    Kaspersky: The Worst AV EVER!


    Hello,

    I must complain on this very bad AV.

    1. Zero Support for free clients (think twice, why would I buy a software, when I can not get a help before buying it?)

    2. It always bug with QKBFILTR.SYS as a keylogger, and when I deleter it, my keyboard was not working...

    3. It slows down the PC startup by 1 minute or even more.

    4. Makes me really frustrated

    Anybody who could help with this issues, please?

    OR what is the best AV ?

    Yeah, I would say it is definitely a bad anti-virus program. I wouldn't say it's good to try out the unheard of company, in the case of anti-virus programs.

    I would try AVG, I believe they have a free version.

    That is all I use for virus protection, it was suggested to me years and years ago, and I use it on more than one computer.

    I would need something with very good protection.

    I'm rying t oavoid any crack/keygens/bad sites, but you ever know.

    I would ratehr pay up tp $50 for excellent protecion than to lose my valuable work

    And I guess I would need a good firewall too, any ideas?

    You know, coming here and registering just to complain about a program says a lot more about you than it does about the program.

    My guess is a google for "best antivirus" will find you many possibilities.

    well KAV is the best AV i have ever seen. Yea it might be a bit heavy on resources but advantage is far more than this issue. Pharming being a great issue now a days and KAV kills them all.

    It's too complicated nowaydays

    The KIS is good choise you think ?

    I read so much reviews (and KAV was one doing well, but I'm still not sure)

    I like KAV too because it found one keylogger that NOD32 missed.

    If you use a router with DNS capabilities you could use openDNS (or any other service) to block any "crack/keygens/bad sites".

    Melissa007 I have used KAV for a long time never had a problem with it. Maybe it is the user rather than the product.

    If you googled best anti virus you will find every AV is listed each with good and bad comments. At the end of the day some protection is better than no protection.

    Thanks for answers... I like kaspersky, but sometimes it seems a bit bad :/

    Maybe I was wrong, but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I just let it in default settings and autostart with windows, but when I'm trying to scan my PC (1.2TB) it stucks.

    Btw, can kaspersky scan unfinished .rar's ? I mean.. while I am downloading torrents, those archives are unextractable, maybe that freezes the KAV?

    I'm not sure but I would guess that if you're downloading torrents that include many .part's of .rars then they're large, right? Scanning large files no matter what AV is going to be slow.

    Just man up and forget an AV and become a more cautious internet user

    Even the most cautious internet user CAN become infected. There was a very well known, reputable site a few months back, that had managed to get some of its visitors infected through an ad that slipped through the cracks.

    Even with AV software, people can become infected.... And as the OP mentioned, she uses torrents, which increases the risk for infection by quite a bit.

    The AV probably wouldn't have helped, every so often their are browser 0days that don't get patched very quickly and you're just not going to prevent it. A lot of people I know including myself normally would just sandbox the program in a VM.

    av's are just too resource heavy. these companies promote fear, they're hardly useful.

    This is the kind of misinformation that contributes to the malware problem on the Internet.

    People that have any computer connected to the public internet, and doesn't protect that computer properly against malware, is being irresponsible and a very 'bad neighbor'.

    Avast AV


    I use Avast and it runs quite nicely in the background with minimum overhead. It's free and doesn't hog resources like my Norton used to. It also alerted me yesterday when a virus tried to download onto my computer! Luckily the avast blocked it. I was alarmed but glad the AV worked. Other than that though I haven't encountered any viruses recently. But you do need to deactivate the update messages because that can crash full-screen applications when using them.
