Kaspersky Lab products can detect thousands of malicious programs. Some of them pose a great threat to your computer, others can be harmful only under certain conditions. These are the types of threats detected by default:
  • Viruses and worms
  • Trojans 
  • Malicious tools 
  • Adware
  • Dialers 
  • Suspicious packers
  • Multipacked files

You can also enable detection of legitimate programs, which can be used for malicious purposes.
