Hi there - if you are worrying about such twiddly unimportant things as 13 MB RAM usage you probably need a new computer or you might be better suited to doing your work on an old abacus.

Memory is ALWAYS used in an OS -- but guys get real --this is a TOTAL IRRELEVANCE.

How the software performs is much more important -- I can give you a ziddly teeny app (around 30 KB -- yes KB only) that could kill your machine STONE DEAD in seconds.

I'm not worrying about something so trivial.

I was surprised to read that Avast! uses only 2-4MB on Dinesh's system when it uses up to 15MB (usually 13MB when using Firefox) on my system.

Well, Avast is the lightest AV I have ever seen. I have used and tested almost all the AVs out there but this is the most lightweight. Average RAM usage of Avast is around 4-8 MB. Sometimes its even between 1-3 MB.

Surprisingly true.
