Its a slimmed down version of internet security and supposed to be lighter on resources. Good deal for those that only use the antivirus features including myself.

Kaspersky Free is a free application designed to protect your computer against malicious programs. Each type of threat is handled by a corresponding application component. Enable and disable components independently in order to configure the application. Kaspersky Free comprises:
File Anti-Virus, which protects the computer file system.
Mail Anti-Virus, which checks inbound and outbound mail for viruses and other malicious programs.
Web Anti-Virus, which intercepts and blocks scripts on websites should they pose a threat to your computer. With Web Anti-Virus enabled, all traffic is controlled and dangerous websites are blocked automatically.
IM Anti-Virus, which maintains security while using instant messaging applications.
Anti-Phishing, which checks whether web-addresses are on the list of phishing websites.
On-Screen Keyboard, which prevents malefactors from intercepting information that the user enters with a standard external keyboard.

Kaspersky has been having a hard time doing business in the US recently, what with a recent wave of allegations that it's a Russian stooge. Bloomberg, for instance, published a piece accusing the company of working with Russian intelligence. The security firm's founder Eugene Kaspersky offered to provide a source code he said will prove that his company isn't in cahoots with the Russian government. However, the US government still kicked Kaspersky out of the the lists of approved vendors covering IT services and digital photographic equipment.

Sucks for them if they are 100% on the up and up...they are just being lumped in.
