    I'm going to give it a try on my laptop. :) On my desktops one has Eset Internet Security and this one has my Insider build so I use Windows Defender.

    Shawn, that is a stub. It DL a 148MB installer, installed, also extra stuff I haven't figured out yet. And required an account setup, which sent an email confirmation to click that went to a non-secure connection, which FF blocked.

    I'm glad I did a backup first.....

    Back after I restore.......
    Thanks for the warning, luckily I did not try to install it.

    I am seriously impressed, compared to other free AVs, KAF is not missing anything.
    Settings allow to customize everything, that an advanced user might want to.

    Not to mention, it is light, like really light, it has got 1% CPU usage at all times, even when playing a game, watching HD video and browsing internet simultaneously, unlike WD, which spikes up to 50% or more.

    Though, you might want to "Disable Encrypted connection scanning" to avoid replacing SSL certificate.

    The best part for me, it is the only AV, which was able to install and run with my strict settings. Respect.


    An account is not required, only if you want more data on the bundled trial VPN.
    Perhaps, but that's not what I read. It was good for 365 days, and said to register to never loose your key. Said nothing about any VPN. Least not the one I DL'd. I've saved the installer and restored back to before. I'll wait till the whole thing settles down and I hear more feedback.

    Don't worry COMPUTIAC I installed it and boy oh boy what a mess. Opening Edge caused a popup to appear. Going to Yahoo caused another one. Removed it and back to good old Windows Defender.

    Thanks for the update.

    Do you recall what the pop up said ?

    The licence is for 365 days, but I imagine, it will keep extending with updates.
    It is probably the same method like with Windows 10, to keep old versions dying.
    Kaspersky Secure Connection is VPN, 200 MB by default, 300 MB when you register.

    COMPUTIAC, It says disconnect or continue. But when you continue another popup says confirm. Reloading the page starts the process again. You do have a choice to stop the nagging, but for only 30 minutes.

    I have Malwarebytes (paid) and AVG (free). If I install Kaspersky Free Antivirus I would uninstall AVG (is that right?) but would Kaspersky Free Antivirus interfere with Malwarebytes?
