    When I installed antivirus other than Microsoft Security Essentials, I found that my Windows 7 PC crashed a lot. It was definitely the antivirus causing the crashes since they stopped when I uninstalled them and replaced them with MSE.

  2. Stan Long

    You made some good recommendations here. Free trials are the best way to be sure the antivirus protection is effective and that the software does not slow down your computer.

  3. Bishwajeet

    Microsoft Security Essentials is the best of them and I think you can use it ,leaving aside your paid antiviruses too

  14. Brian

    Is the McAfee VirusScan Plus truly free or is it going to do a scan and then ask me to buy it before cleaning the issues? I’ve seen certain McAfee tools do that.

    Ola! Bishwajeet,
    This might be off topic, however, If you were a computer user in the late 1980s, virus infections would not have been a major concern for you. However, by the mid 1990′s virus infections had become common place and this trend has worsened with the arrival of always on broadband internet.

    Is it ok to have a 32 bit antivirus on 64 bit windows7… i have kaspersky 32 bit on my windows 7 64 bit…it detects every virus but still i want to ask is it ok ?

  17. chetankchandak

  18. Jack Bowens

    What about UnThreat? I started using it and it’s great. It’s a free antivirus, and it doesn’t slow my computer down. So far, it’s on par with antiviruses I used to pay for.
