Apr 14, 2012 3:57 PM

Can anyone indicate what Anti-Virus is being used succesfully with Win7 (64bit) and LR4? i understand that LR4 is quite finiky about having any Anti-Virus software looming around.

    At the recommendation of my computer system builder (Puget Systems, a bit expensive but top notch for custom systems) I am using the free Microsoft Security Essentials:

    Updates daily, free, unobstrusive.  What's not to like?

    Have always used Eset 64-bit on my Win7 64-bit PC...No intrusions, or unecessary silly alerts all the time as with some others, and the Virus Bulletin results speak for themselves (virusbtn.com). I compared Eset against all the major contenders, and it passed on all levels, where others dropped a catch here and there.

    At different times and on different machines, I've used Norton Antivirus, McAfee, Microsoft Essentials, AVG free antivirus and maybe more.  All with LR4 and Win 7 64-bit, as well as earlier versions of LR and earlier versions of Windows.  Not encountered any problems relating to Lightroom.
