  2. I haven't tried installing ZA on Vista mainly because there was every chance
    it wouldn't work. However, there is no immediate panic. Vista has it's own
    firewall, so there is nothing stopping you staying on the internet.

    I've been using the Vista built in firewall for months without problems. The
    Vista firewall is somewhat superior to the original windows firewall in XP.

  3. John is absolutely correct here. However Windows One Care beta is live for
    trial for those customers who would like to try it on Vista. Otherwise if
    you are confident in the Windows firewall and need only antivirus protection
    then AVAST home edition is FREE for use on one home PC.

  4. Robert, i've just added One care to Vista RC2. Haven't used it before, but
    quite impressed so far.

    "Vista has it's own firewall"

    Technically yes, but in practice it's actually disabled by default
    (outgoing) and most users in the world would not know how to make it work
    anyway because it's completely manual (That's assuming that you can find
    where to make the changes!). You have to understand quite a lot about
    networking to even know where to start with it...
