Windows 7: Microsoft to release free security software soon

21 Sep 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Mint 9

I have been using it for months now, and have not had ONE virus problem.

It is also very quiet, and gently reminds you when its time to scan/update and allows you to minimize it to the tray. I love it.

I wondering how that will turn out in the long run since the latest two builds of the AVG free editions include an IE security that automatically flags any site trying to put something like a trojan on the system! I simply no longer get any bugs when happening across any of those sites as well as the increased security seen in IE 8 itself.

Some time back before Vista came XP and IE 6 was nothing but a trojan circus where anything could get through that and you had to allow other protections to take up the slack there!

Sadly for you it seems Avast let you down quite a bit where the new MSE picked up that slack! That would be expected to see some updated malware code detection from the start there.
