  1. I wonder if these current Kaspersky sale offers will be honored? https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/kaspersky-computing-accessories/software/internet-security-and-antivirus/323_3082_30145_1557_xx/xx_xx_xx_xx_5-6-7-8-criteria.html
  2. Can you let me know which download you used? The KIS 2015 accepted the "old" 2014 Activation code which I told the program to keep before uninstalling KIS 2014. So I had 33 days left on this license. BUT when trying to add a new license then I saw the Error window and the "new" code was not accepted.
  3. In same position as Wooly747, trying to upgrade KIS 2015 with an activation code for KIS 2014 (license has 33 days left). Getting activation code error-"Cannot register activation code as a new code". I then checked renewal email from Barclays UK and it states that "activation code will only work with KIS 2013 and 2014". Would be interested to hear if any Brit has managed to activate KIS 2015, particularly if they have a 2014 code from Barclays Bank.
  4. Amazon UK have a 1-year, 3-user license for KAV 6 for £11. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kaspersky-Anti-Vir...xgy_sw_h__img_b Great value for those of us with multiple machines, particularly if you can upgrade to version 7.
  5. I know that the File Scanner can use both iSwift and iChecker but I thought that if the iSwift technology was not selected for in the scan settings then the RTM would not be able to use this feature!
  6. The TR of KAV 7 still has iChecker and iSwift as Advanced Scan options.
  7. A mention of Claire Rule of the UK Sales department; just as fast and efficient as the support staff. I had some queries this morning about license renewals and my problem was sorted in no time.
  8. Even after the first intial scan, there is not much fragmentation of files and most is seen in the KAV report files being built up. TR of KAV 7 with only IChecker enabled; not ISwift.
  9. I have recently tried out the TR of KAV 7 and I also found a lot more fragmented files after the first scan. BUT subsequent scans showed a lot less fragmentation. Probably related to SSK's comment on KAV building up its report store. Overall, I have only seen a slight pause in Phase 2 of chkdsk (<15s) with both KAV 6 or this TR, no file errors but slightly more fragmentation as stated which does improve on later scans. When the gold release is available I will install without ISwift and see what effect this has on both performance, fragmentation and the MFT.
  10. Hi Mike Maybe you could archive the genuine KAV threads rather than close it down entirely?
  11. Sad to see the state of the KAV ICE Forum. It was the one that a lot of us used before this official one.
  12. Although a KAV user since AVP 3.0, if you have this number of computers to protect, I would only buy a KAV license for the one(s) that has all your important data on. Then for minimal cost, if you practise safe hex and visit safe sites, go with a free solution, such as AOL's AV/Avast/AVG or a commercial AV such as F-Prot for Windows which has a very generous offer for multiple computers. KAV and any of the other big commercial scanners will not give you protection for minimal costs. The best in any field costs bucks, particularly when multiple copies are required.
  13. With a couple of kids off to University, IME, 3-5 computers in a household is not uncommon. At the present time, we have 5 computers in the household but I would certainly not classify this family as "wealthy". Moreover, prices of desktops/laptops are tumbling fast! The main advantage to me would be that license renewals are done in one go and the "expert" in the family should be able to identify any problems quite quickly using only 1 AV rather than a number of different ones installed on multiple computers. A small discount would be secondary to this. With the new version just released, F-Prot for Windows is becoming more attractive.
