Take it from someone who have used both, both are excellent products. Each have its pro and cons. Herer is what I think Kaspersky excel;

a) Their heuristics. (Maybe your pure miss stuff because you didn't set heuristics to high. For any product I used, I always set the heuristics to high)
b) Their clean ability (not to say avast is bad, but I haven't tried the cleaning of avast. I have installed KIS on a heavily infected computer, it was able to install, update and clean without problem)
c)Kaspersky cloud is better than avast at the moment but this is the first time avast have cloud, so wait for it to improve. ;D
d) Kaspersky have excellent self defense (based off malware research group. For two years in a row,(I think), it have receive the platinum award-the highest award)

Why I used avast?
1. Tried and tested. Was bought over by the detection rate. Tested some viruses bought back from school and saw Kaspersky and avast both detect the same thing.
2. avast have less bugs. (main reason why I switch)
3. Light on resources
4. It is free and very good
5. Fast (4.8 scan speed was like a snail. Now it is like a Ferrari ;D)
6. I like what avast is doing. (their ideas, their generosity)

I would like to used the paid avast if I can see a box avast for sale in stores in my country. All I see are Kaspersky, Norton, Trendmicro, Avira. Yet to see a box version for sale.

I have installed Kaspersky in infected pc. It just delete important system files and makes the system handicapped. It gives only one option to user after a restart do a clean install of windows. I think this is the way it clean virus in a pre-infected pc, if it clean then it takes ages to clean a single file and several restart. I am talking about both Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 and Kaspersky Internet Security 2012(In which they say they have improved alot)  ;D ;D
But if its installed on a clean pc then it never allow a single virus to enter.

If I remember rightly, probably because your post just contained a direct full quote of LunarWolf post and no comments or reason why you would quote in full.

Even so there really is no need to quote in full, just quote any relevant part not the full post that you are going to comment on.

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?
Or we can also find malware that Avast! misses and KAV + Norton finds It  ;)
