Preferred Solution: Kaspersky AV Free after Rebate

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Question: Free after rebate?

I was looking at these fans for my girl friends computer, - XIGMATEK Cooling System XLF XLF-F2003 200mm LED Orange Case Fan PSU Molex Adapter/extender included, and it's $20 but says $0.00 after rebate. Are these fans essentially free?

Answer:Free after rebate?

I would download and check the rebate form (see if you have to recieve it by the 30th) but it is through Newegg so it should work unless the company goes bankrupt or something (even then they might be forced to honor it). When I did my build I got both of my mail-in rebate cards.

EDIT: In the reviews some people are complaining that it is taking a while for the rebate or it is not coming at all so I guess it is up to you. If you were going to get a fan anyways you might as well go with this one and at least try to get the rebate.

Does anyone know of any good sites out there which offers free software (or almost free) and even hardware after sending in a mail in rebate? I used to patronize CyberRebates, but they went down under like so many other dot coms.

I know that CompUSA often offers free software, CD-Rs, and even hardware after a rebate. I bought a digital camera from them for only $10 after the rebate. Many times CD-ROMs for free. But they don't do this all the time.

I was wondering if there's any good & reputable web sites which has such connections to utilize these rebates.

Answer:Free software after rebate?


have a look at this place:

It has a few sites to check out.

hi gents
i want to know the difference between kaspersky antivirus and kaspersky free . and what about this combo(KFA+ZAM premium+APPcheck free)+Malwarebyte antimalware on demand scanner . is KAV has antiphsing protection ??

Answer:Difference between Kaspersky Free and Kaspersky Antivirus

the only difference between KAV and KAF is that KAV has system watcher = behavior blocker. system watcher is one of the most powerful weapons of kaspersky that's why they charge you for that
they both have phishing protection

your combo looks OK to me. I can recommend that
but I don't agree with Malwarebytes because it seems redundant to me. zemana as the second opinion scanner is sufficient enough. It's realtime protection is different from its on-demand scanner. You will get better result with on-demand scanning than the realtime protection

My Kaspersky AV ran out of subscription so I decided to try AVG 7.5 free.
The one thing I noticed when using AVG for scanning "My Computer" scanned maybe half the number of files?? If not less...compared to KAS!! Could not find an option on AVG to add additional stuff to scan.

I was and am still using COMODO BO Clean & SpywareBlaster and Windows Firewall All updated to latest versions. Please let me know if this is a decent setup.

I'd like to know if the Lappy would be MORE secure if I shift to the latest KAS Internet security Package as opposed to hanging on to AVG free. .

Thanks very much for any advice.

Answer:Kaspersky Vs AVG Free

>> I'd like to know if the Lappy would be MORE secure if I shift to the latest KAS Internet security Package as opposed to hanging on to AVG free. Thanks very much for any advice. sikvik <<

I'd stay with AVG Free if I were you. I've used it since 2004 and I've never had a virus get through the AVG defenses on any of my 3 computers. It has caught a few things (while I was online) and "healed" them before any damage was done; but nothing has gotten through as yet. Additionally, just to be on the safe side; once a month I also use an "online virus check" called BitDefender Online Scanner - Free Online Virus Scan

Please Note: AVG 7.5 Free is out of date. Use AVG AntiVirus Free Edition 8.0 instead.

>> I was and am still using COMODO BO Clean & SpywareBlaster and Windows Firewall All updated to latest versions. Please let me know if this is a decent setup. <<

Sounds Good - but I'd add a software firewall if you do not already have one. Windows Firewall alone is very limited IMO.

Good Luck!

As much as I've used and advocated for certain free AVs over the years, I could not help but notice that one paid AV suite consistently dominated numerous protection tests, namely Kaspersky Internet Security. The protection scores of KIS were not usually significantly higher than the free AVs, but they were consistently higher. It has achieved the highest award (Advanced +) from AV-Comparatives in every Real-World Protection test since 2009, unmatched by any other AV product, paid or free.
So when Kaspersky recently released a free version of its AV, I had to take it for a spin. I downloaded the latest Kaspersky Free (KF) version [] from:

Download and Installation:

While the software was only available in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, China and in Nordic countries during its trial run, Kaspersky is releasing it worldwide. The free antivirus doesn't have VPN, Parental Controls and Online Payment Protection its paid counterpart offers, but it has all the essential features you need to protect your PC.

- Good web protect

- No behavior block (but has heuristic)
- Ads sometimes
- Good alternative for Windows Defender but not paid or other free AV.
- Protection is good enough just for advanced users only i think.

Kaspersky Free provides the following new features:

Added notification from Web Anti-Virus regarding pages containing adware or legitimate software that can be used by criminals to damage your computer or personal data.
Improved speed for certain installation scenarios, the first startup, and the first update of the application.
The application now waits a longer amount of time before displaying a notification about outdated databases and application modules when the computer wakes from sleep mode.

If the application was installed in Windows 7 and you upgraded the operating system to Windows 10 but now want to revert back to Windows 7, you are advised to uninstall the application and install it again after reverting back to Windows 7.

At, one can now download a year's license of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013! for free. Of course, Kaspersky AV 2014 is now out. AV 2014 has some impressive-sounding new features :

Zero-day, Exploit and Targeted Attack (ZETA) Shield Technology

Automatic Exploit Prevention technology, which scans programs for behavior typically found in exploits

improved protection against ransomware

improved scan time

Suppose your budget is tight and you don't want to buy an AV. Would it be a good idea to go ahead and get Kaspersky 2013, which did extremely well in recent testing?

Has anybody run Kaspersky together with another AV like avast!? I know the saying absolutely only one AV. But some AVs are made to be compatible, like Emsisoft, Webroot, Coranti, Baidu, ClamWin / Clam Sentinel, and others. I have read that some people successfully run avast! and Panda together.

Answer:kaspersky internet security VS Sas, AVira free.

Whether one antivirus is better than another is more a matter of opinion than fact. It all depends on what criteria you use for the comparison.

Having said that, I think the free antivirus solutions available are more than adequate. I personally use the freeware Comodo antivirus/firewall combination. Why pay for something when you can get it for free!

Remember though, all the protection in the world won't stop you from getting infected if you're not careful about how you use your computer.

There are several commons and differences to Kaspersky Antivirus:
1. You will get full and newest signature update(unlike 360 using Avira and Bitdefender engine it uses the signature released 9 DAYS AGO) and you are connected to KSN so nice cloud protection;
2. Four components are fully usable: File Antivirus, Web Antivirus, IM Antivirus and Mail Antivirus;
3. Very decent protection against known and recent (about and more than 1 week) threats;
4. Very light weight as the only resource consuming component is File Antivirus;
5. The main application is as well up to date(2017) and will automatically be updated.
1. lol I cannot read Chinese (jokes) but yeh this is not very good
2. No technical support;

So basically I only installed the behavior shield from the avast installation wizard. I was thinking having Kaspersky as my main AV along with avast's behavior blocker is a good set up. However, admittingly I am a novice, and I don't know if these two will clash. So far, everything seems to be going smoothly, but the WD notification icon is displaying that X and is saying I shouldn't have more than one AV installed. Thanks.

Answer:Using Kaspersky free with only Avast Behavior Shield installed.

I personally think it should work ok running these 2 programs if Avast is only enabled for behavior blocking.

I am using windows 10 on my HP desktop. I currently use MES but am unable to access certain games, puzzles on GameScene (ie) . I thought perhaps changing my antivirus would remedy this situation. is Kaspersky antivirus totally free for download on home computer?

Answer:Is Kaspersky antivirus totally free for my home computer?

Err.. MES, presumably you mean MSE but known as "Windows Defender" on Windows 10. If that is preventing access to games and puzzles then most likely there is something wrong with them. MS Windows Defender is usually quite docile. You didn't ought to be looking for an anti-virus that lets them through if they are dubious.As for Kaspersky, as far as I am aware they don't do a totally free version, only a free trial. There are free AV's around, such as Bitdefender, but as I said that doesn't sound like the right way to go for your game problems. What exactly happens when you try to access them and is there some reason you suspect Windows Defender is implicated?Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Answer:Kaspersky Internet Security 2010: Free Upgrade

Thanks for the heads up V_R I do like the new version, the only slight problem is that I can't figure out how to control access permissions for individual apps as easily. Perhaps I just need a little more time to play around with it.

Just scanned w/ Kaspersky for the first time just for maintenance and it said it found 1 virus and 1 infected file. When I look at the report though, all I see are numerous skipped objects (mostly locked Symantec files) and one hp file that may or may not be marked as infected. The hp file is


which is a legit HP utility that came w/ my HP computer. However, googling it turned up other folks who say McAffee sometimes falsely pegs this utility as a virus.

Could someone please look at my Kaspersky report and tell me if it looks like I actually have a virus that needs to be removed. Norton turns up nothing, and I'd prefer not to install the full Kaspersky program if I can avoid it, because I already own Norton and use Ad-Aware and Spyblaster too and that seems like enough.

I've attached the report.

Answer:confused by Kaspersky free online scanner results

There are no problems showing in your log. As you suspected the killwind.exe is just false indication. Many scanners detect this and a few other poorly named files from HP.

Here in Brazil the most used are Avast and Avg free, and honestly do not think the two are good because I got to use both and did not like.
The kaspersky would make a big deal bringing the free version for Brazil, it quickly dominate the market here, here ah many users of their paid versions, and certainly if it launched its free version in Portuguese would win quickly Avast and AVG free.
I hope they launch Kaspersky free to Brazil

Answer:Friends you think the kaspersky will launch its free version in Portuguese?

I don't think it will come out for Portuguese or not for a long time anyway.

Source: Kaspersky Cleaner is a free CCleaner-like program for Windows - gHacks Tech News
Kaspersky Cleaner is a new program by Russian security firm Kaspersky that has been released as a free beta version on the company's website.

The program has been designed to assist users in removing junk files and temporary files from PC systems running the Microsoft Windows operating system, and to improve their privacy on top of that.

You can download a web installer from the Kaspersky website which you need to run on a local device to install Kaspersky Cleaner on the computer.

Kaspersky Cleaner
The interface of the program is bare-bones currently. It displays a "start scan" button in the center of the program window, and four additional icons below it that don't reveal right away what they are used for.

You need to move the mouse cursor over the icons to reveal their function. They do the following from left to right:
System Cleanup - Clear Recycle Bin contents and temporary files.
Restore System Settings - Restore settings that affect operability of your operating system.
Private Browsing - Block collection and use of your personal data.
Remove Activity Traces - Clear cookies, history, logs.
If you hit Start Scan, all of the four tools will be used to scan the system. The software displays the issues it has detected after the short scan, and it is up to you to fix them automatically, or review them first.

You can do that with a click on one of the too... Read more

Answer:Kaspersky Cleaner released, a free CCleaner alternative

Awesome, thanks for share kev


Another issue with the current version of Kaspersky Cleaner is that you cannot customize the scan before you start it. If you don't want particular items scanned or fixed, you have to have them scanned anyway and uncheck them each time after the scan to make sure of that.Click to expand...

I will wait till they change that, so we able to customize it before scan.

Hi Geeks. Hope you're all having a geeky day! Anyhow, I searched the boards here pretty thoroughly and couldn't find any Major Geek opinions of the Kaspersky Active Virus Shield now being offered free by AOL. I went to (another place) and read a bunch of ops, but was hoping for some 'critiques from the geeks.' (BTW I just coined that phrase.) I've read about licensing probs, and internet access probs after install, so I'm not gonna uninstall my AVG free just yet. Thanks in advance for any input.

Answer:Opinions on Kaspersky Active Virus Shield free

Kaspersky is a good program! I'm a little confused though! I thought AOL packaged McAfee as their antivirus program.

However, I would avoid anything that has been integrated into AOL's software. You would be better off having the real full package of software from the original creator.

Saw the news on Malwarebytes Forums (posted by sman), and decided that it was too good to not share.Kaspersky has been toying with a free version of its widely respected antivirus solution for a while now on the company's own Dev Builds server.Recently, the company released Kaspersky Free to the public. While not the first free product that Kaspersky has released, it is the first free full-blown antivirus solution the company has released.The main caveat at this time is that the product has only been released official in Russia and the Ukraine.While that is the case, downloads don't seem to be geo-restricted at this point in time. Please note though that the interface is mostly in Russian which is problematic if you don't speak the language considering that it is usually a good thing to understand what a security message means before reacting to it.Also, you may run into activation issues if you run the program in a region that is not Russia or Ukraine. If that is the case, features are limited until those issues are resolved (for instance by using a VPN).Source: expect big things from Kaspersky's free Antivirus to be honest. Can't wait for the English release. It's the second company now that releases a free version of their products (Sophos being the first).

It has been annoyingly ?posted everywhere? and finally when the day comes, you need to enter the party host?s email address to receive the license.

For a limited time (promotion ends 2 PM PST December 12, 2009), Gizmo's is giving away DefenseWall HIPS v2.56 (no updates or support provides) for free.

DefenseWall HIPS is a popular program known for its policy-based (as opposed to signature based) anti-malware approach; it creates a "trusted" and "untrusted" list of applications and reduces access for the applications on the untrusted list.

DefenseWall HIPS works very similarly to GesWall which I have discussed in my article on best free security software.

Being a "HIPS" program, DefenseWall HIPS should not be used as standalone security software; it is what I call a "sidekick". In other words, you should have other security software, such as anti-virus/anti-malware and firewall, installed on your computer. DefenseWall HIPS will play along fine with your other security software, as long as you are not running another HIPS program.

The only reservation about this promotion I have is the fact that no updates will be provided. While DefenseWall HIPS can fair well without updates because of the nature of how it works, I don't know about you, but I would never run a security software that will receive no updates. Malware writers are continually "updating" their malware to break the newest and best shiny toys you can protect your computer with. It makes no sense for someone to use a security software that won't receive updates

There are different types of malware such as viruses, Trojans, worms spreading over the internet, and these kind of threats can be easily used to penetrate your computer while you are busy reading your emails or buying some stuff online. Malware can be embedded in attachment or in the body of a message. Same for a website you are surfing. Another dangerous form of malware is rootkit. What is rootkit? It is a program that will grant unauthorized access to your PC, and all its malicious processes will be hidden from your computer.

But there is still so many problems. The gentlemen who gave it to me was running it without an anti-virus for quite some time, only using the program spy ware terminator. In the "Reports" on kaspersky I have about 80 events, but on the "Detected" log I have 460 events and most of them are moderatly dangerous.

Kaspersky Lab has released a beta version of its solution for the "smart" home and the Internet of Things - Kaspersky IoT Scanner. This free application for the Android platform scans the home Wi-Fi network, informing the user about the devices connected to it and their level of security.

As the Internet of Things continues to increase in popularity, cybercriminals are eagerly looking for ways to take advantage of this growing trend. Instead of making life easier for their owners, smart devices are increasingly becoming a weak link in their security.

According to analytical data from Gartner, over six billion IoT devices are currently being used worldwide, and many of them have already fallen victim to cybercriminals. For example, last year the world was shaken by the wave of DDoS attacks launched by the Mirai botnet. The Mirai bots used popular vulnerabilities in IoT devices to infect them and turn them into cybercriminal puppets. Kaspersky Lab has developed a solution to help reduce these risks. With the beta version, the company is encouraging IoT users to protect their smart homes, and share their experiences about the performance and usability of Kaspersky IoT Scanner.

Kaspersky IoT Scanner automatically identifies smart devices such as Wi-Fi routers, IP cameras, Smart TVs, Wi-Fi printers, NAS network storage devices, media servers and game consoles, as well as computers, tablets or smartphones, in the home network. The solution "memorizes"... Read more

Okay okay...might be a misleading title since it's subjective, but I thought I'd share my experience. I saw that Staples was giving up to $400 in rebate for trading in an old piece of tech so I headed down to the store to check it out.
I have an old Dell notebook with an i7 processor that I don't use, which apparently nets me $400. I was content to get my Surface RT 32GB for $100 + tax, but when I talked to the guy at the register, he told me that there's another coupon I could apply for an additional $75 off! I said sure, and in the end, I paid $460, which after I get my $400 back, nets out to $60 :D
They reused a coupon code from a previous person's transaction, so I'm assuming the codes are reusable. I don't know how long the coupon is valid, but here's the coupon code they used: 16156. From what I understood, it sounded like it applies to lots of different things, so I think pretty much any Windows machine will do. Anyway, good luck!

Answer:Surface RT for $60 after rebate!

That's a good deal for sure. Perhaps add after rebate to the title so as not to be too misleading.

The rebate offer for North American customers (U.S. and Canada) is now closed. Thanks to all who contacted us.

First of all, please do not use capitals. It could be misunderstood as shouting.

How are you trying to remove the program, and from where? Is it available to uninstall from in Programs and Features? From typing msconfig in the start menu, opening that up, and going to the startup tab, does it show the program there?

I'm one of those suckers that bought Zone Alarm with a promise of a rebate and can't get the company to pony up the $$. They actually sent multiple emails confirming the rebate is coming/was sent, but nothing actually arrived. The company refuses to discuss rebate issues, saying they have outsourced that problem. However, the outsource company doesn't answer their phone lines.

I filed a complaint with the California Attorney General and BBB in Oakland. Zone Labs needs to stop ripping off their customers. I urge you to do the same if you've experienced the problem.

Of course, if I can't trust them to honor a contract, I probably can't trust their product either. Any recommendations for a new one? I switched from McAfee after it repeated refused to work post-renewal.

Answer:Zone Alarm - can't get your rebate?

I also highly recommend you install and update SpywareBlaster

i just ordered 5 items from TD totaling over (a little over) $800 but there's rebates for four of these items

i need to know what's the best wqy to get a rebate from TD, since i've heard many people having trouble with this, and most of them don't even receive the rebates/receive them half a year later

Answer:Anyone experienced getting rebate from tigerdirect?

i dont have any experience with TD. but i have goten rebates from others. these are the typical steps...

-register your rebate online if posable
-keep copys of all materials submitted
-wait for the designated time to pass after the postmark date of the rebate. if you dont have your rebate by then..
-call or email the rebate department, requesting thy fix the error, if thy tell u that u need to resubmit the rebate, also ask them for the apropriat fax #, and who to address the fax to(if its not listed on there website).
-if thy tell you there is no fax # or thy dont provide it to your. call or email the retailer (aka TD) requesting the fax # from there affiliat that provided the rebate.
-resubmit the rebate, and also fax the rebate, and upload your copys to an image host and email them your rebate.(i said upload to imagehost, because most companies will not open attachments)(this way thy cant loose it) wait for the apropreate time to pass.
-if u still dont have the rebate, there are ways to file your complaint with various Bureau's that will put pressur on the company. theres a thread about this here
-if all else fails after recontacting the rebate department ina last ditch effort to have them fix there own problem. and tooo much time has past. The blame ultimately falls on the retailer(aka TD) contact TD requesting a frefund in the amound of the rebate. and either or after use the same methode in above link on TD.

Please mail all required rebate documentation to the address noted on the confirmation page or confirmation e-mail. Please allow 8-10 weeks from the day we get your backup documentation to receive your rebate check. How can I know if those files have been received by Lenovo or not? I have tried to call the costumer service, but no reply. Message Edited by duzhuo1218 on 12-05-2008 06:12 PM

I mailed my rebate form, receipt (that Office Depot printed for the rebate submission) along with the original UPC with serial number, bar code label from the box on June 3, 2016.  The laptop was purchased on May 27, 2016 (Memorial Day Weekend).I received an email on June 28, 2016 confirming my submission, please allow 8 to 10 weeks for processing.I checked the status today and get this message: "Your submission has been received. Unfortunately, there was an issue that prevented processing of your rebate. You will receive more information in the mail with further details and instructions". What possible "issue" could it be? Does this mean I'm not going to receive my rebate??Reading other posts, I'm not the only consumer whom this has happened to. 

Answer:Rebate submission issue

Hi @C6-VetteGuy, I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post serial numbers and case details.If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, this post has instructions.

Hi All, I bought Lenovo L3000 Y410 Laptop through OfficeDepot. I got OfficeDepot reabate for $150 and cashed the check. I applied for $75 Lenevo rebate (entered into the system on 06-DEC-07) and received the approved email on 24-DEC-07. I left 8 messages to 1-800-830-0232 (it directly takes you to message box. No one really answers it) but no reply so far. It is more than 2 months that it was approved. Online rebate status shows this:ISSUED: Thank you for purchasing Lenovo! Your online entry was received and approved. Please allow 4-6 weeks from the Status Date for receipt of your rebate check.Status date is 24-DEC-07  Is Lenovo really sends the rebate checks? I never had any issues with any company regarding rebates. Worst case when I called them, they usually process the rebate. This is the first time in my life having this much pain for a rebate.Any body had issues the Lenovo rebates? Any suggestions???Thank you for your replyMessage Edited by AgoodUser on 03-01-2008 09:54 AM

Answer:Lenovo Rebate Issues

I rather doubt that Lenovo directly processes the rebates, but I would be happy to look into the process and see what can be done to get this resolved for you.   Is this still an issue for you?
Can you send me a PM with your contact information?
Has anyone else had trouble getting rebates?   Knowing whether or not this is a broader concern is helpful.
Thanks! Message Edited by Mark_Lenovo on 03-12-2008 01:30 PM

I have had a virus installed on my computer called rebate giant. It has 2 files on my desktop (one called rebate informer and one called rebate giant). I know how to remove files through the registry editor and was wondering if anyone had the file paths for me to manually remove it??


Answer:Rebate informer/giant

I don't think rebate informer/rebate giant qualifies as a virus. It looks as though it installs an toolbar and some desktop shortcuts. Uninstall the applications, and the toolbar, and delete the shortcuts if they are left behind.

There are no files in the registry, but there are references to files. Be mindful of travels in the registry.

Had these three installed on the computer, along with viewpoint media player. The computer was pretty slow. I went through the steps on the read & run me first page.

RootRepeal froze my computer, and I had to hold down the power button on the tower to get it to shut down. I tried this many times with the same results. The other tools ran just fine. The logs are attached. Any help would be appreciated. The computer seems to be running ok now. It ocassionally freezes up, though. I decided to uninstall McAfee both through add/remove programs, and also using the removal tool found here afterward.

Again thanks in advance. I'm just trying to see if the malware is causing the freezing, or something else.

I bought this laptop from on April 22 2008, it was advertised to have instant savings of $150 (i think it was that much) and a mail in rebate of $200 (that one i'm sure of). I got the rebate confirmation/initial approval email on May the 10. It said 4-6 weeks for receipt of my rebate check. It's now july the 28th, almost 8 weeks have passed. I went to the website and entered my information and it says there are no records found. I haven't bothered to call the phone number they give because everyone says they don't answer. What should I do? I am a student going to University in September and only bought this laptop because it was on sale. I can't afford for this rebate not to come...
