    Good to see ESET doing so well here. Even though I am not currently using it.

    In my experience ESET is the lightest security out there, version 10 doesnt impact my system performance at all; Avast has a very low system impact on my system too, the rest is average.

    Trend Micro AV, for example, is heavy as hell on my old machines with Windows 10, whereas Windows Defender is light as a feather.

    Go figure.

    That's my experience too with Trend, but I've never experienced Windows Defender being light on old hardware.

    Maybe it's because the hardware. My laptop is a 2006's Vaio with 1.46 GHz Intel Pentium T2310 dual-core processor, 2gb ram. The other is a 2010's built up desktop with a similar 2.0 GHz Intel dual-core processor, 3.5gb ram. Both with the latest Windows 10 Pro 1709 (CU).

    That's a very slow CPU, and I've seen high CPU at times from Windows Defender and the resulting slowdowns, with faster CPUs. However, I have not run build 1709 on any of these computers yet.

    I haven't seen Trend on a systems with fast processors, but on the systems I have seen it installed on it does cause noticeable slowdowns. As a result, I often replace it with something lighter, so the customers computer runs faster. Also, I've seen a few computers which have a corrupt installeof Trend on them, where it is installed, but will not run.
