possible McAfee patches for windows 7?

On my windows 7 compatability advisor it said that McAfee is not supported with the that version, but I get McAfee for free from my university and I do not want to end up paying for a virus protection program or have to use trial versions or things of that nature. Does anybody know about patches for McAfee that may make it work with 7?

I'm not up to speed with McAfee, however I do not believe patches are out yet.

You could use Microsoft Security Essentials or look here.

Personally I use Microsoft Security Essentials, it does what its suppose to do. Free, easy to use, not a resource hog.

I recommend trying it.

Hey Jew...hahhaha, welcome to the forums. If you're using Mcafee Enterprise (8.7i) you will need patch 2 for 7 support.
