    Reviewing 2014 14.0.0.4651 (Aug 14, 2013)

    Version 13 was fast and compact.

    This one consumes up to 600MB of RAM and it's dog slow.

    No, thank you.

    It's time to switch to Avast.

    Went back to KAV 2012 after two years with another AV. Just updated to KAV 2013. Cannot tell it is running.

    1. Thrashes your HDD by constantly (every 5 seconds) writing to registry - reasons are unknown and never disclosed (the exact location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\kl1\OutData and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\kl1\InData).
    2. Thrashes your HDD by constantly updating virus signatures cache files (and never cleans cache files directory and this directory can grow to several hundred megabytes).
    2. Implication from point 2: causes excessive files fragmentation.

    Otherwise it's the *best* AV around.

    Great anti-virus software, only downside is that recent versions have made my system slow down considerably. I installed MSE as a comparison, and the difference in performance greatly favoured MSE. KAV seems to keep scanning the same core files over and over again even though it has settings to not do this.

    Best Antivirus suite ever. Not a sh!t like NOD32.
