    Dr. Web would be a good choice.

    The only problem is that it's not free. Other light AVs are NOD32, and F-Prot. (These are not free as well).

    If you want a free and light AV, I'd recommend AVG or Avast.

    AntiVir also runs light on a computer.

    Another very light, commercial AV is VBA32.
