"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Go to Microsoft Downloads and look for Windows Security Essentials. That is what Windows 7 uses.  I have that here.

Also for Windows 7 you need something more powerful than Windows Defender / to coexist with Defender to keep your system safe.
