You might want to have a look at Microsoft Security Essentials. It's free, and built for 7.

Hmmm....i don't thing these is good. I need some antivirus to install and to work good!
Different strokes for different folks, but I have MSE on 5 PC's here (3 of wich are operated by teenagers), and so far I haven't had any issues. It is an installed scanner (not one of those internet based tools), if that makes any difference. It's Microsoft's replacement to Live OneCare.

Update - oops, didn't see the Macedonia thing, sorry.

FWIW - I've had some issues with AVG and Steam in the past - that was the main reason I switched to MSE.
