Windows 7 and McAfee Antivirus
« on: 13. August 2009., 20:19:48 »
Ok well I thought I would lay this out there for everyone.  Since I am a computer consultant and have access to things others don't, I have Windows 7 enterprise edition (retail version).  I will let you know I like this much better then Vista already, for it isn't sucking ram like a kid with there first coke.  But I have run into one issue and thought I would ask and seen if anyone has seen this.  I had McAfee Anti-virus 8.5i Patch 8 (thanks again Samker)  but it would not load on Windows 7 for me.  So I thought I would ask if any of you techies out there that have been playing with Windows 7, does McAfee 8.7i work with Windows 7 or am I stuck with Sophos as my new anti-virus.  Now, I like Sophos, but I like McAfee as well.  So let me know your thoughts and if anyone has 8.7 and it works with Windows 7 ??

I'm 99,9% sure that v8.7 work with Win.7, here is few official info from McAfee (March 2009): https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB61013

8.7i works fine on Windows 7, although watch out... when you run it on x64 it constantly warns you that something tries to terminate it when really that isn't a case.  It's something that should be fixed in Patch 2.

Patch 2 is what McAfee recommends.

This is what we use in our it world as well...  Looks like 8.5 may never work...
