    I'm wondering why you keep on posting this nonsense????
    Let me just reply to it ONE more time, and really, this is the last time;
    Kaspersky and ESET do NOT, I repeat, do NOT use the same engines.
    Both companies develop their own technology.
    Kaspersky does give their AV technology into license to several other AV products but NOD32 or the ESET suites are not among those.
    Cheers.

    at this point i have a good deal on kaspersky, so do the 30 day trial right now, and if its good i'll keep then, if not i'll move onto nod and just stick to that. seems like those 2 are the major players in the game

    Used NOD32 for like a year (ver.2) then upgraded to ver.3 didn't like it that much. So I got KIS ver.8 so far so good I prefer its UI over NOD32. KIS scanning seems to be a lot faster.

    So far, I've tried Avira+Comodo, AVG Internet Security, ESet SS, and KIS.

    KIS wins by a margin. Feature plenty, and good on resources. The default settings are perfect for most users, but for advanced users, detection, filtering tools, and rules are highly customizable and easy to modify.

    ESet comes in second. Less customizable but is very user friendly with a simple easy to use interface, light on resources, generally a good all in one security suite. I would recommend this to most normal users not interested in monitoring every single port, but just wanting a piece of mind in knowing that a good security system is working behind the scenes.

    AVG is another good suite. Even easier to use than ESet, though heavier on resources. I had to disable certain protection modules (linkscanner) in speed up internet surfing. Least customizable out of all the suites.

    Lastly, Comodo+Avira Free are feature plenty and highly customizable, however both when added together uses up the most resources. The leaning curve on using comodo firewall pro is pretty high as well. Without proper training of the program itself, users are generally bombarded with allow/deny prompts. At one point, it reminded me of the dreaded UAC prompts in vista.
