Win7 + A Free AV

(1/3) > >>

StillTrying:
Recommend a free AV for Windoze 7 Pro.
TIA.

Messtechniker:
Use any free AV. It really doesn't matter which one.
But more importantly keep yourself/other users constantly
informed about ongoing email scams. The problem can be
between your ears. A well configured router firewall is also helpful.
There is no single cure for all.

Flenser:
I used AVG free for many years.

When AVG notified me that they were going to start collecting some info I switched. I want to make it very clear that I was very happy with their product and that they were up front about the changes in their data collection policy _before_ they changed the product.

I switch to Avira's free AV on my desktop PC and I've been using the windows defender that comes with Win7.

I've been very happy with all these AV tools.

Why not Windows Defender that comes with the OS?

It will stop receiving updates next January. Third party AV is required if you insists on continuing on Windows 7, together with strict containment plan.
