Problems with company

Pros: *product has numerous protections plus phones
Cons: customer service is the worst i have ever had
Model Number: Kaspersky One Universal for 5 devices
" I purchased Kaspersky One Universal Security as I could use it on 5 different items. The first problem is it would not load on Windows 8. I called customer service and they emailed the Windows 8 version and instruction on how to load it. Installation is not as seamless as advertised. I had similar problems loading it onto our 2 Samsung S3 Androids. Customer service refused to walk me through my problems and would only send email instructions, which were the wrong ones. In fact the representatives were rude, argumentative and kept citing company policy. In the amount of time they argued with me, we could have resolved the problem.
I was finally able to get all devices loaded and working, but it required a lot of trial and error on my part. The customer service reps were rude, refused to answer even simple questions and seemed to be in a hurry to end the call as if they were on a time limit.

Better Anti-virus product overall

Pros: effeciency sleek design stand-by background chec, i have been sotware design for 20 years now. i u
Cons: hight memory and cpu usage when it is running.
" I have been software design for 20 years plus. Kaspersky is top two anti-virus product in the market. Most of all I like the additional features that other charge as add-ons. one of my favorite features are the password manager, data encryption, parental control, and the secure banking.
I opted to buy this product from Costco, because Costco is the one that introduced me this product after purchasing ThinkPad Edge that came with free downloadable Kaspersky. I was big fan of another well-known anti-virus software that should rename nameless. Kaspersky also doesn't bother you with constant update of what other product you should buy from them. "

Very good - BUT

Pros: great protection super password program
Cons: abhorrent customer service
Model Number: Kaspersky PURE 3.0
" The protection is very good, and I love the password software.
HOWEVER - if you EVER have a problem with this software this company's customer service is the WORST I have ever encountered! Their online "chat" is obviously automated and will just send you to a supposed "answer" on their website. But you can spend hours on the website and STILL NOT HAVE THE PROBLEM RESOLVED!! So, buyer beware

" Pure 3.0 has many flaws. Password manager does not work, safe money does not work. Technical support are rude. The self help is difficult to go through. Kaspersky will send an e-mail with instructions for a fix which are difficult to follow. "

Not ready for prime time

Pros: none
Cons: password manager will not function at all, k'sky customer support is worse than non-existent
Model Number: Pure 3.0
" Prior to this purchase, I had Kaspersky Internet Security 2013, which I also purchased through CostCo. It worked flawlessly. I upgraded this year to Pure 3.0 to take advantage of it's distinguishing feature: Password Manager. It does not work in the slightest (I have a Windows 7 Dell PC that I bought from CostCo; my browser is Internet Explorer 10.0). "

Pros: u will be on your computer less due to frustration
Cons: everything else!
" I have used Kaspersky since 2010 and hate hate hate the latest version. My computer is slow, hot and it keeps changing my settings. I can't login to any of my accounts with the "secure keyboard input" setting which I continue to have to turn off manually because the settings don't stick. Do NOT waste your money! I am pretty pc literate so pebcak is not an issue... in this case. :) "
