Avast! FREE and Kaspersky Antivirus gets ADVANCED+ Award on AV-Comparative Test

Avast! FREE Antivirus gets ADVANCED+ award on AV Comparative Test October 2012 

I already used both of the antivirus and the difference between the two are Price and Performance. Avast! is FREE while Kaspersky is a paid antivirus software for your security protection against online threats such as viruses, malware's, spywares, phishing and spams.

Both Avast! FREE and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 gets Advanced+, the highest award from the latest AV-Comparative test of 20 anti-virus solutions after scanning 240,859 malicious variants.

False alarm test (lower is better) evaluates the quality of file detection capabilities of anti-virus software and results for Avast! FREE is 11 and 5 for Kaspersky which is much lower. Overall results included both Avast! FREE Antivirus 7.0.1466 and Kaspersky Antivirus 13.0.1.4190 on the Advanced+ rating of AV-Comparatives in terms of detection and false positives.
