Tech savy Unhappy customer

To start I want to say they I am very computer savy so and used to work in quality assurance.

Downloaded it, bought the pro version and it freezes my computer every time I run a full scan. I have to restart it. The last full scan I started the program decided to start two scans. If it is noticably buggy from the user’s perspective it is probably not scaning very well.


works just like the trojans and viruses it is suppose to eliminate


Downloaded it and ran it. The findings of the scans said I had 5 adware….however, it also said, I could not remove them…they would remain on my computer and if I wanted them off, I had to buy the Kaspersky Premium….that sounds just like the corrupted programs that pop up once in awhile saying I have problems and can eliminate them IF I buy their program….I find that technique to be unethical and so I deleted the program immediately. If Kaspersky wants my business, a courtesy scan is not good enough…you have to do the courtesy quarentine and removal as well…at least for the one time or the first week or month or something….but, don’t tell my I have adware and then embezzle me for the funds to remove it…Kaspersky totally lost my respect...

Just what I was looking for


I wanted a non-invasive virus scanner I could run on demand, one that doesn’t attempt to take over all your network and disk I/O. This is it. You’ll soon want to upgrade for $10 to Pro, as the free version identifies, but does not remove, threats it finds. Reading other reviews, some complain about that, but $10 seems cheap, and for nothing you can find out if you even need to spend the money. So I gave it five stars; very pleased. Edit: It runs successfully on my 2015 MBP running Sierra.
