    Indeed it's a nice program for removing malwares from highly infected systems. I've been using Kaspersky AV/IS for years now (+ Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Free + SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition) and never had a problem with viruses or any kind of other malware.
    But for removing viruses/rootkits/worms/backdoors and all sorts of malware on highly infected sistems I recommend using next programs in this order:
    1). Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 (it's bootable OS on CD with AV)
    2). Combofix (fantastic anti-malware program, use it in Windows Save Mode with Networking)
    ...and then clean rest of the malware garbage from HDD's/SSD's and from Windows Registry with:
    3). Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Free (full scan) ...and
    4). SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition (complete scan)

    After that there is almost no chance for any type of malware to survive no matter how tough they are.

    I've used TDSSKILLER for over a year now, I only use the Detect TDLFS option.

    As for KB2823324, it's been installed on my system since 9th April and not had any problems, think it was 32bit Win7 that was having most issues!!

    I've used this to clear out a Worm before. Pretty strong when it's your only option left

    ^This is nice. The Emsisoft in it does a great job at finding newer viruses. There's even a bootable USB option. And I really like that it uploads suspicious new files to its database.


    Malwarebytes Chameleon

    For the REALLY tough ones.

    VirusTotal

    Yeah, everyone knows this one. But did you know sharing malicious files by uploading them to VirusTotal helps the AVs that partner with them?

    https://www.virustotal.com/en/about/

    So you could possibly be saving someone who uses one of the 45-some AVs that didn't pick up your file a ton of time or even money. I've shared stuff on there from time to time for the hell of it.

    It is a good program that I use all the time. However, it would almost never find the rootkit that created a small 8MB partition or it would find it, remove it but not change the active partition back.

    Be cautious installing latest Malwarebytes, 1.75.0.1300, on Windows XP. I installed it on an XP SP3 machine and when run it shot up to 100% CPU usage and just ate RAM, 600mb plus, and made the machine unresponsive. Eventually, 10 minutes or so, a box popped up saying the Malwarebytes database was missing or corrupt and do I want to download it again, but it wouldn't download. An uninstall/re-install did not solve the problem.

    This was on a Dual Core CPU with 1.25GB RAM and is the first time it's given me a problem. There's a thread on Malwarebytes forum about High CPU usage and XP, but that seems to be the PRO version, this is the FREE version and seems to suffer a similar problem on XP.

    Tried the same on my XP SP3 in VMWare, updating from 1.70.0.1100 but it didn't suffer the same problem, so just be wary if installing on a real XP Machine.

    Have used TDSSkiller before. I used a version called iexplorer.exe as the virus was killing the task.

    Some nasty new malware stuff out there. Those FBI warning pages that hold your machine hostage are becoming more an more common. The newest version does not allow you to run the pc in safe mode, hehehe. You have to use the Kaspersky startup tool.

    Browser hijacking/redirects are very common as well.

    I don't know how much faith I have left in there products. I personally have never had an issue since v6.0 back in the day and today I'm using KAV 2013. But you only have to look at some of the threads to see what's occuring in the background. For example...

    KIS2013 crashing with IE10 - Recommended solution...uninstall IE10 (Personal comment - this isn't a solution but a work around, fix it.

    Poor boot-up and shut down times - Recommended solution...wait for patch G to be released in 7 days time (Personal comment - little too late as this has been occuring since day 1 of release and now your working on KIS/KAV2014)

    As I say I don't suffer from any issue at present but you only have to read there forums to quickly see somethings not right. Kaspersky are quickly turning in to Bitdefender, the one and only time I used Bitdefender was 2010 which crashed endlessly and it took them a whole year to fix it.

    Rant over, I do like Kaspersky and I've never had an issue but I'm bound to hit one at this rate.

    If you tick all of the options, restart the computer, does the program stay resident in memory? I don't want something else loading in with my computer even when I'm not using/needing it, taking up memory.

    Kaspersky is great from a detection standpoint but they, like practically every other security software, starts sucking from a software standpoint. Whatever has the least bloat while maintaining decent detection ratios is what I like. I use ESET's stuff, but even then I've had issues. One was a windows update incompatibility that they didn't exactly go out of their way to alert their costumers about - I actually learned about it here on the Guru3d forums:
    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=332921

    And they do a sloppy job alerting people of software updates (separate from virus definition updates which are automatic). That might be changing though, for the first time ever the "check for software updates" actually worked a month ago without me having to go through their forums. Thunderbird's ESET email scanner they bundle in has been outdated for years. Their response? "Well, all email is scanned from the auto scanning anyway". Ok.

    But Gamemode (that shuts off the alerts and scans while something is in fullscreen) it's detection ratio, low false positive reports and being pretty bloat free (at least I think) is what I look for.

    Oh god, yes. So many people believe the old thinking of "just don't download shady stuff or visit dodgy sites and you'll be fine" still works. They like targeting legit sites these days. If they can't get the site then they go for their ad services. Hell, NBC.com was attacked:

    How exactly do the browser hijackers work? Does it load through a JAVA applet?

    Last time I had to download some tool called "hijack this" which you would run after running your browser...it stops the malware processes so that you can run a malware scan. None of the scanners I tried could find it when it was running and malwarebytes did not find it even after it was run. I believe I got it with Windows security essentials believe it or not.

    I used ESET at my old firm 6 years ago and it was pretty decent I thought at the time.

    Well...IE10 is a windows update so this goes perfectly with what I just said. It can't be a recommended solution to uninstall the latest version of a browser, it's not like Firefox which is updated monthly so no excuses there from Kaspersky.

    Also didn't they kill internet access for quite a lot of Windows XP users? Poor souls.

    There are lighter products out there which I'm keen to make use of for my Dad's PC but on my SSD it's not so noticeable.

    I quite like the Game Mode Kaspersky offers.

    I visited a website recently which was top of the search engine list, clicked on it and I got two Java applets prompting to install. The threat is very real.
