    Kaspersky EndPoint 8

    Hello,

    Is anybody using the new version of Kaspersky which is called "EndPoint 8"?

    We have had lots of issues with it and just wondered if anybody can relate to this?

    Unhappy

    Do you mean that it makes the client run very slow? I installed this over half term an now having problems with the older machines running slow. Has anybody got advice to which component I can safely disable?

    So far i have disabled the vulnerability monitor but that still leaves file antivirus, startup control, privilege control, device control, web control, web antivirus, system watcher, firewall, network attack blocker and KSN all enabled so I assume it is one or more of these component causing the slowdown.

    Is the CPU being pegged at 100% by avp.exe?

    No I don't think it is. It looks more like it's scanning with the hd light lit solid.

    Kaspersky really lost the plot with their last couple of releases, painful resource usage was killing our workstations (even the quick ones)... only solution in the end was to move to ESET

    We have just bought 3 years of Kaspersky so I don't think we will be changing it just yet. I did look at ESET and Vipre but as Kaspersky was £5 for 3 years it won hands down. Vipre was £15 for the same cover and ESET even more.

    I'm still stuggling with this software on the old machines even though I've disabled most of the modules so I thought I'll try an old version but the download page only has version 8.

    Does anyone have a link to version 6?

    Edit: I've found the link!
