Kaspersky Antivirus is antivirus software for Windows that manages to combine thorough system scanning with moderate CPU usage. Kaspersky Antivirus offers if not the broadest set of features in the market - system scanning, password, and file backup manager to have full control of the hard drive. When it comes to web protection, there’s parental control, a safe browser, online banking protection tool, and so on.

Kaspersky Antivirus is supported by Windows versions through 7 to 10. The interface of the program is simple and well laid out - it’s a go-to option for beginning PC users.

How Can Kaspersky Antivirus Boost Your PC?

Kaspersky Antivirus is highly thorough when it comes to virus and malware scanning. The system check tool has three modes - file-signature scanning (this way, a user can catch known threats listed in the database), behavioral monitoring (the program tracks down system behaviors to spot unknown viruses and malware), and cloud-based analysis to check for suspicious software.

While most antivirus providers can only detect malware by scanning files, Kaspersky Antivirus offers ‘fileless’ scanning in order to protect a user from viruses that infect the computer’s running memory. This way, you will be able to catch dangerous threats even if they leave no trace on a storage drive.

A System Watcher feature provides PC users with ransomware protection. As soon as you get tagged by an attacker, the program will step in to roll back the files that have been overwritten. As to the overall performance of the scanning engine, it’s fairly precise and shows little-to-no false positives.

There are four scanning modes a user can try out - a full, a quick, a selective, on an external device scan. The status of a system check will be constantly updated along with the remaining time, the number of files scanned, and the path a system takes.

Kaspersky Antivirus Main Features:

  • Viruses, trojans, and malware protection;
  • Internet activity, emails, and download monitoring;
  • Unknown threat protection;
  • Daily malware database updates;
  • Detecting links to phishing websites and malware;
  • Browser vulnerabilities scanning. 


Kaspersky Antivirus allows Windows users to maintain a high level of system protection. The tool provides a large set of features along with the comprehensive user interface and little system impact. Overall, Kaspersky Antivirus is a powerful software for all-round protection, well-suited both for novice and advanced PC users.
