Windows 7 security software?

Hello :) , soon I installed this system and then I installed successfully two security software - Mil Shield version 7.0 and Lavasoft Personal Firewall version 3.0. I tested these programs and they run without any errors.

I just want to ask you, did you test some security software compatible with Windows 7?

  1. Eventually everything will be compatible. But for now i have tried Norton security suit 2009, and nod 32 both have worked for me. Kaspersky hasnt so far as it not supported
  2. I think that many programs still don't work on Windows 7 RC. I have tested lots of programs and the result wasn't good because there was installation errors or some options of these programs didn't work in both Windows 7 (32bit and 64bit).

    Even lots of programs still give errors when one try to installed them on Vista :( but maybe this problems will be solved for Windows 7.
  3. I am currently using Windows 7 64 bit.

    I have used AVG, Avast, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and winpatrol.

    The only issue I have had is that Avast can't run the boot-time scan on a 64 bit operating system.

    I haven't encountered installation problems with any of the above software nor have I needed to run the apps in compatibility mode for XP SP3.
  4. I use AVG anti-virus and I have no problems with this program. Yesterday, I've installed Lavalys Everest and I also have no issues with it. But some programs as CCleaner has problems with their functionality, and I did stop to use this program on Windows 7.
  5. I currently use Ccleaner on Windows 7. The only problem I have is that I can't set it to run at startup as UAC prevents this.

    What problem did you find with Ccleaner RockZet?
  6. Kaspersky internet security 2010 is fully compatible with windows 7.i'm running it right now without a single glitch!i agree ccleaner is a must also!
  7. ccleaner does run on windows 7 very well!btk is right,still usefull in windows 7,
  8. I have Mil Shield and Ccleaner.

    MS is the best privacy program, it erases everything without mercy ;)
    CC is one of the best because it leaves some unworn files.

    Well, i'm now running Ccleaner on Win 7 too.It doesn't clean correctly - after cleaning there are tracks left but maybe in Vista it cleans, i don't know
  10. I know Glary Utilities is compatible with Win 7. I updated Glary Utilities to 2.16.0.758 version and it works well. :hello:

    Well, I'm running now Win7. And I noticed that it has smaller security than in Vista. Right now I have mil shield, kaspersky and avira antiVir. They work pretty well on Win7.
  12. its not smart to have 2 or more active antiviruses installed at the same time!
  13. NIS 2010 also works well. It is recommended by Microsoft, if you click on Find a security provider from the Action Center on Windows 7.
