Comparative Tests

Kaspersky® Anti-Virus 5.0, the latest version of the popular antivirus solution, received high marks in the July issue of PC Direct, a French IT publication. The magazine's editors awarded the program 'Best Performance' status.

The PC Direct testers noted that the new version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus is highly reliable and provides multiple choices for ensuring comprehensive protection. The solution effectively monitors virus entry points, while multi-tier scanning protects files, file operations and email systems. Kaspersky Anti-Virus is especially good at detecting malware in compressed files: malware is detected and disinfected in ZIP, ARJ, CAB and RAR formats. Regular updates, released every 3 hours, offer real protection from the newest threats.

The testers commended the improvements in version 5.0, including the new interface and the increased scanning speed, particularly noticeable when handling large amounts of data. Alongside these new features, the solution still offers the exceptional detection rates which Kaspersky Anti-Virus is renowned for - the program detected all of the malware in the PC Direct collection.

PC Direct singled out the new interface for special notice. They praised the clear design and ergonomic structure. The user-friendly menu provides users with three clear choices: all users need to do is to choose a security level and the program takes care of the rest.

The review concluded 'an antivirus that monitors inconspicuously scans the disk at regular intervals and cures 99% of infections - you can be sure it's Kaspersky. The new version 5.0 confirms the company's reputation for excellence.'
