    Default Kaspersky

    Better still, free Kaspersky!

    I understand this is this shizz in the world of antivirus.

    Might give it a nudge...unless someone advises otherwise.

    "email and web antivirus"

    Thats better than some of the other free AV's. many freebies wont scan email (AVG & Avast do, most other not)

    KAV is the shizz as far as detection goes , or at least it used to be.
    It used to have the reputation of being a resource hog though. Possibly as its manual scans were more thorough than other products 'quick scans' and KAV scan used
    to take a very long time , back when I used to use it.

    I'll be uninstalling NOD & giving KAV a go

    I'm a bit biased against it but I realise that comes from years ago. I got a 1 year free trial with a motherboard, used it for a couple of months, then realised it was the source of frequent hangs in my browser and got rid of it.
    Since then defender has done good enough for me supplemented by a few other free tools occasionally.

    Hmmm, OK if you currently use one of the other free ones, but I'll stick with my NOD32.

    Rule 1: If it isn't broken, don't fix it.
    wipe your paws.

    Find it hard to believe Kaspersky has no interference from the Putin regime as Eugene was in the KGB as well even though he has continually denied there is no interference

    you could ask the same question of ANY software.
    Look at the US & all there requests for backdoors into software ,encryption, OS's etc.

    Im giving Kav a good old test right now.
    Ive got a laptop with an infection that nothing seems to detect . I can see the file that the malware puts in the 'run' folder , that file is detected but not the malware
    creating it. Del that 1 file & it pops back in 1 minute later

    Just installed this on SWMBO's system.
    It initially promted for an email address but I skipped it & still carried on without it.
    I'll see how it behaves.
