Hello Everyone,

I am new to Windows 7 and I'm trying to find out which types of security software I should have on my computer. I currently have windows security essentials but I've also hear combofix is a good thing to have as well. Are there any compatability issues between the two?

I am not very tech savvy so any good input is appreciated. Thank you.

Windows Security Essentials is quite adequate. In addition, running two security AV/AS programs is a bad idea as they can interfere with each other. There are many bogus, fraudulent, and useless security programs on the market today. Save your money and stick with the Security Essentials. It works.

Just to clarify its Microsoft Security Essentials: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
