AVG isn't free. There's no free edition, just the retail versions. and it doesn't make a lot of sense to buy anti-virus for a beta.

Greeting everyone,
Just discovered this forum and glad to see how active it is and looks like a lot of really good info for all of us experimenting with W7.
Now onto the subject.
PC Tools Anti Virus free edition seems to be working.
Yes, not the best but since we are running W7 Beta anything is better than nothing.
NOD32 looks promising but seems to be a resource hog.
Tried Comodo and it didn't play nice. I will give it another go.
just my two cents worth.
Anyone else with different working Anti-Virus programs other than what has been covered?

From what I have read over that past week or so,....yes...Avast seems to be to most stable of the free anti-virus programs available for W7. AVG comes in second but there seems to be more complaints about AVG.
Since we are just using a Beta release of W7 there is really no need to buy a AV program at this point.
Anyone try PC Tools anti-virus yet? Seems to be stable and it is free.
Here is the link PC Tools AntiVirus - Free Anti-Virus Download
