[PC] Kaspersky Internet Security 2018 3PC/2YR $14.50 (Email Key) @ SaveOnIT

1603

Mine is nearly up so I checked out SaveOnIT to see if it was the same price and low and behold its even cheaper! Unsure when it will last but happy to sign up again.

Hopefully works like the last one where you can stack the codes - refer naru6705/omnibane/neworder comments previously.

If this is not your cup of tea and you don't want to Putin your hard earn on this deal there is also Trend Micro Internet Security 1YR/1 Device $9. Note this one has been cheaper before $7 and free last year.

      Very true, also it is shown that AV can actually make your computer more vulnerable with exploits targeting AVs directly as they have escalated permissions, meaning it can do more damage when it goes rogue

      Windows Defender is solid, as is the free version of BitDefender.

      Windows Defender only works against spyware - it's not an AV. You can download Microsoft Security Essentials, , however. I think MSE is pretty weak, though, and lacks a lot of features that Kaspersky has.

        There is nothing wrong with using built in defender, as long as you are not a muppet that opens "Click here to win a free iPhone X" or visit dodgy sites and click on every popup and download miscellaneous files you have no clue about.

        My work PC has Kaspersky while at home 3 PCs only use windows defender, none has caught a malware. But I do use Adguard which blocks malicious sites as well.

          "Before Windows 8, Windows Defender only protected users against spyware" - so again, it's mostly useless for the majority of people who haven't upgraded to Windows 8/8.1/8.2.

          Who to believe?

          Win7 is the default windows in a commercial environment, while MS free upgrade to win10 from win 7/8 pretty much has ensured most people upgrade.

          Regardless, if you want to stay on old windows then you need to be more pro active with protecting your own PC.

          And all you do is pick and choose what suits your argument MrZ. Keep dwelling in the past if you want but a lot of people have moved on. Antivirus isn't dead, but they are a resource hog. They are fine until you start to play CPU intensive games.

          Windows 10 has had its hiccups, but so did pretty much all of MS operating systems. Every PC I own is on windows 10 with the exception of my Macbook which is running win7 bootcamp.

          Including work PC and Laptops I have 3 desktop PCs and 2 PC laptops, none of which I have issues with running windows 10.

          You hating on Windows 10 is like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LGTEI1RMoQ

          Windows 10 by itself pretty much never crashes, if you have trouble it is usually due to hardware or driver incompatibility. Since Win 10 I pretty much has never missed the traditional task menu, since I just search for the program.

          You are literally the minority of people whinging and crying about nothing, the majority adapt and move on, even my dad can handle switching between using Macbook and his windows 10 laptop and he is 60 and grown up without computers, and he still uses index finger typing.

        You don't need to download MSE if you have Windows 10 - It's called Defender in Windows 10 and it's built in (but is essentially the same software as MSE on 7 and 8).
        It is an Antivirus scanner. Not a spyware scanner.
        There was a time where MS's detection was sub-par but they've managed to up their game over the last few years and while it's not the best, it is up there.
        It has a small memory footprint and is not intrusive.
        Most people pair it with Malwarebytes to protect against exploits from browsers and plug ins. It finds the spyware and those unintentionally installed applications that come bundled "opt-in" with other dodgy applications.

        In short other AV's are a waste of money. Windows Firewall and Defender should be enough to keep you safe from viruses but you do need something else to protect you from exploits (which is what Malwarebytes is good at).

        Windows comes with a built in anti-virus called Windows Defender which is actually pretty damn good these days. You no longer need one of those third party AV suites bogging down your machine.

        Lemme guess you didn't read my post where I said don't click on stupid things?

        This stuff is useless. Even quality tech channels on YouTube agree

        Why would I share files with people I don't trust? Why would I share files period? If I want something, I'll get it myself.

    It's curious. Every time an antivirus product makes the front page on OzBargain, there's the usual chorus of, "just use Microsoft Windows Defender, don't click random links, don't open unknown attachments, don't download suspect files, etc."

    Where the hell do you people work where no one does these things ever… and will you employee me?! It's like at least a weekly occurrence at every corp I've contracted at.

    Likewise, I get one person a month from my extended family ring for help after they click on stuff they know they probably shouldn't. So if no one in your family does doofiss computer stuff ever, can you please adopt me?

    • +2 votes

      Majority of the issues will not be fixed by an AV program. Most are too intrusive and have too many popups. All the people I have helped have paid for anti virus programs. It doesn't mean a thing.

      •  

        You'll get no argument from me on that. And I wasn't intending to imply that security software was the solution, although I can see how my late-night, tongue-in-cheek, first-world-problems "rant" :) could be interpreted that way.

    •  

      You just have to have tech-smarts. Most people don't and that's acceptable.

      But just don't click anything that looks dodgey or even DO CLICK it and then remember the process to avoid those kind of things next time.

      Anti-viruses aren't really needed. They won't protect against the things that really matter. Just backup files every 3 months or get it automatically done and you'll be fine in all circumstances.

      Kaspsersky won't stop the end user from clicking random shit, it's exactly as effective as defender (0% if you blindly download & run whatever ads appears on your screen). Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox & IE/Edge all have blacklists that blacklist the most well known scammer sites.

      Best way to protect is to have the user running as a limited user and not give them the Administrator password so they can't install any downloaded software onto the machine.

    I stopped using commercial antivirus as it breaks HTTPS (AV certificate is man in the middle for everything, certificate revocation fails etc) among other things. I took up the Kaspersky offer from SaveOnIT last time, but am not renewing. I uninstalled before the 2 year key expired due to the problems with HTTPS, performance issues and so on.

    Kasperksy fails all browser MITM tests;

      What are you talking about. Commercial antivirus doesn't break HTTPS. I've been using Kaspersky Internet Security for ages and HTTPS works fine. Performance has been fine too. But i had been using an 8 core CPU computer with 16GB of RAM.

        I don't think you understand what the issue is. It appears that it works fine, but AV often breaks the point and security of HTTPS.

        Although performance will be fine, you will have excess CPU, DISK and RAM usage from commercial AV. So if you are actually using your PC and all 4 physical cores, then you may notice the slowdown.

      It's not possible to be a billionaire oligarch (as Kaspersky is) in Russia today without being in the dictator's pocket. If he defied the dictator he would end up in a cage like Khodorkovsky or dead like Berezovsky.

    I know that Windows Defender does a decent job, but does it provide a secured keyboard for input of passwords on banking websites and does it prevent unauthorised use of your webcam? I use these features on Kaspersky.

    •  

      These are all new avenues for more security breaches if you understand. The browser registers inputs the same way no matter if you use physical or software keyboard. Also the only way to secure a webcam is to simply unplug it, you don't have to pay anyone to do this, and you also don't have to risk all your data in the process.

        Agreed, if your PC is compromised to the point where you're concerned about form input security, then you have bigger issues to worry about.

        •  

          Why else would you be using a keyboard to input passwords lol

        •  

          My PC isn't compromised.

          Whenever I carry out a banking or a credit card transaction, kaspersky shows me a secure keyboard icon on the input box; I then have the option of using an onscreen keyboard or my hardware keyboard to enter the sensitive data. I wonder if that input is encrypted by kaspersky or that it's taken measures against keyloggers?

          As for the webcam, Kaspersky warns me occasionally that it has denied access to it from a Microsoft process. Yes, I can always disable or tape over it but it's a bother when I need to use it.

          Update: Looks like Kaspersky does not encrypt the data
