    DR.web and f-protect - which is the lighter? I am considering installing on of these on my girlfriends laptop. Its only 600mhz with 256 ram and so I want something very very light - she was using antivir but the update function was starting to annoy!

    thanks,

    Simon. :D

    Do you mean F-Prot? Dr.Web or F-Prot are very light.

    DrWeb & F-Prot are the lightest AV's i have ever tried, so you are considering the right ones, it will be down to personal taste. :)

    hehe, I mean f-prot, for some reason my brain insists its called f-protect! Ok so both are good then, I gather that the differance in resource usage is marginal then...

    Just d/l the trial of f-prot and its great - deffinately nice and light! However, I just checked the AV-Comparatives and it says that f-prot does not have any dialler protection, this worries me a bit. Any comments?

    If the laptop is used for business, it probably shouldn't be a concern. If used to download software or music files, etc, it might be a concern.
