    I am sorry, we are not allowed to give A vs. B on this forum. Personally I would test each of those products on your own machine and see how light they feel :D

    Please excuse me if I'm misunderstood, I don't ask on a comparison or A vs B, but only on your feeling of this products on the response time of a computer (specially on boot).

    You are right, the best is to test each product myself !

    Thank you.

    Depending upon the RAM you have, instead of running an AV in real-time, think about running Sandboxie or Geswall in real-time and use an AntiVirus/AntiSpyware scanner on-demand only.

    No AV and just a backup :)

    vonvon, please review this Posting Policy Statement - Antivirus Software. Asking which is best would undoubtedly result in an A vs. B thread.

    There is enough posted information on every available Anti-virus program here at Wilders to make an informed decision. Spend the time searching and you'll come up with your own answer.
