since when was spybot an anti-virus??

i would recommend NOD32. fully compatable with any version of vista. they have a thirty-day free trial at their site (www.eset.com). I've replaced my NAV with it, and there was a huge performance jump, not to mention that it detected viruses that norton had been sitting on.

Don't think they came with the program. They were install files for programs that i did. they were on there long before NOD32.

NOD32 is definately the best IMO, and you will notice a big performance boost.

AVG free, or AVAST are two good free choices
