Help , I need a virus program

  mahalo 14:41 10 Mar 2008

My new computer operating system is Vista Premium and AVG does not work with it. I was perfectly happy with AVG as recommended by forum members.
Is the another good free program available to download that does work with Vista ?. Your help would be very much apprciated. Cheers

AVG does work with Vista as Vog says. Funny enough though when I tried it it didn't work. Why I don't know and I used AVAST instead.
I'm back on XP and back on AVG.

Thank you VoG, I tried loads of times. The computer came loaded with Norton, I remembered that Norton gave me some problems at the start of using my last computer. Anyway I unistalled the 60 day trial, then went to your link and I was able to intall Avg..
Totally-braindead, I dont like Vista at all, I wish I could go back to XP too.
Thanks all for your replies.

Just for reference,also run the NAV removal tool click here

Also use the Vista search to remove any entries that relate to Norton and Symantec,some of this may need to be carried out in safemode.
