I'm curretnly using avg, and i've had it for quite some time. However, i'm thinking it uses up way too many resources. There is a ton of stuff on here and I don't really know what to make of it, so I figured I'd ask for help. Currently, AVG is running 6 tasks in my processes, and it total to using about 20,000 K, whatever that means. I was considering getting nod 32 or kapersky, but I don't want to pay yearly fees. If it was a one time fee for the program, i'd be all for it. So, out of the free programs it seems AVG, AVAST, and AVIRA are the best free programs. 1) Which program out of the three provides the best protection and uses the least in resources? 2) Do the other 2 programs use more resources than AVG? 3) If i were to delete AVG, should i just do it by the add or remove program feature or is there some other way I should be deleting an anti-virus program? Thanks for all your help!
