Yeah, that's a little light and might cause some issues I would guess.

I'm running a Core2 quad CPU here, although only 2.40Ghz, but 8GB RAM.

just to clear things up...eset smart security is NOT NOD32. NOD32 is the anti-virus program and there are no problems with it on windows 7 (it has one of, if not the, lightest footprint of any av program). The rest of the security suite may have issues (i don't know because i don't use it) If you're gonna talk about NOD32 then talk about NOD32 not Eset Smart Security

Ok, I'll give the AV a try, although the smart security is NOD32 + Firewall.
The AV engine is exactly the same.

@Dinesh
Your first screenie of the Norton memory drainage. Why would that surprise you or be a bad thing? It's caching files to make it run faster. Any smart program uses caching. As soon as the scan is done, Norton releases the memory and uses only about 15mb as you have shown in you last screenshot. And Norton never auto scans while you are working. It will wait until the cpu is doing nothing. That's the opposite of dumb.
Why is everybody so fixated on memory usage? You don't put in 8gb, just to sit there, right?
Programs are supposed to use the extra headroom to their/your benefit.
As long as they release it when they're done.
Just want to know, is that the Norton BETA sec suite? or only the AV?
(hence again, BETA)

I'll post back my findings on NOD32 AV only.

i m using norton sec suite beta. It didnt detected a single malware on a heavily infected pc. I said the engine is dumb because it can detect and remove only those malware which are there in its update database. it highly lacks hueristics. i've got 14 days to test norton. however, so far.. not impressed.

I was setting up Windows 7 RC7100 on my custom earlier today and ran into an issue with my trial ver. of Norton AV 2009. Norton installed fine, but after reboot, Norton would not load (at boot or by launching program manually). Win 7 said something about incompatibility... Any truth to that?
