Windows 7 Essentials
Posted 04 December 2009 - 10:25 AM
Bought a new laptop today with Windows 7. I've just installed the lastest windows updates. I'm looking for advice as to what free programs are recommended to keep my computer safe.
I've had Windows XP before and had AVG, SpywareBlaster, Spybot all installed. This new laptop comes installed with McAfee virus software. Is it recommended to d/l the same programs for Windows 7 as XP? Should I use the McAfee until its runs out or is it better to just go with AVG? And also are there any other security options I should tweak?
Which web browser would you recommend? Sorry for all the questions, not so good with the most recent technology lol but any help is apprecaited.

After that i recommend that you use ESET NOD32.

Well you can install all of them and see which one you prefer. but with FF and the NoScript extension, you are at least moderately fireproof
i installed FF with the NoScript add on but it makes me ok every page that i visit which is a bit long..is there anyway of making it less sensitive but still effective?
