Page content

Basic Features (4 out of 5)

We still live in a time where computers are still new. Many people are not as tech savvy as others. K7 AntiVirus does a great job of keeping the graphical user interface very easy to understand. If there is one thing I hate about some AntiViruses is that some are vey heavy on system resources. I was very glad to find that K7 had a light footprint on my system. The program protects the user from viruses, trojans, malware, spyware, key loggers, rootkits, and other dangeorus exploits.

The Scanner (4 out of 5)

This program came with a powerful, yet fast, scanner. Besides having a fast and powerful system scanner, K7 had a real time scanner. Real time scanners help you when you download or open a file that may be infected with some type of virus. When I did a system scan i was please to find that my computer did not slow down one bit. The scanner is also very easy to use. The scanner is certified by Virus Bulletin.

Anti-Spyware (4 out of 5)

The program’s anti-spyware is certified by Checkmark. The anti-spyware will help stop people from tracking and viewing what you are doing online or what you are just doing on the computer. Most spyware can slow down your computer. K7’s anti-spyware does its job while keeping a very low need of your computer’s resources.

Updating (5 out of 5)

The AntiVirus does update on its own. The update will automatically install when available. This does make a easier on the user’s part of keeping the computer up to date with the latest virus protection. The software can update a few times each day, this does assure the user for the best protection from the latest internet threats. The updates were also very small and once again were very fast.

Final Thoughts (4 out of 5)

After testing out this product I have came to a conclusion about how it is. The main thing I liked about it was it’s speed and graphical user interface. This was an excellent product and did have very good malware protection. It did what it said it will do. If anyone is looking for an antivirus that is simple and effective this is the one for them
