    Owh please share if its heavier (or lighter) compared to emsisoft . I'm really interested in that

    my own trial with emsisoft cmd is very nice, but the scan does take to long, I hope the new release will be blazing fast :D

    Primary goal is to run safe, but light.

    1) Now running Win 7 32 bit from the admin account with UAC on highest setting instead of behind a created standard account.

    2) Changed my approach because now using Sandboxie.

    3) Using Acronis True Image Home 11 for imaging and trying software (Try & Decide is pretty cool).

    4) Firefox with Adblock plus, Image and Flash block (Don't want surprise skimpy images upon clicking legitimate link.)

    5) Behind router/firewall

    6) MS Family Safety (shark cage approach to internet).

    7) Windows Defender (still might retry MSE)

    Currently, it is a bit slower than EAM on start up. :)

    Uninstalled KIS for compatibility issues.
    During the time i had it (Less than 24 hours? LOL)
    I couldn't play some games, then i checked what was happening and they couldn't access a file cal ntdll.dll, then i decided to uninstall KIS to see what happens and now everything is fine :D

    I might install it again to give it a second chance :)

    My PC was having some clunky moments :D
    Lagged a bit on some tasks and opening programs, though, i think i'll go back to that setup later.

    Just want to try some other software :D

    WE could have a look to see what happend...

    Wait :)
    I'm not saying it was entirely KIS fault, just found that i couldn't play a game (Tom Clancy's: Rainbow Six Vegas 2).

    Checked the cause and found out it couldn't access NTDLL.DLL, i check app control and other logs and trusted everything and still not :D

    BTW, i think this happened because i disabled using the whitelist and auto trusting (I set them manually). I enabled it later but i think it was too late because it was still being blocked.

    Anyways, i'll try it again in a few days ;)

    I heard that KIS 2011 is like a feather?is it true? not bloated anymore?:argh:

    It was pretty light, start up was not the fastest but was good enough.

    I never noticed any hiccups or slow downs, PC was fast as always.
    On Demand scan uses lots of resources (Not recommended to do any high workload things during On Demand scan).

    So in conclusion, it was nice and light, but i still need to try it for a longer time :D

    I found prevx SOL a little heavy at times on my browsing. It wasn't really noticeable till I uninstalled it and put on sandboxie. Certain sites would load faster and I wouldn't have a lag on other sites.

    Noticed a little slowdown in my computer, then i saw in resource manager that Prevx SOL was one of the non SO applications with highest CPU usage. Although maybe thats normal since i don´t have real time av or nothing that uses lot of resources. After uninstall i´ve noticed some improvement in system performance.

    Giving Vipre premium a try :D

    I can't believe Vipre setup is so small, 16MB =OO.
    I'm so used to download 100MB or bigger setups :D
