    I need an antivirus for my windows 7 computer.


    I have a windows 7 home premium computer and I think I have a virus or some kind of malware in the computer. So please can any one suggest me for the best antivirus or any other additional security. I have Avast but it seems not enough.

    This forum is primarily for Windows 10, we do have a forum for Windows Seven. Most users here use Defender with Malwarebytes.

    AVG should still run on Win7. I have it on my WinXP computer.

    I run Malwarebytes and Avira and Pale Moon Browser on my Win 7 machine. Good enough for me.

    Welcome to TenForums @baruagt1990

    I had one of those, but I upgraded it to Windows 10. When it was still Windows 7 I used Microsoft Security Essentials. https://www.microsoft.com/download/details.aspx?id=5201

    In 7 or 10, AdwCleaner can remove a lot of malware.

    I would do an AV check from a Win PE CD or any other LiveCD, outside of the main Operating System first.
