    Default best virus protection with ZA freeware ?

    I downgraded to ZA freeware 7 - this seems to be the current version - on my laptap and now look for a good antivirus. I tried AVG, but this seems to be a memory hog. I have 2GB PCU onboard but the task manager shows that it's AVG that largely occupies the CPU and stops me from working.

    Any other effective prog that uses less CPU & that is free ?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    Avira has a freeware version called Avira Antivir Personal. Very good detections (number one at this moment), very light on the system and is basically a straight forward antivirus with no bloat or un-needed added on junk.
    Just the real goods.
    Maybe 15,000 k mem is used at the computer idle time.

    If the "buy me" nag screen bothers you too much at the updating times, then google "avnotify.exe disable" and follow the instructions.
