Windows 7: Windows 7 compatible Antivirus

21 Dec 2008   #31

Windows 7 x64 Build 6801
Antivirus that works!

Avira AntiVir personal edition is working 100%

Maybe there is a small issue with the guard service, but I don't know.

ESET NoD32 no worky...

Or BitDefender

Windows 10 Pro X64 Insider Preview (Skip Ahead) latest build

I am using Avast here as even the latest release of SEP does no work on W7 - it installs, acts like it is installing, and on reboot - it's completely not there.

I could get Avast installed (v4.8.1282 and updated) but I kept getting BSOD with irql_not_less_or_equal on tdx.sys. Uninstalling avast cleared it up so I must assume all is not quite perfect with how they play with (I assume at this point) the network driver.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Yeah, it works fine now for me, but at first the action center kept saying I had to update avast and it was all up to date. Had to do a repair install to make it go away.

Windows 7 RC

My combo: avast + spybot s/d. Seems to cover all the evilware bases. I also had trouble with the action center complaining about avast not being updated, a couple of reboots later, smooth sailing

I'm going to fly without a 'puter condom for a bit. I tried both Kaspersky AV, and avast both with similar issues. Were I a betting man I would suspect the drivers for networking on my Dell nforce4 motherboard board were a bit sensitive to intrusion. :)

I always win at playing "Spot the Virus"
I agree, I took out Windows Live OneCare as it wasn't doing anything for me anyways. The firewall has been disabled since .. well, forever and I've never had an issue. Perhaps if you go to malicious websites then you have a problem, but I'm careful . Also "Spot the Virus" is fun :P

Apparently, you're forgetting about malicious drive-bys through banner advertising on *non-malicious* sites....
