    Based on Speed (booting time, opening programs, performing other tasks, etc), Memory Consumption and Performance.
    Please also explain why you chose it.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure this thread will last as A vs B discussions are now allowed here.

    But anyway, my vote is for Roboscan Pro as it is extremely light.

    I have seen some computers where NOD32 (and therefore also Eset Smart Security) has been very light, while on others, at times there are quite noticeable slowdowns.

    Hi Roger.

    My poll is not about A vs B because as you can see it has the 3rd option for Others.

    Thank you.

    Please let me know of you find anything "faster", "lighter" etc. complete AV security solution than Webroot Secure Anywhere! :D

    Also a poll should have more choices I guess. - I used to have Avira Premium (also not slow or heavy, besides making boot a little slower) running at my first line of defense and Webroot as second in command, but since a few months I am more than convinced WRSA is enough for me, being just a normal surfer, doing nothing "shady". ;) Getting rid of one unnecessary AV and keeping the probably fastest there is on the market I never before had a snappier system without changing hardware. Okay, SSD helps a lot. ;)

    I started many years ago with Eset (IIRC it was v2.5x?) but I felt it declined so I don't use that anymore. Never tested Norton, neither old infamous version nor the newer ones. I simply don't like bloated suites. Won't install such a big thing ever again as long as tiny Prevx / Webroot cloud solution exists. :cool:

    I'm sorry if my poll doesn't meet your criteria but as i said before it is not about A vs B as you can choose Others if you have different answer.

    Thank you.

    Definitely Kaspersky. I completed an entire year's subscription in a little over thirteen days by having to re-insert my activation code several times because Kaspersky Security kept 'dropping' it. But later I learned once the code is re-used several times the AV is blocked. Now that was an incredibly fast 12 months of protection.

    WSA, not sure if you mean AV's or security suites though.
