Dear Readers.
I have just downloaded Windows 7 Beta.
Does anybody have experience of anti virus programs that are compatible with Windows 7
i would hate to go onto the Internet unprotected.
Thanks and regards

Thanks james
Comodo would be my first choice as i already have it installed on my number 1 computer.
I have also looked on the Comodo Forum.
I don't quite understand "Install in Vista compatibility mode" means.
Perhaps you know?

Hi Philip,

I am not sure about 7, but if you download the program and right click the installer I would expect you to be offered that as an option.

We are expecting the final release of the current beta next week, so I would suggest you go for the present beta which seems to be stable and then uninstall that and install the final when it arrives. You need to be a registered member of the Comodo forum to see the beta section of CIS. There you will find the beta download link.

I am a keen reader of all the postings on the Comodo Forum.
It appears that using the Vista facility is all together hit and miss.
i would rather wait until there is a dedicated program for Windows 7
Thanks for your trouble.

Could be a while I guess, many are only recently running on vista and that has been with us for some time. Presumably Windows 7 has a decent firewall which should protect you for now.

I am about to find out about Windows 7 Firewall.
Microsoft's attitude towards security has been appalling so i am not hopeful in that regard.
As a matter of interest i have been to all the websites for which i have either software or hardware and looked for Windows 7 updates or driver updates
There was only one who had any mention for Windows 7 and that was Nvidia and that was available from Windows Update .
Someone needs to get their finger out
