Reviewing 1.9.37 (Jun 6, 2006)
Kaspersky Anti-Hacker is dead. No further versions will be released. Instead look at Kaspersky Internet Security.
Reviewing 1.9.37 Beta (Jun 2, 2006)
I use now Agnitum Outpost. An enormous disadvantage of Kaspersky Anti-Hacker is, that it does not work any longer if the licence is expired.
Contrary to Agnitum Outpost: this software works again,works further with ALL functions - only the update is then locked, if the licenceperiod is over.
In my eyes is this OK. If i pay for software, it should work up to the end of life.

This is still the same program as the 1.8xx versions. Whhile KAV is most certainly a top tier anti-virus, KAH cannot hold a candle to the better firewall programs. Strange to be updating this as the Kaspersky Internet Security Suite 6 is soon to be released.

According to PC mag, the best firewall they tested was Zone Zlarm Pro. The best free firewall tested was Kerio's. Outpost came in a close second. Kaspersky didn't rate very well. Now I don't think PC mag. hasn't any sort of agenda or biase such as Cnet(download.com) or this site. If I am wrong on this I am sorry and would like to see evidence to the contrary. As far as AVs are concern, Bit Defender 9 barely beat out Kaspersky's AV. I have found both Zone alarm pro firewall and Bit defender 9 very good at keeping my computer free from viruses. Remember that to complete your security package, have 2-3 good adware and spyware programs and keep them updated. Finally, most AVs or firwalls will charge you to renew your subcription at the end of one year. The difference betweein Kaspersky and the others is that the others will give you a break on price if you are renewing as opposed to Kaspersky which sticks it to you at renewal time(if I am wrong on this i am sorry and someone can point this out). Also keep in min this Anti-Hacker program is also included in Kaspersky's all in one suite which has not gotten very good reviews. I would prefer that Kaspersky sticks to what they are good at, bring down the price and keep improving their AV product. The only reason that I gave this a 3 is betanews doesn't let you write a review without rating the product. I used the anti-hacker program from kaspersky a couple of years ago and wasn't impressed but I'm not going to say anything about this version. So the 3 is a default rating to me given Betanews inability to allow you to comment on a product without having to rate it.

AS I have said before Kaspersky make brilliant AV products and louzy firewalls ..
