I have noticed, the recommendation in my Kaspersky Total security to use Hardware Virtualization. Is it really a good idea, is there any test showing its usefulness? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

Kaspersky Lab applications installed on 64-bit versions of Windows 8, 8.1 or 10, have an additional feature of protection through hardware virtualization. This feature provides additional protection against complex malware that steals data through clipboard or phishing. The status of hardware virtualization is available in the Safe Money settings window.

Yes, is highly recommended... try to run a simple test by Your own, disable it and try to take a screen-shot of Your browser during Safe Money (green frame) with Print Screen key in Your keyboard, then paste to Paint, for example, then enable it and repeat the test...
