    Are there any suggestions on what is best to use or even available for VISTA
    to protect against a virus attack?

    Thanks in advance.

    There are several available.
    I use and like Eset NOD32.

  3. AVG Free works with Vista fine, and it's free. There are others as well
    (NOD32, Norton, etc)

  4. Avast is good too, and also integrates well with Outlook 2007 for
    added real time protection.

  6. Say what? Virus checkers for Vista? I thought that was a thing of the past?

  8. I do also. I wonder if I "paid" for the retail
    program........................., instead of the free version?

    You may change your mind when you install the French language version
    with a soft female voice announcing that 'the virus data base has been
    updated'...:)

    I enjoy Avast for Vista - for XP, I prefer Kaspersky or - as a free
    alternative - Avira AntiVir.

    Nod32 works great here. Others might have different opinions. Main thing is that it should work and you be happy with it. Second guessing sometimes goes the wrong route

    im using Windows Live OneCare at the moment...when i had windows XP i stood
    by Norton AntiVirus 2005. I hear Norton Anti Virus 2007 is also very good!

    im finding Live OneCare interesting, tempted to buy 3 keys for it :)
