Does Immunet Work Good On A Old Laptop?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm new to this forum :)

 

 

I have an old Dell Laptop with an platform x86, Windows Vista and only 202GB installed. I need to know if Immunet can give great protection and still be light on resources for my old-timer. Right now I have Kingsoft Antivirus 2012 running and it's awesome, but sadly it's been discontinued. So I was looked around and I found you guys. My new protection will consist of (if immunet is works out) Immunet as my AV and then Windows Defender for my AS, plus Unchecky and Malwarebytes Antimalware. My layered protection I guess.

 

 

Ok well I hope this is enoght info for you guys!

Hello LimboSlam, welcome to the forums. :D

 

You can find our system requirements for Immunet at the following link. Near the bottom of the page there will also be a list of known compatible anti-viruses:

Since Immunet is free there is no harm in trying it out. If you notice high CPU, make sure proper exclusions are set, and that there is no conflict between Immunet and other anti-viruses you have running along side it.

 

Please let me know if you need any further assistance,

 

Regards,

Lorne

Hi Limboslam and welcome to the forum! There have been a few instances where Immunet reported a False Positive when Defender was updating it's malware definition signatures. Because of this it is a great idea to add the Program Files folder for Defender into Immunet's "Exclusion List" in Settings just to be on the safe side. Not a bad idea to add Immunet's Program Files folder into Defender's Exception List as well. That way they should always see each other as trusted programs and you're much less likely to experience a conflict!

 

That's one nice thing about Immunet, it doesn't use up too many system resources like some other AV solutions so it should work nicely with your laptop!

 

P.S. - I also like to use the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as an additional on-demand scanning, removal tool in my anti-malware arsenal! Good idea! I helped to beta test Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit for some time too. This app helps protect you against unknown or zero-day vulnerabilities. Another layer of protection you might think of adding to your arsenal if you have the additional system resources.

 

Regards, Ritchie...
