I actually second the bad resources thing.. It is sitting idle in my little thing in the taskbar by the clock and using 30mb's.

I love AVG and have been using it for years with zero issues ever. At work they have Norton...god I hate Symantec crap. It's using 70mb right now. It also takes up to 40% cpu time when it's running "in the background."

Mine is using like....less than 4MB

There are 4 processes:

avgamsvr.exe - 604K
avgcc.exe - 672K
avgemc.exe - 1920K
avgupsvc.exe - 696K

Unless I'm missing a big one....Maybe yours is running a scan?

Ah yes, I just started a scan and it creates a new process which uses ~30MB. But that makes sense....I would expect it to use more resources when scanning...

I use Symantec Corp just because its the program required to be onto our laptops in order to be connected to our network. Its alright, but it does suck up a few resources.

AVG is excellent, I'd recommend it in a heartbeat.

Kaspersky give me bad memories though, its a bit troublesome to install sometimes and it conflicts with Vista in a few places.

Votes in favor of AVG here. I used AVG and i do like it but when i was using im my Toshiba notebook that has a 2.4 Pentium M 768 ram, it took for ever to reach the desktop on boot. I removed it and loaded Norton Corprate on it and it booted up just fine.
