Today, I uninstalled kav and installed mcafee (actually net associates that is provided by uni). First thing I noticed is that it is MUCH faster. It does use more memory, but uses alot less cpu time (about 4-5 times less). I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience about kav's awful resource usage? Of course, none of them even compare to nod32. For some reason that thing is like a rocket! I had been looking at purchasing avk for my main machine but since it also uses kav it would be stupid for me. This is the main reason I am curious about kav performance. btw, this is kav 5 personal edition.
