Protection against all Viruses

Detects New, Emerging and Unknown Threats
The cloud-based security network gathers data from millions of participating users' systems around the world to help defend you from the very latest viruses and malware attacks. Potential threats are monitored and analyzed in real-time and dangerous actions are completely blocked before they can cause any harm to your PC.
Identifies Suspicious and Phishing Websites
Advanced anti-phishing technologies proactively detect fraudulent URLs and use real-time information from the cloud, to help ensure you're not tricked into disclosing your valuable data to phishing websites. Furthermore, Kaspersky's URL advisor adds color-coded tags to all web links to advise you of the danger level of the link and subsequent pages.

Installation now requires very few manual steps. When you first download the product from Kaspersky's website, it automatically checks for the latest product version, disinfects existing malware if necessary, and then starts the installation.
