Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 FREE after rebate!
Fatwallet.com ^ | November 23, 2012 | Me, Myself, and I

Posted on 11/23/2012 8:03:58 AM PST by EinNYC

Just got my new 2013 version of Kaspersky Internet Security from Frys.com. It's the best anti-virus, anti-malware software I've ever used. And if you print out the rebate coupon and then send it in with the URL cut out of the box, you get it for FREE! That's my best Black Friday buy.


TOPICS: Computers/Internet
KEYWORDS: antivirus
How can you beat FREE, especially on such a great product?

Well, I hear that McAfee is now available with a year's supply of hallucinogens...

FYI Kaspersky is pretty closely affiliated with Russian Defense, Intelligence, and Security services.

Lol! Packed in a pretty bath salt box I bet!

I wouldn’t be surprised if Norton gave their crap away free, with a lifetime guarantee that you would NEVER ever be able to remove it from your PC.

I have gotten burned by so many rebates that don’t pay up (especially the deceased Comp*USA, but even products like Snapple) that I will not consider a promised rebate in my purchase of products.

I concur compUSA was famous for their bogus rebate offers. I also had one refused.

Don’t. Eugene is pushing for internet users to have to have a government internet license. Don’t gimme the “great product” cr*p.

There’s TWO products out there acceptable for conservatives:

Avast and Malwarebytes.

The others are jihadis, farlefties or even computer criminals.

They all claim to be the best. Fact of the matter is, not one are 100% effective. None are better than the other in my opinion.

I recommend AVG. It’s free and doesn’t annoy you every 5 minutes with a “warning” or some other crap pop-up reminding you to do this or that.

I never trusted McAfee after they were successfully sued in the late 90s for stealing the code for Norton Antivirus and using it as their own (a disgruntled employee left Symantec and stole as much as he could on the way out).

McAfee counter-sued with a $1 billion defamation suit, which was quickly thrown out of court and shows what a nutjob he was back then, too.

I’ve used Kaspersky a couple years now and have been real happy with it. It works and doesn’t slow me down like Norton, which doesn’t work.

I've used Kasperski (KIS) for as long as I can remember owning virus protection and have always been pleased.

That said, I also use Malwarebytes to keep stuff out that slips by Kasperski.

I’ve been using Microsoft’s Security Essentials http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/security-essentials-download for years without a problem. And it’s free.

I finally got tired of all the comparison shopping and opted to use Windows Defender AV/Firewall. Haven’t had any problems in over a year, but I also practice “safe inter....netting”.

I’ve been using Kaspersky for years and it seems to catch stuff that Norton and Macafee used to let march right through. And, with this rebate, it’s ALSO free!

Me too, it’s undoubtedly the best MS product I’ve ever used. (maybe that’s a underhanded compliment)

Hard to beat FREE if it works...Thanks for the tip, and I’ll look into it...

I’ve been using IObit’s Advanced Systemcare 6.0 for some time now and have been very pleased...

Started with the free version, which I liked so much upgraded to PRO...Inexpensive for all you get and how well it works...

I just manually run it every couple of days, takes a couple of minutes and cleans out everything...Never have noticed it interferes with anything or slows down my computer...

On the contrary, my PC is healthier now than ever before...

Check out the free download version at CNET.com...I don’t think you’ll be disappointed...

After using few products, including Avast, I settled for SpayZooka. It is not free (about $30/per year/per computer,) but so far it has performed as intended.

Why do you suppose it’s free? Maybe no one is buying it since Microsoft’s Security Essentials/Windows defender has always been free. (And is better.)

I’ve been using it as well and I hope MS knows more about their systems than other vendors even though I think they bought this from another company or they bought the company.
Works great and free.

“FYI Kaspersky is pretty closely affiliated with Russian Defense, Intelligence, and Security services.” Surely, we can trust the Russians now that the Evil Empire has expired? Can’t we?

Prior to it’s last update some of the JAVA based fake security warnings would get through MSE. They seemed to have addressed the problem.

I got a free copy of Norton 360 to try out and not only did it make my system agonizingly slow, it also wiped out critical files for Windows XP such that my backup files were inaccessible. I had to completely reinstall the operating system from the original installation disk and reinstall all of my drivers. Then restore from my data backups. It took 6 hours to put everything back. Good thing I tried it first on a non-critical system.

Macfee is bloatware. When I tried it a number of years ago it copied hidden files to every single folder on my system. It was also incompatible with programming software because it kept tagging my new exes as viruses. Removing it was a pain because it left behind so many garbage files.

I’ve had the best luck with Trend Micro. It probably is not as good as it used to be several years ago, but at least it doesn’t slow down the system or destroy my files.

I’ve never tried Kapersky, but I’ve never heard anything particularly bad about it. I may try it.

From an interview last year:

SPIEGEL: You were once trained as a cryptologist by the KGB. Does that at all hinder your expansion in the West?

Kaspersky: No, but the fact that we are a company with Russian roots does. We occasionally sense a certain amount of suspicion. Nevertheless, we are now No. 1 in Germany, are growing rapidly in the United States and even have customers within NATO.

SPIEGEL: Who?

Kaspersky: A defense ministry. I won’t reveal the name of the country.

Agreed. I use it personally and for my biz. It has worked flawlessly, and believe me, I have tested it!
