Recommendations for Anti-virus Program with Windows 7
« on: July 15, 2019, 02:35:09 PM »
Hello All,
Another SLO Bytes member asked me for a recommended anti-virus program to use with Windows 7.
My suggestion was to use Windows Defender.
Here's a link showing how do enable it for that OS.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqcFLabRc10

Please feel free to add your own recommendations.  (Don't bother pointing out the drawbacks of continuing to use Windows 7.)

Regards,

Ralph Sutter

For Windows 10 I recommend Malwarebytes Premium over Defender because it has blocked bad sites and viruses for me several times when Defender never caught them. I also happily used Malwarebytes Free  for Windows 7 in the past, though that may only be for a free trial now.

When I used Free, I usually got offers for Premium either for multiple  years or multiple machines.
