Kaspersky Anti-Virus is an exceptionally accurate and reliable antivirus engine.

The package offers great protection, and you don't have to take our word for that. Independent testing labs almost always rate Kaspersky products at or near the top of their test results (check out AV Comparatives' latest monthly report to see for yourself).

Kaspersky Anti-Virus isn't just about detecting and removing malware. Its Safe Surf and URL Advisor features work hard to keep you away from dangerous websites, so reducing the chance that you'll be infected in the first place.

Most of the improvements in the 2016 edition are reserved for Kaspersky's suites - Internet Security and Total Security - but the program does have improved remote management and reporting via your My Kaspersky account.

Please note, this new edition of Kaspersky Anti-Virus is currently available in the US and Canada only.

There's not much new in this base edition, but so what? Kaspersky Anti-Virus blocks more malware than just about anything else, and that's what matters to us.
