    Yeah, sure... and Norton ripped it off Windows Media Player. :D :rolleyes:

    Yes, :D

    But Zombini, you said: Kaspersky rips off Norton again.

    Could you give some other examples then :)?

    Zombini, I think we are all aware of your affection for norton products, but was that reference really necessary here. We are discussing the Kaspersky betas, not Norton. Oh, and IMO it is called evolution, not ripping off ;)

    It's a beta so you can't judge the performance (since additional debug stuff is enabled)

    Apparently when they released an Internet Security suite :rolleyes: But enough about Norton

    With 2011, it is now also possible to use an USB drive for the RescueDisc, nice for netbooks and it saves CD's :)

    Is Pure 2011 going to be named Crystal, or is Crystal a new product?
    Topic title from beta forum:
    "Testing new QSCAN update for KIS/KAV 2009,2010 and PURE/CRYSTAL"

    CRYSTAL= the name for PURE in Russia. I think they came to the conclusion that PURE wasnt an appropriate name for that region.

    Kaspersky is just bloatware.

    And your post Sir, is one that I would expect from somebody with nothing intelligent to add to a topic. In all honesty, why bother posting if you have nothing to say?

    Handing it to the Kaspersky guys, I like the new UI. I'm not a fan of cockpit-like GUI's where you'd need training to use. Keep It Simple Stupid!

    I may have chuckled a little bit!

    I think this year they got some new UI designers on board for sure, because previous versions had far less polish on them than this time around, and always caused a lot of controversy amongst the beta testers. This year the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive (so far)

    Kaspersky is heavy on resources.

    I don't know about KIS/KAV 2011,but KIS 2010 on my 4Gb RAM laptop is running 2 processes and is very light.See screenshot.I'm sure that even a low RAM pc could handle that.

    See, this is what you do. State your point and back it up with some evidence. The posts claiming heavy or bloatware are flame bait with no evidence to back them up.

    I agree.Bashing a software just for the sake of bashing....is not constructive at all.

    I thought KIS 2010 was a lot heavier than 2009, but with the latest build 9.0.0.736ab it is almost the same as 2009, which is quite light, though there are lighter suites, but it isn't bloatware at all.

    Evidence of it being bloatware?
