I find it somewhat funny that even though people build highly powerful rigs, often install too much RAM, overclock their CPU's and push performance to the max....they still worry over a few MB's here and there for something like antivirus.

Why do you have 3 av programs installed? Theres no need for more than 1 and it needlessly uses up resources.

Click on "Show Processes From All Users" from the task manager and then post a screenshot.

RTP and an Active scan.

hi !

thanks Airbot !

as you can see above, i thought it was a bit low...

i was using my "USER"-account, when i switched to my "ADMIN"-account, taskmanager showed some more memory being used.

2 new screenshots:

look for MsMpEng.exe
RealTimeProtection=29.016 kB
Scanning=40.332 kB

however please observe that iīm still logged in as "USER", so taskmanager shows 2 userinterfaces for MSE...

hi !

swarfega: "Why do you have 3 av programs installed? Theres no need for more than 1 and it needlessly uses up resources."

isntīthat quite obviuos ?

i have been using MSE-beta, and of course i donīt trust it, since itīs a beta....

so i decided to keep AVIRA, at least until MSE is out of beta and released.

that turned out to be a VERY good decision, i have seen some strange behaviour, MSE turning itself off several times, and then refusing to turn on, even after numerous tries...

why A2 ?

because it has some additional protection not included in MSE...

currently iīm using: MSE, AVIRA, A2, MBAM, Winpatrol, Comodoīs firewall & Defence+, and a HOSTS-file, and i normally run on a "USER"-account.

and guess what ?

i have a "CLEAN" PC...

the only thing that gets detected are false positives, thatīs because i have some A/V & firewall testsoftware in some folders.

"Theres no need for more than 1"

what planet are you from ?

Whatever floats your boat ...
And mine is running at abt 67k So its all good And idk why, but i usually prefer MS antivirus products, they some how run better on my W7 lappy then non MS Av's...
