Which is the most bloated (B1 -B14) / lightest (L1 -L14) AV you have used?
the pool sort of suffer from a design problem.
the result will show both bloated av and ligth av witouth distinguing between the two
for bloated I voted Panda 200x. It takes up lots of hard disk space and between all it processes it also takes up RAM. Also, last time I checked, Panda doesnt let u selectively decide what to install.
for light, i selected F-prot and nod32. F-prot is so light, the best comparison might be to looknstop and ghostwall. looknstop for its memory usage and ghostwall because it doesnt have lots of "unnecessary" features.
nod32 is also light but not so much as f-prot. it scan scan gigs and gigs of data, and it wont take an hour(s). plus its resident protection is modular so the user has control over what monitor he/she wants enabled.
it just occured to me, that i omitted two AV. f-secure for bloated and kav for light.
f-secure has xx (or at least a high single digit number) amount of total processes. it may not slowdown my computer but why so many processes? KAV/KIS and NOD32 can do just fine with only 2 processes.
KAV is not bloated because its installer lets u pick and choose the components you want.
Bloated = Kaspersky 6.0
Lightest = NOD32 2.51.26
