Winner Best software in 2014 - Antivirus.

Overview

Kaspersky Labs are celebrated for their security solutions and the Kaspersky Anti-Virus is their latest offering. The newest version continues the legacy of providing a powerful protection against viruses and malware. As a result, Kaspersky is considered to be one of the best antivirus solutions on the market. It boasts a lot of features that will help you surf the web in a safely manner. Find out more about this excellent security solution in this review.

Installation

Available as both a box copy as well as a software product that you can download online, Kaspersky benefits from a fast and smooth installation process that doesn’t require a restart. But here’s comes the fun fact. What if you own an infested system and as a result, you can’t download and install the antivirus? The option to download a specialized tool used to preemptively scan your PC is presented to you. The threat will be removed and a clean installation will follow next. Kaspersky works on all the available versions of Windows from XP onwards and it doesn’t come bundled with adware/spyware or other programs.

Interface

Designed to be simple to use, Kaspersky won’t intimidate the novice users, despite being packed with advanced features. Both laid-back users who simply need protection without constant supervision as well as advanced users who desire intensive controls will enjoy using Kaspersky. The user-friendly and organized interface features a color-coded graphic. Thus, you always know your security status. Just set your preferences and let Kaspersky work in the background for your protection!

Pros

Kaspersky automatically detects and removes all types of viruses and malware threats. All forms of malware are detected, prevented and removed. You will be protected from both traditional viruses as well as unknown threats due to an advanced technology implemented in Kaspersky. While surfing the web, users are protected by the Kaspersky URL Advisor. Phishing scams and infected websites are a thing of the past with this browser plugin that’s available for IE and Firefox. The proprietary iChecker and iSwift scanning technologies are also utilized by Kaspersky. Thus, your system’s performance will not be damaged while the antivirus goes around on its business. The files that have been opened or changed since the last scan are identified by iChecker and as a result, the scans are faster. Other features of Kaspersky are the virtual mode that’s incredibly useful and the gamer mode. The virtual mode offers you a digital keyboard that you can use for typing in sensitive information such as a credit bank number. Key loggers and keystroke recognition malware are avoided. Full-screen video games (or movies) without any interruptions are provided by the gamer mode.

Cons

The antispam tool doesn’t always work as it should and more spam messages than you would expect might arrive in your Inbox.

Alternatives

Let’s have a look at some of the Kaspersky’s alternatives. These tools include: Microsoft Security Essentials, Avira AntiVir Personal, AVG Anti-Virus, Eset NOD32, ClamAV and many more.

Conclusion

Kaspersky Anti-Virus is one of the best antivirus solutions out there despite the strong competition from this niche of software products. I always feel that when it comes to security solutions, it’s always an user’s preference that matters, provided that you choose from the top level of the antivirus section, so try Kaspersky Today to see if it catches your fancy!
