The downloader will take around 4 minutes and 5 seconds to finish the install. The software will proceed automatically and once the process is over, we were greeted with a notepad file that awaits to be copied.
At reboot, we were already greeted with an information banner recommending Kaspersky internet security beta version 3 for Windows. The free edition also known as Internet Security lets you apply a series of settings through a simple wizard-like interface. In order to tweak settings like Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, right clicking on the user and selecting Properties shows both options.
The free version is no silver bullet for infection protection, as it does have some quirks, including the inability to be a firewall. When you uncheck the Firewall option as shown above, the firewall is disabled, and then there's no way to re-enable it. It should mention in the installer, but either it was ignored, or skipped.
Following those, there are a number of settings for your browser. Every single one is properly explained in the installer and in the help, including the ability to disable pop-ups, set the home page, and even delete your search history. The software provides an option to set your home page and enable or disable the speed dial, which is very useful if you use Google Chrome. We found this feature particularly useful for Google Maps, especially if you're using it regularly at work.
Speed dial was not available in Google Chrome since it launched earlier this year, but you can set your own shortcuts to popular sites with a mouse click. Users will appreciate the ability to set a few shortcuts such as their Facebook, Twitter and Skype accounts.
