Re: What AV are you running?

Emsisoft Anti-Malware on the main box, MSE on the others.

I assume that EAM is not "heavy" any more? I've run it in the past it, but it always just felt heavy on any system I've run it on. What are your specs?

I don't find it heavy at all. For instance, the background guard is using just 268K of RAM right now.

I'm running an i5-750 on a P55 mobo with 4GB of RAM.

Now that you've got me thinking about it, I'll run for a while tomorrow with it off and see if I notice a difference.

I'd be curious. I will say that I have not run EAM for probably a year, so maybe they fixed that up in the newest version.

I use EAM on 2 i7 PC's and I also have it installed in an old 3.2 GHz P4. Not slowing down any of my PC's. The only program that slows down this old desktop a bit is Online Armor.
