Remeber AV`s that have an "ultra light footprint" / "ultra low memory usage" or whatever they call it normally don`t hold the signatures mostly in memory, they store them on the hard drive meaning lots of I/O operations. We all know accessing from memory is faster than from the hard drive so the 'lightest' isn`t allways the one that uses the least memory!
I`m pretty sure ESET 6 and Kaspersky (both of which are quite light) have quite high memory usage but that`s because they holds sigs in memory (if available), what`s the point in having plenty of memory if it`s not being used

Put simply memory usage is only a small part of the equation..

Has anyone ever came across an AV ad that DIDN"T claim to be "ultra light weight," and something similar to " It also has an extremely small memory footprint, so you can actually do other things while it is running on your computer"

Might have to give this one a try. Haven't ever tested it before and currently running without an AV, which is no big thing, as I usually do anyway.
