    I've been testing this program the last 10 days or so,

    but one question remains unanswered...

    What is the impact of Giant on your system performance?

    Not regarding the scanner (that is NOT an issue) but ...

    Is there anyone who knows more about the performance impact
    of the Giant Antispyware agents ? (read memory usage) ??

    When i was testing it, i was very impressed with the results, but my pc
    was running out of resources (memory).

    The problem is that i am not sure (yet) if this is caused only by
    this program or by a combination of applications i use.

    At this moment i busy the run some additional tests,
    but in the meantime it would be nice if there are other users here,
    that have more info on this.

    It is a very interresting program, but if this is eating all your systems resources, i'll have another look at it in a year or so ... :>)

    Thanks for the info Kent/Eldar, but i haven't had/seen the problem with FP's
    and i couldn't find anything about the performance issue with the agents in
    the hyperlinks you've posted.

    Nice to read this info anyway .. ;)

    I've seen that Giant made a lot of improvements the last few months.

    so if there is someone else that tested Giant recently ...

    If the performance problem is not caused by the agents,
    then i think i am gonne try this Antispyware

    but if everybody has the same problem, i'll wait a few months and test it later again.

    It looks very promising though..

    ?

    @ Eldar : As ut on main leet, zie ik niks zo gere as ut Brabantsu Laand !
