About Kaspersky AntiVirus

Editors Review
Kaspersky is an effective anti-virus package, and it rarely misses malware over the course of its scans. On the other hand its additional features are OK at best, with some of them being fairly redundant in the face of proactive security measures built-in to internet browsers. For all its accuracy and effectiveness, it's also somewhat slow, taking hours to scan even a smaller hard drive that isn't completely filled up.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus is a security suite for Windows developed by Kaspersky Lab.

is one of the most rapidly updated and fastest antivirus programs available to home users. It has a great detection rate for malware, greatly reduced scanning time compared to many other similar products, and has a clean, uncluttered interface that makes it a breeze to use.

virus scan has several features that improve performance. iSwift Scanner automatically adjusts scanning based on your activity for better performance, while iChecker Scanning remembers files that have already been identified as safe, and will skip them unless they are modified.

Other key features include Kaspersky Virtual Keyboard, a fully-secure on-screen keyboard used to enter passwords and other sensitive data; Kaspersky Whitelisting and Application Control, a system that determines the security of an application; and Kaspersky URL Advisor, a tool that automatically warns users if the website they're visiting has been known to serve malware.

Price: Starting from $39.99. There is also a trial period of 30 days.
