Kaspersky Anti-Virus is powered by a unique integrated technology for unknown virus searching, based on the principals of second-generation heuristic analysis.
Because of this, the program is able to protect you from even unknown viruses. By using the integrated Control Center in Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal, it enables you to create a flexible schedule for the program components to be started and to automatically download and apply updates to your anti-virus databases via the Internet.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus inherits all the strengths of the previous version and adds increased speed and efficiency based on new technologies as well as a more convenient user interface.
One of the important improvements is a powerful heuristic analyzer which when combined with Proactive Defense previously developed by the company's experts is capable of detecting and disabling unknown malicious programs based on their behavior. Thus, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 provides unique triple protection from all types of malware, known or otherwise, alongside the traditional signature-based method. This kind of multi-tier defense is unparalleled anywhere in the world and of unequalled efficiency.
