Which of them is lighter in system resources? I don't care about ram usage, what's important to me is disk/cpu usage and the rest. Don't mess with effectiveness etc, the thread is only resources usage related.
I know that. The two options to be discussed here are Windows (8) Defender enabled without any other AV in real time, and Avast 8 free of course with WD disabled since WD is disabled automatically after Avast installation.
Thank you! Indeed the difference (if any) must be tiny; I 've used them both but did not make any comparison ever so I created this thread. What bothers me most is disk usage as I want my HDD to have as little usage from AV as possible. I want it to last as long as it's possible.
