I think combined with AdGuard desktop app it’s close to perfect in terms of lightness. I nearly tried every single antivirus but Avira and ESET seem the best choice to me. Did you install all other modules e.g browser protection and privacy pal, as well?

Good setup. Thanks for enlightening. Sadly this is why I changed from 360 to FortiClient. I don't know how good F-C web filtering is, but it seems very good so far. I too miss the sandbox though. Qihoo appears to know how to write a smooth running application :)
Forticlient has fantastic web filtering capabilities! Phishing is rather good too!
