Summary: I recommend Panda Antivirus as an excellent alternative (see my review there). I will never return to Kaspersky products after treatment I have received.
Pros: I have bought Kaspersky Antivirus 2009 because I was pleased with performance of 2008 product. However, 2009 product did not bring me anything but frustration and irritation - see cons.
Cons: I have bought Kaspersky Antivirus 2009 on their web site for installation on 3 computers. However, even the second installation proclaimed itself "one-month trial version".

Summary: I didn't get it from Newegg I downloaded the 3x install version from their website and received the backup disc in the mail.
Pros: Much faster than Mcafee, uses a lot less RAM, constant updates without causing so much as a hickup; not only on my gaming biuld, but on my girlfriends less capable laptop as well. Like the other review, I agree about the user interface.

Summary: A very good software program, which does not seem to clash with Windows Vista. We bought this product because it was cheaper than buying the software license extension through the Kaspersky website, which is ridiculous.
Excerpt: Don't think I've ever done a review of this kind before, so I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for reading. When we brought our second computer about 5/6 years ago now, my mother and grandmother were sold on a Anti Virus software called Norton.
Excerpt: Kaspersky Anti-Virus is my personal choice for virus protection and removal - it is not too expensive, reliable, has many features and options and you can be sure it will prevent and remove those pesky and annoying viruses.
Excerpt: We moved recently and joined the BT Home Hub generation in our new house. At first we were so pleased and amazed with the speed and brilliance of our internet connection until the problems came.
