Very heavy mobile AV

Created: 20 Apr 2009 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 7 comments

In our tests on the mobile AV, we find that the software takes 6-7 Mb of phone memory while most phones have phone memory  of 30 mb or so. Isnt this a big downside of one app using sucha  high chunk of phone memory. Can the AV not have a lighter foot print

ur phone will ask the question ""wher to install ???"

then u can select  "memoy card " instead of  "phne memory"

it will surely work...

The Antivirus Should Be so large except that How it can Store So much of Visrus defination & auto scanning Services... in mobile phone...
Better thing is to use a External Storage Devices which will eliminate The size problem...

u have memory card slot in your phone?//
so install it in that external storage so that your phone memory will remain vacant and it will even not effect your speed of phone...

Are you working with Windows Mobile or Symbian?

Windows Mobile has a trimmed down version called Symantec Mobile Antivirus.  Unlike the full Mobile Security Suite this is just Antivirus.

The best thing would be to open a support case.  This would allow a more detailed review of resource utilization.  It could then be determined if an enhancement request or defect should be filed against the product.
