Windows 7: Which antivirus


19 Nov 2009   #1

windows 7 ultimate final Office 2007,27 Quad IMAC vm 7 64 bit
 
 
Which antivirus

I did it I strayed to a 27 inch quad core IMAC with 8 gigs of memory. I also ordered VMware fusion. I am going to try to run Apple what ever it is Snow Lepard and Windows 7 ultimate at same time. I am not a fan of norton and know nothing about what I need for the IMAC. What antivirus should I use?? Both Operating systems are going to be open at same time? I am using Avast home with windows 7 , It works, What for the Mac? Help.

By the way it is warming up at almost midnight 14 degrees and no wind.

Although, here's a good spot to start.

to both because I am going to run window7 on it. And if you got to be rude be rude. But I thought there were people out theere that would be interested in the new IMAC.

Not being rude, but seriously, ask for a Windows 7 AV recommendation by all means, but to ask about a MAC, not here mate, some people take that to offense, and my link should give you a head start.

Thank you Interesting if you look at their avitars they are using other operating systems, I am going to us a quad processor with 8 gigs of memory that happens to be wrapped in a 27 in monitor, the loudest is using a 19 inch monitor, why, sorry I do not want to upset anyone.. I just ask those who have nothing constructive to say don't say anything. Thanks the links helped.

No problem. Just remember viruses arent really a problem on macs, so just get one thats really lightweight. Ones that only deal with mac viruses are the best to get.

And beware of Windows 7 fanboys lol
