It seemed to me to be a qualifier followed by your observation on
resource usage, but the subsequent comments that followed were just
attitude hardening gratuitous sarcasm from some ego heavy sorts. Now if
you can toughen up your system to match, you'll be fine.

Ed:

I mean no offense but you yourself indicated you knew nothing of the product and
then you
commented on the retail version.
The discussion was on the Enterprise version on a server, not retail software on
a home
PC.

It's attitudes like this that ruin this newsgroup. Clearly, he does
have experience of using the retail version of the product although
modesty forbids him from proclaiming himself to be the world's leading
expert in the field and this user experience is very relevant.

If part of the thread subsequently goes off on a tangent about the
differences between the retail version and the enterprise version then
so what? It happens on loads of threads and it's all on topic stuff
which is more than can be said about a lot of the stuff posted here.
It gets very boring reading about rot1 transforms after leythos has
explained it for the umpteenth time.

Re: Which runs faster AVG or MacAfee?



They all run at the same speed depending on your system.

Generally, when something seems to take longer it is because it is doing
more (or being less efficient at doing the same amount). You have to
decide where to draw the line between how much gets done at what cost.

Speed isn't your real issue here, it is efficiency. My guess is that AVG
is slightly less capable than McAfee but the computing cost is higher
with McAfee.

Are you trying to protect the server, or just filter out stored (served)
malware?
