Reason Why Vista Provides Ultimate Security

    The below synopsis information (in part) extracted from Microsoft; should
    you desire understanding and learning more, please follow the provided URL.

    It is important to remember that Microsoft (for years) has actively
    discouraged third-party applications developers from designing software that
    modifies the Windows kernel, because such software has been known to cause
    instability issues and lower the reliability of Windows. Rather than allow
    kernel modifications that could cause reliability and security problems for
    you, Microsoft has worked for many years with third-party developers, such as
    security software developers, to encourage the use of Microsoft-supported
    extensions that enable them to build more effective and reliable products.

    Some security vendors have asked Microsoft to provide instructions on how to
    disable Kernel Patch Protection in 64-bit versions of Windows, because their
    products include some features that modify the Windows kernel in undocumented
    and unsupported ways. Making exceptions and allowing some vendors special
    access to modify the Windows Vista kernel is unworkable. It opens the door
    wide for malicious software. For example, rootkits could be designed to
    present themselves to the operating system in the guise of a legitimate
    application that was given special access. Also, making exceptions will
    prolong the reliability problems that are caused by unsupported kernel
    modification, such as when multiple applications compete to patch the same
    kernel interfaces.

    In the case of security solutions, unsupported kernel modifications also
    limit your choices, by making it extremely difficult or impossible for
    multiple security solutions to co-exist reliably on a system. We want to work
    with security providers to make common extensions available, so that any
    security vendors can use them, and so that security software does not itself
    put your security and reliability at risk from malicious kernel modifications.

    Here is what we are doing to maintain the integrity and security of 64-bit
    Windows, while still addressing the needs of our security partners:

    Please note, the above URL provides Blog Links discussing what occurs when
    including add ons within IE 7.

    Should you try one of the add ons, be triple certain the add on will
    function within Vista, if not troubles and conflicts will you encounter.

    And so many 'third party' recommendations to choose from.

    I wonder if any of them are "nightly builds"?

    I also wonder if the OP truly knows what a 'kernel' is.
    Other than Kernel Klink.

    Well, no; not quiet - yet. Now that should read:
    "Live is wonderful without Vista!"

    XP-SP2 and a decent hardware & software firewall plus some good AV, and life
    is sooo much better (not to mention user friendly)!

    On 3, everyone take out their Windows 98 CD, boot to the CD, reformat your
    PC, install your apps, and you should be runnin just fine without Vista.

  10. You need to get an OEM CD, not a Retail CD.

    Or, get an MS-DOS 6.20 boot floppy with CDROM support and start the computer
    with that instead. Run SETUP.EXE from the CDROM when you think it might be
    indicated.

  11. And yet you, Firewall2 AKA Vista Ready as well as many other recent aliases,
    are the ONLY ON to suggest any operating system has "Ultimate Security"
    There is no such thing and probably never will be.
    If you would pay attention to anything that has been said to you in the past
    few months, you too would know that.
    Instead you keep attempting to spread your self created myths.

    Wow, I never thought about that. Send me your address and I'll rush my
    pristine copy of Windows 3.1 over so you can become productive again!!
