Is it possible that you:
Installed the wrong version?
Installed a Trojan instead of the actual anti-virus?
Uninstalled important system files in the process of uninstalling PC tools?
Got a virus when transitioning to Kaspersky?
Did PC tools flip a bitch randomly and go crazy, and that's why you had to reinstall it?
Well here's the thing, I became a partner with Kaspersky and wanted to give it a shot. I uninstalled PCTools (which never gave me problems uninstalling/reinstalling before) and installed Kaspersky. The second I installed Kaspersky from the website's partner page, a little stamp of chaos popped up on my desktop. This version of windows it not genuine. Alright. I uninstall Kaspersky, do a restore, problem solved. I then reinstall PCTools and decide to just keep it. It was Kaspersky internet security 2012. What might have happened is a trojan somehwere quarantined on my computer re-activated, and Kaspersky was not able to handle it. I also did not like Kaspersky options, and noticed from other websites it would not pick up a couple specific trojans I had major problems in the past with (not on my computer of course).
Kaspersky is also very slow to update, which is not something I like. I could do, for example, a 4 MB database update for PCTools in a few seconds. It would take Kaspersky longer just to see if there are any updates, and it would download them at less than 50KB/second sometimes.
I also noticed Kaspersky's scan options had less options, was harder to use and was less user friendly, had a weaker less adjustable firewall, didn't have its own password protection (that I could find) for shutting down or going in to the protection settings, and while I usually don't find this a problem since I work on computers hourly, it had a ridiculously longer scan time.
@Mshread, I'm used to doing it the fast and easy way every time. Get out, go to next client. I have a quota to fill twice a week.
