    ok, as thread states....

    how good does 'your av' work on vista, i ask because ive just got it installed and dr.web isnt compatible, so looking for an alternative till that time comes.

    Lots of AV products are compatible with Vista -> Symantec , Panda , Kaspersky , AVG , Avast , NOD32 , MS OneCare ... You can get as many answers/suggestions as posts .
    NOD32 would be my vote ! Works very well :thumb:

    I'm using NOD32, works fine here. (Vista Home Premium)
    I also have KIS but I'm keeping that on the other computer with Windows XP.
    I 've heard Kaspersky works well with Vista also.
    I also have the NIS 2007 CD that was shipped with the Vista computer, haven't used that one

    I choose NOD32,because of its heuristic and fast speed

    if i find it, i will let you know what its like on vista HP,

    having only tried it once, it looked ok etc, but until my dr.web comes vista, i will use it, give it a proper run-through with vista :)

    I'm afraid you can't . Panda's version which works on Vista is Panda AV 2007 only (the orange one) . Panda AV and Panda IS 2007 are still not made to work on the new OS

    I think drweb‘s false positives is too high.It can kill many normal files

    correct you are,

    it didnt let me even install it, nevermind run it.

    ok, panda av only trial :)

    ive got panda in my head to try, never really tried it, but if it fails, i will fall back on nod32 till my dr.web becomes vista ready :)

    -----------

    good options though, fantastic scan speed.

    so far, its good although i do wish it did look better (and yes im a dr.web user *lol*)

    in my opinion these so called "advanced heuristics" of NOODs are a bit overrated. i think that the user itself is the best heuristics you can find, and that almost any AV will do. The best av for vista is the one that doesn't crash, doesn't impact your system performance, doesn't make you look like an idiot when seeing it's user interface (not because it's beutyfull, but because it's hard to go through) and doesn't conflict with anything else.

    I'm using NOD32, not problems here, I did try Kaspersky, it worked fine too, untill I installed Spy Sweeper, and Spy Sweeper wouldnt scan with Kaspersky installed....well actually it did scan, but it took 9 hours :blink: 16 minutes when I uninstalled Kaspersky :blink:

    I would have suggested BitDefender 10, but I've heard that BD10 is slow with Vista on some PCs. So at this point I recommend AVG Anti-Malware, it was one of the first products to support Vista as well.

    ok, i ran panda 2007, and put it through its paces, the software runs very fast and very light indeed, works great on vista.

    cons: scanning archives seems a bit poor, unzip them and it finds it automatically.

    ---------
    now giving nod32 a go on vista :)
