    :rolleyes: Can you come up with a FREE virus protection program that is easy to use and maintain, has small regular updates, is effective an is not a memory hog?

    Thanks

    Brain scanner 2005. It has everything you need.

    BS v2005 comes with improved heurisense analyzer that is based on Common Sense technology.

    It has everything you are looking for:

    -FREE
    -Very small update (Daily pill size and weekly cumulative bottle size updates)
    -Very effective. Better then KAV.
    - No memory hog. It works outside your computer and has no impact on your machine.


    Hope it helps. ;)

    :D What's the harm in asking? Are you that sure all have been discussed? In any event it is good to see others opinions, after all isn't that what we come to Wilders for?

    Thanks

    I suspected you would read between the lines in my post. It is jokingly sarcastic not serious. But I guess i was wrong.

    :) This one just might work, but one needs to engage it don't they. I might need tech. help in this department. I'm sure there are many volunteers.

    Oh yes . I know . All AVs will miss some . Just trying to learn . Not being a smart butt . I am trying to figure what makes BS better . Are you just saying it is a good secondary choice to back up KAV or is it better than KAV . Just curious

    The lightest AV has to be the e trust v7 promo. etrust v7 promo (lifetime free licence) is still available for free download. http://www.xlangaming.com/nuke/modu...irus v7.0.139
    After loading up e trust you need to update the drivers http://www.excid.com/faq/?id=1&language=en > click on "update antivirus" tab on the left
    This is still a very good anti virus with both vet and InoculatIT . very light on ones system too. You can always download a free anti trojan / malware scanner like Ewido or such if you feel the need to suppliment it.

    Or you could try the 12 month E-trust AV free trial available at the Microsoft site. You do have to fill out a form to get a link, I might be inclined just to get the v7 download. Hard call. It is relatively light, but there are really just a handful of contenders in this category.
