    That's not good... I'm using Trend. Fortunately, I'm not using Vista.

    Say's nothing about the AV that I use (Panda), but I have to say that I've had no problems with Panda on Vista. Would have been funny if Microsoft Forefront or Onecare failed :)

    From wht I have heard & read my anti virus is the one that came top (Avira) not sure about Panda, maybe download the free version of Avira just to be sure.
