Is AVG 9 ok with W7 now?

  john bunyan 15:33 24 Dec 2009

Following comments on the forums, when I switched to W7 64 bit a couple of weeks ago from XP, I also switched to Avira anti virus. It is ok, but I miss some features of AVG, such as e mail scanning. It also was given higher marks in another publication.
Is the free version of AVG 9 now ok in W7 64bit?

Have AVG 9 on both my 64 bit W7 machines.

Neither has cause any issues that I am aware of.

I use PC tools firewall but think others had an issue with AVG and Zone Alarm. I will try it again after Christmas. Thanks.JB

Am running AVG 9 on win 7

I only use the built in Windows Firewall and my routers protection.

Thanks for comments. I liked the AVG as it checked e mails on reciept. I have had, I think, a small problem with PC Tools firewall in that occasionally mt network is not recgnised and I have to reinstall network card drivers - this does not happen with the Windows Firewall, but is it good enough to stop outgoing traffic?. Mabe I'll switch to W7 Firewall plus AVG...
