No gadget for PURE users?

Recommended Posts

No, because gadget is installed with 2011 versions of KIS/KAV, and PURE is based on KIS 2010, which doesn't have it. Next PURE will be based on 2012 KIS.

When can we expect Pure 2 to be updated to 2012? I bought pure thinking I would have the latest program.

Welcome.

When...?
Sometime around when it is ready-ish.

 

There are no concrete time frames to base any expectations. Later this year? Maybe. Early next year? Maybe. Later next year? Maybe.

 

Forum beta testing for the next PURE to begin this coming Autumn? Maybe. Maybe some other time? Maybe.

Well I guess I will go ahead and issue a refund and get KIS 2011 since it's newer. Sucks, I kinda wanted the BETTER package to actually be BETTER.

I am disappointed as well. I thought PURE would have at VERY LEAST all of the features as KIS. Now I wish I had not paid for 3 years. What a ripoff. :angry2:

Extremely annoyed too. The license renewal gave me a choice KIS 2011 (not 2012 and this is last night 24th June) or UPGRADE to Kaspersky pure. One could be forgiven for thinking "upgrade" means you are getting something better than you had previously.

 

I'm not concerened about Pure being based on KIS2010, it will be updated to parity with KIS2012 nor losing the gadget which I found very useful. I'm annoyed that Kaspersky, a company I have trusted for many years, can do such a thing, it's sharp practice at best. It isn't an UPGRADE, it's an ALTERNATIVE based on older technology, probably rushed out of the door to claw back development costs. That's ok, makes sense to base it on trusted software, just be honest about it and don't mark it as an upgrade until it actually is.

 

Jeff, annoyed my first post is a complaint.

2011....

 

So where then is my gadget which like I said, I found a very useful "at a glance" indicator of something being wrong (or not).

 

If it is based on KIS2011 then I still say it is not an upgrade if KIS2012 is current and if I had known that I'd have gone with KIS2012.

 

Look, it's my fault, I got the annoying "you license is running out" box, then the "your license expires soon" email and just pressed the renew button without digging deeper, bet your life that won't happen next year.

I don't see what there is to be so annoyed about....unless one wants to be annoyed at all costs about something or that you're really annoyed with yourself. It's a gadget which has a few shortcuts, it has nothing to do with security which after all is the main focus. KIS whether 2010/11/12 is made for one kind of users and PURE yet another. It's not possible to take all product lines and just release them all at the same time as the development is very time consuming so they are released at different times during the year. What should be the most important thing is that the dection is the same whether PURE or KIS.

 

PURE has some functions KIS does not have and vice versa which where deemanded by some users, so that's why you upgrade to that if those functions are important.

Hi. I just installed Kapersky Pure 2011. I searched on the internet, but I didn't find anything. :dash1: I was wondering if this product has a Windows 7 gadget. I do not have any gadget, and no gadget have been installed with the program. A download link if can:D.

 

TNX, here Joe :cb_punk:

Welcome.

Kapersky Pure 2011.
PURE 2011 is a bit of a misnomer as your probably installed PURE R2 version 9.1.0.124. PURE currently is built onto 2010 architecture with many added features. Version 2010 did not have the gadget and neither does PURE R2. The next version of PURE from what I understand is going to built using version 2012 as it's base, and will include the gadget, but not sure when this is planned.

I am annoyed at myself mostly Don, look I trusted KIS totally, it has NEVER let me down and Kaspersky have quite a few customers just off my recommendations over the years. The enticement to Pure was just done badly, there was no mention of it being based on an earlier version of the software. If the detection engine in KIS2010 is the same as KIS2012 and just as effective then I have no problems at all. I'm just saying they should have made it plain and I would not have "upgraded", I suspect Kaspersky are trying to recoup development costs of Pure while it is still in development. Nothing wrong in that, I use CAD software that runs into thousands of GBP and they do this every release but at least you know where you stand.

 

Ok, I'll quit complaining now except to say if I don't get my gadget back soon, "the boys" will be round to extract it forcibly ;)

Hi

 

I have just upgraded to "Pure" but notice that I no longer have the desktop gadget showing. I always found this reassuring - is there one for "Pure"?

Upgraded to PURE 2.0 (now under 2012 core ?), still no gadget ? I can't find one at least...

Welcome. Correct. The Gadget Era is over. Windows 8 will have no gadgets, last I heard. PURE 2.0 has no gadget. :)

Thanks for your answer richbuff.

 

Gadget area over ?.... and for PURE it never even started, now its over, what a crime.

 

As far as Windows 8 goes, yeeeaaaaa, I don't see myself wasting my money on it with a system that is already running 7. Metro is fine on a Slate, but the consumer preview didn't blow my skirt up as far as a desktop is concerned.

 

So that means 7 might just be my next Windows XP as far as longevity goes for my 4 desktops (all running 7). And I'll be running my 5 gadgets on mine for a loooong time ;)

 

Again, thx richbuff.

Aimed soley at Kaspersky Labs:

 

I will take what a moderator says as correct regarding no gadget in PURE 2.0. I patiently waited for it (like others here) through PURE 1, PURE 1 R2, and now PURE 2.0... I am a happy Kaspersky PURE owner, and will remain as such. I would be lying if I said, as I renewed and decided to put more money towards your premiere home product (?), that I wasn't discouraged to see that: AVAST, Norton Internet Security, AVG, etc... ALL have a gadget !!! They are useful. Even KIS has it !!!, but not PURE, now running the same CORE ?

 

I would suggest you missed fulfilling more than just this customers need, and that it wouldn't have taken much effort ?(again, KIS has it)...

 

It looks like I will be running 7 for some time, with PURE, and no gadget as a HAPPY Kaspersky customer... take it for what it's worth.

Hi,

 

I just upgraded to Pure2.0 last week and I am disappointed to see no option for the gadget. It was handy tool to quickly access the settings based upon visual alerts.

 

And I disagree with comments about not having this option. Because it is the most efficient way of interacting with computers' status related to virus/firewall/updates settings and alerts. Now I have to deal with popup messages in system tray (annoying).

Yes, there is no gadget in PURE 2.0. So will do KIS2013.

Does it mean that PURE 2.0 is the primogenitor of KIS2013? ;)

Welcome. Gadget? What's a gadget? Is it a thing from a bygone era?

 

Whatever it is, it appears that your guess is correct. :)
