I am using Windows XP operating system with 512 MB of RAM on my computer and after installing ProDot Antivirus my system performing slowly, what should I do?

512 MB RAM is not recommended requirement for installing ProDot Maximum Security or ProDot antivirus. Still you can install antivirus with 512 MB RAM but for efficient results you have to remove unwanted programs and services first which consumes RAM. Secondly, it would be great if you can increase RAM capacity for your system up to 1GB or more.
