    Simple answer. There isn't an alternative, well not one that compares to it in terms of combined virus and trojan protection. Sure, there's faster AV's at scanning. There's resident monitors that take up less resource. There's AV's that are easier to configure. But at what price do you trade in KAV for another AV? Simple... protection! You'll have a faster pc, and spend less time waiting for your scan to end but you won't be as well protected.

    Btw, this is only my opinion. I've used all the main AV's and even the lesser one's. And all the main & little trojan detectors. It may not be the quickest, smallest or the most beautiful. But it's damn good at detecting those little nasty things we call viruses & trojans. And remember i am stating it's ability at virus AND trojan detection. So until some1 can find a piece of software that does as good a job at BOTH then i'll stick with KAV.

    To Muf from firefighter!

    "There is no alternative" said our Secretary of the Treasury about ten years ago. Now we have about 15 % unemployment (unofficial, not what the Gowernment says) in Finland.

    We have sure different needs, the resourses that an av needs let's say when you are surfing in the net, is an important issue for someone, that's why I use RAV. :cool:

    Thats good practical knowing there Muf. Iv been playing around with looking at the addition of a another product , to run , with my Kav lite as back up .But when its all said and done "I dont need it " And a product that provides good anti virus and anti trojon , worm , malware protection , that maybe slows my pc or maybe it dont, when its all said an done , I have not had a virus or worm or trojon or whatever since having Kavlite. They also update daily , even hourly , which shows me someone is back there working quietly as they should.
