k7 Antivirus Download – Setup
The K7 Antivirus Premium Installer looks very simple. So, we installed and saw when the Setup window disappeared and didn’t return. There is no ‘Done’ message, no ‘Please reboot’ advice, nothing.
The task manager did not show any running installer, but the process did not seem to be complete. We rebooted and the K7 icon appeared on our system tray. Unfortunately, it does not respond to our left or right-clicks, displaying the tooltip of ‘Activation Pending’. After a few minutes, the pop-ups asked us if we wanted to activate the package and update it, but when we clicked ‘Yes Please’, it warned us that the update had failed and we had to reinstall.
Features of k7 Antivirus Download
K7 Antivirus Premium has an exceptional interface that focuses more on your security status than anything else. The big update highlights details such as the last update time, virus definition version, and how long your membership may last. Some action buttons – scans, tools, settings – are placed away at the edge of the window.
The program looks like Quick, Complete, Custom, and the familiar scan types in the rootkit, but it doesn’t tell the whole story. When we executed a quick scan, it was completed in a fraction of a second because it only checked 201 files. Other packages may take two, three, four or more minutes, but they are also very comprehensive, including running processes, loaded modules, startup programs, system folders, installed applications, and more.
We run regular detection tests on every antivirus we review, but these only give a general idea of what the package can do. To fully understand the big picture, we also check product ratings with major independent testing laboratories.
The AV-Comparatives Real-World Protection Test measures the performance of eighteen top antivirus engines against the latest threats. The July-November 2018 report takes an average of 5 tests and is ranked 11th in the K7. While this may be a little disappointing, it is not a disaster, and K7 shows that many other big-name antivirus vendors offer similar results. For example, K7 Antivirus Premium is slightly smaller than McAfee and Symantec, and it outperforms Panda, Iset, Emisoft and Bulgard.
There are some good news about AV-Test and AV-Comparative Performance Tests, which measure the impact of security software on your system speed. The K7 has had some performance issues in the past, but not much. AV-Test’s April and October 2018 performance tests put the K7 first and second out of 18 competitors, outperforming the competition.
