Why the cold? :? Excellent software and best price on the net I can find. Even at £17.36 without the 50% off discount its surely a great deal. :thumbsup:

This offer has been around for some time now, and has been posted here and discussed at length before, but not for a while, so it's always useful to remind people of this very good offer. To be honest I'm surprised it's still going. Things will warm up probably.

davej1710, never worry about any deal going cold initially. If it is indeed a good deal, it will get hot eventually :thumbsup:

I know this is slightly off topic but i have to post one of the best amazon reviews i have read, note this is for kaspersky anti virus rather than internet security but funny never the less:

(1 Star review)
"When I tried to set this up it told me I had AVG8 on my hardrive. I went into program files to delete it, emptied my Recycle Bin, and restarted the computer. Then when I tried to install Kaspersky it told me I still had AVG8 on the pc and it wouldn't load for that reason. I phoned a friend who is a computer engineer and he said this was a common problem with Kaspersky. I've sent it back to Amazon for a refund!"

I love it when people get on their high horse and dont have a clue what they are on about.

by the way kaspersky is fantastic bit of kit and this is a great price.

Sorry OP, but never pay for anti-virus/firewall software/malware defender software
Most of it is bloaty and takes up a lot of your PCs resources.
I use AVG/Zonealarm/Spybot/Adaware
Dont mean to sound preachy but they have a small processor footprint and do the job very well for free IMO
Thanks for the post anyway

What you are saying is not really true i am affriad, yes things like the old versions of macafee and norton were a burden on the processor but programs like NOD32 and Kaspersky have very small footprints indeed. The memory footprint of the new kaspersky at startup 66mb so i have read on a review and after doing some searching on google the four programs you have mentioned come to a total of 62mb so i hardly think that 4mb will make any difference at all, plus with kaspersky you have probably the most effective anti virus programs on the market and you have the convience of having all your security in one program. Also you do not have to run 3 seperate scans with kaspersky like you have to that all take up precious processing power.

Dont get me wrong i think that the free alternative do a job and not a bad one but kaspersky does a better one in my opinion. I have used free one myself in the past but it would take a lot for me to scrap my nod32 antivirus for avg especially as avg gave me false positives all of the time.

Fair enough curofone
I'm a cheapskate and if running 4 programmes for nothing takes up a bit more time then i'll do it.

Maybe true for Norton, McAffee and all the rubbish you get with store bought machines. However, Kapersky and a few others beat all those freebies hands down. Kapersky has a vert low impact on a machine, and is quick itself and stays out of the way. Far better than running several programs, no matter how good they may be - and I accept that the software you've mentioned is good quallity. They're just not as good as having Kapersky on a machine (or three), which in my opinion, sets the benchmark for domestic Internet security software. No software is worth paying full price for, but this is a deal that even beats those free packages.

there are various offers for free 6 month keys available out there

or if with barclays you get 12 months for free

I use this and this is a good deal.
I don't want to re-hash the old arguments of free alternatives, but suffice to say I've tried those before and not found them to work for me, nor do I bank with Barclays.
I paid £15 for my 3 licenses and in that context this is a hot deal if your spending £30+.

I use Kaspersky & find it does the job just great.

I actually bought a 5 PC / 2 Yr licence for mega cheap direct from Kaspersky using a 50% off 50% code thingy about 8 months ago.

Worked out cheap as a mates "bought" 2 of the licences & the others are on my Mums & the In Law PC's which I "maintain".

For me its a blessing as it really can run away in the background without any interferance from doddery old hands so I'm not getting "help me" phone calls from the oldies.

I know that you can get the free versions which do the job just fine but in the same vein I can drink water for free but I do like to treat myself to a wee Drambuie now and then :thumbsup:

£3 to cover a PC for a year aint exactly expensive.

p.s. Hot

Its coming up as £17.36 now : (

Kaspersky & NOD32 are probably the best 2 anti-virus softwares out there, so it's a good deal.

I agree that Kaspersky is a great product but to be fair, the reviewer is right. It is a right pain in the **** trying to instal KIS after having had AVG. Even after you 'completely ' remove AvG Kaspersy still thinks you have it running. Just have a quick google or look through the Kaspersky forums and you see that lots of people have this problem.

The solutions are out there, but may seem a little complicated and too much hassle for people who aren't very computer savvy.

This isn't hot from me dur to fact you have to spend another £30 to get it at this price

Maybe a good deal but Kaspersky support is the worst!
If you are not a computer expert, think again! You can make your computer very secury, but the pop ups will annoy you, maybe even put you off using your computer (which could be a good thing in disguise:))!!

Just download the avg removal tool of their website, should actually remove all traces of traces of avg off the system and kaspersky should install no problem

also my point about the review was that she did no actaully uninstall avg she just deleted the bits she could see, she would not have been able to install any anti virus program after doing what she did so a 1 start review is a bit harsh

Yeah make sure that you remove avg properly either use the removal tool from here avg.com/dow…ols or follow the instructions that have already been posted here kaspersky.com/sup…831.

A lot of the anti virus makers actually provide specific removal tools that can be downloaded as the uninstallers that come with them never seen to clean up the registry properly or if you follow what that reviews said to do they just ignore the registry full stop.

Last years version of this caused big problems with my laptop, apparently it conflicts with certain Acer drivers and I had to remove it to get everything working again. Many reports on internet about this, don't know if this latest one fixes those issues.

great price

I was not trying to say that you messed up the uninstall (unlike that reviewer), but most people dont realise with lot of anti virus programs that the in built uninstallers just do not do the job and that these removal tools are out there but it is always worth checking.

hopefully with kaspersky you will not have the trouble of getting a virus in the first place so should be able to access those website whenever you want. I used kaspersky for a number of years and it never missed a virus if i download one by mistake. After kaspersky i tried the free avg but did not really like it, no where near as good as kaspersky and always through up false positives. I use nod32 now and it am as equally as happy as i was when i had kaspersky.

Unfortunately it was kaspersky that failed me with my son's help:x, I will try the online uninstaller:thumbsup: I took no offence at anything you said;-)

Very good deal for a very good bit of software.

Bought one of these yesterday with an order, and was successful. Tried again today as I needed some more stuff and I wanted to get extra copies of Kaspersky for the kids' PCs - and it came up with an error message when I entered the code.

I have checked the terms and conditions, and cannot see anything limiting it to one per person. So I can only think that there are no more available, in which case this offer has expired. I would interested to know if anyone else manages to get one 50% off. Incidentally, the deal link goes through to a non-Amazon seller with a price of £18.99 and p&p of £3.16 on top. Strangely, it does have the 50% off offer, whereas the one sold by Amazon, which costs £17.99 (it was £17.36 yesterday) and is eligble for free delivery, doesn't have the offer listed. I tried adding both to my basket and using the code, but both times it came up with the error message.

Shame if it has expired as it is a great deal. I bought the 10-user Kaspersky 7 last year for £34 and shared the licenses with my sister. That worked out at £3.40 per user, compared with this deal which comes to £2.89. Heat and rep anyway. Cheers

You are also talking nonsense. If you actually read the Kaspersky support, you'll see this is a faulty of the AVG installer program that leaves a residue in the registry.
Go onto the Kaspersky forums and search on "AVG8.zip" which is a download that removes the remnants of AVG which then allows for easy Kaspersky installation.
Alternatively, click >>]HERE
I got mine free with Barclays but this is a great price.
Warning. If you use NetNanny, Kaspersky is incompatible and cannot co-exists with NetNanny (which is a pain as NetNanny is the top banana for parental kids internet supervision). How daft that two top products cannot work together. Kaspersky's parental protection element of their package is OK but not a patch on NetNanny

I also tried the other day and had exactly the same problem. 50% deal shows on 3rd party seller not Amazons preferred seller. Terms and conditions state item must be brought from Amazon and not a marketplace seller..... Strange as to why it shows the 50% off on the marketplace seller then..........

My current license runs out in 2 weeks as well lol

well judging by amazons delievery times (Delivery: Usually dispatched within 2 - 4 weeks) they have ran out of stock but the offer is still valid as i have just tied it out

Just took me 5 mins to work out how to find the one sold by Amazon!!!! After trawling through the options from all the sellers, I then notice the option on the right for "MORE BUYING OPTIONS". Thats the only place I could find the 'Amazon' sold copy!

How weird is that? After trying endless times for a couple of days and not even being able to find the £17.36 offer again, as the link went through to the marketplace seller at £18.99, it finally worked again tonight. There was only one I could see offered by Amazon, same as the other day at £17.99. Again adding that to the shopping basket didn't work. So I tried adding the £18.99 one, as I had attempted to do unsuccessfully before, and lo and behold it suddenly changed to the missing £17.36 offer and it went through.

It's like they make it invisible until you find the right combination! Still, sorted now. I can go to bed happy.

check it today, expired , guys.
