Antivirus - What works - Windows Vista

Has anyone been able to get "any" common antivirus programs to work with beta 2. I am not talking about enterprise versions. Antivirus versions for home computers only. Lets get a list going! CA eTrust = problematical. I had to remove it as it was freezing my system. -- Regards, Richard Urban MVP Windows Shell/User (using Vista 5384) Quote from George Ankner: If you knew half as much as you think you know, You would realize you don't know what you thought you knew....

    Default Antivirus - What works

    Has anyone been able to get "any" common antivirus programs to work with
    beta 2. I am not talking about enterprise versions. Antivirus versions for
    home computers only.

    Lets get a list going!

    CA eTrust = problematical. I had to remove it as it was freezing my system.

    Avast works - I took a custom install and only loaded the "Standard
    Shield". Basic protection and only inflicts a slight performance penalty.

    I am trying Avast 4.7 now. Will post back after a few reboots, as that is
    what seemed to kill CA eTrust on my system.

    CA crashes my system, I had to remove it in safe mode.
