What security do you need for Windows 7? This seems to be a question quite commonly asked among PC users across the world. In order to know what you need for Windows 7 you must first understand what Windows 7 offers.
Windows 7 pre-installed protection
Windows 7 comes with its own firewall. Although this firewall can protect a small number of threats, you are still exposed to a large quantity of unwanted intruders. Having the Windows 7 system without any security is like leaving your home door closed but unlocked. Whoever wants to intrude, eventually will.
So what security do you need for Windows 7?
You need a quality firewall and antivirus software. There are many great programs out there. Unfortunately these packages are sold separately and can cost you an arm and a leg. The best option is to go with a service that has all-in-one internet protection. Norton Internet Security is a fantastic solution for this problem.
Another great software for security is Norton 360. The new version of this software will pleasantly surprise any avid computer user. For more information about these products please visit the Symantec website.
