    He's not the first.. there have been quite a few complain about AVG in Windows 7... I too have noticed it's increase in resource usage and it's lack of stability in Windows 7.. ;) I'm using NOD32 on 3 of my 5 pc's and Avast (paid version) on the other two and so far so good, no problems at all.. :)

    Using "Avast! Home Edition 4.8" as resident AV/AS protection, "Comodo Internet Security Firewall 3.9" (with Defense+) as firewall/HIPS and "A-squared Free 4.5" as backup on-demand AV/AS scanner.

    All three working great in my Windows 7 RC x64 ;)

    well i haven't had a moments trouble out of my avg internet security. i mean nothing! although i have to admit that i am curious... if nod32 or avast is really that good, why do you have the other one? and if you had to pick, which one is the best?
    i also would be curious to know, what it is that you think they can do any better than avg? always looking to pick up more information.

    I'm using AVG on a couple of my older rigs simply for testing purposes.. ;) If I had to pick between NOD32 and Avast I'd go with NOD32.. Both are good but I think NOD32 comes out on top in the end.. :) It seems to be a bit more streamlined then Avast and also seems to use fewer resources... (though neither of the two seem to use as many resources as AVG Free does...) ;)

    i'm currently installing pc tools internet security because i've got a free 1-year license from them! it is not cr*cked of keygenerated. i have to check it out first if it's running perfectly on win7.

    The problem is AVG 7.5 worked good, where as the new AVG 8 is at least a step backwards. If Grisoft were to still support version 7.5, I for one would still be using it.

    I signed up for the McAfee Beta Testing Program and downloaded their beta suite.
    It's been treating me well so far and the price was right (free).

    I have used Free AVG and Free Avira in the past on W7. AVG has an annoying habit (probably resolved by now) of forgetting that it was supposed to update itself, and the only way I could figure out a resolution was to install it over the current installation to get the updated version.

    Avira comes with an annoying nag screen, but worked pretty well.

    This McAfee beta is (IMO) the best of the 3 products.

    Another AVAST! 4.8 Home Edition user here; just does what it says on the can :) Liked it on Vista, and still like it on Win7RC.

    Avast. On install, I uncheck all but web, network, and standard shield. Then, I make sure the services are delayed on bootup. Almost invisible impact on performance and startup, but powerful protection.
    Also, BIG fan of Avast screensaver.
