Windows 7: Lightest Footprint Anti Malware

Lightest Footprint Anti Malware

Having descided to not renew my Eset nod32 v.4 (good product, horrible tech support and tough to cleanly uninstall) I am looking @ the sheer speed of a malware client. I've used them all over the years. Currently I am looking @ Avast or Avg. Which do you fine fellow 7 users find more efficient in Win 7 rc 64 bit? I am (like I suspect many of you are) waiting for Morra. Until then I have to run something and I really do not want it dragging sys resources. I thank you for your time.

I use Avast. Did use MS Security Essentials, but I want to know what my apps are doing, so I went back to Avast. I use Avast solely because I have legal access to a license.

Use a fat HOSTS file that you manage.

What does tech support have to do with which app you choose, anyway? MS has horrible tech support but you use Windows. Many of my peers and superiors here use Eset nod32.

Morro/MSSE - MS Security Essentials.
I was on ESET Security Suite 4 but I just got tired of it. MSSE works wonders and is very lightweight.

Oh! Well allow me to answer that. Superiors, you and Leo Laporte aside eset were complely rude and frankly dismissive of me when I explained to them thet their product was mistakingly targeting my facial recog sw as antiviral. I spent WEEKS (do you want the transcript? I will post) being treated like ****. Given the wrong routing method for them to analyze. Turns out the RECOMENDED method of Nod32 4 is not the correct prcedure. Nope. That send your file to Europe where they cannot "access it". So I spent the next week trying but never getting ananswer from them as to where and how to send the SW file for them to look at. They then told me to go elsewhere.
SO. My friend, tech support never is expected by me. But when something this basic fails si badly and has been so highly pimped, if an isssue does occur and I have paid them $130.00 for 2 pc's I want a DAMN answer. OK

Eset = Lightweight yet Robust

100% Perfect!

I mean seriously where else can you get a 40mb application that has protection against malware that is greater than Kapersky?
