I really think Kaspersky products are first rate. The issue with KIS seems to be settings specific... now that others using Intel systems have reported the same issue.@hjlbx
That being said i am not sure why you encounter problems with AMD and KAV/KIS products and why you would say that AMD is low end.
Low end use to be the case years ago.
Nowaday's AMD rivals INTEL in many ways and some of their CPU"s have actually a lower speed then INTEL but much higher burst speed.
Just saying buddy.

I understand what you are saying Nico@FMA .
Here in the US, AMD processors are virtually always offered on sub- US $400 laptops - to keep the prices down. Rarely will one find one of AMD's higher-spec CPUs offered through retailers. The reality is that AMD is offered through Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Staples... These outfits just don't offer the newest AMD FX series - with the exception of Best Buy website or purchasing FX system online.
So the typical AMD CPU\APU immediately available here is no better than an Intel i5... but one can get it with effort.
I have two AMD A8-6410 which, at the time of purchase, were considered low-end... they are good enough for typical daily use, but not anything more than very basic gaming - they can't handle more demanding graphics and CPU gets over-taxed.
I have been using AMD for quite some time. It is picky about what it gets along with as far as softs. The point I was making is that the user has to consider that softs may not always work as intended with all hardware\firmware.
My Intel systems always perform better...
AMD does not compete with Intel at the cutting edge, e.g. i7 4940 level.
