Yesterday I loaded Windows 7 onto a machine I have at home and everything seems great. I installed Avira Free edition anti virus on this computer and it works with no problems. Today I loaded Windows 7 onto my new HP notebook, it also run excellent. I downloaded and installed AVG anti-virus 8.0 free edition on this unit and all is well. Hope this helps. Greg
I tried the Norton 360 Beta, and it didn't work for me. It blocked my modem from connecting to the internet. I uninstalled it, then ran system restore, and then was able to get on the internet. So then I tried the 30 day trial of NOD 32 and that's working fine.
When I first installed Windows 7, I was able to get on the internet in just a couple of minutes with no problems. So I downloaded the Norton 360 beta, and while installing it I lost my internet connection half way thru the install. At first it looked like my modem wasn't connecting with Yahoo, and it looked like a Yahoo problem. Yahoo would not recognize my modem, so then I thought maybe it is the Norton software, as I lost my connection while installing it. So I removed N360, and still couldn't get on the internet, so then I tried a system restore and that fixed the problem.
I LOVE NOD... However, after some reading ( and I take it for what it is worth ) I installed AVAST.. Installs Perfectly, and runs perfectly. No problems at all.. I don't care for the gui ( as much as NOD ) but it works well. Give it a go..
Kaspersky is my vote --version also for W7. It's slightly more expensive than most of them but if you have a BARCLAYS online bank account (Barclays uk) you can get a FREE 1 year license.
You download the 30 day trial and then your bank account will give you the license key -- probably the only time in history and the only place in the known universe where a Bank has actually done something positive -- of course Fraud costs Banks a lot of money so perhaps this is in their interest as well to ensure customers have AV software installed.
The fact that this is developed in Russian Labs is actually quite good since a lot of the real nasty worms / viruses / trojans etc originally came from that part of the world so they've got decent first hand experience of dealing with this stuff.
