Hello,exterminator20 said:I use KIS 2013 and the only impact I notice on my system is the boot time which I can live with for the protection.Just because you have a quad core doesnt mean that its going to run anything better.The amount of ram,other programs and software you have installed and running in the background have an impact also.
I dont know why your getting 100MB from KIS on idle or 500MB during a scan with 100% CPU.Right now KIS on my system is less than 10MB idle and running a scan about 36MB.I have task manager running,Chrome running and performing a scan with KIS and my CPU is less than 35% CPU and less than 30% memory.
You can argue back and forth for eternity and still not have an answer that everyone agrees on.Sure there are some that arent very good and you probably should take a pass on but those arent any of the big players in the Security software business
Basically if it runs well on your system and it keeps you malware/virus free and you are comfortable using it ,then thats what you should be using!
I would love to use KIS. But it just uses way to much resources. I got those results when I installed KIS on my new Windows 8 laptop. It's only a dual core but it has 4GB. So it has plenty of RAM for KIS to eat. And it sure did eat it up! I'm quite fine with avast! or COMODO. Both are excellent. Don't get me wrong, KIS is too. It just uses to much resources on my system.
