Cheap, this and NOD32 are the best anti virus software int he market.

Avoid the plague people are buying Norton and McAffe, full of resource hog.

I'm not voting either way, just commenting.

Personally i've never paid for an anti virus in over 8 years of owning a PC. we have 3 PC's at home and never had a virus.

I use AVG and Spybot - both free of charge and both quite capable of keeping any nasties out.

Just my 2 pence worth.

I got Kaspersky free through my bank and I'm sick of it.
It slows my pc down at startup so I'm trying ESET.
If it works for you, fine but I don't even want free!

It's a brave person who posts antivirus or internet security
software deals on this site however good the deal or product..
I hope Ready 03 has his bullet proof vest on !!!!!

Eset Nod32 if the best anti virus software ever, it barely slows down your PC.

Give it a try mate. :thumbsup:

Got this too from The Works. you can actually download Internet Security 2010 and use the key from this. Works a treat.

Jason

if you think you need to pay for security then guess its a cheap price..

but as above there are plenty free alternatives to keep ya pc safe..

im actually on a trial of norton360 atm as we had a debate on a previos deal of security so thought i would check if it had progrssed,,,

found it is actually no longer a resource hog like the old ones used to be.. actually runs nice and smooth.. still not enough to make me want to pay for it (especially the prices they try and charge)..

AVG Free and PC Tools Firewall Plus

This ones a resource hog and not particularly good at keeping viruses out either, although many will not agree with me..

Still, lots of peoples machines have gone back home with Kaspersky removed and all the viruses removed that Kaspersky didn't elimenate, but free antivirus did!

Voted cold on this one..

Hot from me, changed to Kaspersky after the free ones let me down time and again. Runs like a dream on my pc, barely know it's running. H&R added.:thumbsup:

excellent price and the best av i used in my opinion

avg used to be ok but it free version is free for a reason imo

I will. I ran Kaspersky for 3 years and it did slow my machine down. It missed quite a few nasties too. There is lots of good free stuff out there. I'm curently using Avast, Ad-Aware and Malwarebytes for virus/spyware threats and Comodo for my firewall.

I won't vote cold because it is a good price.

Great price, but not available online it seems.

Any idea if this can be picked up for a similar price anywhere online?

Thanks

Flix

Really good deal and a good product too, I've run kaspersky in a few rigs over many years and have never had a virus infect me, even though I visit 'dangerous' sites quite often.

Quite funny what some peeps say though, I wonder how many nasties kaspersky missed are just false positives to the freebies:thumbsup:

Oh, dont forget if you have online banking with barclays you can get this free!

I bought this from the works last week for £7.99, (download 2010 version from download.com and use code on disc) So far so good.

avast is free. And Kaspersky is a hog to resources compared. Haven't voted either way as it's cheap for a 'paid' product, but if there's free alternatives which are better, then it's an obvious choice. Also a lot of people use AVG, but avast has a small memory usage.

Kaspersky consistently rates highly in independent tests, so it's a thumbs up from me :thumbsup:

Avast free is an anti virus product (as is most of the "free stuff), this kaspersky is an internet security product. Of course its going to use more resources and memory - its doing a lot more work, if avast (and other free software) ran a firewall-banner blockers-attack blocker (to name but a few) and had a smaller footprint then I would be impressed:whistling:

If peeps are going to compare things, its best to compare 'apples to apples' ;-)

I've found that Kaspersky 2010 by default is set not to concede resources to other process - hence some may find it hogs resources. Set Kaspersky to concede resources by ticking the box and then I found it runs fine. Much less intrustive than 2009 Norton's. The 2009 installs of Kaspersky that I did in the past had concede resources on by default, earlier version may not. You can find this under Settings.

Settings->Options->Concede Resourses to other applications

The advantage of Kaspersky for those that don't want to spend time updating three separate free tools is that for 5.99 you pay for 2009, you get free upgrade to 2010, which is actually not bad and rated significantly better than Avast and AVG in reviews.

You probably have incompatibilities in your system.
best thing to do is to debug: ]http//ww…om/
Post the results on Kaspersky's forum and their support team will help you out.
I have been using KIS for 3 years now and I am very happy.

Will give it a try as Ive noticed that it has slowed my PC down recently!

Kaspersky normally comes top on detection in independant tests.

For the sake of £6, I would go for this over freebies (which admittedly do a decent job, but they arent up to this standard).

Avira AV BTW rates consistently better than the other freebies, including AVG (which is extremely overrated IMHO).

And Nod32....really? It performs very poorly on detection. It was a market leader, some 5 or 6 years ago.

AV comparatives.org product of 2009 was Norton. (kaspersky 2nd and eset 3rd)
not a resource hog anymore.
find me a pro review of one of their 2009/10 products that says it is.
get with the times.

I spent 8 years saying I wouldnt ever use Norton,but I've gone and started using it and its using less RAM than my logitech KB/mouse software.

Can you link to that?

Cant find anything on the AVcomparitives site.

The latest reports has Norton a firm 4th or 5th on detection rate.

This is a great deal - not happy as I bought it at the previous £7 price.

Tip - dont install this - download 2010 version from their web site and use the product key from this cd and you have KIS 2010

i spent my first few years in training, learning how bad Norton products were (this was back in 98) and then between 2004 and 2008 working as a PC tech for a small independant repair company, hating the damn thing even more. refusing to sell it

moved to working for Currys (yes I know, now I cant be trusted!!) after being made redundant (long story, employer was prosecuted by Virgin Media), I started seeing a massive improvement in the 2009 editions of Norton, with some very good reviews, then even better ones with the 2010 products.
So being open minded like any good tech should, I decided to give it a trial.
used a 90 day trial of 360V4 and was very impressed that I went from using 43% RAM to 34% RAM when I switched from Eset Smart Security (which I LOVED).

still very impressed with Norton and hope they keep up their new light service

must have been you from the previous thread on this subject slacker.

i thought i would see for myself and so am in a free 60/90(??) day trial of norton360..

i can actually admit it is so different to norton of the old..

dont even notice its running tbh..

have done couple independant scans from online scanners and all has been ok.

still woulndt go and purchase it but am happy to no longer slate it as being crap..

Don't waist your money on Antivirus products. The free versions work just a well and in some cases even better.

what are you basing that opinion on? its nonsense imo. Kaspersky is recommended on forums frequented by hackers, makers of trojans and other nasties... i have heard people many a time admit kaspersky is a nightmare to beat. Its not perfect, none of them are. But when you hang out on the edge of the internet like i do i wouldnt entrust my security to any of the free ones or most of the paid ones.
As for the speed issues people are having i can only say that Kaspersky has been one of the lighter AVs i have ever used. Maybe you need to upgrade once in a while?

but they're limited protection free sample products generally made to raise awareness of the full internet security softwares.

if you're a light internet user, a free one coupled with a free firewall and free malware protection may be enough.
for others its not.

so compare like for like before coming up with such an idiotic uninformed opinion.

AVG free VS Norton 360.
two totally different products

been using this for years with no problems what so ever so HOT! from me

Anyone know a place to get NOd32 cheap?

My dodgy copy has stopped working.

I've used Kasp for years so this is a fantastic price! I got a 3 user license for a tenner @ Scan a few months back which was a decent deal.

Yes you can get free alternatives... I hate the arguments with security deals...

Heres the bottom line:

free or paid, you stick with what you are comfortable and familiar with so long as its got a good protection rate and light on resources, both of whick kasperky ticks the box for.

I have Kaspersky IS 2010 on a quad core with 3gb ram and on a 1.6Ghz atom netbook with 1gb ram. On both it uses 20-30mb RAM and 2-3% CPU (on the netbook) when sitting in the background and i get zero slowdown on either system. I like to be able to access and control all my protection through the same familiar program instead of 2-3+ different programs... Its what im used to.

Remember guys - vote on the deal, not completely different alternatives. For kaspersky this is a brilliant price and is a great bit of security.

I'll vote hot. Against other paid for AV's this is a bargain but.........yes it is a resource hog, Eset's Nod32 uses a lot less resources but Microsoft's new security suite is better than both and it is free! Comodo is top firewall too.

Microsoft Security Essentials for me ]http//ww…ls/

Yes, really, Microsoft. Been running fine for over a year. And it's free. I don't see any point in paying for computer security products if you have this, keep your PC up to date with Windows Update and regularly run the free online scan at secunia.com

There's a review of Microsoft's product ]here
