Antivirus and Antispyware for Windows 7


If you've ever installed Windows 7 Beta, which would see the message in important states of the Action Center is located in the system tray is one of them is a request for Search and Antivirus Programs. From this it can be captured that Microsoft itself considers that the system was not yet safe for him if unaccompanied by other programs to ward off viruses and malware. As with Windows Vista, security program that is included in Windows 7 Beta only the Windows Defender antispyware.

If you see Microsoft's list of Antivirus programs are compatible with the Windows 7 Beta, there were three Antivirus programs that go as follows:

* Symantec Norton 360 provides 3.0 Beta
* AVG that offers AVG Internet Security and AVG Anti-Virus which is both commercial AVG products
* Kaspersky that provides technical preview of Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows 7.

Is it really that limited? Then I tried to install and run AVG 8 Free Edition and Avira Antivir Personal is free of use, and found the installation process or when traveling, no problems arise. Action Center on Windows 7 itself well to read the presence of both antivirus status if it includes real-time protection is off or on when needed update.
