Kaspersky Anti-Virus already today provides the user with maximum data security. We can say that in spite of the fact that the antivirus appeared on the market almost recently, many myths have already swirled about it.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus poorly recognizes and protects against spyware. And this is the second myth, dear readers. Throughout the existence of Kaspersky Anti-Virus, it has had a good level of spyware detection. The seventh version of the themes stands out for having even more advanced spyware detection (when compared with the leaders of Dr.Web, NOD 32).
Kaspersky Anti-Virus detects rukits best of all. In fact, this is half a myth. This is not to say that Kaspersky Anti-Virus is the undisputed leader in this characteristic (NOD 32 is the best in detecting ruits today, thanks to its proactive AntiStealth protection). However, Kaspersky Anti-Virus does a good job of protecting the user from rukits, and this is achieved primarily due to the use of the latest heuristic analyzer technology.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus has a high level of signature-based virus detection. This is not a myth! In fact, Kaspersky Anti-Virus "has a high level of signature-based virus detection. Even if you look at the results of multiple independent tests, you will clearly see that the virus detection efficiency of Kaspersky is 98.46%, which is the absolute level of signature virus detection today.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus releases updates more often than others. Pure, true and nothing more. Today, Kaspersky Anti-Virus is the leader in terms of the number of update releases per month. It should be noted that updates are created almost every hour. As a result, about 700 updates are released in one month. Such a high level of program update tells users only good news.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus has poor performance. Today I can say that this is a myth. After all, the new version of the antivirus not only takes up fewer system resources, it works even faster than previous versions of the program. It is especially worth noting the performance of the antivirus in the manual virus scan mode. Kaspersky Lab has been thinking about ways to solve performance problems for a long time. A solution was found, thanks to which today Kaspersky Anti-Virus works faster than some other anti-virus programs.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus easily detects dangerous viruses, but sometimes it cannot cope with viruses of the lowest level. Indeed, previous versions of Kaspersky Anti-Virus were poor at neutralizing low-level viruses. This was explained by the fact that Kaspersky Lab focused on the anti-virus database, which, as a rule, includes the most dangerous viruses (high-level viruses). While "small" viruses bypassed the protection, as if nothing had happened. However, this problem is yesterday, because in the new version of the antivirus, improved protection against pseudoviruses, sub-viruses, scanning systems and other low-level malware was introduced.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus is expensive and not the best antivirus. This is another myth that users are spreading on the web. First of all, I must say that the price for the latest version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus is relatively low. Today, Kaspersky Anti-Virus can be purchased at a very reasonable price. If we compare Kaspersky antivirus with the equally well-known Dr.web antivirus, we will see that in terms of price category they stand side by side, while Dr.web is not the best choice in terms of price / quality ratio. All this does not allow us to conclude that Kaspersky Anti-Virus is unreasonably expensive. Of course, Kaspersky Anti-Virus cannot be called "the best antivirus". However, in the category of undisputed leaders, he is still present.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus often reacts falsely to the appearance of a virus in the computer. Unfortunately, this is not a myth. False threat signal is a shortcoming of many antiviruses today. False signals, as a rule, are generated in connection with an increase in the level of protection (in the Kaspersky settings). In this case, Kaspersky Anti-Virus may mistake harmless files for high-class viruses. This is explained by the fact that Kaspersky Anti-Virus implements proactive protection, which sees almost every file with an unknown extension as a virus. This protection was designed to prevent viruses that have not yet been added to the database.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus is not supported by Windows Vista. In fact, the new antivirus is made not only with support for the new OS, but also in its style. However, it is important to point out that Kaspersky Anti-Virus functions without errors on a licensed version of Windows Vista. On a pirated version of the OS, there may be program failures that are caused by the absence of some modules in the operating system.
