Windows 7: Antivirus Software

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit
 
 

I installed MSE in my virtual machine tonight. No problems at all. It did take 45 minutes to update it's virus definitions on a DSL connection. I watched tv until it was finished.

It's nice finally shutting up that windows xp security nag screen. That thing never gives up.

I also use Microsoft Security Essentials in XP Mode because I have used all my KIS 2011 licenses up duel booting my 2 computers. It works very well on my machine & so far no nasties (fingers crossed) have slipped by.

I installed MSE based upon the expert recommendations of my fellow knowledgeable seven forums members some of which have lifetime experience dealing with computers.
