Everybody needs an anti-virus for their OS. These days, Anti-virus companies come up with Internet Security, Total Protection and Anti-Virus options.. If you’re like a Home user like me, better stick with Anti-Virus option and use the Spyware Search & Destroy, MalwareBytes Anti Malware with it. (This is from my experience). I tried BitDefender Internet Security and wow!! it slowed down my PC. So better stick with minimal options..Ok coming to Windows 7 Anti-Virus options. The Microsoft web page says that these are the following Anti-Virus that Windows 7 RC(released on May 5th, 2009) supports.
I don’t know whether they all really work. I installed Kasperky AV 22.214.171.1246 version and it really works. The update feature is also working. Also I’m able to use the latest versions of Spyware Search & Destroy, MalwareBytes Anti Malware.
