Kaspersky Tech Support or lack of

Can anyone tell me how to get Kaspersky to react and give support. I reported a problem 2 months ago, Kaspersky have taken on average 7 days to respond to each e-mail when they ask me to carry out various test. I am now no further forward and KIS is letting Malware in. Has anyone found a clever way to put the proverbial boot in? It is sad that their support is so slow when they get such an accolade for their IS package from PC Advisor.

No Security program can stop everything that is why you need good back up the likes of Malwarebytes or Superantispyware.
Are they false positives or genuine malware infections.

That was just some bad reviews but i am sure there will be plenty good ones as well.

The main problem had been that, following an update back in April, KIS Full Scan locked up the computer. Subsequent actions requested by Kaspersky eventually led to a complete reinstall of KIS with a new version. This did not resolve the Full Scan problem but then led to KIS stating the computer was at risk and suggesting "neutralise all" to some malicious threats. However, when one clicks on the neutralise button, nothing happens. As I have said, my biggest gripe is Kaspersky's appallingly slow response

In response to Mat Alan, realtime protection is set but the problem seems to be with KIS not doing any actions since the newer version was installed.
As I have said before, my real request is to see if anyone knows how to make Kaspersky respond in an acceptable timescale

your chosen anti/malware, as is, with all of them are not the complete package, you will always get new definitions slipping through, so you sorta have to take the belt and braces approach to these issues.

You might want to review some of the FREE progs. on offer and build your defences around them.
There are some superb tools out there that work very well in conjunction with each other...

cannot post any recommendations (still at work)
access issues...

Hi,
I think that the best way to get support is to use their user forum if you are able to. On the main page,click support then user forum.Select support for home users.Response is usually very good.

Thanks Poitier.
That is where I first started but after their first reply the long delays between replies started
