Good news for the folks who are trying out the Windows 7 beta operating system. Microsoft actively worked with the security software providers and managed to get security software that are compatible with Windows 7 Beta.
As of today the following anti-virus solutions are available via Windows 7 Security Provider page
- Symantec offers the Norton 360 3.0 Beta
- AVG offers AVG Internet Security and AVG Anti-Virus
- Kaspersky offers beta version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows 7
Microsoft is actively working with additional antivirus software providers so that security software solutions will be available for Windows 7 Beta and Windows 7 RTM. All the above mentioned software are freely available to download and they are expected to work as long as long as Windows 7 is in beta phase(of course, AVG is always free).
