Hi all, 

 

Kaspersky 2016 comes out in around 3 weeks time. I have used both Trend and Kaspersky and they have there pro's and cons.

Just looking for some feedback on which one you would go for and why?

 

Thanks !!

Do you consider KGB connections to be relevant to your decision?

Eugene Kaspersky himself debunked that on his personal blog already.

Why don't you pick the one that you like the most? I have only used Kaspersky in the past, so my opinion is slightly biased.

After all there is no "one size fits all" solution regarding antivirus, and the best one is one that suits your liking :)

Thanks for the feedback

 

I do like both. Ive always been a Kaspersky fan , but found it to be a bit heavy on CPU

If you are looking for a lighter AV, then there is Avast or Microsoft Security Essentials (Windows Defender on 8.1 and 10) for free, and Emsisoft or ESET for paid.

KGB, Russian military intelligence, whatever... 

 

I get Norton Security Suite gratis via my ISP, so I don't really shop around for security software anymore.

I forgot to add my comments.

Although Trend Micro is as good as any other well known anti-virus program...IMO, it, like McAfee and Symantec (Norton), is better utilized in an Enterprise system environment protecting many client computers.

Kaspersky would be my choice if there were no ESET or EAM products available to choose from.
