As has been the trend in the hot antivirus software market, each company is coming out with software deals where the subscription includes activation code for three PC. This has been done by the companies in recognition of the fact that almost every user has at least one desktop, one laptop and one other laptop/notepad which would require antivirus protection. Kaspersky has aggressively priced its
Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 for just $9.98. The software package works with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.
The software provides all round protection against any sort of attack on the PC whether it be a virus attack, cookie flood, Trojans, spammers, keyloggers, all are addressed by the superb antivirus logic that Kasperksy has devised. The Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 has a two-way firewall that prevents hackers from gaining access to the PC. 88 customers on amazon.com have given the software a whopping 4.5/5 rating.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 Review Summary
There are only 7 one-star rating and 2 two-star rating of this product out of the 88 user feedbacks. One of the biggest problems with the software reported by users with Windows 7 operating system is that the Kaspersky software stops working after about four months of use with a message “database corrupt” and “Activation key Blacklisted”. Despite loading it again three times, one user found that the problem did not get resolved. More alarmingly, when the antivirus software reports “data base corrupt”, it switches off the firewall and the leaves the PC vulnerable to virus and malware attacks. The online support is unhelpful and this problem of “database corrupt” has been reported by many users which indicate that the software has a bug. To install Kaspersky Internet Security 2012, users have to uninstall previous versions otherwise there is a software conflict. One user suffered a complete computer crash while trying to unload the previous version of the software.
60 users have given the software a 5/5 rating and 14 have given it a four star rating while five others have given the package a three star rating. Users were happy with the speed of installation, it installs much faster than Norton. Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 works well in every department whether it is antivirus, spam protection, application control, firewall, network monitoring, network control, parental monitoring, blocking ads, using virtual keyboards, all aspects have been covered. Users have tested out the efficacy of this product by deliberately visiting known malware website. It simply blocks out the website and warns the user that the site contains malware. The software is resource friendly, and unlike the Norton package, it does not significantly slowdown the PC while running checks in the background. Despite all the features, the software works fast, does not hang and is fully automated; the user does not need to tweak the system at all.
The Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 is attractively priced at $9.98 for three PC, which is almost half the price of other competing products in the markets. Despite the cheap price, the software is no laggard when it comes to providing all-round protection to PCs and laptops. The software works with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. It is easy to install, resource friendly and does not slow down the PC like some other anti-virus software do. The issues of some packages not working due to “database corrupt” message has been reported by many users; the company must make sure that such problems do not occur. Overall, since 60 users have given this product a five star rating, we too agree that the software is worth the money and is in fact, a great bargain.
