Kaspersky Pure is a super-solid internet security package. Introduced in 2009, it has rapidly become the de-facto standard that all other packages are judged by. Detection rates are second to none and there is a built in antivirus, antispyware, parental control, firewall, anti-spam, safe run option and many more features.
My little-known method is to purchase an older Kaspersky software version that is fully licensed (from the offers below) but then download and install the latest Kaspersky Pure Trial from here. It will be a trial version but turns into the full version on activation. To activate, you can simply use the purchased licence key (from an older version) to activate the latest version when you are prompted. There is absolutely no need to install the older version at all (if you did it would just upgrade to the latest anyway). See here for some live deals on older versions and discounts on new ones too.
I highly recommend this security package over all others, with excellent detection rates and easy installation. PC performance is good post-install, and it runs happily on XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
When the licence expires, take a look at this article to see a clever way you can renew for less money:
Kaspersky registration upgrade method
Because Kaspersky offers a free upgrade to this version from all previous ones from 2009 onwards, this is a completely legitimate method. Importantly, you will save LOTS of money without needing any underhanded pirate serial codes that only last for a few weeks. With Kaspersky prices being anything up to 85% cheaper in the deals below, it makes serious sense and you get the best security suite currently available.
Note: Please make sure that you purchase the correct licence for the number of computers you are installing Kaspersky on, ie the 3-user licence is for up to 3 separate PCs where the 1-user licence will only allow use on 1 PC. Also check that the product you download and install is the same as the product you have purchased the older version of, eg “Kaspersky Pure” not “Kaspersky Internet Security” or “Kaspersky Antivirus”
Personally, I’d go for the Kaspersky Pure package rather than just the antivirus as there will be a very small difference in cost but there’s a huge amount of extra functionality.
