If you've recently been looking for Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam & Anti-Spyware solutions that'll also work on Vista, WITH PARENTAL CONTROLS this could be it. This month it won PC-PRO group review and was A-Listed.

3 separate computer licenses for £19.99 and £6.00 del = £25.99 minus QuidCo
(at the moment online this costs £35.70 reduced from £51.00 at http://www.kaspersky.com)

With recent Panorama on Kids safety online etc this is one of the packages that offers Parental Controls. I had to protect a somewhat underpowered laptop for my daughter and although PCPro had put me off saying it had one of the 'larger memory footprints' I can vouch that the laptop boots quickly and remains nice and 'punchy' to use. Don't think some of these packages won't have that effect because F-Secure's Internet Security rendered the whole laptop useless as booting took absolutely ages and ages. I'd recommend this as a good solution for any pc that needs good all-round protection but may not be a rocketship, forget Norton and McAfee.

Excellent deal - great Value for Money.
#2
Been reading about this to go on my new laptop and although it gets great anti-virus writeups it says that the firewall component has a very large footprint and is a bit of a drain on Vista....can anyone comment on this?
#3
I got a free trial of this recently from WH Smiths, it killed my internet connection dead and the computer turned in to a snail. Soon as I uninstalled everything went back to normal. Tried it on another PC, same thing. Not a good experience.

Just what I needed - thanks

All I can say is try it for yourself, get a free trial from www.kaspersky.com and give it a go. I've put anti-virus etc on countless computers, I used to work in the Tech Support roles and I can't stand software that bogs computers down.
Note, I'm comparing this on 'clean' computers and my idea of a somewhat slow laptop is an AMD Turion 64 MK36 with 1Gb of ram running Vista.
As for the installation, even if you think you are sharp with computers don't be tempted by the 'custom install' unless you really are an expert with specific needs, the firewall questions will drive you barmy.

I got this at the 1/2 price deal before christmas. Its better than a norton in terms of slowing the computer up or not. Its abit slower than AVG anti-virus but this is an all-in-one software and I think it is pretty good. It doesn't slow the computer up too much so I'm pretty happy with it.

Very surprising. All my experience comes with starting from a clean machine.

By the way, if you think a machine is infected then ZoneLabs Internet Security free trial has cleared up more infected machines than anything else I have tried (apart of course from whipping the hard disk out and plugging it into another clean machine to disinfect it) and in my opinion is always worth a 'go', although I'd not recommend it over Kaspersky once clean as Kaspersky is a bit more efficient.

I'd advise anyone wondering about the performance to go get a free trial from the Kaspersky web site, if it was that uselessly slow I think it would have trouble in reviews let alone actually winning a PC-Pro award, if you're surprised how quick and easy it is then this is a good way of heading towards protecting 3 computers and more importantly your kids at the same time.

Can you elaborate on how to clean the infected computer by using a hard disk and connecting to another computer? Very interested in learning how that's done.

Both PC had expired trials on, 1 with Norton, 1 with McAffee, which I unistalled as instructed prior to installing Kaspersky. Could of just been a duff version as it was a trial disk, or it didn't like the previous installs, but the reaction was pretty extreme. I'm now on AVG with no problems.

My free trial ends in about a month - IMHO its a good bit of software. It does need a little configuration (it wouldnt be doing its job if it didnt) as its quite comprehensive and didnt noticeably slow my machine down. Well recommended.

Yeah sure, maybe my description was a little unclear... if you're trying to disinfect a computer which is already bogged down with viruses and spyware its often very difficult to even load up a new security package. So, if you take the hard disk out of th infected machine and add it as another drive to a clean machine that has a package on it, you can then use that computer to scan that infected drive. People often think 'but you'll infect the good computer' but its very very unlikely, you DONT go clicking around in your files, just scan the drive.

This should make sense as its a clean computer scanning an infected drive not an infected computer that's slowed up and misfunctioning scanning itself.

As for laptops, yes, I've even taken the drives out and connected them via adapters to do this, but usually if a laptop is really infected then I'll more likely try get the files off it, USB sticks, network, burn CDs DVDs etc if I can and then re-format the thing. Believe me sometimes this is a lot lot quicker.

I've added a price and retailer name to the thread title. Thanks for the post mfin :)

Unless I'm mistaken it's only £19.99 at Scan
http://scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=667931
or you could go for the OEM version
http://scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=668399
and buy a cable at the same time (so that you meet th eOEM resale crirteria).

Yep, you're right, same price £19.99 for retail version but a touch more postage (unless you can get it for free) so its a tiny bit more expensive in the end, but the OEM one is £3.45 cheaper with delivery taken into account and take the price of a cable out of that too. Either way, still good software and v. cheap if you can get free delivery from scan

£26.98 inc delivery

You can get it for £24.78 delivered at cclonline, only a quid or so cheaper, but every little helps. Plus this helps Northern Ireland customers as they would end up paying 30 quid for it from Dabs.

thanks mfin for the explanation. Will keep that in mind next time.

Some people definitely finding it cheaper now which is great, if you don't have parental controls on a pc which you let kids access the internet then you're mad at this kind of money, if you don't get this one then at least get one of the available suites that are out there.

Are you sure it's the same though? This one is the full package. You can get the anti-virus for 10 quid delivered here. http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.asp?id=15388
If its the whole shebang at costco then thats a brilliant deal.

Tis not! NOD32 is good, but find me a full eset smart security suite with keys for 3 computers that doesn't say ".FIX.v2.7.H4x0R" at the end of it for £25 and I'll agree with you.

Oh yes, I'm sorry Kaspersky is in fact 's**t', you're right, ...you sound like the kind of articulate person that would be capable of assessing whether a security suite is good or not don't you? ...next time, we'll all ask you instead of relying on the (until now) reassuring combination of a well contsructed PCPro review together with some first hand experience. You obviously know what you're talking about.

Come on, I put this thing up because it might protect some kids and put some parents a little more at ease with their computer use - that... i think ....is a good thing.

I persevered with this software for 3 months; I just couldn’t get along with it. I finally went back to Norton & Zonealarm Probably just my lack of knowledge:oops: but I am much happier now:-D

Man oh man! Get rid of Norton ASAP! ( I hope you haven't paid for it!) And get this instead...

There might be still a few live links for the Pro version on this thread as the offer is finished on the computer active website.
Hope this helps!
