Thank you very much eXPerience you are really very experienced :BNC

KAV 2009 isn’t in the site anymore.

Link updated from Kaspersky, it gives you as well as the activation code as the installation.

Well Vettetech, I’ve seen that they got 2009 back from the market but still don’t understand why. Anyway this should fix it ;D. If anyone comes up with something else, PM me and I will add :slight_smile:

Xan

There still is no KAV 2009.

Happy ? 88)

They have released it, I’m sure of that. (ask ailef ;D) But now it’s nowhere to be found, not even in the beta anymore ??? Donno why, I found it actually quite stable.

Xan

who is the spammer now huh!? (:AGY)

Can I ask you who/what is spamming ?

Xan

Well in some kind of manner you can consider this as a kind of commercial advertising which could influencing some people in to buying some software they were not intended to buy in the first place… this topic does not give much information on the products itself, it just linking and advertise software products BUT there is a difference you are showing some FREE stuff for people to download, so that is a difference when the companies would do it by them selfs…

anyways, good if you want free protection! (:TNG)

??? So you want a list of 10 pages, telling what it does ??? Isn’t that commercial advertising 88).

All I do now is giving some stuff away what you otherwise should buy.

Xan

yep! it is good! I am glad you did! (but isn’t this in some kind illegal ???) I am not sure of this… anyways I am glad you give some free stuff to us!

  1. I will never post something illegal in the forum itself, I always do that by PM ;D.

All these links are 100% legal, they offer it so they get more known. I offer it so you wouldn’t need to buy it :slight_smile:

Xan

KAV 2009 working fine here. More polished then Avast every will be. :BNC

Glad I could help ;D

Xan

Hey eXPerience, I appreciate those helpful links for products, I just want to point something out about the nod32 link you gave us all. According to a thread in Wilders forums about 2 years ago, Marcos said that such licenses will be canceled for people outside of Hong Kong China area. Not sure if that is indeed the case or not, but I believe Marcos is one of those higher ups there. Just want to point that out.

See here: Is it a legitimate way to obtain a free 90 day licence? | Wilders Security Forums

As nod32 club does look to be an official reseller of nod32 for China/Hong Kong residents I don’t believe forum rules were violated, so all is well

For US residents (and possibly those in Europe as well?) you can get a 30 day free trial straight from their page here:

http://www.eset.com/download/ It’s not as good as 90 days, but it is something, and it should be good enough to decide if you like the product.

Thanks again for the helpful links, I expect I may give F-Secure a try if it is a free trial.

Dave

Dumped KAV. Firefox kept crashing. Still had a valid license for NOD32 so I am now running that. KAV 09 also failed the System Shutdown Simulator. It let the eicar test run. Avast and NOD32 stop it.

Just go with avira for now, that’s my advice, so much faster and lighter on the resources. Eagerly awaiting CAVS 3.

You seem to be switching alot mate…

Btw… some nice links to the author off the post.

Yeah I know I have been switching lately. I was along time user of NOD32 till Avira 8 came out. Was uisng Avira 8 but about every 4h or 5th boot up the “umbrella” never opened. There are other posts about this over at Avira fourms. Clean install same thing. So I thought I go back to Avast but I cannot get use that dumb GUI no matter what skin. Also there are 5 processes that run with Avast. So then after talking to eXPerience I thought I would try KAV 09. I tried KAV 7 years awhile back and it slowed my pc and browsing down. Well so doesnt KAV 09 and also Firefox was crashing. Avira also slowed browsing down when I opened up several tabs. So then I went back to NOD32 and my pc is lightening fast. Even with the web shield on pages load very fast.
