I have Kaspersky on work PCs, it's too intrusive (stops legit stuff from working)

 

Thats what I like to hear :P

 

I like agressive over the top antiviruses, I can tell it when to shut up and put an exclude on.

 

I'd prefer 100 false positives than a single missed real.

 

 

Well that's the AV for you then!

 

The web filtering is also very OTT annoying.

Is there a 'gaming mode' so it can be aggressive and silent about it?


Wherever you go in life, watch out for Scythe, the tackling IT support guy.

I don't know, we use the centrally managed server version so I never see the management console.

 

The consumer version seems to have it

Ok that's probably why it seems over aggressive to you. Your sysadmin has configured Kaspersky with the master management console to be fairly anal about things.

 

 


Of course you are my bright little star,

Actually the default install setup of Kaspersky is very anal, we've toned everthing down but it's still **** anal about things.

On two laptops, it disabled the entire USB system! That's because it interferes with the Windows USB drivers.

May be a difference between home and business products then.

True but just a warning in case your USB just stops working
