    I bought it but the stories we all know about had left me with it on than off. I finally after the Nod32 ( what I had run on the laptop last 2 year) version 3 didn't work for me loaded KISS up and find I really like this program and all the extra benefits. It has it all , I'm certainly more than glad I tried it again, fast or faster than A veryy deep well thought out program than Nod & I feel more protected, FWIW I did do the chkdsk & no problems...Tip of the hat to Kav...

    I put KIS on my Vista desktop and could not be happier- no more software searches to look for HIPS, realtime spyware protection programs, firewall, etc, etc. I have some on-demand spyware scanners and that is about it. If OA was Vista compatible I might be tempted to try that but I am happy with KIS for now.

    Also have a NOD license I decided to put on a laptop I recently acquired. And now I am back to the HIPS, realtime as, firewall searches all over again for it. Never thought I would say it but I'll actually be happy to see that NOD license expire.

    [FONT=&quot]Good to read a positive post about Kaspersky.

    I found myself in the same situation as you larryb52 - looking for an alternative antivirus after being totally under whelmed by Nod32 version 3 & all its niggling issues (after 1.5 years of zero troubles with version 2 :thumb:). With Kaspersky UK offering such a bargain price on KIS, I just couldn't say no ;)

    KIS is such a great program, I am very happy to have made the switch.

    For me, the check disk issue has been blown out of proportion. Sadly, this "error" can & does happen to a small minority of users but not in the F.U.D increasing proportions you tend to read about in forums.

    Cheers.

    I tried KAV before NOD32 but that blinking "K" bothered me.

    very pleased & when you dig down into the program you find a lot of options & adjustments that helps a more experienced user give that ' it's to my liking feel' & to new folks it works fine out of the box but this is a tight well thought out program that has actually what I like more frequent updates. I think that is important today. I can't say enogh good things...

    NOD32 has real-time antispyware protection . With KIS all you need to look for is advanced heuristics

    NOD32 is not broke. Where did you get that from? Sure version 3.0 has bugs. Thats why most of us are using 2.7 which was voted #1 by AV Comparatives.

    Folks,

    We're simply not going down the KL vs. Eset road. Thread closed.
