    But if the Western World has collapsed due to an alian power (I won't mention names) your PC and your world would be broken. Scary stuff!

    Kaspaseky for free


    Ok well it has happened at last I have just gleaned this from a Kaspersky blog

    https://www.kaspersky.com/free-antivirus

    Of course I guess it will not be a full as the paid for but am definitely give it a twirl when I get chance after using it for years now as paid for - cheap as it was.

    I have posted it here because I don't know if we have a software listings like in 7

    You will probably get the same scanner as the paid version, just not so many of the bells and whistles. I think its a rather clever ploy on their part considering the attention it's been getting by the US administration.

    This Test Microsoft Windows Defender 4.10 for Windows 10 (171447) | AV-TEST looks very good for WD. If that's not enough you would be in trouble even with 10 AVs at same time.

    Yep am under no illusions dear old uncle Eugene will not be giving away much but as a dedicated user I think it will not be that shabby like some I have tested.

    Being cynical too Kaspersky has been getting steadily more expensive too as I was paying $70 for a 3 PC x 2 year all device licence but it suddenly disappeared from where I got that great deal. Another point to note is that their support site has now moved offshore from Melbourne to somewhere that sounds awfully like the Philippines and well it isn't the same anymore - the support I am meaning.
    You have me at a loss and intrigued too re what you said about the interest it has attracted in the US just what was that?

    Edit: Ok got it just sen the Reuters report on a Google and I can't say I am surprised after all the carry on going round over there just recently.

    I've found Kaspersky support very good when accessed from the UK.

    Yes Steve it was very good before like I said it went offshore and it annoys me that this goes on because it is hard even conversing with the call centre people and often the issue that was so readily sorted when the support used to be in Melbourne is that much more difficult to resolve.

    But it is the way of the world now eh? mores the pity because it is all greed driven.

    We are many who use antivirus for protection of our system, I have been faithful to windows always defend, from essential security, is currently the one I use. I'll give you a chance to use it on the second personal computer, try out guys. That consumes a minimum of memory per part will be fine.

    I've just totally lost my trust in companies that lure at you with free subscriptions at first, but when used it for many years they suddenly spam you with their ransom upgrades, killing the free subscriptions! That's why I call DropBox and Photobucket ransomware criminals.

    Ok cast mate if you man using Kaspersky for a bit then there reduction on the blog doesn't look to be much less than the paid for though I haven't had time to test it yet KISS (paid for) is usually around 170MB download and 96K running but hwta the free version will use I don't know yet as mentioned. If the straight Protection is the main use then it should be pretty good because I don't use Parental control stuff etc anyway.
