    Hi, a while ago i posted about quite a few 10mb updates from f-secure.
    i checked my f-secure folder in program files today and its taking up 500mb disc space which seems alot.

    kaspersky 6.0 needs at least 50mb space.

    i want to know how much space the folder in program files of your av takes.

    this includes norton as a refrence
    nod32
    kaspersky on your pc
    antivir
    dr web since its update are meant to be tiny.
    trend micro
    bitdefender
    i just want to know how much space the folder in program files takes up to compare. to see if lighter av's use less hard drive space which they should
    thanks in advance

    AntiVir Personal Edition Classic Program Files = 25MB

    C:\Documents and Settings\AllUsers\Application Data\AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic = 90MB

    Have not removed any reports or logfiles for nearly a year and within that 90MB 'Documents...' Folder above, 87% would be 800 'Reports' and 'Temp Files' and 'folders'.

    Well anyone ruled out quarantined files? Plus, some AVs store majority of it's files in user profile folder...

    Same here. But don't forget AV bases and other files are stored elsewhere other than Program Files.
