Kaspersky Anti-Virus New Version
I've noted virus.gr's December 2005 anti-virus test, which showed Kaspersky Personal Pro at the top of the list, at 99.46% effectiveness. But I also noted that this is not the "Kaspersky Personal" version available at kaspersky.com … rather, it appears that the Pro version is/was(?) only available through third party(ies) (and appears to be more configurable).
The good news is that, according to Kaspersky forums moderator Don Pelotas, Personal and Personal Pro are to be rolled into one with the advent of Kaspersky Personal version 6:
Pro & Personal is not continueing with the release of 6.0 there will only be one version. as well as a suite. So you may as well buy Personal, it will also give the upgrade to 6.0.
That said, it's a little confusing (or perhaps it's just me) to see the forums announcement of "New versions of 5.0 Personal + Pro released, Version 5.0.522". What did I miss? Are they combined yet? I'd guess not, because this is *not* version 6.
At any rate, I've gotten the Personal version and am pleased to note that it's much faster than an earlier version I tried. Also effective, and uses far less system resources than I'd seen it do a few years ago.
If you decide to purchase or upgrade, be sure to check out the sticky notes Kaspersky user forums.
