    Im currently using AVG Anti-Malware (which is their Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware package combined)

    It seems quite light and easy to use.

    Any opinions?

    I was using F-Secure 5.4 for Workstations with AVG AS, but was not so confident in this version of F-Secure - as is old now.

    Tried Kaspersky, but too heavy for me - system slowed too much and ran badly.

    Would you try Bitdefender?
    It's very light and powerful.

    I believe AVG AM is the version that IBK tested at AV Comparatives. Take a look.

    It looked good to me, although I am not using it. I would not be afraid to use it with confidence.

    Best,

    When I tried AVG Anti-Malware I found it to be light but theres few options to tweak, the GUI isnt very intuitive, and it uses more memory than I feel comfortable with (regardless if it doesnt slow down my computer).
