Kaspersky Anti-virus

It is less resource intensive than Symantec and apprently can remove some virus that Symantec can’t.

Is that true?

Will be appreciate if you can help on this and provide more elaborate detail. Thanks in advance.

Hmm... NOD32 uses least resource, and have a powerful heuristic engine. Kaspersky has the most extensive virus signature and also incorporates a heuristic engine but is not as powerful as NOD32. KIS also has hourly updates and a highly recommended firewall.

I can only recommend KIS to my friends and relatives.

Based on this review, BITDEFENDER is not better than KASPERSKY. IMO, BD got gold medal because it is cheaper than KASP. You can compare their functions, KASP even better.

Actually, Kaspersky has always been rated the best consistently, which is the same with Bitdefender.

I kno & agree. However, this has nothing to do with that site's "test methodology" (I'm unaware of any stated) or av ranking. Guessing it's more...watever's beneficial for site owner.

Kaspersky is one of the best just like NOD32.

Kaspersky is better for its signatures & NOD32 is known for its heuristics engine.

By the way, I am user of both Kasperksy & NOD32.
