Kaspersky Anti-Virus is an antivirus software developed by Kaspersky Labs and published with Kaspersky. The software company is based in Russia and was formerly known as AntiViral Toolkit Pro and KAV (abbreviated form of Kaspersky Anti-Virus). The software is a complete solution for computers and comes in mobile versions. Microsoft Windows and Macintosh Operating System support this computer version; Kaspersky also comes in a business version that is also available for the Linux operating system. The software was initially released in 1997.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus protects you against several online and offline threats, among which are trojans, viruses, spyware, worms, adware, malicious tools, keyloggers, and auto-dials. The software detects and removes such programs if found on your computer and also protects you against them. The software can detect and remove rootkits on your device, which makes it a detailed cleaning software. An antivirus rescue disk is also available for Windows users, which scans their disk and the computer before booting in an isolated Linux environment. Other than that, the software also has a way to stop itself from being shut down by malware as it asks for a user password and permission for shutting off. It also asks for the passwords if someone is trying to make any security detail changes or any other internal settings, thus covering all areas of attacks.
