Can anyone suggest a solution? I am thinking of changing my anti virus because panda hogs all my resources and locks my pc up. I have a 1100mhz duron and 512ram. Do I change my av or upgrade my system? Thanks in advance for any advice given.

Here's a couple of good, free, anti-viruses, if you decide to go that route:

I have been using AVG for a few years and its been consistenly good. Things were a little wobbly when they went from ver 6 to ver 7 but its good now. The email scanner portion is a little slow for my liking but other than that its great. AVG is a standalone anti-virus with email scanning but does not include a firewall.

No need to upgrade your system to fit an AV program. That would be like buying a car cause you ran out of gas. :thumbsup:
