    Would you do that to your PC ? :(
    I sure wouldn't
    EDIT:
    let me clarify, the security software seems legit, but I am referring to the ASC portion when I ask if "would you do that to your PC"
    No way in hell I am bundling to install a security software, first sign your fixing to DL crapware, no two ways about it ;)

    I nearly have the BD engine installed, the first scan without it: Memory was nearly 45% my average usage is about 12% and I am rounding up
    CPU usage never exceeded 19%

    Once the BD engine and updates are installed I will run another scan and post numbers.
    Then I will tinker with it for the next 2 days and post back

    Here are the 2nd set of numbers with the BD engine,
    as you can see there was some difference but not too much,
    with the DB engine CPU goes up a bit.

    Sorry, my curiosity is out the window, with the BD engine a Full scan took over 2 1/2 hours
    and that's with my games excluded from the scan :(
    It is not as bad as I thought for a budding security software, but it still has a way to
    go before it can find a home on my system. I handed it off to my brother in-law lol

    Yeah, the full scan took a while in v4 as well.

    It only received a two star rating, which is hardly surprising. Hopefully v6 of Malware Fighter will be a better product.
