Least memory using anti-virus

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I want a good anti virus that uses the least memory. Be "least", I mean very very little! I need it to barely use resources until I get some more memory. So, whats the best one?

NOD32 <3 it

I had Nod32 and I didn't like it much. AVG actually runs 3 processes on your computer, so that's a no go either. Anything else?

I use Kaspersky security suite (firewall & antivirus), I go from off to ready in 15 seconds (yes i have a raptor), but the rusky software is awesome and minimal in resources used.

NOD32, hands down. Not only does it rank #1 in scanning and in proactive tests, but ranks #1 in system resource usage. The reason is uses so few resources is because it is written almost completely in assembly. Thus making it small, fast, and lightweight.

If you don't mind me asking, why didnt you like it? If you tried it when 2.7 was the latest version available, its understandable not liking it. 2.7 isn't very user friendly, and has a lot of advanced options that can be intimidating. However 3.0 is out, which has a completely redesigned GUI and also has adware/malware protection. I would give it another try if i were you, using 3.0. Personally i still use 2.7 because 3.0 is TOO user friendly, and i feel like they took away some of the options that the older versions had.

Like i said, try it again. There is no AV that will even compare with NOD32.
Super Duper!
