Um... Kapersky? Oh dear. Kapersky is up there with Norton on the "things you definitely don't want on your computer" scale.
My advice? Remove Kapersky and install a free package with good reviews. That's the only way you're going to be able to get a decent speed web browsing.
I've been running Kaspersky for about a year now with no problems. The 2010 is much faster than earlier versions. What's you computer specs? Here's mine if you're wondering:
4x Intel Xeon Quad 2.8 GHz (4 cores)
2 GB ram
600 GB (1x500 2x40)
I probably wouldn't recommend it on a laptop, although it should work fine on a somewhat powerful desktop. Try Comodo, it's light and secure.
Try disabling the real-time virus protection. (I don't know if that will make it faster)
I agree entirely with welshsteve. Kaspersky Internet Suite is a great piece of Software to protect your PC. It does use idle time to scan your PC, and does do a start up check when you boot your PC, which slows things down a bit initially.
As with all software, as time goes by it gets more powerful, and it may just be the case that your PC can't handle it. If that's the case, maybe your PC is too old and slow and needs replacing.
Hope this helps.
