    free antivirus for w7

    Great point
    We need a compiled list of all the completely- compatible free anti-virus/firewall programs that currently work with W7 without having to use Vista compatibility mode.
    That will at least, give all of us a base to build on as to what AV app currently works with W7 with no special install/run requirements.:)
    The key word here is free.
    Someone with just a little time please review this forum and post a list of the freecompatible AV's available. Remember, free only.
    We can discuss paid AV apps after final release of W7...agreed???

    avg free, free download, one of the best i have ever used for windows, period works flawlessly with my build of windows 7 and i did not have to change it for vista compatability, after install just run as admin, thats it

    I'm using Avast also. A little tidbit though it's probably known. Windows 7 doesn't support Norton products older than 2006 or version 7, 8, 9, or 10. Hopefully that gets fixed.

    I usually run version 6 of Norton and it will run but the auto protect won't work and you have to run it as an administrator to download updates.

    Yes, that would be malware, but Vipre is from Sunbelt.

    AVG uses a lot of resources and slows down your rig...
