Fast enough installation, obviously the download depends on the connection you have.
But the package is not very heavy are almost 150 MB.

Interface Feedback
Well-kept and clean interface, not very easy to find advanced settings such as the cloud participation program, but overall there should be no problems.
The animations are a little annoying for me but they can be deactivated.

Performance and System Impact Feedback
Quite light in Idle the Ram consumption is always less than 100MB, certainly because it is the basic version, not yet at WD levels but it has improved a lot, fast scans with ssd.

How not to be the best Kaspersky when you have 32 gb ddr?
@Devilboss94 Do you still have free memory slots? :giggle:
True, there are many 32 GB of ram, but I can assure you that it is quite light, now it is also installed on the laptop with 16 GB of the same consumption, and I think it can run safely even with 4 GB of ram even with some optimization of the settings.
I must admit that it has improved a lot compared to 2-3 years ago in terms of performance.

ps: I have all 4 banks full, 8X4 Corsair vengeance 2666ghz

I have Kaspersky Internet Security installed. on a quad-core CPU, (an outdated PC) with 4gb ddr 2, and I can say that it has no problems, if it has improved a lot in terms of resources.:)

Im going to have to say at this moment Kaspersky 2020 is the lightest and most problem free i have tried a few since being home
for two weeks and most of them run sluggish or have problems i have Kaspersky on a killer computer (my toy) and i also have Kaspersky installed on a 10 year old acer which still runs great and it runs better then any security program now a new windows
10 update is coming soon lets all hope everything or anything will run fine after update

It did slow down my Pentium 4 core and 4GB RAM, usable, but slower than before at browsing and booting up. My experience.

I think this config is the line to a minimum good experience.
I have a computer with similar specs almost every av made the system slow but it's nowadays running as a SEP managed client with application control, firewall/ anti exploit only .
Since sonar and auto protect while giving better performance then many avs still made the system somewhat slow .

It's a very good product 👌
Too expansive for home users though as it's built for the business .

Just leaving this here .
Eugene loves a revenge.

This is old news, they explained it on their blog too and said they really did this. By doing that they confirm Avast/AVG were stealing Kaspersky detections on VT.

Read Eugene personal blog, he is really pissed off with stealing technology and when Kaspersky comes with new things he seems like a kid playing with toys.

In an effort to prove that other companies were ripping off its work, Kaspersky said it ran an experiment: It created 10 harmless files and told VirusTotal that it regarded them as malicious. VirusTotal aggregates information on suspicious files and shares them with security companies.

Within a week and a half, all 10 files were declared dangerous by as many as 14 security companies that had blindly followed Kaspersky's lead, according to a media presentation given by senior Kaspersky analyst Magnus Kalkuhl in Moscow in January 2010.

Yeah I mean it’s arguably petty compared to just making your VirusTotal engine suck (which is what Avira and others seem to do), but it doesn’t affect my decision when choosing an AV. This isn’t them compromising the protection of a customer, it is an evil prank on other AV vendors who did seem to just be copying Kaspersky detections.
