Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015

For Windows users, an antivirus program is a must-have in order to keep online privacy and security intact. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 ($39.95 for one year of protection on one PC, $59.95 for one year on three PCs, with discounts available online) is a very good choice. The latest entry-level product from Kaspersky Lab, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015, combines top-notch antivirus protection with extra features such as a bootable rescue disk and tools for improving your PC's performance.
Kaspersky is a solid option for protecting your PC from malware. However, a relative lack of extra security features, an inefficient interface and a measurable performance impact keep it from being our top pick.

Setup and Interface

I downloaded Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 from the company website and clicked through the Installation wizard. The program requires 480 MB of free disk space. Downloading took 10 minutes over our office Wi-Fi connection, which is on the longer side compared to some other programs we tested.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 works on Windows 8, 8.1, 7 and Vista. It also works on XP, which is good news for people who won't, or can't, switch over from that no-longer-supported operating system. Kaspersky's website notes that some product features many work only on 32-bit versions of Windows. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 has an updated interface, retaining the cool white and aqua colors but getting rid of its side menus in favor of a cleaner-looking interface with square icons.

At the top of the main interface, a rectangular header displays the computer's protection status. Below are four rectangular icons reading Scan, Update, Reports and Virtual Keyboard. Below those is Show Additional Tools; clicking on this reveals a menu for other features. Kaspersky's layout looks good aesthetically, but it prioritizes the various features of its antivirus engine, and relegates its other security tools, such as the Privacy Cleaner and Rescue Disk, to the small Show Additional Tools menu. This is an inefficient layout; I see people using these tools far more often than the Update or Reports features.

Protection Features

To initiate a malware scan, click the Scan button on the main interface, then click the button marked Run Scan. The type of scan that then runs depends on the option highlighted in the right-hand menu: Full Scan, Quick Scan, Custom Scan, Removable Drives Scan and Task Manager.

Beneath that, you can click Settings and Schedule to set up regular malware scans. These are not scheduled by default, and the menu to schedule them is so buried in the options that some users may not find it. The Update feature regulates how often Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 updates its malware definitions. Updates happen automatically, and most users won't have to adjust this. Reports archives each scan Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 has performed, including results. Again, it's not something most users will need to look at regularly.
