    Kaspersky Internet Security and Speccy

    Hopefully I've posted this to the correct place, if not, Mods please move it.

    Major problem with KIS2013 and Speccy. This has happened to me twice. Not a pleasant outcome.

    After installing Speccy, then running it...... made my system slow to a crawl. Didn't see excessive CPU/Memory usage in task manager. Configuring Speccy to show the CPU temp in the tray was a total disaster.

    Temp displayed for a few seconds. Then a BSOD. Upon reboot, Kaspersky wasn't running. Couldn't start, databases corrupt. I tried to download their uninstaller. Couldn't save it. Got a "file/directory corrupted" message. That showed that not only was KIS corrupted, so was Windows.

    I'd made a restore point before installing Speccy. Tried to restore, couldn't. Corrupted. Tried to repair the drive, that failed. Tried to "refresh" Windows, couldn't. Only option was a full "reset" of Windows.

    Kaspersky removed the "safe run" aka "sandbox" in Internet Security 2013.

    Don't know what the issue is between the programs. Doing a Google search for "Speccy Kaspersky bsod" returns nothing (just posts I've made in a couple other forums). So, if nobody's posting about it, I guess I'm the only one having such a problem.

    I installed HWiNFO64 (64bit) and it runs just fine. Scanned the drive with HDTune, and it shows no errors. Also scanned the drive with the tools menu (right click drive/properties) and it shows no errors.

    All I know is that I will not install Speccy until I can find a cure. Don't want to go through the mess of having to reinstall numerous programs again.

    Just for comparison, I use the Speccy portable version because I never really saw the need to do a full install because it is used so infrequently (for my purposes):
