Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 was only £7.99 in my local The Works cheap bookshop type place in Bromley. Just for comparison Kaspersky Anti-virus is £29.99 in Marks and Spencer and that is for 1 user. The Works Internet security is for 3 users.
Bargain and when it is installed it updates itself to the most recent version!

Cheap way of getting KIS2010 is to buy this then download the 2010 software from their website and use the code in the 2010 software...worked a treat for me! :-D
#2
They have to make a good product in Russia 'cos that's where most of the
dodgy emails and viruses originate from.
Voted hot, good deal.

then you're very wrong and need to do some research into how much protection AVG free actually offers.

Not wanting to upset any one, but "very wrong"? I followed your link and the document starts by saying that all the products in the review are good as they have to be of a high standard to be considered!

I have used AVG, Avast, Avira and never had a detection problem with any.

:-D

I agree with the money saving angle, but not using MS software, particularly their new Security Essentials, if thats the software you mean. When you install this software you join the MS Spynet service automatically and you cannot opt-out. This is the default setting in the software.

Ostensibly this Spynet service shares info about malcious softwre between users, so sounds like a good idea. Although this means sending information about the software on your computer to Microsoft servers. Thats something many computer users don't want to do.

I suggest using free anti-virus, together with the built in firewall, and ensuring NAT and firewall are enabled on your router. If you want extra security use the many highly rated, and effective, free malware scanners such as Spybot Serach and Destroy, Ad-aware and Rootkit Revealer.

Just phoned at reserved two at my local store. Great price for rock solid protection.

Thanks to OP - H&R added.

Lots of nonsense being said here. I use Free Antivirus and Firewall products, they work just as well as any paid for software.

It shares information on software with Microsoft in an anonymous format. Software installation within its own right does not invade privacy and even if it did the fact that they aren't storing who sent in which reports adds further protection to the consumer.

Or to quote Microsoft:
[CENTER]"file names, cryptographic hash, vendor, size, and date stamps. In addition, Microsoft SpyNet might collect full URLs to indicate the origin of the file, which might occasionally contain personal information such as search terms or data entered in forms. Reports might also include the actions that you applied when Microsoft Security Essentials notified you that software was detected. Microsoft SpyNet reports include this information to help Microsoft gauge the effectiveness of Microsoft Security Essentials' ability to detect and remove malicious and potentially unwanted software."[/CENTER]

Microsoft's Security Essentials is free, protects against Virus, Spyware, and with the addition of the firewall in XP, Vista, and 7 you never need to pay another penny to keep your system safe.

Which one??? you may need to check with proper antivirus, you never know what you have inside computer, maybe someone already collecting your private data :-D:-D:-D

My understanding (and that of the review quoted earlier) is that Avast and Microsoft are the best of the free packages and that they are similar in effectiveness to most paid for packages. The idea that paying for AV guarantees anything is unfortunately mistaken.
#25
ah, I didnt know that. Will keep that in mind, cheers.
#26
I just wanted to advise people who are using the free antivirus that you really do only get what you pay for. I ran three machines, all XP, one with McAfee, one with Norton and one with AVG. Which one was hacked....the AVG one of course.

Maybe because they don't detect the viruses and hence don't tell you about them you think that they're working fine.

I'll never trust any of the Antivirus freebies after the experience I had with Avast.

How many times is this particular deal going to get posted? At least 3 times in the last 3 weeks.:roll:

I just want to advise people that faulty cause and effect analysis can lead to the wrong conclusions.

dont bother with the free internet securities, their useless and slow down your computer.

kaspersky is the best and worth every penny.
#32
I used to think that KAV was best, but it seems not - Norton seems to have pulled up a fair bit. Using this licence with 2010 does work (always).

Anyone know if Norton allow 2009 licences to upgrade to 2010 for free?
#33
I paid £24 for this last year! and that was half price.

I went and bought four of 'em.

Cheers OP!

AVG free is NOT an internet security suite, just a very average anti-virus programme. Put something decent on your PC, do a scan and see for yourself how poor AVG is by how many infections you've got! AVG fanboys seriously need to stop fooling themselves!

Yes it does and it's a first rate suite.

And every action has a consequence and not protecting your computer with a good product is asking for problems. Any good IT person will advise you to stay clear of the free antivirus programs and with this price there is really no reason not to have a decent product.

So just to confirm, you can upgrade this to 2010 free of charge?

Correct. Install the 2010 demo, when prompted enter your 2009 license key for a 12month subscription.

Hi Unoringinal Guy, to respond to your comment on my post about Microsoft Security Essentials and SpyNet.

UnoriginalGuy
It shares information on software with Microsoft in an anonymous format. Software installation within its own right does not invade privacy and even if it did the fact that they aren't storing who sent in which reports adds further protection to the consumer.


1) SpyNet does not share information in an anonymous format.

From the Microsoft Security Essentials Privacy Statement:

Microsoft SpyNet reports include information about the files or programs in question, such as file names, cryptographic hash, vendor, size, and date stamps. In addition, Microsoft SpyNet might collect full URLs to indicate the origin of the file, which might occasionally contain personal information such as search terms or data entered in forms. Reports might also include the actions that you applied when Microsoft Security Essentials notified you that software was detected.


Interesting that Microsoft collect your cryptographic hashs, these would usually be passwords and keys. I'm not sure why they would be necessary to identifiy malicious software. Also the word "anonymous" does not appear anywhere in the privacy policy, quite the opposite, Microsoft Security Essentials collects information about your hardware, software, and your IP address:

From the Microsoft Security Essentials Privacy Statement:

This software contains Internet-enabled features that collect certain standard information from your computer ("standard computer information") and send it to Microsoft. Standard computer information includes certain information about your computer software and hardware, such as your IP address, operating system, Web browser software, and version. The privacy details for each Microsoft Security Essentials feature listed in this privacy statement disclose what additional information is collected and how it is used.


2) The software installation itself does invade privacy, because its not made clear that Spynet enrolment is mandatory during installation. Also once installed, you cannot opt-out of SpyNet. In addition the MS Security Essentials software itself collects all the above information as well.

3) You said "... the fact that they aren't storing who sent in which reports adds further protection to the consumer." Sorry, this is just not accurate, the privacy policy for Microsoft Security Essentials and SpyNet clearly states, Microsoft collect and store, your personal information:

From the Microsoft Security Essentials Privacy Statement:

Information that is collected by or sent to Microsoft may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Microsoft or its affiliates, subsidiaries, or service providers maintain facilities.


In the case of Microsoft SpyNet, by accepting this privacy statement, you agree to send reports to Microsoft (see below). The personal information that we collect from you will be used by Microsoft and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates ....


Microsoft have a Security Essentials forum for users to ask questions. One user asked "How do I disable SpyNet?":

Under Settings->Microsoft Spynet, I found Basic and Advanced membership.
Where is the disable membership option? Or do I have to allow MS Security team to 'Spy' on me to use this product?


The answer they got from a MS expert was revealing:
There is no disable option. To use MSE, yes, your system must be communicating at least basic information about detections with the Microsoft servers. Check out the privacy statement at the bottom of the settings for Spynet to see what that information is - there is no "spying" on you.
