Here is a great Free promotional offer for Kaspersky Security Suite CBE 2009 which you won’t find even at the official Kaspersky’s website. This version of Kaspersky is not for sale but it is provided for free by Computer Bild, one of the best selling German language computer magazine in Europe.


Kaspersky Security Suite CBE 2009 is a computer security protection software for Windows system that includes antivirus, antimalware, firewall, antispam, proactive defense, application filtering, antiphishing, network attack blocker, antidialer, and banner ad blocker. This is exactly the same as Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 v8.0.0.504 except that it is re-branded to another name and uses German language interface. But we now know how to permanently change the Kaspersky Security Suite CBE German language to English.

    Thanks for sharing Raju…
    I’m using nod 32 but I knew it that Kaspersky is best.. though never thought of buying its license and Now I don’t need to :)

    • Raju

      Even now I feel Nod32 is better. But Kaspersky is good as well.
      I am glad you liked it :)

    Hi, there! I was wondering if this Kaspersky is gonna work on Win7 x64?
    I don’t need to change the language, I’m fine with it. I heard that the drivers for Vista are compatible with 7 so.. if they are this should be too but I want to be sure, that is why I’m asking you. -_-
