I tried Nortons about 8 years ago and said NEVER again. I haven't either! ;)

I'm using the free AVG for now with Vista 64 and it's working great.

On my XP Pro machines I've used CA (zone alarm) internet suite for the last 4 years and have not had an infection yet.

thankx nolan for ur wonderful support.thhs type of response should be needed will be effective.thank u once again.:cool::rolleyes:

Hello from a newby, and very much so. Ref the antivirus question; I had AVG on last pc, and was very pleased at its thoroughness and efficiency. However, havent yet installed it on new pc with its Vista Home premium, because, I caught a glimpse elsewhere of a comment stating that AVG firewall does not work work under Vista, although it appears as if it does. If this is true, will the antivirus aspect work? Regards, Tyro

Hi Tyro, I would think the AVG anti virus would still work but there is another complete solution that I'm hearing good things about.

Since your running Vista Home which I assume is the 32 bit version check out the link below.
ESET NOD32 and Strike Down Malware
ESET NOD32: Antivirus Software
