Kaspersky database not updating


30-Dec-2017 15:43

I have recently installed on my Windows 10 Pro computer the Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 (version 16.0.0.614(e)).Kaspersky issued the following message right after the installaion, then began updating. It’s one of the best, if not the best, security application developers for Windows operating system.

This has been going on for the past three days (during which I have tried to update manually for may be 100 times, to no avail). All these high percentage malware and virus detection rate is a marketing gimmick to sell the software. Unless I am some sort of kaspersky fanboy I will never be too inclined to the idea of using Kaspersky over Norton.Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was using Kaspersky Internet Security on two of my desktop computers only without a single issue, and about ten days ago, I uninstalled the Norton Antivirus from my HP notebook and installed Kaspersky Internet Security as I had a spare license key with me.

After installing the KIS, I activated the product by entering the license key and then manually updated the database to the latest available version.

I thought it might be conflicting with AVG free, so i removed that and tried to do it again, but it goes no further than %2 Should i just forget about kaspersky and get Norton or one of the free internet security programs? I do need a qood internet security software as I do internet banking all the time and do a lot of downloading too. Norton goes beyond the call of duty and tries to erase any file with a suspicious name. As far as the comment goes that Norton detects suspicious files and erase threats, isn't erasing threats the job of an antivirus?
