    Amen to that. I basically swore off Anti viruses cause they'd use more processing than any other program combined.

    If there was any light one that really didn't intrude too much that'd be great. (And works with W7?)

    I suggest just running the bare minimum and not all the extras the anti-virus comes with I know sysmantic comes with a ton of extras and is a hog.

    Avira AntiVir. Uses practically no resources at all, and has one of the highest detection rates (top 3). And it's free.

    Dont forget about Nod32 i think it uses about 16 megs of memory or maybe less and virtually nothing for the cpu its very light, even when scanning it doesnt slow the computer down. Avira is another one that doesnt use much resources.

    I use Comodo (Free version). Seems much lighter on resources than most (if not all) security suites I have tried. The firewall ranks up with Kaspersky's. I have personal experience of it finding 3 critical viruses (I mean ruin Boot.ini file on every shutdown type viruses), that McAfee completely missed.

    You guy's are kidding right ? I'm not worried about the few resources that my security suite uses , that's why I only use an all in one Internet Security like Eset .


    Its my start time that kills because I use a Trojan program ( Trojan Remover ) and Malware program ( MalwareBits ) to help protect me . I have no issues with multitasking on this high end computer so find the less resource antivirus program a moot point .

    I think Avast is the anti-virus that uses the lowest memory !!
    Tried many of them, but have been using it for a while now.
    I recommend it for you
