    Hi, I'm interested in the new Windows Vista BETA 2. i downloaded and ran the
    Windows Vista upgrade advisor and it said everything would work (some drivers
    would have to be installed manually) so i thought great i'll try it. i
    ordered the disk and when it arrived i popped it in and went to load it.
    everything going grand untill it says several of my programs won't be
    compatible. Many of them i can live without but one of them being the Norton
    SystemWorks 2006 and internet security. Before i carried on with the stages i
    thought it would be best to consult someone. Any help will be greatfully
    recieved. Andrew Kingdon

    You could skip the Norton product and download one of the free
    Vista-compatible AV programs like the one from Avast. Vista has everything
    else you need (firewall, antispyware, data execution prevention, etc.).

  3. Do NOT upgrade a system with Systemworks 2006 installed. Remove it first.
    It is impossible to remove under Vista and Vista will have severe problems
    with it installed.

    Drew --

    You'll be just fine with Avast on Vista. I haven't had any trouble at all
    with it, and I would second the motion to stay away from Norton period
    really. There are other choices and if you just search for antivirus on this
    group you will get several.
