    I still don't understand their scoring system for the life of me...it seems odd that MS Security Essentials was ranked so low when their numbers were better than some of the ones higher for protection.

    Avira and Avast did poorly in comparison with the top tier applications.

    Bitdefender AV Plus was surprisingly not heavy on my netbook when I trialed it earlier this week. They must have been busy updating the program to make it lighter.

    Everyone should give it another try. ;)

    Cheers!

    1) 1GB
    3) I think three or four, but no more than five. I'll have to reinstall it.
    4 & 5) I will be sure to run a scan after installation! :argh: You see, I am one of those lazy, wild critters that disable scheduled things and rarely run scans. :D

    xandros, I thought Norton Internet Security 2012 scored well and it did perfect each time in the Real-World Testing.

    That makes no sense: testing a product that scores worse.
