Last Customer Reviews: Windows Defender vs Kaspersky

Jake
I just completed my upgrade of the Windows Defender anti-virus. I must say, it is cool, but I can hardly tell the difference between the versions.. Good firewall service but not so user-friendly interface.
joseph
Windows Defender will immediately scan any external device that is placed on your computer, it is a nice idea, but then I think the developer should upgrade the software to identify devices that it has previously scanned, so it doesn’t keep scanning a device more than once daily. My own thoughts tho…the firewall service is also commendable.
jenna
I am so happy to have this software. Free and I have no viruses! However, my laptop overheats from time to time...
Herbert Moran
Everything is fine with Kaspersky. The only thing is that it often blocks games that I play. I torrented a couple of games and they are flagged as dangerous. I’m certain that they are clean, but the antivirus till flags them.
John Hambrick
The program is surely one of the best on the Internet. I want to note that their firewall is very easy to use and effective.
James
Where can I get this program? Can I test it? Does Kaspersky free antivirus exist?
