Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal
Virus activity and the probability that some day one small virus may destroy files that are the result of many years of your hard work are tragically increasing every day. Therefore, today it is not enough just to have an anti-virus program. Your computer needs the best anti-virus protection from all types of known and unknown viruses. In this case Kaspersky Lab anti-virus products — the winners of numerous comparative tests conducted by authoritative computer magazines and research centers worldwide — is just what you are looking for. Kaspersky Labs’ state-of-the-art technology provides relief against the constant headache of virus related attacks. We take care of your personal home-computer anti-virus protection, so that you can just concentrate fully on the job in hand. The programs operate under DOS, Windows 95/98/ME and Windows 2000/NT Workstation.

NEW FEATURES!

Intuitive user interface.
Accelerated performance of your computer applications resulting from the optimized architecture of Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Scanner and Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Monitor. These programs are now each divided into two sub-programs: functional and interface. This division allows the programs to continue operating even with the interface sub-program unloaded.
Improved setup utility allowing you to keep user settings of Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Control Center and/or Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Updater running on your computer.
Improved Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Scanner command line.
Features insuring retention of recoverable data with the programs preset to delete infected objects.
Quarantine. An easy-to-use tool allows isolation of infected files that can be later restored. In combination with the removal of infected objects the program failed to disinfect this tool provides the full-scale protection against viruses while ensuring the retention of recoverable data.
Reliable control over all sources of virus propagation
Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Personal consistently controls all possible "doors" that can be used by viruses attempting to “worm” into your computer via e-mail, the Internet, diskettes, CDs etc. The program does not allow virus presence in any location on the computer, including system memory, boot sectors, files, and mail databases. The combined use of these tools allows you to prevent a successful virus attack on your computer.
Efficient real-time anti-virus protection
The unique in-background virus-interceptor, Monitor for Windows 9x/NT/2000, permanently resides in your computer’s memory, checking for viruses in files while they are started, created or copied. Unlike other interceptors, Monitor integrates itself into the deepest level of your operating system. It allows the program to comprehensively control all the file operations and prevent attacks of even the most technologically advanced viruses. Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Monitor performs the check for viruses in the memory of running programs right after it is loaded, and also every time you update your anti-virus databases. If the infected memory of a program cannot be disinfected, this program is forced to abort the performance. When running under Windows NT/2000 the Kaspersky™ Anti-Virus Monitor program operates as a system service. The improved interception of system calls to the infected files increased stability of the operating system.
Permanent e-mail anti-virus filtration
Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Personal automatically checks for viruses in all incoming and outgoing messages in real time, and will prevent viruses from penetrating your computer. Supporting many e-mail database formats (MS Outlook, MS Outlook Express, MS Exchange, Eudora, MS Mail, Pegasus Mail, Netscape Mail, JSMail, MIME), the program is effective against viruses in e-mail-message storage areas. In addition to this, the built in Mail Checker efficiently removes viruses from e-mail messages in MS Outlook, MS Exchange Client, and completely restores the original contents of your messages.
Comprehensive control over e-mail messages
Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Personal does not allow a virus to hide in any of the message components. The program automatically checks for viruses in all areas of incoming and outgoing messages, i.e. attached files (including archived and compressed files), other messages of any nesting level, embedded OLE objects and the message body.
Protecting data storage locations
Disinfecting the MS Outlook Express mail databases and the objects started at the operating system start. The anti-virus Scanner provides a comprehensive check of all local and network drive contents on-demand. You may start your scanner manually or schedule its start with Control Centerâ„¢. Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Scanner now allows not only detection but also removal of computer viruses from the MS Outlook Express mail databases. If you preset the program to delete infected objects and it detected a virus in an OS-started object, the program deletes the object and the object-starting code.
Unique system intercepting script viruses
Conventional anti-virus monitors are unable to protect your system from the destructive activity of script-viruses operating in your computer’s RAM. Script Checker is the universal script-virus interceptor that completely solves this problem by integrating itself as a filter in-between the script-virus and its processor. This enables you to check for viruses in any script before it is executed.
Protection from even unknown viruses
Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Personal is powered by a unique integrated technology for unknown virus searching, based on the principals of second-generation heuristic analysis. Because of this, the program is able to protect you from even unknown viruses. The highest effectiveness of Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus is proved by the fact that it was the only anti-virus in the world that repelled attacks of all "ILOVEYOU" virus variations without any additional anti-virus database updates.
Supporting archived and compressed files
Viruses often lurk inside files that have been compressed using special archiving utilities, rendering them invisible to many anti-virus programs. However, this is not true with Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Personal! Our program supports the majority of archived and compressed file formats, and automatically checks for viruses in their contents. Even if the virus has been compressed or archived multiple times using various archiving utilities, Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus detects it, deletes the virus and restores the file to its working state.
Completely automated computer anti-virus protection
Does it annoy you to download anti-virus databases every day? Sometimes you simply forget to start your anti-virus monitor and scan your disks for viruses. In our busy lives, it is often hard to remember everything. Use the Control Center integrated in Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Personal! It enables you to create a flexible schedule for the program components to be started and to automatically download and apply updates to your anti-virus databases via the Internet. The Control Center also enables e-mail notifications regarding detected virus attacks and controls the rights of other users by allowing/prohibiting them from changing your anti-virus settings.
Daily anti-virus database and the package components updates via the Internet
New viruses appear every day. The more frequently you update your anti-virus, the more reliable protection you have. We provide you with free* daily updates to your Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Personal anti-virus databases! Using the built-in Updater module, you can easily download the updates automatically or just by one button-click from the Kaspersky Lab Web site. The size of our daily updates is just between 3 and 20Kb! Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Updater allows you to update not only anti-virus databases but software package components also.
Universal boot system
The product includes the Rescue Kit function, a unique boot system that is designed to restore your computer to the working state after it has been attacked by a virus. Rescue Kit creates a set of start-up diskettes that are based on the Linux kernel, and has a preinstalled copy of Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus for Linux. It allows for a "clean boot," and helps you to restore disks on any of the most popular file systems: FAT (DOS), FAT32 (Windows 95/98), NTFS (Windows NT/2000), HPFS (OS/2), EXT (Linux). Now the check and recovery of your computer file system is started automatically right after you inserted the first rescue disk from the fallback-recovery set.
User-friendly
Kasperskyâ„¢ Anti-Virus Personal has a friendly and easy-to-use user interface featuring the unique Tree Chartâ„¢ technology. It utilizes a step-by-step method, offering recommendations for the next step. Main functions of the program (scanning, updating, and downloading of separate modules) can be activated by the touch of one key, or completely automated.
Round-the-clock technical support
At any time of the day or night, the best Kaspersky Lab anti-virus experts are ready to answer your questions and provide you with FREE* technical support by phone or e-mail.
