My favourite internet security suite for Windows, with one of my favourite anti-virus engines. The product is moderately affordable, with a 3 PC licence.
Kaspersky Internet Security only works on Windows operating system, and has a few safe run / sandbox limitations on 64 bit computers. The safe run feature does work on 64 bit computers, but not as well as it does on 32 bit, hence the one point reduction on the "Range of extra features / functions".
The program is very easy to use, but you may want to avoid it if your computer is slow. This program will hog your CPU if your computer isn't fast enough to handle the processes, which come along with it.
The Kaspersky Update Folder can only be defragmented while the program isn't running. There are several other services, which prevent a complete defragmentation, unless they are closed. I prefer to defragment the computer in safe mode, to ensure the hard disks are defragmented properly; leaving very little if any fragmentation.
The program can be configured through the settings, to meet the users needs. The settings can then be saved to a configuration file, which can be imported later if the program is reinstalled, e.g. if you reinstall Windows and reinstall Kaspersky Internet Security. Its a lot quicker to import a configuration file, than manually reconfiguring the program.
The program can be installed on 64 bit machines, in which it installs to the "Program Files (x86)" directory. This doesn't limit the functionality of the program, all it means is that there's no build of this program at the moment designed to run only on 64 bit architecture.
