Windows 7: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011

27 Jul 2011   #1

 
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011

Since TrendMicro turned out not to play well in 64 bit (at least on MY new system) I'm looking for a more capable replacement than MSE. Kaspersky is rated pretty highly.
what's SevenForums opinion on Kaspersky?

Been using Avira Antivirus Free edition for years now and have yet to be infected with anything since I started using it. There certainly have been attempts, but nothing has been successful. It has a very good heuristic engine.

Kaspersky and PC Tools appear to be the top 2 choices by a half hours intense research. hehe.

I was chattin' with the fellow in the local PC shop recently and mentioned the I'd never been infected w/anything using the Trend Micro. He sez...' that you know of ' ponder that.... lulz

LOL..so..i see there's no consensus among 7forums ppl. I guess that answers my specific question. Not gonna get out of having to do the research myself here.

Instead of the 2011 version, go with the 2012 update, either anti-virus or internet security. I've been using Kaspersky for about two years now and never had any infections or stds of such matter.

The 2012 version performs WAY better than 2011, it's less system intensive than ever!

I use KIS 2012 (patches A and B) and it works great, less resource intensive, and is stable under windows 7. I also run Immunet Protect 3.0.2, Secunia PSI 2.0, and I have SNORT 2.9.0.5 running in OpenSUSE 11.4 under VirtualBox which is monitoring all the inbound and outbound traffic on my home network (thanks to my Buffalo WHR-G54S running DD-WRT v2.4 pre SP2 (Build 14929).

i've also been using the full kaspersky internet security suite happily for years (although i did have a brief flirtation with mse for a month or two), and have had no malware trouble yet.

it has served me well, and the latest 2012 version is the best yet.

however, the only way to find out if you like it is to test it yourself - they have a 30 day trial.

FYI, for those users of KIS 2012, patch 'C' has been released for general consumption. It will require a reboot after being pulled down from the regular update servers.

Issues fixed - Scans of some SSL encrypted sites wasn't working, high CPU usage when visiting some URL's, and optimization fixes as well.

BitDefender: Internet Security Suite 2011 was tops in this test. Kaspersky was in the top 5.
