does it really take three days for a full system scan with kaspersky? I was using NOD32 and it would take maybe an hour or two. WTF..3 days to scan maybe 150gb.. you gotta be kidding me.

yeah I am seriously thinking about going back. This POS isn't worth it.. cpu utilization is through the roof with this thing.

I'm hearing a lot of negative feedback about Kaspersky. i'm sticking with NAV & so far it seems ok.

Agreed. Avast is so very overlooked and its really to bad as its the best one IMO.

I'm using Kaspersky and love it. Full scan takes less than an hour on my 150 GB.

Same here. Also something to note is that Kaspersky might scan a little slower when first installed but things speed up tremendously once its had a run-over of the files once.

one thing to check would be how much of the cpu usage it's allowing itself to use.

i.e. if i remember correctly you can change from normal, high, low, etc. Change the CPU usage for it in the settings and see if that helps.

either your CPU is at 60%+ utilization, or your HD is having a hard time being read, scan it for errors

I use Trend Micro PC cillin 2008 and i love it, very low on resources and does a really good job at what it's supposed to do.

I tried Kaspersky and uninstalled it the same day i installed it.....It is a POS.

also that timer can decrease/increase greatly at any given time depending on what kind of files it's currently scanning. if it's scanning a file that takes a really long time it's estimation is based on asssuming that all of the files are going to be like that. this happens with many programs.

AVG here aswell, updates every day, very easy in use, no problems yet ...

Just sometimes a false-positive

Norton, crap kaspersky crap bitdefender crap, only decent symantec is the corporate version , making sure that the network scannig is switched off.

Stick with avg avast or antivir, they don't have fancy interfaces but they are as good as they get for actual scanning and a small resource factor.

Norton home security is the worst piece of **** i have ever used, luckily not on my home pc.

Never had any problem with kaspersky here. Something's wrong with your system (don't get it wrong, I'm not accusing you of anything), it's definitely not normal for karspersky to be so slow.

I agree, it has to be an issue of sorts. I have been using Kaspersky, NOD32 and Kaspersky Enterprise for my company and never had any of them run slow(I use Kaspersky solely at home and recommend it over NOD32 for its ease of use for newbies).

If your trying to use your computer for music, movies, gaming etc it WILL slow down your scan for any AV application. Initially when you start Kaspersky it will give you a fairly long read it and as it reads/scans the drive it will provide you with a more accurate reading. Usual scans are from 30-60 minutes on machines averaging 100-250GB hdd's at about 50% capacity.

I used Trend for about 3 years until i just recently switched to NOD32.

Both are excellent, but i changed to NOD due to a friends recommendation.

Kaspersky actually has a higher rate of finding viruses then any other programs.

Sorry to bump but I figured I'd warn any kaspersky user. I recently updated to version 7.0.1.325 and noticed it has quite a few issues with slowdowns. Its documented on their site and they recommend going back to 7.0.0.125 which I find to works great and fast. Some of the issues I noticed is increased load time for apps (especially web browsers and outlook) and intermittent pauses which are extremely annoying. Anyways, I thought I'd save everyone the trouble. I know I don't like to redo my firewall rules one bit.
