The problem with the Anti-Virus(McAfee/Symantec) that is pre-installed on OEM systems, is that they wouldn't want to raise flags against the other pre-installed software crapware on OEM systems.    

So are they going to find everything or just ignore certain files? And then since most people don't know about free alternatives,  an instant paid subscription, after the free trial period, to the pre-installed programs.

Note that McAfee and Symantec were sued by NewYork for automatically renewing peoples subscriptions at the end of one year, since they kept the credit card details on file. McAfee and Symantec lost the case.

I have Avast.   http://avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html  .It's a Nice program.  Works with Windows 7 64 bit. No nag screen. You just have to enter a free key number thats good for a year. And no nagging emails either, from getting the key.

And disable the voice warnings so you don't get spooked all of a sudden if an infection comes to your local.
