As the program is implicitly designed to page out of ram as much as possible I believe the amount of working RAM shown will vary according to factors such as the available ram and current other uses - MSE fully utilises the memory management of Windows 7

Yes, I downloaded it today from here.

I'm doing nothing unusual. Even with nothing running it's at 28k.

Edit: Ending the process and reopening brings down the usage to 3k.

An anti virus can never run at just 3-4 MB RAM. All you guys need to click Show Processes from all Users in task mgr and then check the exact RAM usage. You will be surprised to see that it uses around 30-35 MB RAM.

You beat me to it. You are exactly right, no way does it run at <4 Mb

I won't be running it as I've learnt my lesson and am sticking to NOD32 unless something drastic happens

How much does nod32 use then? Bare in mind that some av software use another crafty trick of hiding behind the svhost.
