Saw this & thought it may help someone. I believe tekheads are Sheffield, so sub £20 for 5 machines if you live there! No longer the best, but still very good & at a great price. I know there was the Works deal, but I've never had a sniff of their KIS/KAV deals.

The current version is Kaspersky 2010. You can indeed upgrade from 2009 to 2010 free of charge, but surprise surprise Kaspersky 2011 is due anytime soon, and you won't be able to upgrade from 2009 to 2011 (even via 2010). So cold for me...

You can also get the 3 user version of 2009 for half that price from 'The Works' (or buy two and get 6 user :) )

So what is the best then? - I've been using kaspersky for a few years and have noticed the more recent versions to be less user friendly and harder to navigate - seems to slow my startup times much more than it used to - having gone a day or so with windows 7 with no av installed it seemed to labour it quite a bit when I loaded up KIS2010. I'll gladly try any other programs at the moment that can let me run things a bit faster.

First of all, you can get Kaspersky Internet security for free (forever) if you open a Barclays savings account with £1.

If you feel Kaspersky slows down your computer, try
- Avast Anti Virus - free
- Commodo Firewall (or ZoneAlarm) - both free
- Spybot Search & Destroy - free
- Lavasoft Adaware - free
- CCleaner - free

With this combination you should be well protected for free. There will be ppl telling you the free editions are no good but you just have to ignore them or purchase the paid-for editions of the same software.

IWe all have been using these for years and had the occational malware slipping through, but you will get this with any security program, paid for or not. There is no 100% protection.

You could buy Windows 7 Pro for £20 more and you get free MS Security Essentials which is constantly updated.

I've read that other companies like Symantec Norton AntiVirus didn't like MS giving away free anti-virus software and said that it wouldn't be so good.

It's MS's operating system and they would know more about it than anyone else.

It doesn't slow you PC down like Norton does.

Thanks for the suggestion - I'm not bothered about paying for something as long as it does a decent job - I hear NOD32 mentioned the odd time but haven't looked into it much - If anybody reading this thread has a good bit of experience with it let us know if you notice any slow downs when its running - my love of kaspersky is dwindling - I cant tell for sure but either KIS2010 or windows 7 removed/hid/ate my not entirely legit software programs downloaded from a certain bay - I have no idea where they went - only a readme file left in the download folder:?

just in case anyones interested in the kaspersky deal, if you live near hinckley or nuneaton then it can be got much cheaper. in hinckley the magazine market stall on mondays and saturdays has the 5 user pack for £5 ! i have used one and its all fine. also nuneaton market has another stall on weds and sats, but that was £6 i believe. so if your local and want some cheap protection then its a bargain.

NOD32 is very good but not the easiest to operate.

As to your download, what may have happened is that your security software has identified the download as a threat to your system and either deleted or moved it into a holding area sometimes called "security chest". When this happens it is called a "false positive" and can happen with the best security software. Check the security area of Kaspersky, you may find the download is still there. If you are absolutely sure that the download contains no virus or malware, you can move it out of the security area and use it.

It is very important to buy security software from a reputable dealer or developer. You have to be absolutely sure that the software is genuine. There is a lot of copied software around (which looks genuine) and I would never buy this type of software from a market.

WHAT!!!?

MS Security Essentials is free for any genuine user of Windows XP, Vista or 7. You don't need to buy "Windows 7 Pro".

Where can you buy Windows 7 Pro for "£20 more", ie. £45? The only one I know of is the student deal which as it's name suggests isn't open to everyone!

More rubbish. Kaspersky 2011 is NOT due soon, it's not even in alpha, beta or even announced as being in development!

Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 is the current mainstream product and will CONTINUE as such throughout this year.

Kaspersky PURE is due for release SOON, however it is NOT a successor to KIS2010 rather the same program with some added extra features like password manager and backup. Similar to the Norton 360 program. There is currently no facility to upgrade from KIS to PURE but it 'might' be offered in the future if sufficient demand.

When will people learn to get their facts right before posting :roll:

Yes & no, I have no 'the works' near me & even if I did, they may not have it. As acknowledged in the OP, yes, that deal is better, but it is a localised deal, not accessible to many.

i thought his was only an upgrade aswell,not the full program - anyone know any deals on win7 whether student or not for 1 or more computors???? thanks geeks im mean guys :w00t::-D

Yes, you're right Charlie; it's only an upgrade.

Best option for Windows 7 (full version) would be direct from your University/College if they have appropriate licensing arrangements or an OEM copy from Ebuyer, Dabs etc. Those are the cheapest legal methods available. (And remember you only get free telephone support and the right to transfer to a different computer if you buy retail).

Can't believe this didn't go sorta hot - last widely available deal I saw (dixons) was £20 for 3 users & got double this heat... :thinking:

For those looking around, I recntly got NIS (Norton), 3 PC 2 years for £12.49 on *bay.
