    actually panda 2007 ran extremely well on vista, extremely.

    so does my drweb, although its beta. :)

    cant forget bitdefender too, that runs well too.

    The best will be in just a few days, The Avira Security Suite for Vista. It has antispam and rootkit detection. Trust me on this one, it is stable combared to the rest.:)

    So far only AVs that truly and really work perfectly are NOD32 and avast!.
    Others have quirks or have lame detection. I'm also placing bets for AOL AVS for Vista when it comes out in the beginning of May 2007.

    I will take that bet my friend. I have beta tested this one with Vista on one machine and it has been the most reliable I have seen. The ironic part is, that Avira had the boldness, to add to modules to their suite while making it ready for Vista. I have to say, no others have had that much faith in their product to do the same. Look at Eset, now all their users have become free beta testers. Not right in my thoughts.

    Give your head a shake. Avira's just gotten rootkit detection whereas Eset has had it for a while. While your at it explain the beta tester remark.

    Point 1=Detection and cleaning. Seems that second word is a issue for Eset.

    Point 2= Avira has always taken care of their testers, because they know the time and effort given. While Eset brings out a public beta that is no way reay at the start. It is better now in all fairness, but not because of the infamous Eset developers, but because of plain old folk, like you and me.

    Point 3=I own both, and tested both, and their is no way in hell, I would put ESS on a machine with Vista, but I did with Avira.:)

    Point 1= Detection and cleaning: In my experience Eset has done very well in the cleaning department.
    Point2= Version 3 Ess. It's beta duh.o_O And thats what beta testers do, make things better for you and me. And while you are correct to praise Avira today because it's a good product what about tommorrow? You've been up and down like a toilet seat when it comes to Avira. I can recall at least one or more posts where you were going to ditch Avira for, wait for it, ESET. :p

    The only negative thing that I've come across on the Kaspersky forums is the 16K+ file copy "out of memory errors". :(

    http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showtopic=33258

    According to the help file PDM doesn't work in XP x64 or Vista.

    Warning!
    There are no Proactive Defense components in this version of the application (Application Integrity Control and Office Guard) for computers running Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition or computers running Microsoft Windows Vista or Microsoft Windows Vista x64.

    I tried installing Panda AV 2007 on a pc the other day and it crashed during install. :doubt: I didn't have the time to spend troubleshooting so I put Zone Alarm AV 2007 on there instead (KAV 6.0 engine) and it worked fine for my customer. I'll try putting it on a few other pc's when I have time. Panda has given me issues in the past as well, but in the end nothing is perfect I suppose.

    I'm just struggling with ZASS 7 on my business laptop. I can't get the network to work . ZASS is blocking it. Besides I can't get to some files I must admit that the latest version of ZASS works pretty ok.

    Panda is fast and secure. Also fast detection. Very curious on what the detection rate would be right now

    Currently, most likely a standard at av-comparatives.

    Panda may have a light at the end of the tunnel that promises better detection. Firecat mentioned Panda is releasing a new engine by the end of April for all its products in post #8 at this link: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=171298....:eek: :D

    AFAIK ESET has always had an open beta policy for the public.

    I'd like to add Symantec Anti-Virus Corporate, one of the first corporate anti-virus software to support Vista.

    I have run Nis 2007 since i installed vista and i have to say that Nis 2007 is a very good program in which i have never had any problems with at all.I own a license for Nod and Kis and see no reason to use either one at this time.
