The reason why HMPA is so light, is because it isn't even a full AV. Out of AVG and F-Secure i personally would pick F-Secure, but its up to you to decide which one runs smoother on your system.I experience higher system impact with Windows Defender compared to F-Secure SAFE.
The lightest program I've ever used was HMPA. I know it is "just" a full-exploit stuff and MT members prefer something else but I liked it very much combined with OSA (old OSA, completely free).
The highest system impact I've ever experienced was with KIS.
I still have 2 years of subscription of AVG Total but it is not lighter than F-secure SAFE or HMPA
Even if we use the same OS systems are different and system impact depends on lot of things, so there is no universal solution that works for everyone. Testing is the only way to find out if something works or not. Even if I believe KIS is fantastic I can't use it because of my system.
What I have is AVG Total 2years of sub and F-secure SAFE 6 months of sub.
