now and it does the business, with much less memory soaked up than Norton.
