Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 brings you the essential antivirus technologies that your PC needs – in a product that’s easy to download, install, and run. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 works behind-the-scenes and defends your PC against viruses, spyware, Trojans, rootkits, and other threats -- all without significant impact on your PC’s performance.
Protects against all viruses
By combining cloud-based functionality and powerful security technologies that run on your PC, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 delivers essential security against today’s threats.
Detects new, emerging and unknown threats
The cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network gathers data from millions of participating users’ systems around the world… to help defend you from the very latest viruses and malware attacks. Potential threats are monitored and analysed – in real-time – and dangerous actions are completely blocked before they can cause any harm.
Identifies suspicious websites and phishing websites
Advanced anti-phishing technologies proactively detect fraudulent URLs and use real-time information from the cloud, to help ensure you’re not tricked into disclosing your valuable data to phishing websites. Our URL Advisor also adds colour-coded tags to all web links – to advise you of the danger level of the link and subsequent pages.
Prevents malware from exploiting vulnerabilities in your PC
If your PC has application or system vulnerabilities that haven’t been updated with the latest fixes, cyber criminals and malware could gain entry. In addition to scanning for vulnerabilities, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 analyses and controls the actions of programs that have vulnerabilities – so they can’t cause any harm.
Automatic download and installation features – save you time and effort
Installation now requires far fewer manual steps. When you first download the product from our website, it automatically checks for the latest product version – disinfects existing malware, if necessary – and then starts the installation.
Compatible with Windows 8
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 is fully compatible with Microsoft’s latest operating system – Windows 8 – and is integrated with Microsoft’s latest IT security innovations. In addition, Kaspersky Now – a new application that has been developed to support Microsoft’s new user interface – lets you monitor your PC’s security status and launch vital security features.
So far so good!!
Pros: As far as its effectiveness, the Kasperski brand name speaks for itself, so I really don't need to add to that, but I will chime in about the low footprint it takes/consumes on system resource. This product is fantastic!!
Cons: Even though I am an IT professional, I'll have to say I had a little bit of a problem setting up the auto scan (both Full and Quick). It wasn't as intuitive as one would think, but I figured it out.
