Now that my laptop is back up and running I need to find an antivirus that uses as little space as possible. I installed Norton Internet Security 2001, yes 2001 but it takes up a lot of space. What I have is a 3gig hard drive and 32mb ram. All I really want the lap for is to download pictures from my camera when I away and check for e-mails every now and then. Is there something out there thats small and I would be reasonably comfortable knowing Im not going to get fried with a virus? Daniel

I would have to reccomend PC-Cillin.Its been pretty reliable for me and takes up around 220 megs.It doesnt suck up all your memory either,even on a system that small i doubt you will notice any loss of performance.

AVG would be less intrusive but the best, in my opinion, is Panda.
