If you don't mind me asking can I know the reason why you changed to Kaspersky from ESET?
Mainly the Application Control module. I'm always around anti-exe software or modules, and I didn't like the combination of VoodooShield with antivirus, it tends to slow it down after some time. I have found Kaspersky doesn't do this as a complete suite as long as you don't pair it with more software. Just one full scan every two or three weeks to recognise all the files and lower the impact on performance makes it strong and light.

I like where you’re going with this. I too have noticed slowdowns with either ESET or GDATA when combined with VoodooShield. Thought it was just a mental thing. However, I don’t notice any slowdowns on my wife’s desktop with VoodooShield running alongside Trend Maximum Security. :unsure:
