How to keep your antivirus software up-to-date

The best antivirus software will download the latest virus definitions as soon as you start your computer, ensuring that you have the most up-to-date virus protection possible.
Because it discovers so many new viruses each day, Kaspersky updates its virus definitions every two hours to keep you safe throughout the day, every day.

Other security threats
Viruses are no longer the only threat to your computer. This is why it is vital to understand the protection that is given by your antivirus software.
If your software is merely an antivirus package, your computer may only be protected against viruses and not against other threats such as phishing or malware.
This is why we strongly recommend you upgrade antivirus protection. to a comprehensive product that gives full internet security protection.
In addition to antivirus protection, internet security protection should include a firewall, anti-spam, anti-phishing, anti-banner, parental control, application control and virtual keyboard.
For ultimate protection, try Kaspersky PURE, which includes all the features above plus more.
