Kaspersky Internet Security - Reduced to 49p - The Works

115
Found 31st May 2011
Kaspersky Internet Security reduced to clear presumably because it's 2009. Anyhow, it says on the box that you can go to the website and update both the database and the program so I assume this means a 2011 version.

3 user license.

I know there are free internet security packages but I thought for 49p it seems like it makes sense to pay for it for a change.

INSTORE only.

Sorry I should have said. I saw it in store. It was a Works shop inside a garden centre. I didn't try looking online.
Will mean you can update to 2011 - good value to non-Barclays current account holders (who get it free).
49p LOL

"you get what you pay for"
Yes, I confirm that it works. Go to the website, click on this link:
kaspersky.co.uk/kis…ons
-download the software, and then use the activation code from the pack. Would work with any code for KIS 7.0 or above.
If you do not have Works nearby, try *bay for older versions of KIS, and use the same method, should work. Costs typicall £3-4 for multiuser one-year versions.

respectfully you don`t know what your talking about.....

Kaspersly is one of the best (if not the BEST!), used for 4 years with no problems, virus or slow down etc..
I got 2010 and downloaded the the 2011 trial.. used the key on the box to unlock! cool!
worth a try for under 50p!
Kaspersky is my AV of choice, certainly better than the Microsoft, McCafe or Symantec offerings.
Bah hot i just got the hotukdeals Kaspersky Pure offer at play for £13 for 3 licences now a weeek later kis comes out at 49p

grrr

gonna pop down tomorrow and pick a few of these up great price
Send an email to sony. They can use this deal.
ive seen these in the "works" store in hemel hempstead
Bloatware. Avoid.

If you must install this crap, just choose the antivirus only option, otherwise, like others of similar ilk, this thing will hog resources, slow down key programs and generally just be a pita.

Ye there is always some jostling for the top spot. The point is though that this is at least "one of" the best antivirus products on the market and not some budget crapware that gives you no real protection.

No point paying for something you can get for free (Microsoft Security Essentials). Simple, updates standalone or via windows updates and the dat catalogues are near enough exactly the same. It'll find/remove the same bugs!

For something that was probably around £40-50 on release for 49p! I prefer Macfee myself, but still bargain.

Oh...

"you look dumb if you don't have a clue"

Good find OP

Quite literally - you get Kaspersky Internet Security.

Anyone who misses this deal, can get licences for cheap on eBay for Kaspersky.

One of the best antivirus programs, and performs consistently well in heuristics testing which is something most AV's are poor at - Avira and NOD32 normally beat it. Only drawback is that it's a slightly more of a drain on system resources compared to other antivirus programs. av-comparatives.org/

The only negative thing I noticed is that my computer (running Vista) takes far longer to start now that Kaspersky is installed. It doesn't hog too much memory / CPU time once it's up and running and the daily update has finally completed!
use AVG. Its free for private use and doesnt come with unrequired bloatware.

It's been my considerable experience that most high street AV/IS packages are diabolical and will slow down all but the most top spec PC's, as well as being staggeringly ineffective in actually protecting systems from what they promise on the shiny box.

I just don't see the point in these all-in-one anti-spyware, virus, firewall, ID theft malarky bloated scare-tactics crappy programs.

There's no protecting PC's from the stupidity of their users who click on "free virus scanner/malware check!" and "install this plugin to see our collection of free donkey pr0n!" and end up with 30 trojans and hacked online banking accounts etc. In the past month I've cleaned the same system from the same person 3 times, each time infected with the same scareware program despite my lecturing and attempts to educate her not to click the links.

Ergo: People are stupid, programs that cost 49p, or are free, will not protect them or their PC from their stupidity.
its illegal to have a thread about Kaspersky without some clever clogs telling you its free with Barclays online banking

I agree totally - I had a nasty virus a year back - nothing found it but Kaspersky, been using ever since with total confidence.

You're wrong!! Guaranteed some nasty virus soner or later. It's plain stupid NOT to have any form of antivirus software.
None available at my local "The Works" Broadstairs store. Only 66 days till my current one runs out!
Seems a good deal to me. I use comodo which I have always found to be good if a little heavy on resources and it is a bit verbose with all the warnings it will give you, unless you reduce the security level.

not true, so many anti norton people out there,
their 2011 versions have been rated very highly
I've sorted 3 people's computers in the last 8 days with MS Security Essentials, all 3 had viruses of some kind of another, all 3 machines are running fine.
A lot better at dealing with rootkits (eg fake antivirus programs) than the likes of McAfee or Norton.
Also, for anyone to say MSE is better shows an embarrassing lack of knowledge.
Kaspersky has been one of the best for many a year... Its always highly rated. Other AV's go up n down in the rankings but kaspersky is always high up there in 1st 2nd or 3rd etc and has been the case for abt 6years+ now..

Kaspersky is consistent. What might be the best this year may fall down to like 6th in AV.comparatives in 6mths time. Kas will still be up there, as always....

To those of us who use mse everyday, people who pay for home av are clueless. Small, quick and protects so well. I defy anyone to prove mse is poor because it's free.

Can you please tell me what is wrong with informing members of this forum about getting something for free if they are eligible?
Ah, the old "my anti-virus is better than your anti-virus debate".

I like Kaspersky and have it on my desktop as I get it free, but use Microsoft Security Essentials on my laptop. As long as you don't go blindly downloading executables, you'll be fine with any anti-virus. It comes down to use of resources the most for me - I find both K and MSE use fairly little.

Bear in mind Kaspersky is more than just a realtime anti-virus, it has a firewall and some good anti phishing and anti rootkit stuff. I turn it off to save resources, but it's something you'd want running on your Gran's computer so they don't go falling into those kind of traps.

i have used this on windows 7 spot on and this 49p deal will update to 2011.
I run MSE and Kaspersky same computer. Might be daft I hear you say but MSE finds dangerous sites that Kaspersky doesnt.
This is nice deal, thank you!:)
Yes the old my antivirus is better than your debate lol
I don't think any off them will be any good soon because someone will always bring out a new virus or trojan!

its good stuff, got a free copy from the rep when he came into work, for the simple reason that I knew it used to be called PC Cillin (sold it instore in my previous job)
the 64bit version totaly crashed my 64bit win7
the 32bit running great.
syamtec's new Norton GUI is a lot friendlier but more comprehensive
trend's is all hidden away behind little buttons drop down menus
liked Kaspersky til it completely gave up doing auto updates. had a full copy with almost 9 months remaining. uninstalled/reinstalled. nowt. formatted windows, reinstalled...nowt.
gave up.
