    I am with BitDefender Total Security 2010, UAC is on. No problems at all, it doesn't slow my computer and although costly I have complete piece of mind. Before I was using Windows Live One Care as having Vista at the time. Since it's not supported in Windows 7 I decided on BitDefender.
    BTW strongly recommend this product, it's considered to be the best on the market. :)
    Windows Live Onecare is dead. Its been replaced by the free Microsoft Security Essentials.

    I am just a bit concerned when it comes to "free" products especially antivirus software. There is a reason why one thing is free and other is paid for, but this is a personal choice.

    Some are free for personal use because they either lack a few extra features plus it's great advertising for companies considering purchasing the 'full' versions.

    Word of mouth goes a long way.

    As for MSE, MS have a reputation to uphold/improve. Good rep = $$$ from Large scale companies.

    Having a viable and free A/V that competes with top end 3rd party products, adds to the pros/cons when companies contemplate purchasing / upgrading MS products.

    Personally I use Microsoft Security Essentials - it has everything I need and is really simple to install. Best of all it's free and from MS. So you know there is reputation on the line.

    If you want to see a screen by screen feature set of Security Essentials try: Screen-by-screen Exploration of Microsoft Security Essentials on Windows 7

    The installation step by step info can be found here: Installing Microsoft Security Essentials on Windows 7

    I was wondering... What kind of security setup does people here use?

    I, myself, only have Avira free installed, since my usual firewall of choice - online armor - isn't yet compatible with win 7.

    MSE + Mbam (real time protection)
    S&D (browser immunization, teatimer not used, on-demand scan rarely used)
    Hitman pro (my on-demand scanner)
    Windows firewall with windows 7 firewall control (firewall)

    additional security software:
    Sandboxie

    Prevention really is better than cure when it comes to malwares.

    Regular System Image and regular back ups is always recommended.

    Ciao!
