Answers :

Had the same problem on my old thinkpad 600e. I kept using AVG but ran "msconfig", clicked the startup tab, to see what else was running that doesn't show up in the task manager. You'd be surprised. Take a look and uncheck anything that you don't think you need to have running on startup. ITunes is a ridiculous resource hog along with all the other app's that go with it. Quicktime, Adobe and others all start up yet don't show up in the task manager as well. Perhaps you'll find avg runs fine if you do this. It worked for me.
With those specs, I think you will be hard pressed to find something that won't slow down the system. A lot of Antivirus software now a days requires more RAM than you system has just for real-time scanning.
\015\012Sunbelt Software makes a product called Vipre that is relatively new and doesn't consume a lot of RAM. Take a look at that and see if that works for you.
\015\012If that doesn't work, then I would consider trying something perimeter based like the Dlink SecureSpot device. http://dlink.com/products/?sec=1&pid=486 That isn't ideal since when you leave you network you will be unprotected, but if you leave this laptop on the same network connection all the time, then this just might work for you.
