    Norton is eeeevil! Seriously.

    Get AVG or Avast.

    AVG I believe has some issues with Vista. I remember something about it not wanting to start up properly and maybe update. It still 'works' though.

    Considered going without? May not be a good option for you though.

    I have been using AVG with Vista with no problems what so ever. Updates and runs just fine. I would not get Norton's for anything though!

    Anyone know how Avira's free version of their AntiVir works with Vista?

    Also, I believe Kaspersky has worked the the kinks out with 32-bit Vista but check their forums for the latest.

    Norton is a FAR superior antivirus than AVG, but it tends to come with a lot of resource hogging baggage. By now, I think Symantec has cut a lot of this down. 360 was supposedly pretty good. So its six of one, half a dozen of the other. If you want better protecton, norton is the one, if you want your system light, but some protection, avg is the way to go.

    i agree... norton takes a lot of memory usage. We use AVG or AVAST here
