    well this is for anyone that doese not know about this. if you are using windows 7 there are already anti viruses from the bigger companies made specificlly for windows 7 and they end when the beta is over. so they are free for you to use fully and legally.

    Norton 360 v3 Win7 : Anti-spyware Software - Identity Protection - Virus Remover - Free Worm Removal | Norton 360 Beta

    FOR NORTON CHECK THE MAIL U SIGNED UP WITH. THERE SHOULD BE A FREE KEY

    Kaspersky v8 Win 7 version: Windows 7

    AVG For Windows 7 : AVG Antivirus and Security Software - Welcome Windows 7 user!

    I got all of them from microsofts official website which is here: Windows 7: Security software providers

    im currently using the kaspersky windows 7 one and it works flawlessly. my other friend is going all norton and my other friend went AVG. i can confirm ive seen all 3 of them working perfectly in action. if you do not want to buy one or just want to try something new out like me and cant wait you should get one of these.

    hope this helps some people

    Edit: wow i just noticed. i have a beta windows (leaked one) i have a beta nvidea driver i got a beta anti-virus and a beta web browser as well as 2 beta games. im seriously un patient with things >.< that or i love to get free stuff :p

    Norton is only good for 15 days
    Kaspersky is 90 days
    AVG as long as you want it

    Anyone notice Kaspersky v8 Win 7 version makes the Program Files folder "read only" ?

    This is on x86 Win7

    No big deal as I am reinstall and move to x64 but wondering if anyone else noticed that or if some setting could be changed.

    I am using the normal version of AVG that I use in Vista. It works perfectly in Win 7.

    AVG Expires

    AVG is expiring. I loaded late January and now I'm getting pop-ups every 4 hours or so stating I have 6 days left to purchase.
    It's been seamless and works fine. Lot's of downloads/install suggest turning off firewall/anti-virus during install but I was unable to find, just cannot find any way to turn it off. All the installs went fine anyway. I'll try one of the other freebees next.

    All three of those are horrible. There's only one good and FREE antivirus and that's Avast. Sorry to sound like a troll, but just stating my opinion.

    Unfortunately they are no big deal. They all have expiry dates and can be obtained from the sites periodically.

    Do you have mapped network drive ?
    I doubt it since most people that do will get BSOD with that AVG version and other non w7 virus scans

    I was also surprised that Avast continues to work perfectly with Windows 7 64 bit.

    At least...it seems to work perfectly. I sure hope that's right! :)

    Ok. As far as Anti-virus is concerned, Avast is hands down the best of all free ones. It is better than Norton by far. Kaspersky caused viruses on my friends' PCs.

    Avast is never time restricted and always free. It works on 64bit and 32 bit and is completely compatible with every Windows OS. i installed it straight away. Go to avast! - Download antivirus software for spyware and virus protection and go for the free home edition. Register for a free key which lasts a year. Then you just apply for a renewed licence the following year, still completely free. You can do at-boot scans with avast as well, which really does help.
