  • 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.

  • Follow the link :

    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.
