The Good
The tool is compatible with all popular Windows editions from XP to 8/8.1 (32- and 64-bit architecture type). It is very easy to initialize a scan job, regardless of the user's experience with virus removal tools.

Nevertheless, it is possible to adjust settings regarding the scan scope, severity, action on threat detection, and self-defense.

Virus detection ratio was excellent in our tests.

All program activity can be studied in log files.

Multiple languages are supported.

It is free to use.

The Bad
As previously mentioned in the section with performance results, we encountered multiple issues when attempting to conduct scan jobs on Windows 8.1 Pro. The app frequently popped up errors and crashed.

The estimated remaining time for scan jobs was not accurate.

RAM consumption was significant during scan tasks.

The scan job was very slow in our tests.

The Truth
Unless you're faced with a heavily malware-infected computer, Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool is a great tool to occasionally run scans, thanks to its terrific virus detection ratio results. Otherwise, you should probably look for something speedier.

Hi Petrovic

Thanks for the info. I'm using KIS 2015 and also find whilst scanning my PC that the RAM usage is very high, however I think Kaspersky is one of the best and fully trust their product. I've used the Kaspersky Virus Removal tool many years ago and it saved my laptop.

Tony :)
