"Light and what not."
It is light and low on resources an does not have a huge file size.
There are reasons why I don't pick this antivirus for people is because of multiple issues like that of ccleaner when I go to to clean my netbook with ccleaner after a day of work I go to clean it everything is alright but when I wake up in the morning I see that Microsoft security essentials wants me to scan my computer even though I already scanned it. I know that I can just uncheck the box that has security essentials checked but I should not have to deal with security essentials interfering with me cleaning my computer. I personally like to clean my computer after a days work and to clean it from any microsoft security essentials things that got left over. Oh I also forgot to mention I got like 2 viruses from it for some odd reason :(.
I would recommend something like Avira or Avast to users who are having trouble with viruses and malware. This antivirus is complete crap back to Avira for me more faster better protection and does not interfere with me cleaning my netbook and telling me to scan every min nor day.
