Pros
Kaspersky Anti-Virus is easy to use, excellent at malware protection and capable of disinfecting PCs that are already infected.

Cons
Kaspersky Anti-Virus is at a level of excellence where it is a contrivance to name a flaw, so we will simply point out that just one competitor sometimes very narrowly beats it in some performance tests.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus is what excellence looks like when it comes to virus protection for Windows 7.


Kaspersky Anti-Virus wins the Silver Award for Windows 7 internet security because it is easy to use, effective at protecting PCs from malware and capable of cleaning computers that are already infected. But wait, there's more. Kaspersky Anti-Virus is also a winning antivirus for Microsoft Windows 7 application because of its antiphishing capabilities and for additional reasons, as we shall see

We place credence in the security software test methods and results from the independent German lab AV-Test, which demonstrate that Kaspersky Anti-Virus is in a class of Windows 7 internet security products that stand above most of the competition. During two autumn months in 2012, AV-Test continuously evaluated 25 antivirus for Windows 7 products. The PCs were 64-bit machines running Windows 7 with Service Pack 1. The test suite consisted of three main categories: protection, repair and usability.

The protection tests evaluated the software's protection against malware infections. One of the protection tests was for brand-new zero-day attacks. A second protection test was for malware that was not new but was no older than 90 days. The third protection test evaluated the ability to detect malware that AV-Test knew to be widespread and prevalent. Kaspersky did well in these harrowing tests.

The repair tests were for the software's ability to clean and repair an already-infected computer. Kaspersky achieved a high score for its ability to detect and remove actively running malware and to remediate any unwanted modifications to the system.

Kaspersky also did well in the usability tests that measured the average slowdown of a computer caused by the antivirus software, the false detection of innocent software, false alerts while installing or using legitimate software, and incorrect blocking of software that was not malicious.

Features:

One of the reasons Kaspersky performs so well is that it is optimized to take its antivirus information from the cloud, which means that the antivirus database stored on an individual PC is smaller than it has been in the past. It also means that the time for installation and updates is lessened. If any malware makes it into the PC, Kaspersky will detect any dangerous behavior and let you undo or roll back most damaging actions. A gamer mode contributes to computers' performance by not interrupting with updates or scans while you are playing games or watching videos.

Kaspersky provides considerable antiphishing protection so that you cannot lose your identity while you are banking online or conducting online transactions. Kaspersky also provides a tool to frustrate keyloggers: a virtual keyboard that you type on by using your mouse to click on the letters so that your keyboard strokes cannot be logged while you enter online banking passwords, for example. Kaspersky's built-in intelligence extends to preserving battery power by reducing resource use when it detects that your computer is unplugged.

Help & Support:

Kaspersky's personal support page contains FAQs and a knowledgebase, tools and utilities, help for installation and activation, extensive virus-removal utilities, software upgrades and how-to videos. You also have access to an animated virtual agent named Sasha who can steer you toward a number of answers to frequently asked questions. If you don't want to talk to Sasha, you can open a support ticket. If you require more immediate access, you can reach technical support via live chat or telephone.


Summary:

Kaspersky Anti-Virus is among the few very best antivirus for Windows 7 products. Superb at protection against malware and phishing attacks, it protects your identity and gives you a virtual keyboard so that keyloggers cannot record your keyboard strokes. If your PC is already riddled with infections, it tracks them down, sets things right and heals the damage. It does not consume extensive system resources, knows not to bother you during games and restricts resource use when your laptop is unplugged. We cannot identify a downside to Kaspersky Anti-Virus, so we recommend it to you with highest praise.
