Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 Interface:

The interface has been improved and redesigned slightly. The
information is divided into tabs and all settings are compiled in the
same menu. A futuristic design top bar turns red or yellow if there is
a problem or is there any task that requires user intervention
(updates, suspicious software, etc). Just click on the button "Repair

The interface is very simple. Divided into five tabs and with green color background users will not have any trouble in understanding it.

1) My Protection:

In the first tab named as My Protection, there is plenty of
information about the protection status of both systems and
applications and also about online activities and data.

2) My Security Zone

The second tab identifies the activities that are being monitored and
the level of confidence that the system has about them. Login to
configure the Digital Protection is difficult for less experienced
users, while the more advanced will have a lot of options on which to
work. It is in this section where we get one of the outstanding option,
which is Safe Mode or Virtual Mode that
allows you to run applications within a virtual environment protected
for increased security, and is ideal for trying a lot of applications
downloaded from the Internet for free.

3) Scan My Computer

It is simply having the option to perform rapid analysis or complete
and which sectors of the computer. Very interesting is the option that
allows the user scan vulnerabilities; Sure that more than one is
surprised at how outdated some of the applications are used, with the
security risks that entails.

4) My Update Center

The Updates section provides information on the number of types of
threats made while Security + is no more, nor less than a section that
offers the user a series of additional tools that enhance the
protection of equipment, such as parental control or a virtual keyboard

allows the creation of rescue disks or to erase traces of activity

5) Security+

This section offers user a series of additional tools that enhance the
protection, such as parental control or a virtual keyboard that
protects against the reading of private information, but also allows
the creation of rescue disks or to erase traces of activity private.
Virtual Keyboard tool specially prevents from interception of data
entered at the keyboard. It also can be used to enter a text or
personal data in any office application or in any web-site. New Gamer
makes Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 functioning as you plays
games and kills off the interrupting pop ups and also makes memory
usage to minimum.





Performance in terms of virus detection is quite good, it gives full
protection and you can trust on its security. For speed, it takes near
about 2 and half minute for Quick Scan and about 4 minutes for
Vulnerability Scan. Full scan takes more time i.e about 1 hour. It
doesn’t effects much in the boot and shutdown time speed.


  • More features than Kaspersky Internet Security 2009.
  • Smooth installation
  • Fast performance.
  • Intuitive user interface.
  • Cheap and you can upgrade from version 2009 to 2010 for free!


  • Slow update server.
  • Application blocking without digital signature.
  • Slow downs web browsing etc.
  • Eats more cpu usage in the Safe Run ‘sandbox’ mode.
  • Sometimes annoying pop ups.
  • Can be annoying when you need to approve every single application when you first run one. 


It is good as a complete security suite and gives lot of features which
makes it worth to buy. The Kaspersky Internet Security 3 User with one
year licence is just adequate for both the advanced users and novice
users, But for the novice users its some what difficult to configure
properly. Slow down the browsing some what and blocks certain
applications in the background. Overall good to buy, install and use.
