  • None of the corporate versions on Symantec products (NAV, SEP) are compatible yet with the RC.  Only Norton 360 v3 and NIIS 2009 have versions that support Windows 7 RC.  Much more information at the Symantec Windows 7 Beta Forum.

    If you need a free anti-virus product that will work with the RC, I recommend Avast!.

  • Hi,

    I'am now using Mcafee Beta antivirus. You can sign up for this and make use of the beta program. I also use Prevx 3.0 antimalware.
    So far these programs runs like a charm under Windows 7 rc1 x64

  • Hi,

    You recommend Avast, look at the site of www.prevx.com to see how good antivirus software really is in intercepting Rootkits, mailware,  spyware and other malicious programs.

  • I'm using Avira without problem in Windows 7.  And of course prevx would love for the other programs to look bad, because they are selling a product as well.  If you want unbiased information then it's more reasonable to check an unbiased site like maximumpc.com.
