I've posted this at the VBA32 forum but no one seems to be going there anymore. So I figured this is the next best place. I've used every malware product on the market, as those who visit the Wilders forum can attest to. For some reason VBA32 keeps entering my mind as an AV of choice for one of my systems. But why should people choose VBA32? Yes, it has good detection and great heuristics. But at what costs? VBA32 has been increasingly and needlessly resource hungry as can be seen by using the last couple builds. Its installation requires more and more space; nearly 40 meg. Its RTM requires more CPU and RAM useage. This is not good. Especially is you're trying to crack your way it to an already crowded AV market. Take a lesson from NOD32 and Dr Web; small and efficient is better that large and slugish every time. We do not need another F-Secure, Panda, or Symantec. VBA is better than that but seems to be going in the wrong direction. What good is an AV if it cannot be run? VBA32 is good, sure but it has a long way to go. It is a great AV but it needs to work on resource usage in every aspect. It is no longer the lightweight AV it once was. There are rumors about changes to the RTM, but those have not been elaborated on nor have they been confirmed.
