Kaspersky Internet Security produces excellent result in independent malware removal testing

Kaspersky Internet Security 2014, the security product for home users, was the top performer in the Malware Removal Test conducted by the independent AV-Comparatives lab in October and November. The test assessed how well security products could help a computer recover from a malicious infection which occurred before protection was installed.The experts at AV-Comparatives chose 11 malware samples for the test. The sample collection was deliberately small so that a different disinfection process was required for each malicious program. In the course of the test a computer was infected with each sample, one at a time, and then a security solution was installed. The lab’s experts assessed 16 home security products from different vendors.After each stage of testing, the analysts rated each product according to two criteria: whether it was capable of neutralizing the malicious program, and whether any user intervention was required. To earn full marks the security solutions had to successfully remove the malicious program and reverse any changes it had introduced into the system (creation of files, entries in the system registry, etc.). Products which failed to remove the malware were awarded the lowest mark. In terms of user involvement, automatic treatment with no intervention from the
