avast works for me
I have used Avast for years until we we were given a free 1 year home subscription to Vipre anti virus and anti spy ware by Sunbelt after we purchased a enterprise edition and it is great. Avast is pretty low on resources but Vipre is noticeably less. Also according to the tests Vipre is better but who knows.
The problem with tests is that the company's tests always rate their software amongt the best.
There does not seem to be a normed test for antivirus software.
Basically, if it works for you - stick with it, if you've had a problem, change it (or if its too slow, etcetera)
Yep there is no set standard on AV tests.
try AVG, I really like it, havent noticed any performance hits
Dr Web, Nod32, F-Prot, VBA, Command, KAV, Avira are all well-known lightweight AVs which should all run without any performance hit on your computer.
Add to that list Norton AV 2009 which I am using on my laptop. The first time I have used Norton since 2001.
bitdefender total security 2009
Just upgraded to KIS 2009 from 7 - it seems to run faster...
