    Happy B'day indeed:D

    Thou how can you say that Zillya! is "light" on system resources I wonder?

    From your website:
    ""Low system resources consumption Zillya! Internet Security takes only 120-130Mb of memory.""

    Thank you :)

    Do you think 120-130Mb it's too many?
    Compare it's with other AV's. Look this, for example: http://www.eset.com.sg/comparison/

    Are you using 256 MB of RAM? If "YES" then probably Zillya IS is not for you...;) Oh C'mon on Man...These days everybody have more than 1 GB in their working system, so why are you bothering about 120 MB onlyo_O?

    @ Avinash
    it is true that many have more than 1 gig of ram but to me it is not normal that just FW AV and nothing else takes more than 120 meg

    85% of this memory usage - AV bases, loaded to memory. Most AVs use much more, but do not always show it.

    Because I only got 512MB of RAM, and not 256 :D

    Even if I had 4GB of RAM I would not like my AV/IS to use more than 0-80MB of RAM while idle, however while scanning on-demand it's OK if it uses more.

    LOL ...Really RWL ...

    If you have 4 GB then why don't you use it. For what reason you are keeping it free? Any specific reason for not using it full?

    Because I don't have 4GB of RAM, I only got 512MB unfortunately.

    What I meant was, EVEN if I had 4GB of RAM I would not like that my AV/IS used that amount of resources anyway;)

    Windows uses an API call to get the list of processes and their memory usage, you could manipulate the results of the API. Its same like Rootkit activity...:ninja:

    Its just like hiding your process from the process list...

    The real story:

    There is a huge difference between idle RAM usage and memory usage (memory usage: total memory consumed (physical and virtual) by the protection components installed on an idle computer).

    Let's take my security product for example, ESET. It has always been praised for it's low resource usage. But the last years people are saying it hogs system resources: because it uses a "staggering" 50MB of RAM. Nowadays that is more than other products claim to do. So people say ESET is heavy.
    Now let's look at it's memory usage, it is 162MB (remember: both physical and virtual). I see some people will be shocked, and they will now think ESET is extremely heavy. But you are wrong, let's look at some competitors. [I am sorry for the the fanboyism, but I think it is within the limits.]

    ESET Smart Security 4: 162MB
    Kaspersky Internet Security 2010: 246MB
    Norton Internet Security 2009: 363MB
    Trend Micro Internet Security 2009: 431MB
    AVG Internet Security 8.5: 719MB
    McAfee Internet Security 2009: 973MB

    The test also tested more performance aspects: boot time, on-access scan, on-demand scan and open a large file. See the link.
    The overall rankings based on all the above mentioned tests:
    1. Kaspersky, 2. ESET, 3. Norton, 4. Trend Micro, 5. McAfee, 6. AVG

    One note: the source of this information is june 2009 and so it is exactly one year old, but really, in that 12 months it didn't change that much. Most products are just 1 version higher (All products with year version are 1 year version higher, ESET a minor version higher (4.0 -> 4.2) and AVG a major version higher (8.5 -> 9.0)), no shocking differences. Maybe 5% better performance max, if I am really optimistic. Also notice KIS2010 and NIS2009. KIS is always released earlier: May each year, just like this year. Now we have KIS2011 and NIS2010. In fact like I said it is exactly one year ago. And I think it is still really valid.

    The test was performed by Cascadia Labs, requested by Kaspersky to test their product performance against their main competitors.

    For more information, results and methology, see:
