    to be precise, i dont know if KIS have this function of Avira Suite and what's the advantage of this function of AVIRA.

    AntiBot prevents dangerous bot networks

    Agreed. Both suites have an excellent AV as its core. Don't get too caught up on the features or the marketing story from either firm. Try both and see which one is faster and less resource intensive on your system.

    I agree wholeheartedly with Tiagozt. These two are pretty much cream of the crop and you'll be in very good hands. It comes down to personal choice and what works best on your computer. Of course I'm trialing Panda AV 2009 right now so................well see...:eek: :blink: :D

    There's another possibility: Don't use any suite. With what you've got, RollbackRx + Sandboxie+ Router firewall+ perhaps a secure browser(Firefox?) you'll be well protected with a super fast system, and some money to spare. It's only another opinion.

    Well, when you position it as a simple feature set list comparison, yes it is. Further, stating a feature list and initiating a random walk through of what each feature noted is clearly something that can be handled better with a comprehesive self-review of the product documentation.
