I'm looking on switching antiviruses because Avast is a bit difficult with false positives (i have the free version) and I was wondering if I should switch to Kaspersky premium or upgrade Avast. I download a lot of things which are false positives like game cheats so I was wondering which one would be better. (I also use Malwarebytes free for scanning)

Thanks

Kapersky or eset those are my favorites personally eset works amazing for gamers.

Kapersky would ID those as false positives as well, because the algorithm for all even incompetent anti-viruses looks for certificates. If they see something with code for installing something malicious in the Windows Registry (which both malware and cheats do). Cheats just utilize their power a different way, but the Anti-virus can't tell.

If an antivirus isn't throwing up false positives, it's not working.

Kaspersky is the way to go. I sometimes download trainers and it has only given me a false positive once.

I recommend Emsisoft an alternative to both of those programs. Kapersky has had some privacy issues as of late, not sure I would trust them with access to my device.
