Its a good deal I'm currently using it on my netbook atm.

Compared to AVG its really good, doesnt slow your netbook down like Norton. Well worth getting

£14.99 is a good deal, currently its at £19.99 at PCWorld and was that price at GadgetShow Live. Well worth getting.

remember this can be had FOC if you bank online with Barclays

Or there are better free AV products than AVG if this is too much.
Oh why is AV protection on a netbook different from any other PC with the same OS?

So staying neutral on this offer.

Quality product. Great price for 3 pc's.

Plenty of free options out there.

Kaspersky IS better than the free options - one of the few that are.

However, is it ENOUGH better to justify the cost? Personal choice - the reviewed differences are not massive.

Hot - but personal decision whether this or Avira/AVG/Avast is the choice for you.

This is infinitely better than any free offering. This has hourly/daily updates, whereas with a free offering, you get random, infrequent updates. If you're currently using a free solution, your system is only as protected as the last update and scan that you did. Think about it.

With free, you get what you pay for. This is in my top 3 AV solutions, and I work in the industry.

Hot.

Slightly cheaper if you're ordering with other stuff and eligible for the free delivery.

Bought this for £11 from a well known online auction site ;-)

This looks like its the retail version - if so you get free telephone tech support also!

Yep you're right!

Heat Added, This is worth it for the spam filter alone. Really easy to use . I've never found a free one that does spam so well. Used it for 3 years now , and I normally hate paying for software, but this is money well spent.

There is a good completely free alternative in Comodo's internet security suite (you get the firewall and Anti-virus) . Lifetime license and does a good enough job (have been using it for a few weeks with no problems).

For a paid-for Internet security option, this is excellent value (64 bit compatible as well). Voted hot. :thumbsup:

I am getting my Dell mini 9 tomorrow and was wondering if this is a good deal for using on it ? I am one of those people who never know what to believe when buying internet/virus software. Any help/thoughts would be great.

So it'll run on my Toshiba Netbook running UNR. No? I didn't think so.

Not that I need AV software on it anyway.

I get this from ]Scan, it's £13.67 at the moment but is quite often on Today Only at just over a tenner.

Excellent product - heat added

but if you don't want to clutter your PC, they also sell just the AV for £11.49 for 3 desktop1 year sub ]here

£13.24 from ]Amazon

Find this is very slow when installed. Problem is it looks fast when you are doing nothing, kick off office, and a few IE programs and watch your RAM vanish Maybe a good price, so not voting, but thought I would share my experience

I have been using this for over two years after Norton slowed my machine down then they asked me to pay for help over the phone. Buy it when it's cheap download the lastest from the Kaspersky web site when you need to renew and just use the key from the box. I bought mine to renew 6 months before needed as the price was right and you get the latest program just by down loading from the web and the program updates a number of times during the day.:thumbsup:

I installed this from the free Barclays offer.

I found it to be very slow and it would not perform a full scan without locking up and forcing a restart.

Kaspersky Internet Security is a great package. I've used their products for years, having tried many others that are either clunky or resource intensive.

Thats the OEM version, which means if it goes wrong Kaspersky wont support you. As this is under £20 there would also be delivery to pay even with the free delivery offer (AVForums)

Kaspersky does have Linux AV products for Workstations, but it properly supports the standard Ubuntu desktop. Not sure whether the UNR overlay would cause problems or not, though it shouldn't really.

...and what's likely to go wrong? If anything does it's almost always down to your own setup and not something that's isn't mentioned in loads of forums or a quick search can't find out.

[COLOR="Navy"]I also work in the industry - 17 years specialising in Information Security, CISSP and CISM qualified - and I use Avast! as my anti-virus on both laptop and netbook. It's updated at least daily, sometimes more often, and has minimal impact on performance.

Well the one you listed was more expensive than this one and it does not come with the free support... i know which one everyone but you would choose! :thumbsup:

For people wanting to go down the free road ]Avira anti virus is free and has done very well in PC Pro tests recently and then there's ]Comodo's free internet security, or anti virus and firewall. All of which are very good.

If your using for business don't you have to pay?
And the anti-virus specialist guy what does he actually use at work on all those computer?

just woundering

Also arn't kaspersy and Eset's NOD32 usually the best these day?

[COLOR="Navy"]Indeed, neither Avast! nor AVG are free for business use.

We don't actually use these at work, but that's more to do with the lack of enterprise management capabilities than to any deficiencies in their ability to detect or clean malware.

We use 3 different anti-virus products at work - one product on our gateways, another on our Exchange servers and a third on our desktops - in line with industry best practice. I'm not at liberty to say which ones, but they all come from the major vendors and are aimed at large corporates.[/COLOR]

Lol, that's a good point. Why doesn't the senior IT specialist roll-out accross his LAN/WAN/SAN enterprise environment the cheap as chips AV software that he uses at home I wonder?

I would imagine most likely due to lack of compatibility, updates and support. The fact is Kaspersky is so cheap for what you get you can't beat it at this sort of price. Remember you don't get any parental controls or a whole load of other useful features with the free stuff.

I've been in IT for years myself and the only office I know that uses one of the free brands has a head count of less then 100. We don't support them as we only basically do the biggest companies in the country, for the firm I work for.

As an IT specialist of some 20+years I also use Avast! on my home PCs. Nothing wrong with Kaspersky (it's probably the best commercial product on the market) but Avast! is good enough for me not to bother purchasing anything else. It would have it's limits in a corporate environment (and indeed wouldn't be free) but it is VERY good. I used to AVG but IMHO Avast! is easier to use and worked with Vista when AVG would not (though it does now)

The free Avast! software doesn't come bundled with a firewall. Presumably you use a software firewall?

[COLOR="Navy"]As I said above, it's down to lack of enterprise management capabilities.

When you have 140,000 clients (as well as servers and gateways), you need an anti-virus solution that's easy to deploy (for example, when a new signature file is released, you want to be able to push it out to all your clients without affecting your network), that doesn't allow end users to disable it, that provides good management information about viruses found, that is compatible with all the applications which your enterprise runs, that can be deployed to peripatetic users who rarely connect to the main network, etc, etc.

Avast! and AVG don't really major on these features. They do, however, work very well at finding malware (look at any independent review - i.e., one that is not sponsored by an anti-virus vendor or a magazine which they advertise in!) and have frequent updates and low processing overheads. That's why so many IT and Information Security people use them on their own PCs.

(Somebody else asked about firewalls - personally, I use Comodo, but it may be a bit complex to configure for some users).[/COLOR]
