Question :

I want to use anti-virus software on my Windows-based oscilloscope. Will it slow down the processing or give me faulty measurement results?

Answer :

Anti-virus software should not cause any errors in acquiring data or making measurements. The primary effect will be that operations done by the host process may take a little longer. Running anti-virus software on any PC has an effect on processing speed. You should expect a similar effect on the processor performance in the oscilloscope.
