the average time before being infected is dropping from 15 mins, to a little under 5

It's not that bad. I haven't run AV since 1996 and have only been infected twice.

My Kaspersky Internet Security hasn't let me down yet

I have not had an infection since I was in XP (I think I was using avast back then.)

Only drawback from Kaspersky is it eats a lot of system resources so it's not advisable on slow systems.

Glad to hear that but that wasn't the question.
