Almost like having a new machine

We recently upgraded our anti-virus software to the latest 2010 release and it was immediately noticeable how much slower our machines were, especially our heavily used CSE machine. We also found the desktops to be much slower, and so the new release was de-installed and the older (2009) release re-installed. It still took up to 25% of the CPU though, and so we decided to try some alternatives. After a bit of research, we selected one of the other leading products to trial. Both desktops and the CSE run much faster and it is like having a new machine and so the upgrade can be delayed for a while!
