    I have a few questions about KIS 7. First, is it better at detection and disinfection than F-Secure IS 2007? Second, are there any special settings to select when installing KIS? I know there are many modules with several options (esp. PDM/heuristics). Third, should I be concerned about the problems with chkdsk?

    F-Secure uses Kaspersky's engine as well as others.

    I'd tweak up the heuristics in KIS7, and possibly turn on the extended Rootkit scan...

    I've never had a chkdsk problem with Kaspersky 6 or 7.

    I'd set the firewall to Training Mode to begin with.

    The install process is a breeze.

    Never had any chkdsk problems (well, there is a 6-8 second delay at stage two, which does not grow - the horror :p ).

    And the threads all contain the same small number of posters that repeat the same things over and over and over. Not to say that they do not have problems - they obviously do - but they are the minority, not the other way around, as their repetitiveness and often aggressiveness seem to indicate.
