"Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 protects PCs against all malicious programs, combining traditional signature-based methods (detection of viruses based on their descriptions) with proactive protection. The proactive element detects threats by analyzing the behavior of malicious programs, minimizing false positives.
The product is particularly effective against spyware programs, as it provides the option of rolling back any changes to the file system and the registry made by a malicious process. When a malicious object is deleted, all references to it are also deleted from the operating system.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 monitors all critical areas of the operating system for potential threats, and can detect hidden code, such as rootkits; and ensures that data transferred to and from the computer is safe by scanning in real-time all incoming and outgoing emails, as well as files and web pages downloaded from the Internet.
Additionally, the scanning speed of the new software, and the time taken to download antivirus updates, is faster than its predecessor.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 is also intuitive to any drain on system resources. When the antivirus program performs operations that require substantial system resources, it monitors newly launched applications. If resource-intensive processes are launched by the user, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 suspends its operations, freeing up system resources."
