you could try

AVG 9.0 it tells you if a link is safe or not. also use malwarebytes and SpybotS&D 6.2 and try and get windows defender. in addition to firewall and automatic updates.

WIndows defender is installed already in Windows 7. Also AVG isnt the best of the freeware anti virus programs as its marked critical files as infected in the past.

Windows Defender isn't installed or activated by defult on windows 7. If is were is the system tray Icon, All programs menu Icon or Desktop Icons? AVG is better than it used to be.

Sorry but it is activated by default on win7. MSE disables it when you install it. Defender is a resident program that doesnt require a tray icon.

Umm Micro$oft must have change things then. On Windows XP and Vista it was on the system tray and anywhere else. In windows 7 to run it go Computer then C:\Progamfiles\Windows Defender\MSASCui.

I can confirm that it is indeed there and activated. Microsoft Update will update it's definition files every once in a while. If your security is sufficient, there's really no harm disabling the service with services.msc.
