Kaspersky is able to provide protection from many types of malware: viruses (copies itself onto files and starts making its own copies), rootkits (enters system’s deepest levels and takes control over the computer using administrator privileges), spyware (usually legal, but very annoying spying application), security exploits (uses system’s vulnerabilities), and screen lockers (locks the screen and demands that users pay a ransom, because of the supposedly illegal content in their computers). Furthermore, the latest version of this anti-virus also creates backup copies of your files, which can be used in case a ransomware infiltrates your PC.
