    Oh…So, it back to the top position. It used to be the first position or highest rating before, right?

      It kind of fluctuate from time to time when it comes to positioning. Most importantly, is to check out the overall rating and I can see the top 3 antivirus did very well there. I don’t think the position matters a lot. What do you think?

  2. Gab says:

    I think looking at the overall rating is a better option to look at here. Since we are not likely to change antivirus software from time to time.

    • Alan Tay says:

      It is true. Just like me, I had been with Kaspersky for quite sometime. When I feel it is costly, I will at least get the basic Antivirus.

  3. Nicolas Cailot says:

    Kaspersky Internet Security System is something that I had started using two years back. I feel that it is really effective and I have even suggested my friends, who are using other security systems, to use Kaspersky. If I am getting quality then there should be no problems in paying the cost.

    • Alan Tay says:

      Nice to know that someone is thinking the same as me, Nicolas. I don’t really convince my friend if they are fine with other antivirus. I will only suggest them to go KAV/KIS if they have problem with their current antivirus. Let’s hope Kaspersky will continue to do their best for us ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Dominic from ComputerTooSlow.com says:
