    Hmmm ……. after years of techies telling us that it is NOT good to run two instances of antivirus softwares at the same time because they can conflict and crash your system, NOW by what you have written you are saying that I can have for instance, Eset Smart Security 6 AND Kingsoft Antivirus 2012 installed and running at the same time?

  2. Bobby Phoenix

    Yes. KAV2012 is more of a add-on, but can be used by itself if you have no other antivirus. I am running it along side of MSE, and I have no issues at all. Very nice indeed. Safe, secure, and piece of mind.

    like ed.
    i had the same thoughts.
    make sure you cook your meat well or it’s bad for you,then a change of mind and raw is good.
    so what are we rearly to believe in the end all these changes only confuse.
    and make you wonder if the so called experts rearly have a clue or is rearly all to do with advertising cash.
    like bobby.
    i use mse and after trying many others i am happy with it.
    so why add more,i expect i could bung it in the pile with c clean and walwarebyts and the rest of them all we were told could run along side then we are advised too many is not good and could clash.
    so please make your minds up.
    thank you.

    Hi, yes we have done numerous tests on working along with other AVs during beta stage. Currently KAV 2012 SP3.5 is NOT compatible with Vipre engine serie( GFI, Ad-aware, UnThreat and other products using Vipre engine). The majority of others are fine.

    Sadly I see no offering for x64 systems which these days make up a large if not the majority of the systems on the market…any intent to release something for those users with x64 operating systems in the near future?

  7. Ed

    I am now using it with Eset Smart Security 6 and it is doing ok other than the ocassional “packet alert”from ESS6 whenever Kingsoft Antivirus transfers any information , Then again ESS is sensitive to alot of stuff.

  8. Kingsoft Logan

    Hi James, KAV 2012 can run on x64 system, but might have some bugs still on x64.

    GENTILE,ANANDK, TI INFORMO CHE SU WINDOWS 8.1 PRO,64 BIT,ESSENDO,COME A TE BEN NOTO, WINDOWS DEFENDER,QUANDO SI INSTALLA L.ECCELLENTE KINGSOFT ANTIVIRUS 2014,SI DISATTIVA W-DEFENDER. DUNQUE O FUNZIONA W-DEFENDER O FUNZIONA KINGSOFT. PERTANTO NON E’ VERO CHE KINGSOFT FUNZIONA IN PARALLELO E COMPATIBILITA CON WINDOWS DEFENDER,COME 2 LINEA DI PROTEZIONE. GIUSTO PER PRECISARE.EVENTUALMENTE FAMMI APERE CONME FAR FUNZIONARE,INSIEME,ED AMICHEVOLMENTE, W DEFENDER E KINGSOFT ANTIV. CORDIALMENTE . DR.ADAMO ADAMAS KADMON

  10. Hi, Would appreciate comments in English so that I understand them. 🙂

  11. Bindesh

    Yes Dr Adamo you are right. Kingsoft AV by now (2017) may be a far better AV than Win Defender but it is available only to China. No point in arguing.
