hi !

yes Dinesh, less then 1 (ONE) MB...
have you not seen my thread ?

a-squared uses 620kB memory for realtime protection !

a2 is the ONLY antivirus-program i have used for several weeks now,
and my PC is running without any problems.

i´m going to do a REALLY BIG A/V-scan with several other A/V´s like Avira, Avast, MSE, Kaspersky etc.
to see if a2 might have failed to detect something.

Here you go. I just entered the end of the URL into Google:

a-squared uses 620kB memory for realtime protection !

Here's the site for the AV: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/

Here's the thing though. On a 4GB, Quad-Core system I don't feel a load running Avira, and I'd rather rely on a trusted and tested AV suite than one that I've never heard of.

Oh I see. It uses around 600 KB RAM. that's very low.

It's supposed to supplement your current AV-suite:
Quote:
a-squared Free runs on Windows XP, Vista, 7 as well as on 2003/2008 Servers in all 32 bit and 64 bit editions.
During scan are approx. 100 MB free RAM required. We suggest to use it on computers with at least 512 MB RAM, best would be 1 GB RAM.

Unlike other malware scanner products, a-squared Free was designed to run parallel with other antivirus and firewall software without troubles. In case you find a conflict with another software, our support team will help to solve the problem quickly.

The free one runs alongwith other AV, Hackerman is using the full anti malware.

hi !

Dinesh: i don´t understand why the link doesn´t work, as it´s the right URL....
but i have noticed the problem before when i post an URL to another forum-thread.

anyway, just copy & paste it into your browsers address-field, and you´ll get there.

and as you can read in that thread, that memory-usage IS correct,
confirmed by Emsisoft, a2 only uses 2 processes for it´s realtime-protection.

Product FRED: wrong link !
i´m using the full version: a-squared Anti-Malware - Best protection against Trojan Horses, Spyware, Viruses, Worms, Dialers, Adware, Keyloggers and Rootkits

the FREE-version doesn´t have realtime-protection.

If MRG's tests are to be trusted then a-squared is very good.

a2 is a well known A/V-program, although a lot of people have never heard of it.

take a good look at Emsisoft´s website, a2 has received a lot of awards in A/V & A/M-tests.

Dinesh: a2-FULL works very well together with other A/V´s, it has been designed to run with others.
