    This is a question for those that currently use F-secure antivirus. How much memory does it use and how light does the program feel?

    I've been trying out a bunch of antivirus programs and I haven't found one that was light enough for my liking.

    I've been using FS Protection beta and I find it really light. No performance loss in general.
    You can always run a trial :)

    "lightness" is completely subjective. you're better off trying it yourself since you're the one who ultimately makes the decision of whether it's suitable or not

    I too was using the FS Protection beta, and I liked it a LOT. Very light, gets great scores. I just happened to switch to try out Webroot and never looked back.

    Thanks for the advice.
    I'm trying out a 30 day free trial of Kaspersky and after tweaking the settings, I'm really liking it. The resources it uses is so little (90mb of ram). What a difference from bitdefender (at least for me).
