KIS 2011 - 2009 = BLOATWARE.
I'd say that your post is bloating the forum. How about actually telling us why is it bloatware in your opinion? I don't see anything bloated in KIS 2011.
Im using kav 2011 with defensewall 3.06 and sandboxie on xpsp3 with only 1 gig of ram and see no slowdowns at all, perfect experience for me and is a keeper
I recommend that everyone with Kaspersky 2009/2010 try Kaspersky 2011. I installed KIS 2010 some months ago and it was nothing but problems: restarts, freezes, slow-downs. After putting up with this horrible performance for 1-2 months , I reverted to KIS 2009. In April KIS expired and I mused over my renewing it. Finally, I renewed it with the hope of KIS 2011 being a better programme. And now I can say that KIS 2011 and KIS 2010 are POLES APART. As a matter of fact, KIS 2011 may be even lighter than KIS 2009 with the exception of the scan lasting longer (which is not a problem once there is an idle scan which scans the computer while it is idle once a week) and the computer boot also lasting longer (which is also no problem coz I boot my computer twice a day at most). Congratz Kaspersky Lab! I hope that the problems of KIS 2010 will not be repeated in the future!
Interesting how the experience of others can be different. 2009 didn't work for me as I had nothing but BSODs and crashes with it. I am giving 2011 a shot but so far the most stable for me has been the 2010.
KIS 2011 has been a great product for me, despite the initial bugs.
Testing on the patch 'b' has started - when it's done it should resolve some of the outstanding issues including the GUI corruption and Windows 7 Photo Viewer conflict, among other things.
Unfortunately according to what I am seeing on their forums this patch doesn't actually fix either of those issues. Yet.
Actually it fixes the photo viewer freeze if the patch is applied manually, there's just a problem with KIS not automatically updating the klif.sys driver when downloading the beta patch in Windows 7 (apparently caused by wrong update data in the beta servers).
KIS 7.0, 2009 and 2011 have been very light, fast and stable for me. KIS 2010 was slow (so slow that I disabled File-AV after installing it) and unstable, and I also hated it's GUI.
how do you apply the patch manually?
An updated patch with the driver correction should be uploaded very soon. I'd advice to wait.
Manual install it's a bit of a hassle since you have to disable self-defense, close KIS/KAV and replace the klif.sys driver in WINDOWS\System32\drivers with
or for 64-bit
I have tested the 64-bit and the Photo Viewer issue dissapeared.
I'll wait for them to update the klif.sys issue before trying the update. I haven't had any problems with the GUI but I'll be happy to see them fix the other stuff.
The updater now picks up the klif.sys module.
I have applied the 'b' patch on 2 machines and no issues so far. And it may be placebo effect but it seems faster to me now. I highly recommend giving it a try if you are having any issues with the 2011 version.
kis 2011 light on my computer
KIS 2011 on my computer is orders of magnitude FASTER than 2010 was. It took almost a week once for 2010 to do a Full Scan. 2011 does it in a few hours while I sleep. I've been using Kaspersky for several years now after ditching resource hog Norton.
As you've been using Kaspersky for several years, you've probably missed that Kaspersky is now considered the resource hog and Norton being one of the lightest AVs out there.
I have 2-years licence for KIS and I have mix feelings about this program.
From on side I feel very very well protected (I daily testing malware links from malwaredomainlist) - both signature and proactive detection seems extremly strong, but from other side I see some system impact. On my computer it doesn't seems to be resource hog but its definitly heavier than avast or norton 2010/2011.
I switched away from Norton for other reasons also. I'm quite happy with KIS 2011. 2010 was a bit problematic.
I too would be amazed if trying nis 2010 or 2011 (better still) you didnt feel as though your pc had just had a major hardware upgrade
I am running KIS 2011, and seems light on my system. Summary PCMag review:
Attractive easy interface. Excellent results in independent lab tests. Effective built-in support. Speed full scan. Bonus system tuning and privacy features. Rescue Disk can scan even systems that won't boot.
Earned mediocre scores in my hands-on malware removal and blocking tests. Erroneously identified two PCMag utilities as malware (false positives).
Kaspersky's latest antivirus looks better than ever, and independent labs consistently put it at or near the top. In my hands-on tests it scored well below what the labs would suggest, though, and it made a couple of serious faux pas false positives.

Cnet review by Seth Rosenblatt
That was true with KIS 2010, but KIS 2011 has scored well on all recent performance tests (Norton is still faster though).
@SevenSight:That's a review of KAV 2011, there's a seperate KIS 2011 review.
Patch 'b' has been released. This should fix the worse bugs around (altho many smaller remain...)
Thanks for posting.
This will fix most bugs. It sure makes things faster
