Anti everything for Windows 7 beta

After you complete the installation of Windows 7, you will notice you get the warning that a security product such as a antivirus is not present. Well, until Morro is official anyway. You will need to grab hold of a 3rd party antivirus for now and there is 3 official selection as of now:

1. AVG

You have 2 choices. Both the Antivirus and the Security Suite (which includes the firewall). Both these products are Retail and Final.

2. Norton 360 V3.0 Beta

This is a new Beta which Symantec claims works with Windows 7. I had terrible experience with their product (V2.0) and even more when they beta it in Windows Vista. I passed on this. How about you?

3. Kaspersky Antivirus

Kaspersky has a high accuracy, but can be a bit noisy in the responses required. Security wise, I never had a doubt its one of the best. But it may not be for everyone. Still, they are one of the first again to office Windows 7 support. Although it did not mentioned specificly, I believe the full Security Suite is compatible with Windows 7.

I'm running VIPRE Enterprise from Sunbelt Software on Windows 7 x64. They also have a stand-alone version that might work. Neither version is officially supported, of course.
