Kaspersky not updating
The newest version includes better anti-phishing protection, optimized antivirus databases, and a new featured named automatic exploit prevention which protects your PC even if it has not been updated with latest fixes.
Users running Kaspersky Anti-Virus on Windows 10 can download free Kaspersky Now app to easily view protection status, and also launch Anti-Virus tools and features. In addition to Windows 10, Kaspersky Anti-Virus also supports Windows Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1.
So, if you are going to use Anti-Virus on a notebook you will get better battery life.
This is really a good news for users who plan to run Anti-Virus on Windows 10 tablets.
Editors' Note (10/11/2017): We are aware of the allegations of Kaspersky Labs' inappropriate ties to the Russian government.
Until we see some actual proof of these allegations, we will treat them as unproven, and continue to recommend Kaspersky's security products as long as their performance continues to merit our endorsement.
I repeated that test using the commercial Kaspersky Anti-Virus and found that the addition of System Watcher (which I'll discuss below) brought that score up to 7.6 points.
I have an algorithm that normalizes the various tests on a zero to 10 scale and combines them for an aggregate result.
Avast and AVG managed an aggregate score of 9.2 points, while ESET took 8.8 points.
Clearly Bitdefender and Kaspersky are at the top as far as lab tests go.
Bitdefender and Kaspersky didn't fare as well in my own tests.
Kaspersky Free scored 7.2 points to Bitdefender's 7.1 in my hands-on malware protection test.
