    This is heavy on RAM... around 222 MB. Also, heavy on CPU during Updates. Uses Tencent Engine, Tencent Cloud, avira, and Tencent Repair Engine

    I also found Tencent PC Manager kind of heavy on resources.
    Qihoo-360 products are much lighter though. ;)

    That's my understanding too, and even though I've used at least 16 different antivirus and antimalware softwares so far this year, I will give it a miss for now.

    I decided to try it, and it was as other here and at Malware Tips have found, it is quite heavy. Also, scan times are slow. It tooks over 15 minutes to do a quick scan.

    On the plus side, you can set it to prompt when threats are found instead of automatically quarantining them, and it is quick and easy to add detected items to its whitelist to prevent future detection of them.

    For the moment I think 360 Internet Security and Baidu Antivirus are much better options as they have a similar user interface and are lighter - particularly 360. Hopefully future releases will improve on performance.

    Try to disable the AVIRA engine. I can tell you that Tencent without AVIRA enabled is lighter than anything I tried before.

    You couldn't pay me enough to use this (or Qihoo, or Baidu, etc etc)

    I too wonder how good the detection rate would be without Avira.

    I find that disabling all the engines an AV offers is the best way to a lighter PC.

    You don't have to do that if the product is built around ONE fined tuned V8 engine that runs beautiful. Just stay away from products developed by companies that think "the more engines the better right?" and includes a V6, V8, V10 and V12 engine in one product. There are better ways to make an effective product than pushing in engine after engine and hope they will do wonders, because they won't.

    I knew someone would mention them. I didn't mention Zemana, HitmanPro, HerdProtect....since I thought it would be obvious I was only referring to AVs with real-time protection, like Tencent, Qihoo...and other multi AV engine products.

    I thought to myself "if I leave Zemana and HitmanPro out....someone else will mention them" I was right. :D

    I understand this is an international forum, so many nuances may be lost, but... That was sarcasm on my part. :)

    Even if I understand English...sarcasm may be a bit harder and not very easy to spot in all cases. To me you sounded pretty serious, but it's good to be wrong in this case....:)

    No worries, that's what I figured. I know language barriers in any language makes sarcasm near impossible to detect.
