WD with tweaks if you don't want any additional software. Kaspersky Free or Cloud Security if you don't mind
Yet another forced feature? As I understood from review text, it cannot be turned off?Kaspersky Security Cloud Free requires registration and enables remote management of connected devices automatically. Users who dislike the functionality may select Free Antivirus instead which comes without it.
Block with the firewall the avgui same at Avast the avastui and you don t see again adsWell yeah for me its working great, i choose this (AVG) because its good to play games, and it gives less ads than avast...
My computer starts (boot-time) is much faster than with BD , so for me its better.
The last 3 months i don t see bugs from Avast. With your tweaks is very lightafter tweaking with andy's tool, I felt WD even heavier than default due to extra processing in the cloud and locally
just upgraded 3 old PCs to SSDs and cleanly installed Windows 10 1803. WD slowed down everything like a turtle. I had to disable WD during installation of essential softwares and saw immediate gain in speed. Then, I installed kaspersky free with some performance tweaks, the PCs ran a lot a lot smoother
I consider kaspersky internet security and KTS with application control = heavy, though
KAV (Paid), KFA and KSCF are much lighter because they don't have application control
WD doesn't slow down much if users only browse the web, play some games and open MS office but it will definitely slow down if users run heavy tasks which are disk-intensive (copy, install new apps, export files, process data, develop heavy apps,...)
for me, the best AV which are balance between speed and protection (after all tweaks, not default) is Avast but many people don't like it due to bugs and privacy problems
in this list, I definitely choose kaspersky free because WD, BD free for me are not good enough. Tested all of them in the hub and had the results
please follow my tweaks here. You will see significant improvementAlright, KSCF used around 10-11 hours, I'm disappointed. Very likely going install BD Free back later today.
Atleast settings options were better on KSCF than on KFA 2019 version, possible to turn off those not needed shields.
I installed EU version with some extra options related to privacy and sharing information for marketing purposes and such.
Bundled with Security Connection, same as KFA those times used it, easy to unistall if you use different VPN or don't want use it.
It uses less RAM in normal use, compared to BD Free, BUT CPU usage seem to be little higher than BD Free had, and even after reboots, KSCF made fan working too hard everytime it were used :/ BD Free never made it sound this hard working way. And yeah my fans are alright, only difference is KSCF installed 10-11 hours ago, so I know.
I was little confused on certain options which mentioned some security features of Microsoft (Windows)
Does it apply to Kaspersky free? If so, I'll try it. Thanks for the tips.please follow my tweaks here. You will see significant improvement
also give it some time to settle. In a few days, it will collect caches. After that, it will be faster
it's my settings for kaspersky freeDoes it apply to Kaspersky free? If so, I'll try it. Thanks for the tips.
With your KFA Free 2019 settings, my PC is like Linux. Gaming mode really helps otherwise KFA does have a little slowdown.it's my settings for kaspersky free
for KSCF, I didn't attach the screenshot for it. If it's KSCF, I disable some unused componenets like IM antivirus and mail antivirus, use Scan "on execution" in File antivirus
the rest, I set up like what harlan posted. I try to avoid performance loss or incompatibilities as much as possible
