  1. I am building a new computer and will be loading 7 Ultimate 64 bit.. I just learned that Norton 360, which I have used for years...DOES NOT support Internet Explorer on 64 bit pc's....Can anyone recommend an Anti-Virus program for 64 bit..?

    Nickc, What do you think of AVAST!....? and what ver are you using. I am considering the $49 Internet Security version.....How long have you been using it? Thanks.

    I second the Microsoft Security Essentials suggestion. I am not aware of any tests showing how its detection compares with others, but there are probably some out there.
