Sorry Logan but the machines I installed it on it refused to work and froze up the machine. I was sad by that because I really wanted to test it out and recommend to others

I installed the latest final version of this last time it was mentioned here. Seems to work, but sure as heck is slow at updating itself!!

Would assume, as with any AV, it updates at least once daily, if not more, and I've been on this computer with it installed for about 45 minutes now and it hasn't gotten an update yet today!

Doesn't seem to slow this old POS computer down as much as Avast or Avira did though.

I am thinking about using this program myself. I have a few XP machines to fix up and they could use this. My worry is slow down but if for you it is OK, then I could give it a go. Mind telling me what are your specs? Mine have about 2 gigs of memory and all have at or near 2Ghz CPU

You didn't notice the update process but it works. When the setup ends, the update starts automatically and it's a pretty hidden process. If you pay attention you gonna see a small rectangle flashing in the bottom, right corner of the main screen, that 's the update working and btw the today update was very small around 1.6 MB and that's because Kingsoft is 'cloud' based.

Hi, Yes our free antivirus is very light and can won't slow down your computer

Please let us know if having any questions.
