Could have had a better list. AVG should be on there, which is what I use btw.

I'm using AVG Internet Security 8.5. I like it because its user friendly but also allows you to go more advanced if you would like. The firewall is also great.

I was using Norton Gaming Edition 2009 but its not compatible with windows 7 yet (at least when I was using it back it June). Also it firewall does not stand up to AVG.

Norton gamers edition and all other Norton 2009 products work perfectly with Windows 7 after a new update.

Thanks. When I was running it it wasn't compatiable so I kinda got AVG and decided to stick with it. But Norton Gaming Edition rocks and I would have stuck with it probably had it been compatible
