What pc protection software uses the least resources ?

I’ve owned McAfee and Norton in the past, I’m currently running Virgin media PC Guard. I find they all slow my (old and already slow) laptop down. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hi,
    all virus scanners/protection slow you down. However, I found something that will take care of your system, your entire system, including spyware, registry, disk, resources and all that helped me tremendously. I have the pro version of Advanced Systems Care and I am leaving you the link on how to get it and you will also find a FREE and LEGAL registration for the Pro Version for 180 days. Just try that out, please.

    You will need a firewall though since I don’t think the Windows firewall is sufficient. I have chosen the Zone Alarm firewall. You can get that by googling “Zone Alarm Free Firewall”.

    Also, I have the AVG antivirus. You can also get that for free. It does not use up a lot of resources.

    I hope so much that this may help you.

    ok it is based on ur pc features,if u have a ram more than 1GB i advise u with “kaspersky Internet-Security 2009”.
    or if ur ram less than 1GB i think AVG would be better.

    viel glück………good luck

    I don’t believe that these protection packages have anything to do with how slow your computer is running other than when they are running unless you have a really fast computer they all will slow things down a bit. My friend I believe its your computer or what you have on it.

    I had the same problems with all my pcs lagging because of those programs and noticed an advanced improvement in performance wheninstalledled, (which i payed for!) and downloaded and installed the free versions, AVG aZone alarmsrms which i have experienced using both, which were much better at not using up all PC recources .
    .It was until I iunobtrusived payed for) nod 32 by esset..Its very powerful light, unobstrusive and very secure..
