    Hi

    Wanted to know what people know about future anti virus support for x64 ? I
    have recently got a new PC with x64 on and knew about the driver issues but
    was not expecting virtually zero support from mainstream antivirus writers.

    Also, am i missing something but i can't seem to get support for japanese
    character sets

    Thanks
    Chris

    There are a few antivirus solutions, such as avast home edition.
    http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html#24

    I have been using that since January, and so far so good. I use PCcillin
    among others, on my 32bit desktops.
    No Norton, thank you.

    Enable asian language support at install or in control panel, just like
    previous xp editions, and that works normally with Mincho and Gothic fonts,
    and the language bar IME as before.

    There is also a CD ISO download of the Japanese MUI, so you can enable Jp
    for all screens, menus, dialog boxes, making x64 100% Japanese native.
    Most excellent.

    All of these are covered in earlier posting in this NG...and on google.

    Ja!

    Computer Associates eTrust Antivirus version 7.1.192 is x64 compatible and
    if you run a search of the forum using 'antivirus I am sure u will find
    more.

  4. I'm one of the first to suggest a search of the forum but unfortunately
    Google doesn't archive this group. I've no idea why? That means searching
    the newsgroup is somewhat limited by the length of time Microsoft servers
    retain posts. Topics discussed a long time back, such as this one, will not
    have all the posts available.

    Question, does anyone know why Google doesn't archive this group? I've
    emailed them but have not received a reply.

  5. because that assignment was going to be handled by their new VP and he isn't
    allowed to work yet?

    (sorry, just kidding.)

    And never will unless he gets better results on his appeal.

    Hey Chris:

    A couple of free antivirus that did a pretty good job for me are AVASt and
    NOD32 beta version for the 64bit apps.
    NODE 32 website is eset.com
    try them out
