    @ biscuit I have used KIS for over 2.5yrs on Vista without a problem with FF. The guys on the Kaspersky forums are pretty helpful, check them out. I know there was a problem with KIS slowing updates of add-ons but I haven't experienced it. If you know of a specific add-on, I can try to install and see if it works ok now.

    What about a linux product? Just started using Ubuntu, loving it but I only have an on-demand virus scanner. Would love to have KIS on my linux too.

    About the Mac version, if you run a multi-boot hackintosh I wonder if you need an extra licence?

    ps can't find this mac version of Kaspersky.co.uk

    i only tried the demo and then stopped using because it was easier to find an alternative than slog throuigh finding the problem... i have like 6 or 7 add ons running so it just wasnt worth the effort.

    I've done the same with other pieces of software.

    Just didn't want you to have wasted your money and have it left sitting on the shelf.

    lol, me too.
    Call me cheap, but around Christmas I go checking the pc mags for the free 3 or 6 month trials. If it's good I'll buy. I lucked out with KIS initially, had a six month free trial originally, then they went and brought out a new version just as my trial was expiring and I got a free month of the new version. Liked it enough by then to buy.
