  1. Kaspersky internet security 2012 is the winner, but consider Gdata - it is very good.

    I use Kaspersky, but I tried the Gdata and its fast and safe and easy to configure.

  2. I prefer free stuff!! :)
  3. g data says it requires atleast 1gb ram for windows 7.. so i think i will slow down my system..im having 4gb of ram..but kaspersky requires only 512mb of ram which will not slow down my system..is ram requirement slows down system..
  4. It requires, but it doesn't need it 99.9% of the time.

    Also it uses dual scan technology .
    U need to try it to really see the small foot print on the system resources.

    A virus scanner can not provide reliable protection. Two anti-virus engine complement each other and guarantee a 100 - percent detection of viruses. G Data AntiVirus provides a simultaneous test with the help of two best in the world of anti-virus engines. The unique technology of dual scanning allows thorough detection of viruses and offers the best protection.
  5. I have been using GDATA internet security for 2 years and i think it is better than both.

    Kasperesky is worst resource hog you can find. It says A then consumes B, where B>A. If you want the lightest, Avira! :)

    Hey hell_storm2004,

    It is slowing the PC, if running on Pentium4 CPU. Other than that no problem. I had C2D E6750 @2.66 till 14 days ago and it was no problem. Now on 2600K @ 4.5 no issue.
  8. I am having an overclocked E8400. The boot-up time without and SSD got increased by approx 30% with KIS installed. 2010 was good in that respect. 2011 was poor. I had a few issues for which i posted on the KIS forums. Don't remember what were the issues though! 2009 was really great and light!
  9. I used it for at least 6 years and never problem. Did u do an upgrade or new install?
