    Hi,


    From this site:
    http://www.kasperskylabs.com/products.html?tgroup=2&pgroup=10&id=25

    KAV Personal

    US$ 49,95 / EUR 49.91

    Components
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Monitor
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Scanner
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Mail Checker
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Script Checker
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Updater
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Control Center

    From this site:
    http://www.kasperskylabs.com/products.html?tgroup=2&pgroup=10&id=26

    KAV Personal Pro

    US$ 99,95 / EUR 100.85

    Components
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Monitor
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Scanner
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Script Checker
    Kaspersky™ Inspector
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Updater
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Control Center

    But also from that last site quoted:

    Permanent e-mail anti-virus filtration
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Personal Pro automatically check for viruses in all incoming and outgoing messages in real time, and will prevent viruses from penetrating your computer. Supporting many e-mail database formats (MS Outlook, MS Outlook Express, MS Exchange, Eudora, MS Mail, Pegasus Mail, Netscape Mail, JSMail, MIME, The BAT), the program is effective against viruses in e-mail message storage areas. In addition to this, the built in Mail Checker efficiently deletes viruses from e-mail messages, and completely restores the original contents of your messages.



    I guess that in the list of components for KAV Personal Pro is missing:
    Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Mail Checker

    So the only difference between the Personal and the Personal Pro version is the Inspector that is included in Personal Pro but not in Personal.

    More info about Inspector here:

    Kaspersky is checking emails for malware in a different way as other programs like NAV or NOD32 do. KAV is able to scan inside the databases where email clients store the mails.

    Yes there is, if you use MS Outlook (not express)!
