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

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

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

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

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

Recently I surprisingly found out that Kaspersky announces a free version with limited functionality, and it is in Chinese only(correct me if I was wrong), and if the product is activated outside mainland China it prompts an error, but this can be solved by using a proxy server (good luck guys tryin' to read those characters), the link is here:

??????? Kaspersky Free

There are several commons and differences to Kaspersky Antivirus:
-Pros:
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.
-Cons:
1. lol I cannot read Chinese (jokes) but yeh this is not very good
2. No technical support;
3. No application control so computer data is vulnerable to new ransomware;
4. No system watcher, system is vulnerable against zero day threat;
5. No Internet Security feature (firewall and network attack blocker) so system is vulnerable against port scans, DoS attack and intrusion activities.

It works like that, when you install it you will have to activate it manually to get a 36... Read more

Kaspersky Lab Presents a New Version of Kaspersky Small Office Security to Reflect Modern Needs of Small Business
​Kaspersky Lab announces its latest edition of the Kaspersky Small Office Security, the company?s security solution built specifically for businesses with fewer than 25 employees. This solution provides world-class protection and easy use without the need for specialist IT skills. New features make it easier to focus valuable resources on running and developing the business while keeping operations, customer?s and employee?s data secure.

Nowadays, small businesses are frequently becoming prey for cybercriminals because they generally pay less attention for cybersecurity while housing increasingly valuable data. According to recent survey results, the share of companies that allow usage of personal employee?s devices within the corporate network has grown to 62% in 2014. At the same time, although businesses realize that customer?s personal information (25%), payment requisites (13%) and trade secrets (12%) are among top priorities of their information security needs, they keep taking very basic protective measures, relying, for example, on free anti-malware products. Respondents indicated that they desire a powerful, but simple and easy-to-use security solution that would come at an affordable price.

Kaspersky Small Office Security is equipped with enterprise-grade technologies, but it was designed specifically to serve the needs of very small bu... Read more

Answer:buying full kaspersky version, do i need to unistall trial version?

If you already have the trial version of the Kaspersky product you want to buy, you can leave it installed and enter the licence key to activate it, simple as that. However, if you buy an edition different than the one you have in trial, then you'll need to uninstall the trial edition and install the edition you'll buy.

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

hi, so i uninstalled my mcafee A/V a while ago and instead i installed kaspersky antivirus. i use my laptop for gaming and never had a problem with that until i used kaspersky.
it now takes 2-3 minutes to start a game, during this time the laptop slows down a lot, and when i check my task manager it says that kaspersky is taking almost 100% of disk space. when the game finally starts everything goes back to normal.
is there a way to fix this without uninstalling kaspersky? i payed good money for it.

thanks.

Answer:kaspersky uses 100% of disk when i launch a game

Are you talking about all games or one game in particular. If only one game, temporarily disable Kaspersky to run and see if any improvement.

Personally, I would uninstall Kaspersky using their removal tool, it is a resource hog anyway. Chalk it up to a learning experience. Try some of the free AV programs, such as Avast or AVG, to find which works best for you.

Two days ago, I was browsing as per normal through Chrome when Kaspersky encountered and blocked the trojan detailed above.  Since it declared the program was blocked, I thought nothing of it after doing a cursory Malwarebytes scan, and another with Kaspersky.  
 
Today I rebooted my computer for the first time since that warning, and the first thing I noticed was a little lockpad-shaped icon down in my toolbar that appeared and disappeared fairly quickly (it's apparently some kind of windows process according to my googling).   When I tried to access Chrome it refused to launch, even though the program existed in the task manager.  I rebooted the computer several times only for the same thing to happen.  It finally successfully launched about an hour later, and it appears to be running normally but since that's super abnormal for my fairly new PC I thought I'd check in for some advice.  Is there a remnant of the trojan on my computer or was it just a fluke?
 
ETA: I get a message when I try to check for Windows updates that the server isn't running and I should relaunch Windows.

When you install a trial version of an AVG security product on your Windows PC you may not feel convinced to buy premium model. However, you may like to continue the use of free version. This is only possible when you uninstall the trial version and download the copy of the free antivirus program thereafter. The AVG Downgrader application helps you complete this process with ease. The program converts trial versions of AVG products into AVG Free. You can download the application from AVG's website under tools and diagnostic utilities section. You will need to restart the system to finalize the downgrade to AVG Free Antivirus.

I am aware that there is one floating around on Facebook but i dont have an account and dont really wish to create one for this single requirement.

Any assistance appreciated.

Answer:Kaspersky Pure version 3

Has your 30-day trial expired, and you're looking for a 6 months license for proper use? I have found that within a several days (or few hours) of usage, that you can determine whether you're going to keep or uninstall the software. Unfortunately, I haven't any spare.

Hey-
My hard drive crashed a few weeks ago. Computer store said they couldn't recover anything off the hard drive. My neighbor is a computer guy and let me borrow an external device to "read" my hard drive. He suggested using FileRescue to recover the info on the crashed drive. FileRescue has a free trial version and a pay version. What's the difference? Should I just bite the bullet and pay for the full version? I'm really just interested in recovering some pictures and excel spreadsheets. Please advise...
Thanks

Answer:Difference between free trial version and pay version of FileRescue

It depends on the extent of the hard drive failure. If the system does not recognise the drive you may not be able to recover anything at all.Typically, the trial version will show you what can be recovered but may not do so or with limited resultsTry Recuva its free and pretty good

I have used Kaspersky anti virus personal version 5 for a year and have been satisfied with it.
Last week I upgraded to version 6 when I renewed. Version 6 will cause my IE pages to hang. For example, if I open a new session of IE it will never get to my start yahoo page. Other web pages will not open either. If I exit (shut down) Kaspersky, my web pages will then open, but that defeats the purpose of having an anti virus.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what settings I could change (either on IE or Kaspersky ) so that it will accept IE web pages? Has anyone else had this problem with Kaspersky anti virus version 6?

The installation was done on a Toshiba laptop about a year old.

AVG Free completed the MS Office test in 354 seconds, while the unprotected computer took 395 seconds.
When I asked AVG evangelist Tony Anscombe about that, he explained that it has to do with how AVG 2013 performs its scans. "The new Turbo Scan checks files in the order that they're saved to the disk, as opposed to how they're saved in the file directory," he said during an interview at CNET's San Francisco offices in August.
AVG's internal benchmarks clocked "scan times up to 23.95 percent faster," Anscombe said. Meanwhile, CNET Labs' scan time results found... Read more

Are you comparing features like whitelisting, firewall, sandbox, HIPS etc?

Do they serve the same, different or overlapping purposes?

Correct me if I'm wrong. VS is meant to block/allow applications. Can it block/allow Windows processes (eg. Skype, One Drive, exe, dll etc) as well?

I’m curious as to why the 3 user version is cheaper than the 1 user version.
I’ve noticed that very often they are either the same price, or in some instances noticeably cheaper (I’ve just seen the 3 user version at £15 less at my local Staples than the 1 user version right next to it!) Is there a catch?

Answer:Kaspersky Internet Security - Why is the 3 user version often cheaper?

It is worthwhile shopping around but make sure that you are comparing the same product eg 2012 or 2013, or Antivirus or Security Suite. There is no catch as far as I am aware.
BTW Amazon may well be cheaper.

Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool 2011 cannot provide continual computer protection. At the end of computer disinfection, the program should be deleted from the computer and substituted by full-scale anti-virus software.
Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool 2011 does not have a function to update its antivirus database. The only way to actualize the tool is to download it again from Kaspersky Lab servers and install it. It is also necessary to uninstall older version of Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool 2011 before installing a newer one.

The program is launched without installation.
To remove the program, you now have to close the main program widow. As a result all traces of the program?s existence in the system are automatically deleted.
The program can now be started from a removable or network drive.

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!

I had an update to windows a few days ago. Now some of the apps are not launching. The following work as normal: Settings, calculator, paint, hearts deluxe, witcher 3, Machinarium. Those not working include: Asphalt, flow free, hill climb racing, super golf land - all games from the store. I have tried reinstalling them but to no avail. When I click on one there is a brief flash and the screen reverts to what it was. I have no problems with other programs installed.
I ran SFC - a few errors were found and reported as repaired.

Ran SFC a second time "Windows did not find any integrity violations"
Ran DISM - no problems reported
Ran SFC a final time, no integrity violations.
The problem with apps not loading remains as it was. The only other thing I have done in the last few days is to use disc cleanup to remove unwanted files on C drive, including "Old Windows"

Answer:Windows 10 - release version: Some apps won't launch

Would you expect everything to work? Drivers and updates are needed for some hardware and software. That's why I will stay with win 7. It's to early to change, unless you like grief!.

I thought I was just installing more updates from Kaspersky Internet Security when this program broke down my computer and turned off my antivirus protection.
 
I had to read through the terms and conditions and I guess I did not read them quite well enough.  
 
It slowed down my computer and made it completely dis-functional.
 
When I turned it on in safe mode and ran a spyware scan on Malwarebytes, it showed about 23 objects infecting my p.c. when previously there were none. It provided me with a long list of malicious objects to delete.  
 
I attempted to re-install my Kaspersky protection which had about 111 more days left on it.  
 
It would not let me re-install it and claimed there was a problem with the license.  
 
I felt stupid giving my permission for that new program to get on my computer. I was mislead because the dialogue box was identical to the one that's supposed to belong to Kaspersky.  Unless I'm mistaken, I think this was a virus masquerading as a new version of Kaspersky Virus protection.  I tried to get support from Kaspersky and got no help from them.  
 
When my attempts to re-install Kaspersky did not help, I installed free Norton protection for 30 days. 
 
I could not find any reports about anything like this on the web.  
 
  

Answer:What looked like an updated version of Kaspersky Internet Security broke down pc

You don't want to run more than one active antivirus as it can cause falsepositives and make your computer unstable.
 
Please post the Malwarebytes log.  To find your Malwarebytes log,download mbam-check.exe from here and save it to your desktop.

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 [18.0.0.405(b)] from: usa.kaspersky.com/free-antivirus

- Really good Cloud
- Good virus removal ability

- Protection is good enough just for advanced users only i think.

Microsoft will release the next version of the Internet Explorer Web browser, with improved security, in preliminary form this summer. Microsoft is moving up the release amid rising security concerns and new competition from the open-source Mozilla Firefox browser.

Microsoft will offer the finished version of its recently acquired anti-spyware technology free to individual Windows users. That could pose a new challenge to the business models of independent companies that specialize in anti-spyware software for the Microsoft operating system.

Microsoft chief Bill Gates also said the company will release its planned anti-virus product for consumers by the end of this year. Microsoft executives said the anti-virus software will be part of a broader offering for consumers, but they gave no further details.

The series of moves, announced by Gates at the RSA security conference in San Francisco, highlighted Microsoft’s potential effect on McAfee, Symantec and other companies that sell packages of anti-virus, anti-spyware and other security software for Windows and other computer systems.

The prospect of competition from Microsoft drew a pointed response at the conference from the leader of one of those companies. John Thompson, chief execut... Read more

Starting earlier today, Kaspersky Free on a few (but not all ) machines started triggering a high threat level IPS event.

False positive? Either way this level of triggering of security can cause me some issues. Strange that it is not triggering on all machines, just a few. Perhaps some aren't updated yet or something.

Inbound to WAN1 from 37.48.82.67. Machine OUTBOUND to dnl-16.geo.kaspersky.com

It seems to have subsided a bit. But I am concerned because Fortinet IPS is not known to issue false positives for Medium/High/Extreme events. Any false positive prone events are under 'Info' category which most people leave off.

Kaspersky is one of the best detection engines on the market and has won awards for its detection rate, namely the 'VB 100%' Award which means it can detect 100% of the Viruses in the Viruslist.com

WHAT'S NEW IN KASPERSKY FREE

Kaspersky Free provides the following new features:
There is now protection against infection while the operating system is being restarted.
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.

MAIN KNOWN ISSUES
If the "Always scan encrypted connections" check box is selected, the application will scan encrypted connections even if you have paused protection.
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.
On certain websites, the application may block the download of additional pages in pop-up windows or frames. To resolve this issue, clear the "Inject script into web traffic to interact with web pages" check box in the network settings of the application.
If interactive protection is disabled, tasks for processing threats on your computer from the My Kaspersky portal might not be performed.

Hi I got "Kaspersky 30 day free trial" and all was fine until the licence ran out. I uninstalled it (or tried to anyway) but the uninstall failed 3 quarter way through! Theres a file in C/programs called Kasperskylab and I cant rename/remove or delete it.
The main problem was I got Avast antivirus but it wouldnt install fully due to Software conflicts or something (I cant recall exactly the phrase) then my pc froze and kept freezing on startup until I used safe mode and removed Avast.
Obviously I cant install a new antivirus until I lose Kasperskylab but as I say I cant delete or rename it etc, any ideas how I get rid?

Thanx in advance
 

Answer:Kaspersky 30 day free trial problem

have you tried removing kasperskylab in the safe mode also? maybe that might work.

After it was only available in Russian, Kaspersky released their free antivirus globally.

It is the same antivirus engine as their paid product, and supposed to be light on resources.

So I've been trying to install kaspersky free for the past few hours but to no avail.

The installer runs fine but during the downloading phase of it, it downloads normally for 51.8mb out of the 156.6mb then starts to "download" very fast all the way to 156.6 mb, after that the installer states that the installer is corrupted and the only fix that I can find online is download the installer and try again. But I've done that at least 5 times already but I keep running into the same issue

I've also deleted the previous installers before trying again, cleared cache using ccleaner, manually searched for my remnants and deleted them before trying again. I've also manually disabled windows defender before the install. But all the while I still come back to the same issue.

Has any faced this issue before? Any other fixes you think I should try?

I forgot to take a screenshot of it but it seems that other people are facing it too, here is a screenshot from the kaspersky forums that matches what I see as well

Howdy,I recently scanned my computer with Kaspersky Free Online Scan. The scan log indicated that I have a Trojan that has infected my computer. Below are the two items infected by the same Trojan.C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Norton AntiVirus\Quarantine\72BF65DB.tmp Infected: Trojan.Java.ClassLoader.ao skipped C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Norton AntiVirus\Quarantine\72C20FD8.tmp Infected: Trojan.Java.ClassLoader.ao skipped I searched for information about this Trojan and got the following results. (In order to enlarge the screen shot below to make it legible ,I had to disable my pop up blocker)I removed Norton Security 2006 from my computer over a month ago. It looks as if these items are in quarantine somewhere in my computer.After the scan I re-started my computer in safe mode and ran a scans with SpyBot S&D, Ad-Aware SE, AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 Free and SUPERAntiSpyware. The combined results were three tracking cookies.I then re-started in normal mode and ran a scan with Windows Live Care and Housecall, they came up clean.Are these items harmless ? I ask that because it seems to show they are quarantined. Regardless, I would like to do away with these items.Could someone please tell me how to locate these files (?) and how to delete them ?Thank You for your time.Dennis XP Home, SP-2, IE-7

Answer:Kaspersky Free Online Scan

Here is a link to Norton's removal tool. Whether it will allow you to remove the quarantined items or not, ????????http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...005033108162039

Hi.
Since they do not give us support in the forums or by phone. I ask the question here. The Opera browser with its VPN enabled makes the antivirus does not analyze the web. Do not pass the AMTSO test. No VPN works well. If someone knows a solution very grateful in advance.

At http://usa.kaspersky.com/kav-offer, 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 scan time
http://usa.kaspersky.com/about-us/press-center/in-the-news/kaspersky-internet-security-2014

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.

I might just get Kaspersky 2013 and keep avast! as an on-demand scanner if I can do that.

The Get System Info utility (from Kaspersky)is used to collect system information in order to troubleshoot technical issues. It is used in a variety of ways:
* Detection of incompatible software
* Detection of possible malware on the system (both known and unknown)
* Program function errors (installation, use, uninstall etc.)
The utility works in conjunction with the online parser, which takes all of the information in the log file created and parses this into easily readable tab form online. This functionality means that users with limited computer experience can trouble shoot an issue on their own. Download Kaspersky GSI

Gday.

I have kaspersky internet security but my license has ran out. Im just wondering if I should purchase another license or if their are free programs that are better? Or is kaspersky better than all free programs?
Thanks.

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.

Kaspersky earlier this year released a free edition of its antivirus software. its very basic and only offers anti-malware protectioh. Officially its only available for users in the Ukraine, Russia and Belarus at this moment, however the downloads of this product are not geo restricted. but you will need to use a VPN and obtain a russian IP address for activation.

Interface is only in russian and Ukrainian. An English version is apparently going to be released next year.
