Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal 5.0 with Maintenance Pack 3 triumphs in anti-spyware testing
25 Jul 2005
Reviewers from the German 'Computerbild' publication were unanimous in announcing Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal with Maintenance Pack 3 winner of their anti-spyware program test.
The Kaspersky Lab solution not only protects against viruses, but also prevents spyware from penetrating users' machines. As antivirus programs do not include anti-spyware protection by default, Kaspersky Anti-Virus was included in the test simply for comparative purposes. The seven dedicated anti-spyware solutions tested received ratings from 'satisfactory' to 'unsatisfactory', while Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal 5.0 with Maintenance Pack 3 was rated 'good'. The solution detected and deleted 90 percent of the spyware which was used in the test, and detected 99% of other malicious programs. The reviewers highlighted the fact that the solution was not disabled by malicious programs.
