  2. People have reported issues with that AV on Vista x64, I would recommend
    trying something.

    Supposedly the next version of OneCare will work under Vista x64.

    Until then the only package I've seen works well with Vista x64, is the
    Symantec stuff which is still in EARLY beta.

  5. Windows Live OneCare 1.5, only supports Vista x86 at the moment. Nic, have
    you checked Avast! to see if they have anything. I just got in the Symantec
    Beta yesterday, so I haven't been able to download and try their products on
    Vista x64. But I am sure once Vista RTMs, there will be a plethora of AV
    utilities on market to support both platforms.

    I have not been able to load McAfee, the one that comes with Comcast
    subscription. I figure it's not Vista ready. Other than that, Vista has been
    the smoothest beta I have ever tested; I've tested all since W95.
