    Kaspersky Anti Virus 8th Jan 19 at 6:10 PM
    My Kaspersky Anti Virus comes up for renewal soon.


    Last year I was given a special low renewal of 4.49p as a previous user through Barclays.


    Does anyone know if this will apply this year and how do I get it?


    Is there any other alternative to Kaspersky Anti Virus?

    I'm using ESET and it works great especially for malware protection.

    Im looking at free AV programs at the minute and was keen on Kaspersky until I read this:

    'Kaspersky has already been banned by the US government, and there is mounting evidence that they have been data mining consumer information and sending it to The Kremlin, thereby making it spyware.'

    Link here ==> www.safetydetective.com/blog/best-really-free-antivirus-for-windows/

    Not sure how accurate this is but I would do some further research just in case. Just did a quick search and there is a BBC new article talking about this.

    If you are using W10 just use the free MS defender AV that comes with it.
    Or look at Bitdefender free.
