Why would avast users require free Intrusion Detection Software, when an Intrusion Detection System function exists within the the latest avast version.

Totally different situation. Not to mention, I'm not suggesting that users have either an intrusion detection system or an anti-malware program.

The term anti-virus is very much old school as the greatest number of detections are malware. \true virus detections are very rare now.

Home users are not going to configure snort.  ;)

Besides Intrusion Detection belongs at the gateway in your UTM appliance (SonicWall, FortiGate, Sophos XG, Etc, etc)
