Hi,

I have Microsoft Security Essentials for my Win 7 64bit OS.

My question is, what is simply the best and necessary software for viruses and spyware?

There are so many options out there, and I just want to know what is the real deal and what I really need.

Thanks!

Wes

These are questions we get quite often here. You could ask a dozen experts what they consider the best, but you'll get mixed answers - some will choose the same, some different...a lot of it comes down to personal preference.
I use Microsoft Security Essentials on my Windows 7 machine and it's served me well. It's lightweight, doesn't bog down your system and does a nice job with protection. If you don't have any anti-malware protection installed, I would recommend MalwareBytes or Superantispyware (honestly you could have both and they are free). Make sure you have an active firewall and that you stay up to date with Windows Updates. Most importantly, the best advice we could give with your machine's security is have common sense when browsing the internet, opening emails or downloading anything. :)

lunarlander, is there a problem with the website or is it just me? I can't go either of the arrows to go forward or background. I'm assuming that one page that loads is not the only page there is.

The arrows don't move the pages for me either - but the page numbers at the top work fine moving forwards & backwards.

Yeah the arrows don't work. But the page links on the top of the page works.

I have taken out the arrows.
