    Hi, just a general question about what programs can safely be left on your
    set up prior to installing Vista RC1? I have Norton Security, will this need
    disabling, is it okay to have IE RC1 installed before installing Vista, and
    what about WLMD beta? Should this be dis-abled? Its just that when I install
    RC1, I want to make sure that I have no programs installed that might clash
    with it.

  2. Use the Upgrade Advisor on the DVD.
    Uninstall, not just disable, anything Vista may have issues.
    Especially uninstall any anti virus and other malware detection programs, so
    uninstall Norton.
    I would also suggest uninstalling any Betas you may have installed.

    You may be better off with a Clean Installation..
