    Hi,

    I have at one Sony Laptop PIV with 512 MB in RAM, Windows PRO SP-2. I am looking at good AV and have two candidates: BitDefender 9 and Symantec AV Coroprate, with my Company have access at this AV. I am looking between both alternatives:

    1.- Light AV, less impact in my system.
    2.- Good AV detection, better AV.

    Do you would give me your comments about these AV or experience, suggest ?

    Thank you,

    BitDefender. Reaction times, proactivity and virus lab efficiency.
    Sure it's not as great in tests but real world situations played in its favor many times. Which i can't exactly say for Norton...
    Still, they are both very good solutions.

    Ok, like understand that BitDefender would take less resources vs Symantec right ? I tried F-secure but had high impcat in system performance was very slow my Laptop. I should take the less Impact AV over rate detection

    You should try both, both are good AVs, however I think BD have better heuristics. :D:)
