- AV for low spec laptop?

I have a low spec laptop (64 MB ram, 300 MHz processor, 4 GB drive).
Please could you recommend a suitable AV prodcut? I'm prepared to pay, so
don't limit your answers to freeware only.
At the moment I'm using AVG, but it seems quite resource heavy. For this
machine I could turn off some of the settings; I don't need the email
checking on this machine, I oculd turn off some of the auto file checking
stuff, (I guess, I wouldn't like to).
I'm running Windows 2000, Firefox (latest issue) and ZoneAlarm (free
edition.) This machine gets used for a bit of online blogging, some
usenetting (including a small amount of binary downloading) and some
Thanks for any advice.

The desktop computer I had four years ago was very similar to your
laptop (it had a Celeron 333 Mhz CPU, 64 MB RAM, and even a 4 GB
HD!). I tried many AVs, and was very happy to discover NOD32, as it
ran pretty much transparently on even that machine. Even now, with a
much more powerful machine, I wouldn't think of using a different AV,
as NOD32 has proven itself to be great in every respect!
