    I've spent a couple weeks trying out different anti-virus programs and I didn't like any of them, or they slowed my PC down too much. I have never heard of F-secure Anti-virus before. I was wondering if current users could tell me how they like it?

    I know that is uses Bitdefender's database (I would be using BD if it didn't stall out my PC so hard).

    I'm wondering how much memory, on average, the program uses and how light the program is?

    about 4-5 years ago i bought 3 licenses of "F-secure internet security" for my machines. The software had a good detection rate and had also a very low usage of recources. F-secure has no separate firewall: you must use the windows firewall. Below is a screenshot of F-secure processes on my gaming laptop (i7, GTX860M, 8GB RAM, SSD).

    Do all show as separate in task manager?
    Hm, this is odd. I'm trying out Kaspersky antivirus and it only has 2 processes running and uses 70MB.
