When compares to likes of :
Symantec 2012 Product line
Online Armor ++ and Mamutu
It's lighter than all of those you mention.
That really depends; http://www.raymond.cc/antivirus/
Yes, it depends on your particular system, not what Raymond.cc finds on his particular system. All we can do is say what we see in our setups, basically the OP needs to try it to know if it's the same for him.
On mine it is the lightest.
My experience is that Prevx 3 is the slimmest and lightest anti-malware software on the market; and I've tried most of them.
That has been my experience too, with the exception of Webroot Cloud AntiVirus (Prevx 4) beta which seems even slimmer and lighter than Prevx 3.
Isn't the i/o pretty high? That has been mentioned in many threads on the forum before.
Thanks for that.
Am I blind or is the ESET Solution missing from the last test ("gaming")
I would assume that is the most resource intensive test of them all and one of the "important" tests (outside of I/O) since it uses all the capabilities of the system.
Also would you run PREVEX along side of NOD32? If so then which solution?
Please don't say it like I didn't know, IF that was what you meant, cause that is offending to me personally.
EDIT: ... and the reason it's is because I've what's called Asperger's Syndrome, and for me my knowledge is one of the things that I "hold most dear". At the same time I'm very open to other's opinions, views and arguments, but never if the person expresses any of these things in what I would call the wrong way, that is, criticizing my view.
I did not have any intention of offending you, my intention was to say what i had to say and nothing else. I haven't got a clue what you "know" since i do not know you personally and you do not know me for that matter, i can only go by what you post and you posted a link and i simply posted my opinion about how the OP will be able to judge.
@King Grub: It's high i guess if you speak of I/O reads, but not compared to for example Panda Cloud which i also use they are about the same. It's not high concerning writes.
Yeah, kind of. At least that's what I always saw on my systems.
Okay, thank you for understanding and explaining.
This is just due to it scanning files (any AV with very low I/O counts is probably just not scanning as many files) and it does so in such a way that does not slow down the system so you shouldn't have to worry about it
