The bad thing about Kaspersky is that you can't run it from a
VM (for example from Linux), and it's horribly slow from a CD or USB.
Plus the computer can't be used during the scan, which can take over
12 hours. But it is thorough ....
It is not true that the computer can't be used during the scan.
True, you can open a command line and "have fun" with the few
utilities that come with it.

OR, you can connect to the internet, and use the horribly slow
browser, and risk being hacked. Can't remember root's password, but
it's a default. (you can change it).
OR, you can just let it run all night (disconnected from a
network) while you sleep. That's what I do.
