Hello,
I have bought a new computer, with Windows 7 Home. I am confused, it says we have anti spyware included with Windows Defender, but do I need an anti virus like Norton or Macaffee as well. Can you tell me the difference and advise please?

Like I said on the other thread where you posted this question you just need to get Microsoft Security Essentials. Its fast, free and it works. That will take care of your AV needs.

Microsoft Security Essentials is a solid choice. Avast is another great option. They offer live protection, real time updates, and are light on resources.

think outside the box....
sometimes getting away from all 'MS' isn't such a bad idea..

If it works, it works. MSE and Avast are great options.

After using AVG Free and Trend Micro for a while, I was more than happy to run back to MS in this case. MSE is the most lightweight, user friendly, trouble-free AV I have ever used.

At work i used AVG and AVast.. and in time grew to hate them both, to many adds, slow and hogd a lot of resources i found, with realy crap interfaces. At home on the main gaming and work pc's i use Kaspersky security suite.. and love it... but thats a whole debate in its own.

On my netbook how ever, I wouldnt mind something "lighter" and more backgroundy so may check the MS mentiond one out.
