Trend Micro PC-cillin Vs. Norton. PC hoggers?


Active Member
Just wondering which of these programs hog the least system resources: Trend Micro PC-cillin vs. Norton vs. McAfee.
I want to use their anti-virus, anti-spyware, maybe firewall, maybe network manager but not norton GoBack, Ghost etc.
:lease: some of these can apparently slow down your computer just as much as a virus:eek:.
Almost forgot we're talking about Windows XP. No jokes about XP hogging more resources than most viruses:D.

It's free and leaves your processor to do its' job.
The three you mentioned were good in their day, but outdated now.

Thanks pjclark1 but I really want an 'all-in-one' option.
I'm currently using Blueyonder's PCguard, but it treating virus's and spyware seperately really puts me off it, especially when I'm running a full system scan, they can't both be scanned for at the same time which is useless for 'I'll have it scanning when I'm :boring:.
Does anybody use PCcillin? I only saw it at 3 places online.

Sorry Mods just realised this is in the hardware section, I ment to put it in the software section.
