Still quite misleading and borderline false advertising...
But uner UK laws they must list any restrictions at the point of sale, so any purchasers are aware of any issues etc.
also Kaspersky Pure is £59.99 while Kaspersky AV is £29.99. I only upgraded my Pure 2 months ago, so Basically paying twice the price for their AV.
yes anyone would know Pure will not work as during the Win 8 upgrade it tells you to uninstall Pure before it can continue, what go me was their attitude saying the the AV components will work but thats all, when they show WIN 8 compatible in the requirements. this also got me
The Internet Security 2013 is using the new 2013 engine which does support Windows 8 fully, - Pure 2.0 is using the 2012 engine, but has the additional features in comparison to Internet Security such as Password Manager and Encryption etc. The Pure 3.0 due early next year will incorporate the 2013 engine, hence then be compatible.
so if they are already using the 2013 engine on the AV and IS why have they not utilised this with their Pure already.
I have been using Kaspersky since 2000, but i am considering moving to Norton due to this.
