A massive 94.388kb update! That is larger than the installation file! What is going on ? If the program is new it shouldn't require such a massive database update, let alone tell me everything is fine, when the program was obviously out of date. Could this be a massive program update, to the engine, or something ? But if it is, why not put the updated file on the server ? But if it's a program update then it would probably ask me to reboot, which it didn't. All I have to say is it's strange.

Love the look of Kaspersky 2012 however.
Hmmm.. no. I quoted the post you quoted, and there is only ONE mention, and it's in KB. In the second post I mixed them both, but that was after you asked if I was being serious...so, nice try, but no cigar
If you want to know why I put it in KB, by the way, I was just transcribing from the program itself, so it would be accurate and see if anyone doing the update at the same time would get the same large update file.

MVPS.host (adware blocking, stops most malicious coding from advertisers too!)
Those four programs (though mvps.host isn't really a program) are all you need really.
Though the only way to bullet proof your system is to have a hard drive image, I use Acronis True Image for this, that way if it becomes inoperable for any reason you can restore it back to 100% working condition fast too!
So, are you indirectly implying Kaspersky is not good enough or not good at all, and it's users are not smart ? Can you elaborate ?
Tell me something: how practical is it to use three programs + MVPS.host instead of just one ?
Is Malwarebytes that good or does it appear to be better because it presents a lot of false positives (i.e. things that are not dangerous at all, but are nonetheless presented as threats and adware) ?
