Shareware Softwares

Almost all computer owners eventually come to a point where their PC becomes more prone to Viruses, Trojans, worms and other things that can lay havoc to their system. That’s why Antivirus Software was invented, their purpose was to fight and block Viruses that attempts to get into your PC system. One of the most popular Antivirus Software is Kaspersky Antivirus 2011, although it is not proclaimed to be the best antivirus software, it is ranked as second to the best Antivirus software.

Kaspersky Antivirus 2011 does a great job of catching and isolating the latest malware attacks as well as a reasonable job at detecting known malware. Aside from that, Kaspersky Antivirus 2011 was an all-around performer in our malware detection, blocking, and cleanup test. The Kaspersky Antivirus can detect up to 95.7% of known malware samples in tests that rely largely in malware signature files. 95.7% is quite a score but compare to its rival that can detect up to 99% of viruses, it needs some more improvement.

Compared to its previous versions, Kaspersky Antivirus 2011 improved its performance in tests against live malware attacks designed to determine how well antivirus products can block the latest malwares. In this test, Kaspersky blocked 88 percent of samples, and additional 4 percent of samples. This is an above-average score, but compared to front-runner antivirus programs that completely blocked 96% of attacks, it’s a low-score. Aside from that, one of Kaspersky Antivirus’ disadvantage is when files are opened or saved, it scans malware slower than usual. But somehow, we can still expect that Kaspersky can improve in the future.

On the other hand, we found the Kaspersky Antivirus 2011 to be very well designed. Its interface is clear, easy to understand and very attractive. Compared to other Antivirus Software, its window has a scan tab, which not only shows a progress bar for the scan but also an estimate of how long the scan will take. Aside from that, Kaspersky Antivirus 2011 also held its own when it comes to cleaning up malware infections. Based on some test, Kaspersky Antivirus 2011 can detect all of the infections and remove active malware components in 80 percent of cases which ties the score of other leading Antivirus software.

Like other Leading Antivirus Software, Kaspersky is available as a box copy or as an online download that can be installed immediately. The product includes three licenses. The Antivirus is also suited to laptop or netbooks. Installing the software is very easy and there’s no need to reboot your system for the software to start.

Kaspersky also offers great support for all their products because everyone can easily access their Technical support online or from the program itself. For some issues, they also provide support-team member to assist you over the phone or through online live chat.

Kaspersky have some limitations and disadvantages, but atleast it ranked as the second best Antivirus for 2011. Who knows, maybe in the future, they will improve a lot and made it to the top?
