    I want an Antivirus OR Internet Securitry, etc for Laptop (Sony Vaio SR-46GD) having good configuration:
    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.5 GHhz, 4GB RAM, 512MB GPU, 250GB HDD

    NOTE:
    1: Antivirus SHOULD BE DISABLED at Startup.
    I WILL ENABLE IT ONLY WHEN USING INTERNET.

    2: I am a LOT CONCERENED about battery backup.
    Battery Life is usually 4 hours, but it SHOULD remain same after
    installing(using) Antivirus.
    So, Antivirus should have NO IMPACT on Battery.

    wat about KIS2009???

    Disable KIS itself / Disable it from running @ startup

    Enable it when manually when u'll b using internet.

    Set scan feature "Dont scan if running on battery"

    Well.........both ths features r supported by all antivirus(as far i knw)

    KIS is gud........but u can go for ny other if u dnt like KIS personally.....

    If I set Avast Service from Automatic to MANUAL in Servicers.msc,
    Then delete it from StartUp via MsConfig.
    Then it will not run at StartUp,

    But here is another problem, whenever I have to Start Avast AntiVirus, I cannot click on START > Avast > Avast! AntiVirus, because it woun't start.
    I have to go to Services.msc Then START the Service, then Start the Avast! Antivirus.
    THIS IS A PROBLEM HERE.
