Now please step away from your machine for if you dare to click on the reply button you will see a huuuuge CPU spike of 100% CPU usage for 1 milisecond. I'm not sure your big admin ego and your fragile machine can handle this... Just kidding, but you may see the point.
Also, antivirus system sweeps suck and therefore you can turn them off.
im not saying antivirus is stealing tons of CPU (on newer systems - on older ones? yes it does)... what i am saying is..
how efficient is it that, to even use my machine safely, i have to put in place safe guards? Seriously... If i am going into battle, do i want to wear a bright orange jumpsuit with a target on it? or camo so they dont even see me? which makes more sense?
