  • There is no need of anti-virus for WEC7 or WEC2013.

    And, Symantec Endpoint Protection or most of the antivirus programs which are available for desktop Windows are not available for WEC.

    Not needed except that you install the trusted application.

    All application will not run on your device unless compiled for your device/target.

  • Thanks, Keshava and Misbah.

    If anti-virus is a system requirement and we must install any one of the anti-virus on it.

    Any slim anti-virus ( or portable anti-virus) we can install on WEC ?

    Thanks a lot.
