Hello.. I remember a thread here previously about some one that upgraded from NIS 2009 to NIS 2010 and complained that his XP machine had 120MBs of RAM less available after the upgrade. However the processes that NIS 2010 installed didn't seem to consume a lot of memory. If I recall correctly it turned out that "Svhost.exe" was consuming the extra RAM with NIS 2010 installed. Uninstalling it would free that RAM again. Last night I was reading some AV reviews and it seems to me that every one just checks these processes for RAM and see like a very low number and are very pleased but I'm starting to wonder. It was obvious from this person's experience that NIS 2010 consumed a lot more resources then NIS 2009 through the Operating System's own process. I believe this should be investigated more as we might be looking at potential smoke screen attempt to hide resource usage. Your professional and objective comments are appreciated.
