F-Secure Greedy?

Threaded View


Has anyone had issues with this AV gobbling up resources in task
manager and causing disk thrashing? I have investigated causes of disk
thrashing and viewed Task Manager and can only see F-Secure as the
suspect?
Its a XP SP3 Dell Dimension 5000, 512 RAM

512MB is very little RAM.
That's your problem.  RAM is cheap Today.  Buy it.

I have the same issue previously with Kaspersky internet security
version 2009. that one PC that have only 256 of RAM was so slow ...
That when I added another chip to make it 512, it improved
dramatically the performance of the PC...
Then lately with the latest Kaspersky version 2010, 512 Mb is
insufficient that I had to upgrade it to 1 Gb .
It might be the same reason with F secure.....?
But there are still AVs that are not resource hungry... such as the
NOD32.
..they seems to work well  in older PCs with less RAM  capacity?

256MB is the minimum just to RUN the WinXP OS w/o any software.

I've had computers come in from when XP was new that only had 128Mb. Up
until lately, I've always tried to make sure they had 512Mb. Now I'm
stepping some of them up to a gig. I've always figured it was all the
Windows Service Packs and updates that were causing an increased drain or
resources. And of course every time you update an application (like Quicken
or Photoshop) they always get complicateder. Most every computer I get in
has an expired antivirus so I just uninstall it and put in a free one
(usually Avira). The ones that have had Norton were really being sapped
until I got it uninstalled.

Theoritically yes but practically
well  I can run a number of softwares in an old PC with just 256 mb of
RAM including video players, office tools, even some minor
games....... I counted about 20 installed softwares in that particular
PC...including the NOD32...
I tested Kaspersky  Avira premium, Bitdefender, AVG and it drastically
slowed down the PC but not with NOD32....
