Abstract [sv]

Hur påverkar egentligen Anti-Virus program datorns resurser? Avast, Windows defender, Eset Nod32 och Symantec är några av de stora Anti-Virus företagen som specialiserar sig på att skydda din dator genom att ta bort bland annat virus, malware och trojaner. Fyra Anti-Virus program samt tre scenarion valdes ut för att testa cpu, minne och nätverkets påverkan av de fyra Anti-Virus programmen. Varje scenario testades tre gånger tio minuter för varje Anti-Virus program. Fem minuter bestod av en baslinje där inget test utfördes och på de sista fem minuterna utfördes testerna. Resultaten varierar mellan de olika scenariona men helheten visar att skillnaden mellan Anti-Virus programmen är minimal. Testerna visade att de gratis Anti-Virus programvarorna stod sig minst lika bra som betalversionen av Symantec när det kommer till användning av datorns resurser.
