Having tried several - find that they all gobble up RAM. Will stick with Sophos. Its the devil I know tho' I didn't find MacAfee to be particularly bad, speed wise.

Have tried ClamXav in the past but found it missed one virus/trojan deliberately installed so will stick with what I know works. Avast in my case found some 5400 suspect files, mainly Mac Apple files so it obviously is prone to giving false positives.

Use what you find works for you.

Yeah, I agree, after trying them all, Sophos does seem to work well, and does appear to be the least of a system hog.
