I'm using Kaspersky as well. AV Comparatives ranks it very high, and my personal experience is I would agree with you and AV Comparatives, it's been rock solid for me.

Yes well I have been KIS for the last four years too and it is not infallible and I run these regularly too if I suspect anything (I also run MBAM pro)

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

ADW download frombleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans

I also like this for the more dug in stuff Download Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10

Like it was m\mentioned a while back and I have alway said security is at the end of yours or a users finger tips because no AV bar none is fully secure.

yes, that's why you are using MBAM ( and also ADW Cleaner ) in presence of KIS which also claiming to fight Malware and other threats.

nice tip, will also buy MBAM pro for max ( not complete ) security.

Thats ok Ghulam mate this is what this forum is all about and there are many more members who are far more adept and skilled at computing than I will ever be.
I have computing as a hobby and in readiness for my retirement and find it plainly relaxing more than anything.

hey all, i have to agree the best protection is the one sitting in front of the keyboard. like many I have tried a lot of the different free antivirus and kept the ones that work best for my web habits. yes none are bullet proof not even the paid ones. any virus that I ever caught was because I opened something up and bam there it was. yeah safe web habits is a must. poorguy
