Have just installed 64-bit Windows 7, but have discovered that Virgin Media PC Guard and McAfee are not compatible. Does anyone know which good name security applications work with Windows 7?

Firewall W7 + click here
MWBAM and SAS.

virgin media pc guard hasn't got the best reputation so you might say thats a blessing in disguise.i'm on windows 7 64bit using the windows firewall,avast and windows defender.the setup that rdave13 has added above will do you just fine.

I use Microsoft Security Essentials click here There is a 64bit version very good and free.
