Yup. Tried to install Trend Micro and it just wrecked my RC install completely. Too bad since I really liked it....

Windows 7 compatible Antivirus

I am using eset on all my pc my desktop using window 7 my laptop using win xp never had any problems ever surfing or P2P sites actualy it catches virus before down load is complete automaticly deletes all yes you must set it up in the set up section but I will recomend this over AVG pro CA security suite and NORTON 360 all wich slowed my pc to a crawl avast ws fair but even the pro version missed a lot as for the free programs dont you wonder why they are free you get what you pay for some things in life are not free

2. I have NO PROBLEMs with ESET SS 4.0.437, Nada, 100% works FINE. Sharing and what ever I do... Sorry.

The pretext of the Original Thread was AV ... and NOD 32 is part of ESET SS.
Only problem I ever had with ESET was I was too stupid to change the firewall back to auto when I first configured it. The pop up had to tell me<g>

Please, use norton 2010.
Norton 2005-2008 had a horrible detection rate and clogged down your system, but 2009-2010 is awesome, amazing detection rate and doesnt slow down your computer at ALL!
I cannot agree more with that! I have self been using Symantec Endpoint protection for some time (hasnt been a resource hog on its own, removes all severe virusses) and has been doing some great work. I recently installed the full version of NIS 2010 and it feels as light as air, although subjectively just a tiny bit lighter than Symantec Endpoint Protection. There is no system slowdown like I have experienced myself with the latest Zonealarms, NOD 32, ESET F-Secure or any norton 2004-2008 version.

I use Avira Antivir Personal (Free) - no difference between it on Vista 32-bit and Win7 64-bit, everything is smooth, fast and problem-free.

And on top of that, Windows firewall and Spybot S&D (if only for the notification that something wants to edit registry).

With the RTM out in a couple of days for everyone worldwide, now is a good time to review the recommendations in here - and to post your own alternatives.
