Thread: Antivirus (resources)

  1. #1
    What antivirus uses the least amount of system resources (still reliable) and starts up the fastest, right now I have norton antivirus 2004 but it hogs resources and startsup really slow?



    Right now im thinking AVG Antivirus but I don't know.

    I use a layered protection scheme. I use little programs that do specific things. Not bulky programs that try to do everything.

    My current protection is all freeware: Avast&#33;4 home AV, Sygate personal firewall, SpywareBlaster, xp-AntiSpy, SpyBot S&D & ScripTrap. These little free programs stop virtually everything.

    Try looking into Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition.

    corp edition will take up less memory and start a bit faster, I use a corp edition of Mcafee that works great too. Currently it is 4.5.1 SP1

    I&#39;m using AVG right now and it&#39;s great, but I&#39;ve used nod32 in the past as well, it is also quite well w/ using a small amount of resources
