What Reviewers say
While quite a few of the users of Kaspersky Internet Security have expressed dissatisfaction with it the majority seem to think it is a wonderful product. Chris Damon of New Jersey is pleased with the product and states, “It does pick up the viruses when you get them, it really works! All I can say is this is one super SWEET Internet Security Suite!” A. Yapp of Florida tells us, “I’ve never had the displeasure of using a more annoying Anti-malware software in my life.” Kimberly A. Staunton of Illinois says that the price is great and reports, “This is my second year with Kaspersky, its a great product for Internet security, not had any problems.” And G.

Pros and Cons
Kaspersky Internet Security, like other computer software, has its share of pros and cons. The pros include ease of installation and use. Another pro is the value offered to the user in that it can be installed on not just one but three computers. In the way of cons, users of the software tell us that technical support leaves much to be desired. The software is also said to hog resources resulting in freezing and significant slowing of PC performance.
Problems and Complaints
There have been quite a few complaints about Kaspersky Internet Security. Goldengate of San Francisco says, “They have strayed from what was a lean, mean anti-virus machine to “bloatware” that seems to run constantly.” The software eats up computer resources, Desert Hiker of Las Vegas Nevada tells us. He says, “Kaspersky literally takes over your machine and let’s you do nothing until it’s done. We have seen Kaspersky routinely take over 75% of system resources.” Having had no problems with the 2009 version, Gary Tucker of St. Augustine FL says the 2010 edition has lots of issues. “It slows the computers I have it installed on down to a crawl and at times they just lock up and have to be rebooted”, he states. James describes Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 as the most worthless product ever and says, “I can’t do anything on the computer as long as this worthless software is installed.”
