    This week I tried Kaspersky and Bitdefender, but now am running PandaCloud until something lighter comes along. Which will probably be going back to running no AV at all.

    Yeah it's hard to justify taking it off. PandaCloud is light-weight, easy to use, has a good detection rate and low false positives.
    I usually just have an on-demand AV installed to check downloaded files, but this isn't any more noticeable than an on-demand AV.

    Have you tried AVG? In my particular case it's the lightest AV I've ever seen ;) .

    my comp setup: signature

    my mom's comp: Sandboxie, Malware Defender (silent), EMET, DNS Advantage, NAT Router

    btw: does anyone know if the license permissions of appguard are similar to sandboxie, with sandboxie you can use your license on as many pc's as you like, you just have to own the computers the license is running on...Can I do the same with my appguard license?
