Symantec is garbage and has been for many years.  Don't care for
Kaspersky from past use, but that was indeed KAV as I've not used
anything else from them.  Perhaps I should evaluate their KIS offering.

I've had absolutely no trouble whatsoever with Avast other than on my
own personal desktop and that was strictly caused by my usage patterns
and would not affect "normal" users in any way; I recommend and install
avast on not only on family and friends boxes but on clients as well.

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of
those who have much, it is whether we provide enough for those who have too
