    i would like to know to know the "good" low resource & essential software’s out there
    like Firewalls & Antivirus
    and it has to be from your personal experience guys

    i will start this off
    a good low multi protocol messenger is Miranda
    and infranview is a pretty compact and fast image viewer

    Daemon Tools - Very low memory usage for a program that cracks and bypasses copy protection on the fly.
    Cool Beans System Info - Great little program for showing ram, cpu and bandwidth useage,

    Sygate personal FW - I use and recommend version 5.5 build 2516. Later builds can throw annoying errors on system shutdown/reboot. On my system they do anyway.

    avast! Home Edition AV - is the lightest on resources in my experience. Virus signatures are updated on a near daily basis and it's free.

    ccleaner is pretty lightweight.
    but very powerful.

    Ya hate to see some one loose data , but I use this program and installed on 5 other computers . Never had a problem ,and I never back up ! But he must have other issues (Linkin Park). I mean with just default settings you should be fine , he may have farted around with the settings .

    I posted about sygate fucking my P.C up, the reboots ect. I was well gutted when I had to change to another firewall. I might try an early build...see if thats any better.

    A great AV for resourses is Norton AV lol...honest...
