Anyone know of any antivirus product that works with Vista?
Windows Live OneCare v1.5
More here: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/update/windowsvistarc1av.mspx
WOC 1.5 works well with Vista.
Thanks for that Kaspersky which is actually shown as being compatible on the MS site was blocked by Vista along with all the other supposedly compatible virus programmes. I’m beginning to wonder what’s going on here.
It is not listed as being compatible.
Review the link NR posted.
And remember, those listed are compatible with RC1.
Where does it mention Kaspersky as being compatible with Vista?
I'm running the RTM build without an AV at the moment, but I've seen multiple reports of at least NOD32 2.7 and OneCare 1.5 running successfully on it.
PC-cillin has a beta for Vista. I've been running it for about a month with no issues.
AVG 7.5 and avast 4.0 right now though for a paid version, NOD32 is the best though I've used AVG free for 4 years without a problem. Using AVG ATM on Vista RTM.
Avast 4.7 free version has been working on all versions I have used.... up to Vista RC2
No problems with NOD32 2.7 here, What I'd really like to find is a decent Firewall program. I'm not really liking the built in with the changes that they made to the outgoing monitoring.
AVG works fine, although the x64 version needs the pro.
I believe it is now also listed on the MS pages if you lack one and go browse MS for suitable products.
PcCillin 15.3 work fine for me support X86 and X64
Bitdefender you need to be register to download it
F-Secure Antivirus Beta 7.00 work on X86 only
Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition. Version 10.2 is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit
Norton Internet Security 2007
Vista Public Beta
Norton AntiVirus 2007
Vista Public Beta
Protector Plus 2007 - Beta. I never try this one
Nod32 works like a dream, on 86 and 64 vista
Ok which one catches more virii and gives less false positives? Which way uses less resources?
nod32 Only KAV is better.
Hmm apparently KAV is now vista compatible:
Edit2: (uhm... don't need all that fancy formatting and image just the text....)
"Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0
Vista Ready! This product is now compatible with Microsoft Vista."
This is what I installed last night and I don't like it. I can't schedule a time for it to scan.
I am running Kaspersky without any problems and you can shedule scans with it. Link on on the front page news to the latest version.
KAV 6 killed my vista install ?!? kept crashing. Tried it on a clean XP install. terminal reboot. Something odd there...
Windows Live OneCare (WOC) v1.5 is now available to the masses.
OneCare didn't show up on Virus Bulletin as getting 100%.
Avast, AVG, CA Home, CA eTrust, Kasperky, and Symantic all scored 100.
