Skip both and go with MSE.

But here are some comparisons...

Check this out. MSE is light on resources (as is Avira), but most folks here like MSE.

Guess I'll choose MSE.

One question: Do you turn off Windows Defender or do u leave it on. I never use Windows Defender.

If you're looking a light weight AV that uses less RAM and CPU, go for Avast. It uses less than 8-10 MB RAM and very less CPU usage.

Your system specs say that you have 8gb of memory ... why would you be concerned with how much recourses the AV uses ????

I posted a similar thing in another thread. It always amazes me that people are concerned about this. If it takes a few MB of RAM for my AV to do it's job then it's welcome to it.

@Lemur...you should read this "Fanboism" - What exactly does that mean? as it applies to your post here
