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.

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.

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
