    For what I know, apart from the nag screen, if you don't register you can't use Kaspersky cloud feature (KSN), which is a must have for new malware protection

    Both Russia and USA are directly involved, so they newspapers should not be taken as being obiective in this matter.

    I wouldn't say that AV are effective. I have did some testing 3 years ago. I infected my Windows system on purpose. Then I have scanned it from Live CD by 2 AVs, then I did online scan by MBAM. All three products had updated virus definitions and after scanning by these 3 products, my OS was still infected by for example two malicious Firefox addons.
    By online I don't mean inside browser. MBAM was installed inside system and did run online meaning inside infected OS.

    I suppose it's just a coincidence that Eugene Kaspersky graduated from The Technical Faculty of the KGB.

    It really doesn't matter whether that is coincidence or not once the state and their media ****** decide what is going to be the story, that is what the story is and the masses will suck it up regardless.

    How would the German's know, Obama (NSA) hacked Merkel's phone for years apparently and German Intelligence were clueless.

    I suggest to create a new topic about a possible connection of Kaspersky with KGB... this topic should be for the product itself only

    It isnt a question of coincidence, it is more a lack of choice thing; where in CCCP one could study applied maths without KGB or gov interference?

    LOL, good point. And you know what they say, "where's smoke there's probably fire." I wouldn't be surprised if KAV is actually being used by the Russian government to ex-filtrate data, either via a backdoor or by exploiting security holes inside KAV. It's not clear if Kaspersky Lab is actively involved with spying, but there is no way I would install any or their products. But I don't trust other AV companies either.

    I fully support that wish.
    All this paranoid discussions are completely useless in this technical forum.
