Which is Better: AVG Free 2014 or Avast 2014?

I currently have AVG 2014, but i actually wanted to try out a new antivirus program. I wanted to know which one offers the best protection against viruses. But so far i have only been seeing mixed reviews about both programs so i came here to get a better answer from the community !

(Note: I know i cannot have more than one Antivirus programs on my PC which is why i will be removing AVG if Avast is recommended the most. I also have Malwarebytes on my computer as well since that program is Standalone & causes zero conflict with AVG)

hey all I have used and still use avg free and avast free on different computers and have no complaints with either one of them. avg does have a lot of extra crap that is useless but avast does also except with avast you can opt out of it when downloading it. they are both real good free antivirus programs. I also use malwarebytes free and superantispyware free and have no complaints with either one of them. with the above mentioned software and common sense web habits one can be pretty safe in my opinion. poorguy

Kaspersky 2014
Finally out here have got the 2014 version downloaded, installed and well kind of configured the GUI is quite a bit different and in my mind not as user friendly as the 2013 config. But to be fair it seems to be a lot faster installing, updating, and scanning.
