    Hello Vista users: Anyone running 64-bit Vista Feb 06 CTG and a 64-bit
    anti-virus application successfully? Have tried AVAST and Symantec. In
    both cases their current 64-bit corporate editions failed to work. AVAST
    resulted in system slowdowns and lockups, Symantec resulted in BSOD loops.
    (AVAST worked fine with 64-bit Vista, Nov 05 CTP, didn't try Symantec until
    today.) As far as I can tell these are the only 2 vendors with 64-bit AV
    that is Vista-aware, but neither seems compatable with the Feb 06 Vista CTP.
    Anyone with some success to share?
    Thanks, John

  3. If you try ClamWin as well - works really well, but doens't
    offer real-time scanning :eek:(
