Hello
This is my first post so hope I am doing it right.
I brought Kaspersky Anti-Virus 7.0 - 3 User License - 1 year protection - from The Works on Sunday - It was only £7.99. There is a sticker on box which says free upgrade to Version 2009. This seems to be an extremely good price. We haven't tried it yet but thought I should share.

I can take a picture of it but I don't know how to add pictures?

I have found that Kaspersky really slows the startup of my machine. I actually bought this deal last week from the works but after 3 days I changed back to the AVG free as it works much better. I did do a full scan and it didn't find anything so went back to AVG.

Does anyone know if this works with a Barclaycard credit card account?
#10
or barclays isa?
#11
Kaspersky , AVG and NOD32 are the best anti-virus software out there. At the moment I have NOD32 which was quite expensive.
At the given price im very tempted. Heat added
#12
It's only online banking accounts. I doubt the credit card will be in offer, don't know about the ISA account - log in online and see if you get the link.

Great tip, thanks! Repped!

I wouldn't run it on my own machine as I found it to be a dog compared to Eset, but it'll do for the family laptops...
#14
excellent price and imo the best av product you can buy.
really hot deal
#15
Very nice. Been thinking of getting rid of McAfee as it causes loads of crashes when paying online games.
#16
seems like the Kaspersky deal for barclays online banking is only available if you register your current account ?

im prepared to be proved wrong though.......
#17
Use Avast- free and really good

I Think Bit Defender could be worth adding to your list.

If you have a bank account with Barclays, you will have to sign up for online banking. That is the reason why they offer free security program so you're safe while your online banking.

I got my Kaspersky through them and installed on my laptop aswell. Decided to go for McAfee in the end which came with my Sky Broadband. McAfee have seriously made their programs less 'memory-eating.'

We have Kaspersky & it does my nut in! I'm always getting little pops up in the bottom right hand corner telling me that the database is out of date & needs updating. I wouldnt mind if it did it once a week, but its pretty much a nightly occurence!
#21
Is this anygood? been using Avast for the past few years with no problems although a little resource hungry while updating its definitions. Would be interested in seeing what could be better

Thx, voted hot btw!
#22
This is a VERY good price! Though in all honesty I would say stick with 7.0 and dont bother with 2009. You will get the same level of virus/trojan/malware detection, but having used Kaspersky since about V6, 2009 is a bit sluggish and when you try and run an exe for the first time, it can sometimes take about 2mins to actually start running it... VERY slow (and I have a Quad system with 4GB RAM).

V7 is so much faster and lighter on resources...

I got a 1 user license for 2009 on eBay for £5.50 about 3 months back, so £8 for three licenses is a very good price, and Kaspersky 7.0 is imo the best Security Suite on the market.

PS. AVG is good, but with the free version remember you get what you pay for. And you dont get the same level of protection at all. £8 for 3 users for a year is AWESOME.
#23
Any of the free antivirus offerings are just as good as the pay-for ones, if not better. It's not a case of "you get what you pay for" at all ... the free products are subsidised by the corporate/multi user licenses they charge companies for.

Google Avast/AVG comparisons/reviews and you'll find they are fine for home use ... and FREE!
#24
Anyone who pays ANYTHING for an antivirus is absolutely mental and just throwing money away.

I've studied computing, I know how viruses work, I know how antiviruses work, and I know that no-one needs to pay for one.

Absolutely stone cold deal. Get this instead, it's free and will be just as good.

With respect, this is junk. Pay-for solutions regularly beat free solutions hands down in comparitive reviews.

And thats where you show you really know nothing about AV products. :-(

Avira Antivir is heads above any AV product at the moment and considering you can get a free version theres no need to get anything else...

Have and look and tell me where Avira placed ;-)

If you've studied computing and know how viruses work you'll know that anti virus software is only as good as it's database of virus signatures. The main difference between the free and paid for solutions is the frequency of these updates - at the time of writing Kaspersky updated their definitions 2 hours ago. Free solutions are MUCH less frequent than this ergo you are more likely to succumb to new in the wild viruses as you know. If you are prepared to accept this risk then feel free to do so but please refrain from calling people that want the best protection 'mental'.

Also regarding the software you linked to some people would argue it's worth paying to avoid the huge nag screen this piece of software displays every time it updates. I'm one of them.

If you go into settings in Kaspersky (top right hand corner), on the left click 'notifications' under 'options', click 'settings' you can remove the tick box for 'critical notifications' - 'Databases are out of Date' screen appearance.

Yeah, thanks for patronising me. I'm fairly sure I know just as much as you, thanks. For every comparison, there's an alternative:

http://www.pcpro.co.uk/labs/160/security-suites/products.html

Let's see, how did the PAY-for version of AVG get on in that test..?

To be honest, I couldn't care less what you use - free or not, but to preach at people that they should NEVER buy an anti-virus/internet security product is just rubbish. I know that I'm getting a better overall solution by paying for it than I would otherwise.

Do you manually update yours, or is it set up to automatically update? If its manual, I recommend changing it to automatic...you won't get this pop up then.

Also have a look at what you're missing out on with the free v premium (it was the premium version that came out tops at av-comparatives) . Webguard, update frequency and spyware are pretty crucial IMHO. If I remember rightly only the premium version checks email properly - the free version waits until you try to run attachments before hopefully intercepting any virus which is not the best approach.
There is a reason why people pay for anti virus and this deal is a bargain. Voted Hot...
#31
I here am another one voting for Avast. I have been using the free home edition for several years now with absolutely no problems ( and I do like my rapidshare downloads!). In that time I did several free trials of commercially available anti-viruses and found that not only did they let things through that were then picked up when I re-enabled Avast but that they also slowed my system a lot.
Now, I'm no computing expert, but if something does the job and is free why pay?
#32
While I agree that this deal is good, it seems stupid that people disregard pretty much the best AV engine just because its available free. Its more than adequate for the majority of purposes (IMHO its relatively easy to figure out what kind of sites are dodgy and when to open email attachments without a program hand-holding me). Agreed though more updates are always better :). Ive always found Spybot far better for spyware stuff...

Indeed before I had Avira I didnt have a AV product on my PC and preferred to use online AV products every week (Kaspersky in fact)- I cant remember the last time I was infected (probably have to go back to the 90s)

Just checked the Derby Store - They have Kaspersky Anti-Virus 7.0 - 1User (Nothing Mentioned about free upgrade to 2009 ) for 7.99. The staff doesn't know about this deal . Don't know whether this was local to your The Works. Or the Deal is expired. Can anyone else check this in their Local The Works?

I can get 3 User license for 12.99 from ebay..just checked.

When did I advocate not having any AV product? It was worth patronising you because at the end of the day you were ignoring the product because it was free. Also the free version has exactly the same engine as the pay-for-version, just doesnt have the bells and whistles rubbish...

LOL at you comparing PC Pro to AV Comparatives - especially when the comparative reviews you rave about doesnt even list Avira AntiVir :p. Yep, I bow down to your better knowledge :whistling:

TBH Id rather have a nag screen rather than the numerous false-positives Kaspersky seems to like to pick up...

I find it important that an AV actually finds an infected file, not one that isnt...

Also I couldnt find any evidence that the free version is given less updates than the pay-for-version - Avira recommend at least a 24hr automatic update period for both...

You're making the ridiculous assumption that paid-for versions are 'the best' - they quite simply are not*. Anyone who has ever used Norton or McAfee will testify to this.

Free versions are almost always versions of a paid-for antivirus for businesses, but made available to the public for free. They are updated just as quickly as they use the same virus definition file.

Regarding the pop up advert, a few seconds of Googling will tell you how to stop it appearing. Here's a 10 second guide.

*Actually, there is one paid-for version which can claim to be the best - Nod32. But then how many people are going to have heard of this? Norton, McAfee and Kaspersky are just a complete rip off. And before you ask...yes, I've tried all 3, and virtually every piece of free software.

How do you know? What makes you qualified to know? Tell me what's better about something you've paid for. Doctors/Professors of Computing I've met think paying for such software is ridiculous, how can you know more them?

I don't care if it sounds patronising, if it comes over this way it's only because I know I'm right, otherwise I wouldn't say a thing.

I love mails like this, mate, Kasperksy is the doggies danglers, trust me I know, we just chose this as our Corporate product for the over £10BN Turnover organisation with over 15,000 desktop users and same number of home users that I manage, it beat all the others hands down, it was neck and neck with Symantec, however, the commercials were way different.

It takes resources up because it is actually protecting you! i.e. It;s doing something, things like AVG doesn't take resources up because it isn't fully protecting you, having Kaspersky on the home PC means you don't need additional products such as cleaners, firewalls (Like zone alarm or Comodo) or anything else like Ad Aware etc, so overall, you win.

The funniest one's I come across are the likes of e trust etc, users and IS guys say "It's a really light client" Answer, yes, there's a reason for this, it's doing **** all !

p.s PC Pro voted who the best, yes, Kaspersky!

p.p.s. If you do get a free upgrade, then this is a stonkingly good deal, well done to the finder.
