Is there such a thing as a good antivirus program for a netbook, with the netbook's inherent low cpu/ram performance? My wife just got a new Acer One, and I'm looking for the best solution that won't bring it to its knees resource wise. I use AVG Free on all our other computers, but don't know how resource intensive it is compared to others. Thanks in advance for any comments/suggestions.

i have to say if you start out with a clean instal of windows7
AND TRUST ME I'VE TESTED ALL TO THE EXTREME
and if you don't instal a anti virus program,
you may look like your not protected, but actualy win7 will autom. alert you, and ask what to do.

believe me what you don't instal you woun't get.
I download every day all software crack's (sorry ), movie's, music, etc etc
you just have to keep a well organised netbook
like for example partition for your C: drive <<<and D: for your downloads
etc........etc...................
all so make your network a public network, if you want to connect to internet
then nobody can see you while you use there router 4a while.
and what you don't see you can't hack into???
if you need any kind of software let me know i give you some links that for 100% work

Don’t get me wrong 3 great programs for a good mix, but here's a question for you. 3 diff programs running at once. Is that overkill? Would it just be easier and less resource hungry just to buy a security suite that has all 3?

Or you can get Microsoft Security Essentials and not bother with adware se, avira, or any other security program apart from a good firewall.
