Kaspersky AntiVirus is a solution for users who want to keep their computer safe from any threats that might appear when browsing the internet or even when inserting a disc or a flash drive. The active scanning system of the utility is able to scan websites before they load and it is also capable of scanning removable media devices in order to find any potential threats. There are also multiple scanning features so that users can choose between quick and full system scans in order to target different areas of the computer.
The antivirus is able to scan the system in the background, using a minimum amount of resources. It automatically detects when the PC is idle and it performs faster scans during this time. Updates are constantly provided to the virus database and they are downloaded in the background, too, users having the choice to receive notifications about these events. However, such notifications will never be displayed when a full screen app is running.
