That explains why it kept saying I didn't have an AV installed when AntiVir is installed and updated. Shutting the report feature for AV took care of that.

I'm using BitDefender 2009, bought it on november and it works well under 7, however OS doesn't know if the antivirus is working properly or is updated, because as Nekrosoft says Microsoft has changed the way AV programs communicate with OS.

I hope it will be fixed in a future BitDefender update, but it doesn't bother me at all because antivirus works

Hmm i must be the only one using Trend Micro's trial internet security for windows 7. I have to say, i dont have any reason to change atm as ive never experienced any problems with it. The ram usage seems low and the scans are fast, which is all im needing.

I guess most internet security suites do exactly the same thing these days, just with different GUI's.
