    "During a telephone conference with reporters yesterday, outgoing Microsoft co-president Jim Allchin, while touting the new security features of Windows Vista, which was released to manufacturing yesterday, told a reporter that the system's new lockdown features are so capable and thorough that he was comfortable with his own seven-year-old son using Vista without antivirus software installed."

    It would be interesting to hear what the developers of NOD32 have to say about that claim!

    Hello,

    I would be more interested in hearing what the developers of Windows ForeFront and OneCare thought about Mr. Allchin's claim.

    Regards,

    On it's maiden voyage, the Titanic, once called "Unsinkable" by it's builders, struck an iceberg. Less than Three Hours Later, it was on the bottom of the sea....
