So is 7-Zip malware? I just installed or updated it and I am not sure if I should uninstall it or not. I was going through programmes to check for anything that should not be there and was not sure about 7-Zip. Someone who knows about this stuff would be good to answer. I'm trying to keep this computer clean and be proactive since my last computer was pretty much consumed by malware, which I did not keep in check. I have AVG now. I might get Norton when I have the money as my free period is up. My computer nerd friend said AVG was good. Anway, not sure about the 7-Zip. Is is legit? Gee, I really hate malware. Every time I have a problem with it I take pleasure in considering the depth of Dante's Inferno the makers of it will be in. The seventh, I suppose, for the violence--no, the eight because they are fraudulent! Hahahah!
