I tried everything I could think of, but the install failed each time. I also tried the suggestions at Kaspersky forums, but nothing worked.
It said the problem could be a virus preventing the installation, but AVG, Avast, and Avira all installed with no problems after trying to install Kaspersky. I don't understand how those would install so easily if something is supposedly blocking Kaspersky, it would surely be able to at least block one of the other 3 programs I tried.
After the install failed, it offered to download another application that would scan my computer, which I allowed. Nice of Kaspersky to mention that it's 133mb download, lol.
Well that proved useless as well. A lot of time and effort for nothing.
Pretty much the software is useless on my computer.
It's a recent Windows install, and I even went a step further and pulled the OS drive and scanned it from another computer, and everything came up clean.
I got a great price on a 3 license box, but it's useless to me if I can't use it.
So i'll wind up giving it away to someone, since it wouldn't be worth my time to repackage it and ship it back.
Kaspersky carries a good reputation. After all, they're the ones who busted stuxnet and flame. But with all that brain power, they can't make a smooth enough product to install on some fairly high end equipment.
I'm sure it does well on some computers, but this will be the last time I ever try the product.
After receiving it, I uninstalled my old McAfee, reboot and then installed Kaspersky. The installation went smooth. It will prompt you to scan the entire drive(s). Kaspersky gave the option to do a full scan or quick scan which scans only system files. I chose to do a full scan because I was not 100% certain that my drive(s) were without viruses. The scan took several hours depending on how big your drive is and how much storage is being used. If you are certain that you do not have any viruses then you could probably do the quick scan.
After the scan was done, I was quite surprise that it used very little resources when do my normal business operation. I protected me via Internet, email, downloads, etc. and it didn't hang up or froze my computer where I have to wait until it was done.
I now have 2013 version and I will be ordering the new version for 2014. If you want goof virus protection that uses minimum computer resources I highly recommend the product.
1) Runs smooth in the background of my computer. Seems to hog less resources than Norton, Avira, Avast. Trend Micro ran smooth also, I'm sure there are other great alternatives. I've tried every one best buy has to offer, I've picked up the free six month trials for each. I've also jumped around to different demos for extended periods of time.
2) It works. I've tried other Anti Viruses. My computer ends up acting strange, not coming out of hibernate, some apps take forever to load, etc. Kaspersky won't even pick up a virus(or all other leading industry anti-viruses) on these computers, but I never get to this place in the first place when Kaspersky has been protecting the computer.
I write music sometimes and use every bit of processing power. Kaspersky has saved me many headaches. When something isn't just right, it comes out with stutters in recording or drop outs. I don't really fight viruses too much once a computer is infected, I've spent hours cleaning and many times it's just never the same. I've been doing this since I was 10, I'm 26 now. I don't mess around, I just reformat. I also push the processing power/memory to the max many times.
I've never had to reformat a Kaspersky protected computer yet. These small problems never manifest.
I ended up coming back to this from the free ones because of this fact.
Right now, this computer is in need of a reformat. I tried to get away from paying for an Anti Virus.
The pop ups would be ok and I would consider purchasing those brands if my computer didn't end up acting strange.
We just purchased this again to protect our computers. Kaspersky has been amazing for me. I'll stick with Kaspersky until it no longer works for me. Other brands could win out in the future. Right now Kaspersky has been good for me.
