    i have both bitdefender 9.5 adn kaspersky personal(lastest version) which one is better for realtime\on demand.

    and is the new bitdefender antispyware module that was added today to the standard and pro of the antivirus the same thing as the antispyware in the internet security?

    between the two, id prefer KAV as resident even if its slow. it has very high detection rates and updates wont affect the resident process (unlike BD).

    well, KAV for certain. ;) It has always been the best. See av-comparatives.org

    Anyway BD has made really big updates but I don't think this is a significant improvement. :)

    KAV, bitdefenders slowed down my pc to a crawl, but this was probably just a unique experience :cautious: , at least hopefully. Also bitdefender is annoying in that its gui always restarts after an update, which will grind your pc down to a halt. In addition, every time I tried to uninstall bitdefender, I would get a BSOD. So I had to do another install over it, then uninstall that, which to no surprise did not uninstall cleanly. (Done with rant)

    Also, KAV has better detection, and the new version is VERY promising, so I would take Kaspersky anyday. Also the frequent updates are a major plus.

    I have to agree with Alphalutra1 in that BitDefender is a little messy. The reloading of itself after an update is problematic sometimes. I have seen it actually crash when doing that, and hence fail to restart, leaving me unprotected. I've also seen numerous errors in event viewer as well, indicating that things are not quite right and smooth. I like BD in general, but think it's a little rough around the edges. My experience with KAV is minimal, but I can't help but think it's probably more reliable than BD. Also had some uninstall problems with BD which left a mess forcing a reformat. I couldn't reinstall and remove it either. So my system was hosed.
