Installed G-Data IS after some time of not using it & overall pleased - One issue I've had is web protection blocking legitimate sites such as when I tried to download OS Armor from the home page, you don't get notification from G-Data just a network error on download - it blocked Stardock download of Start11, from main site with just network error - When I worked out what module was causing it you can exclude the URL, but this is the issue with any FP, eventually the protection becomes borderline useless as you don't know whether to believe it or not, as in Cry Wolf - I'll see how it goes - Some warning would be helpful as a new user (flashing tray icon?)

Of these two antiviruses, you should definitely choose Kaspersky. It is also worth taking a closer look at FS Protection, which showed the best result in the last amateur complex test.
