    Hi.

    My questions:

    -Is it heavy/light on resources ?
    -Is it easy to use/configure ?

    I've used version 2.xx ( trial ), and at that time the only problem was the false positives ( too many ).



    Thanks.

    1. It uses 35 MBs of RAM for both the main process and OD (On-Demand) AntiVirus scanner. The CPU usage is around 5-15% for the OD AV scanner (depending on how big the file that is currently being scanned) and less than 5% for the main process.

    2. Its easy to configure (a dialog pops up when a program access the network and if enabled, adds a start up entry). The rest of the program has a tabbed UI with plenty of advanced options.

    3. I only had one virus that might've been a FP (It detected one of the files used by Maxthon2 to show the favicon of a website as having a virus).
