Hi guys,

up untill today i have been running Nortons 2004 which the subscription ran out for last year and AVG and have also tryed Nod32 but the user interface sucks!

Anyway today i downloaded kaspersky anti virus 6.0 trial and zone alarm.

After playing around i found z/a to be a bit of a hog, but i like that it does have a fire wall.

Anyway....first question......

Are firewalls good to have? ive always had one so would like one does KIS 7.0 have one?

When will KIS 7.0 be released and should i wait untill that comes out and buy that instead of buying KIS or KAV 6.0??

What other virus programmes are able to be run with KAV and KIS? and most importantly what should i have?

Hopefully you guys can help :)

I would recommend KIS. You can try it yourself. See how it works for yourself. Soon KIS 7 will be released. You can buy or try v6 now and then up[grade to v7 without extra costs

KIS v6 does have a firewall, and if you purchase it after trying it out, the licence key can be used when v7 is officially released.

Hi pilotman,

IMO you don't need to run any extra real time protection programs with KIS.

It has everything that protects you in 1 package. B)

KIS uses very little system resources, can't hardly tell it's running.

If you want you can run SpywareBlaster as an added precaution since it runs in the background and works well with KIS.

Of course most people including myself has an extra anti-spyware program for occasional on demand scans, IMO you can never be to careful when it comes to keeping safe.

SuperAntiSpyware is a good on demand scanner to use, or AVG Anti-Spyware. Both are good and you can purchase or use the free versions.

Try KIS, you are going to love it, I sure do ! KIS is the Best. ;) :(

Just a few suggestions, hope it helps. :)

You only live once, enjoy life and make the most of it!

Might uninstall KAV 6.0 and download KIS either 6 or 7

When can i get hold of KIS 7.0 at the moment?

Your Welcome pilotman,

Here is a link for KIS 7 TR download.


http://forum.kaspers...showtopic=11188

This in in the beta forum, just read through the post and you will find the link to download.

You can use the 30 day trial since you have not bought KIS yet.

I am running KIS 7.0 TR with no problems and I love it. :(
