Spyware software compatibility
Hi

I'm about to upgrade to windows vista and I'd like to run AVG and Zone Alarm
free editions. Does anyone know of any compatibility issues with either of
these? If so, what could I use instead. Bulldog has been mentioned to me but
I'm not familiar with it.

Thanks

There is a Vista compatible version of Free AVG, however ZoneAlarm for Vista
is still being beta tested. I'm using PC Tools Firewall Plus 2.0 which is
freeware and Vista compatible. www.pctools.com

You cannot use the XP versions of either. AVG does have a Vista version
that works fine, as does Avast. NOD32 is excellent but not free. For
firewall, you don't really need a 3rd party app. The Vista firewall is
fine. Zone Alarm has a Vista version in Beta.
