why have kaspersky higher reputation than avast?(ridiculous)
« on: March 24, 2011, 06:47:51 PM »
I cannot understand why kaspersky have higher reputation comparing to avast
I used avast free sence 41418 and nerver never got a virus infection which avast was unable to clean
So, before ais , i bought kpure
As i have some kpure days license remaining, i have make a test
I download a INFECTED file.So what? no kpure reaction and a imediate avast reaction
So, just as curiosity, why kaspersky have higher reputation than us?

NO antivirsu is perfect. I can find malware that KAV misses and Avast finds. I can also find malware that KAV misses and Norton finds. Then I can find malware that Norton misses and Avast finds. Your point is?

My point is : in brazilian sites avat reputation is ridiculous, they inform "avast catches nothing"and kaspersky catches everything
I think this should be a paid false info in order to make many people buy kaspersky
I cannot believe many people can be so inoccent

Paid false info is part of business.  An ugly, nasty part of it, but a reality all the same.  

At the end of the day, the better product will speak for itself through actions, not words.

AV Comparatives test for false positives showed Kaspersky 46 false positives. Avast had 9 false positives. So yes, they detect more.  :)

see the whole product dynamic test on av-comparatives. you will see which one has a higher detection rate.
on the other hand, just one malware is enough to ruin your day.

Is that the reason VHS won against BetaMax, Windows 3.0 against OS/2, IE 4 against NetScape Navigator?  ;D

Ok maybe that was a little too altruistic of me, point taken ;)

Still, I don't think that is how this (Avast vs. Kasper) would play out.  I see no end to either company in the near future, really.  Plenty of room for both.

many people never know of Avast because you cannot find it in retail.
some people think Norton is the best because it is everywhere...but the AV is only a small part of the Norton world.

I would rather it be "my little secret" than incur the costs of a boxed product.

Vecchio, we can't believe in paid reviews, paid reputation scores...
Take into account that avast is on #1 in Brazil, i.e., the market share is in favor of avast.
