AntiVir is good and so is Avast, which appears to be very compatible
with Vista. Some folks don't care for the nag screen that AntiVir uses:
Disable the Avira Antivir PE Classic avnotify nag screen http://www.elitekiller.com/files/dis...ntivir_nag.htm
Spyware Blaster is good for surfing protection while not *passively*
monitoring the system. ( It sets killbits in the registry )
a-squared (Free) is good at detecting/removing, but not preventing
malware unless one buys the paid version. It does have FPs that one must
do some research on.
