Kaspersky Security Scan 16reviewed by Tony Hill on 4 star rating4 star rating4 star rating4 star rating4 star rating(4/5)
PC user's security is being increasingly threatened nowadays. For this reason, there are a number of products available, which can identify and protect users against all kinds of threats.

One of such products is Kaspersky Security Scan, which does come with one drawback though. The drawback is that it only scans your computer, but does not provide any kind of active protection nor cleaning of already present threats. These are the functionalities for which you will need to have also Antivirus installed.

It comes as a freely available application, allowing you to scan your computer for malware and other security issues. It also provides a detailed report about any vulnerabilities present on your computer, along with suggestions for how to fix them.

Additionally, it comes with a Software Updater, which can automatically scan apps on your computer for updates, and also perform bulk updates, with a click of a button. This way you will be protected against any possible security holes, which may be present in outdated applications on your PC.

Applications settings also provides with some fine-tuning options. Here you can select whether you would like to perform deep scans and configure automatic scans. You can also enable or disable notifications, in case any issues have been detected during an automatic scan.

• Available freely
• Does not offer active protection nor cleaning of already present threats
