Just want to relay my experience: yesterday night I received this email message:

My Kaspersky 6.0 didn't see anything wrong with attached file, though I set it to especially scan it (I didn't attempt to unzip it, of course- but Kaspersky normally finds bad guys also in compressed files of all formats), instead I Skyped the message and the file to the local Kaspersky representative. He replied he will immediately send it to the KAV headquarters.

And behold- about 3 hours later, with fresh antivirus updates (Kaspersky updates are by default automatic every hour) my Kaspersky did find virus (Trojan Downloader) in the said zip file and deleted it.

I was impressed and surely will stick with KAV


P.S. On the second thought, I just changed that weblink in the quoted message, as I'm not sure if clicking on it as it was in original is safe.

'It really works well' Nov 29, 2006

Hi Uldis,

Iam a freelance professional from india, since many months iam using this Kaspersky software it really works well and its firewall system is really very hard to break for any type of viruses needed if we set the options pefectly. My system is safe because of this software, previously i was using Norton anti virus but it was not so effective to stop virus. Thank you for the makers of this antivirus. That is all i can tell about this.

I am using AVIRA in the firewall... Nov 29, 2006

... but have already (based on, oh well, gut feeling) decided to switch to Kaspersky. Thanks for the nudge.
