    Why would you want to be able to schedule a scan? The app gives real-time, continuous protection.

    It looks very good! But is it any lightweight? I’m currently using Bitdefender Free and it’s very lightweight on my Surface Pro 3. If Tencent is just as lightweight, then I’m considering switching.

    It doesn’t even want to install. Whatever location I choose, it says that it can’t be installed there :/
