Rival to avast! for lowest memory footprint is no more.
« on: May 19, 2010, 10:24:32 AM »
PC Tools have replaced their anemic Free Antivirus 6 with 'Antivirus Free 7.0.0.545' which is actually a limited version of Spyware Doctor.
A generally good and commendible move IMHO but also a real jump in overhead. SD's database alone is 90MB.

Which will be the idea to continue the antivirus if PC Tools belongs to Symantec... Won't it develop only Norton?
