I would not trust AVG for one bit. In my computer club we got 6 systems (all triple booted) heavily infected depite AVG being installed. Took 3 guys 1 week to fix that mess. And you may want to check on all the threads that state the problems with AVG. But it is your system and you can, of course, use what you think is best.

I have no personal experience with ZoneAlarm, but apparently there were problems too.

Regarding " pros in the industry " - I have been around computers for 52 years, and I know what some of those look like.

I was jesting...

But seriously. AVG has had many issues with Windows 7. This was made worse by a recent update that made some Windows 7 systems inoperable.

Get rid until it's sorted its game out..

More than 1 anti-virus app. on any system is a fundamental NO-NO!

I just delivered a new 2-hard drive system to a customer.
System had been working perfectly, both drives were available.
Shortly afterward, win 7 lost one of the drives.
I find on the internet that this has been regularly occurring with Win 7 for 3 years.
A suggestion for your antivirus app is Vexira from Centralcommand.com.
