Kaspersky Free AV - https://www.kaspersky.com/blog/kaspersky-free-goes-global/17811/

I installed it today and it seems to be playing with Malwarebytes nicely. So far.

I only have .NET 4, a requirement, installed on one computer so I can't use it.

As plodr has noted check if you have Net 4 or above. I have net 4.5 and so far I am impressed with the performance.

If memory serves, Kaspersky will object if you have another anti-virus installed.  It will automatically remove some incompatible software, but some have to be manually removed.

If so, have you uninstalled Webroot and run the trace removal tool?



Edit:  http://support.kaspersky.com/12965

Quote
During the installation Kaspersky Free finds incompatible software and offers to remove it automatically: Webroot AntiSpyware Client 3.5, Webroot AntiSpyware Client 3.5.1.5088, Webroot AntiSpyware Client 3.5.1.5118, Webroot Internet Security Essentials 6.0 / Webroot AntiVirus and AntiSpyware

Before the installation of Kaspersky Free, remove this incompatible software manually: Webroot SecureAnywhere, Webroot Software 7.0

Maybe try the KAV removal tool, reboot, and try again?

Why not try it on your Windows 7 laptop instead of XP?

I believe that's a network driver - do you have anything interesting software-wise monitoring network traffic?

A thread I saw at Kaspersky's forums also recommends using the remover, and doing that solved things. Not sure if that'll work here, but worth a try.

As an aside, I find my Surface 3 seems a little faster using this.
