    Default Resouce Load Kaspersky vs. Eset

    Club Guru's:



    I have been using Kaspersky Internet Securityfor a bout 3 years now and every time they update it uses up more and more resources. I Recently updated to the latest release and it is really a hog. I have read about it being a hog in the past but I think it is a bit over the top now.

    My questions is whether Eset Smart Security is much better?

    Running Windows 7 64 bit with 64 bit version of Eset Smart Security 4.

    Normal running (No scanning) but including:
    Real-time file system protection.
    Email client protection.
    Web access protection.
    Network traffic filtering.
    5,148 k Memory

    Then with Scanning: 5,560 k

    I never have had a problem with running games or editing photos in RAW format with Eset.

    It might be worth giving them a trial run to see what you think though you can download their 30 day trial from here

    Thanks. Just installed the trial. Appears to be much better than Kaspersky. I will give it thew 30 days to see if I make the switch permanently.

    While both are effective, I used to use KAV earlier but have now settled on NOD32. (I know you are asking about KIS & Eset but just thought I'd share this).

    You might also want to consider MSE It works very well, is for free and since it is from Microsoft, it is highly compatible with Windows.

    Well it has been a couple days and things appear to run faster and smoother with Eset vs. KIS2011.

    I have a pretty powerful laptop and nothing has ever slowed it down until KIS2011. Don't know if everyone will experience this but for what ever reason it really slowed my system.

    +1 anytime. Why even pay for antivirus nowadays when a free one is more than enough?
