Can you take note of what are the values for "Cached", "available" and "free" ram before and after ?


You have a point, but let's not forget that many people either

a) never bother to run a full scan;

b) leave it running during the night.

If you have as much stuff as I do (and you have twice the storage space), it won't be finished in the next few hours. I had it running for more than 2 hours, and more than 1 million files scanned, and it estimated it woul take another 7 hours to finish. I guess we'll talk in 7 hours then
It says 37 mins, but it's said 20mins for ~5 hrs now.

I have it set to only check new/modified files, so it shouldn't take as long after this scan. No idea how much longer it'll be though.

Here's during the scan:




After the scan:

I use to use kaspersky, avg, and norton and left them all for MSE and couldn't be happier. Not having to pay for anti-virus is nice, and the lack of bloat is also a plus.

I've been using Kaspersky Products since 2005 and never had any problems with it. Removing it was painless, running full scans with just 512MB of RAM was no problem at all as well. Of course the newer versions will use more resources, just like all the other Anti-Virus software do. New viruses and hacks are created every single day and so all the security software will keep updating to be able to eliminate these threats.
Be happy if an Anti-Virus program updates often and tries its best to detect and kill threats.

Kaspersky does a very good job with this!

Why do companies name their products 2012 when its 2011?
I'm sticking with MSE....

Thanks!

Like I suspected, you have the same problem, but it's mitigated by the fact you have 6GB of RAM. Your "cached" and "available" values drop considerably when KIS is scanning, meaning Windows has to drop the cached files from memory to make room for the scanning. The general memory usage also drops, though not as much as in my case, but then again you are using Firefox at the same time, which confirms that Kaspersky is using excessive amounts of RAM when scanning. It shoud adapt better so as not to make some systems unworkable while scanning.

I probably won't have this problem next week because I already have an additional 4GB of RAM, I'm only waiting for a RAM cooler from Corsair to arrive to cool all the RAM, but to people with 4GB of RAM, doing a full scan while working is a nightmare. I wonder how many people try working while doing a full scan. (And I don't mean heavy workloads, just web browsing, office, etc - the problem is the RAM usage, because the CPU is barely used, both in your case and in mine).

The 3 exes Kaspersky are being split to (during an update) are combined using around 88MB.
Understandable if Kaspersky is like Windows itself and many other apps, and adapts to the amount of RAM you have (8GB in my case).
I like this new version, updates are so much faster and the interface is so smooth now

Why bother with anti-virus when you have a imaging backup program like Acronis?
Shhhhh!

People don't like to lose data by having to restore to an image (be it settings or programs ect), and if you keep daily images the virus/malware can be backed up into them, so you're restoring to the same thing you came from. Sure you can keep going back until it's gone, but you're losing days/weeks/months of data. You can also get keyloggers or similar and not even know about them without an antivirus program.
