Windows 7: a-squared uses 620kB memory for realtime protection !

a-squared uses 620kB memory for realtime protection !

hi !

which Antivirus & Antimalware uses the smallest amount of memory for the realtime protection ?

running taskmanager as admin i looked at a-squared (a2), it uses 620kB....
i only find 2 processes, that seems to belong to a-squared: a2guard.exe & a2service.exe.

am i missing something or doesn´t a-squared use more memory ?
that must be the lowest usage, or does anyone know another A/V & A/M that uses less ?

I am sure you are missing something.
Can't remember how much was memory usage but I have used it for several days and I am sure it was heavier then 620kB...

I know A Squared uses between 3-8 MB RAM, but not 620kb. There's something wrong. I guess its not working ATM. open a2 and then check the mem usage again.

If you don't spend your time on the internet trying to get something for free, generally you don't have to worry about viruses. I've been running win 7 without an AV for a couple months and it hasn't slowed down at all.. and it still has the same memory usage and number of running processes it did when I finished setting up this laptop.
