    Hi All,

    Like many others I went for the new Asus EEEPC.
    The model I bought has a 5 Gb solid disk. I have added a 16 Gb SD card and upgraded the memory to 2 Gb.
    I allso intend to install windows XP prof.
    Now I have to decide wich anti virus to install. It has to be lite in footprint on a machine like this.
    On my desktop I have used NOD32 for years, allso participated in the beta for VS 3. NOD seems to have become "heavier" on the system resources (Or Am I just imagening things?)
    So I took out a licence for Kaspersky 7 for my desktop, wich I am using now.

    Should I use either of them for the EEE PC? Or are there better choises for this machine (with win XP)

    Thx for your input.:D

    Hi Pollux4092

    First welcome to Wilders. If you read the above stickies, you will see that we don't permit A vs B AV posts. Also if you read these threads you will find plenty of info and people's opinions on the various AV products around. In the final analysis you are going to have to try them and see which one fits your machine, and your style best. The minute this thread becomes an A vs B thread it will be closed.

    Pete

    With the two AVs you have, they are generally regarded as very good and will protect you. As to how they will perform -- The suggestion I think most would have is to try them both. You won't be unprotected when using either one, and then you have a true test of how it works performance-wise on the new machine.
