Need some input. Which antivirus is least likely to cause slowdown. Panda 2015(Free) or BitDefender ?

Hey Jim ole buddy, I'm trying out some other free antiviruses and Panda and BitDefender were the 2 I should check out. Supposedly no slowdowns on 2.50 gb RAM.

Hi Claw - Best wishes for a safe and Merry Christmas to you and yours.

I was chatting with a leading security expert some time ago and was somewhat surprised to hear that his personal AV of choice was BitDefender Free. I won't name names but, coming from this chap, high recommendation indeed.

Cheers mate... Jim

Thanks Jim. I was really just experimenting with something other than Avast which I noticed cause Chrome to lag a bit. Not much, but enough to irk me So I was told to check out Panda and BitDefender Free because I'm looking for something that works with 2.50 GB of Ram. Anyway, a very Merry Christmas to you and your family on the other side of the world. Oh and Jim, you're going to see a lot more of me on DCT, it's time to get back into action.
