Windows 7: Windows 7 Build 7601 This Copy of Windows is not genuine

the MSCEPP you've now got is one of the best - although I've never used it. It's designed to operate in tandem with your company's main protection.
For personal use, I use MSE which I also install on most of my clients' computers, with no problems. It may not be the best, but it has/causes less problems than almost any other, and needs less user input (and no money!).
AVOID Norton, McAfee (Symantec pro stuff is pretty good, but can have problems - McAfee Pro stuff likewise).
AVG has got bloated over the past few years.
Avast is one of the better ones.

In all cases, avoid the full 'Suite' type products - The Windows Firewall is good enough for 99.9% of people, and most of the rest of a suite apart from the actual AV/AM software is bloat or window-dressing (or in the case of the 'registry cleaners' positively dangerous).

Windows 7 Professional Build 7601

It turns out that program MSCEPP was installed by the IT department.

Their license ran out on Symantec and so they switched to that. A computer guy just came by to delete Symantec

I guess that's a good decision.
