Well I am running KIS v6 and if you like interaction then this is your friend. Its got great heuristics (tested myself) and has a pretty good firewall. It notifies when it really needs to be updated and it usually has updates everyday.

The firewall has many modes. Allow All, Low-Security, Training, High, and Block all.

I am using the training setting.


Here is a list comparing the Anti-Viruses.

These are some what out of date, but do provide vital information.

I have ZoneAlarm Suite and Nod32. While Nod32 is silent and small, ZoneAlarm hogs 20% of my CPU at all times. Weirdest thing. I didn't expect that.

ok because nod32 has 2 files, a system nod32krn using about 23,000k
and then running under my name nod32kui.exe uses 2,500k

zonalarm pro also has both a system vsmon.exe using about 30,000k
and then running under my name zlclient.exe uses 2,500k

you AVP exe sound like its only the antivirus part which isn't bad did expect it to be lower then nod32 7.0

i could be wrong are you useing like windows defender to see what each app is? or another method?

beacuse there should be 2 files as stated above
