Better thinner AV than NOD32
Posted on 2011-02-24
Finally I have found worms that NOD32 does not catch. It is generally an excellent AV, but it has too much system overhead and really slows down computers not to the fastest specs. SO I am going to dump it.
Recommendations on THINNEST, LIGHTEST AV program on system overhead, especially start up, where NOD32 takes 1 minute extra of the boot time. I want something with HARDLY any system overhead at all.
Please do NOT mention -- Norton, Symantec, Mcafee, etc.
I am interested in the smaller, preferably FREE AV products like Kaspersky, Avast, AVG and similar. Because I have used NOD32 for so long, I have lost track of what is better now.
MUST have low system overhead, not slow boot, be thin and fast, catch as many as NOD32, if possible, scan emails and online site viruses. Reliability and frequent signature updates are also key.
Prefer free, but not vital. PLEASE STATE REASONS why the one you recommend is better. THANKS !!
BTW -- HAS to be desktop based, not an online AV program.
