    I decided to try the latest F-Secure Client Security, but am facing some odd slow-downs. (AthlonXP 2000+, 512mb RAM) I believe it's some kind of conflict as this behavior has never been witnessed even with the heaviest scanner. (the firewall component was not installed). Running any program takes atleast 5 (may go up to 10-15 seconds) to load. Everything from IE, to Task Manager, to even a 264kb time synchronizer has a 5-10 second delay before it's loaded. Browsing with IE takes a few seconds before there is a response. Unloading F-Secure seems to do the trick (as it is the culprit apparently). Only other AVs on are NOD32 (completely disabled), and KAV5 (also disabled). Has anyone ever seen anything similar to this? (also disabled Outpost to be sure, but not the conflict)

    I am using F-Secure Client Security. It works perfectly. :D

    To be honest, I don't know what is going on on your computer, but I would try to uninstall all other AV.

    With the two responses reporting no problems it does indeed seem like a conflict of the software kind.
    After you have investigated that, another thing to consider is that you may be able to tweak the resident scanner to ignore 'said' software (providing you find the culprit!)
    I have used various flavours of 'f-secure' before and whilst they couldn't be described as 'lean' they certainly weren't hungry.


    Please post any findings.
