    Does anyone have experience running Panda Global Protection 2009? Some user reviews complain that it is extremely heavy on resources, but others insist it runs light. I know that differences in hardware could account for the variance, but I was wondering if anyone here has had personal experience as to the resources used.

    My experience is that it is light. I don't remember the exact amount of cpu and ram but i do know that it was surprisingly light.

    Something that uses a large amount of disk space does not necessarily mean it's "heavy" on the machine

    Just try it out; I used it in a VPC w/o any major performance loss. Ram usage is not a huge deciding factor.

    My experience with it on Vista x64 was that it's a bit on the "heavy" side in that it seems to slow down overall system performance somewhat, especially browsing. Norton 360 and McAfee were actually lighter. I'd recommend avoiding it.
