Default Anti Virus Program

I think the chances of people who can't install AVAST having a "corrupt
install of Vista" particularly if Vista is working relatively well that has
anything to do with that problem are slim and none Jason.

I have Vista 5536 working fine, and a lot of us have exp. problems on it
installing AVAST. One solution is to go to driver verifier by typing
verifier in the run box and disalbing *inspection of the software drivers
for AVAST.* This has no impact on the functionality of AVAST AV. Also this
is one of the steps to prevent blue screens from showing up, along with
disabling deadlock detection in Driver Verifier.

If you have problems installing the Avast or AVG antivirus, you may also
have a corrupt install of Vista. If you continue to have problems, I may
suggest to reinstall the OS.

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me in installing an anti virus. I have
tried just about all the programmes suggested by Microsoft and none have
installed. Most of the time I get the message that installation files
are
corrupted and redownload the programs. I am on a dialup connection(I
live in
the country, nothing faster availabe) and this is getting frustrating. I
even downloaded a 54 megs program that Vista Ultimate refused to load. I
keep getting the popup that when I open that says that the publisher is
unknown(baloney) and then I have to click OK and the program refuses to
open.
Norton System Works or Anti virus refuses to go past SPBBC does not
support
this OS. I love Vista(so far) but I am about ready to flush it if I
can't
find an anti virus. I am not suicidal yet. Any help will get you my
everlasting recognition.

CH, can you give a little more information?

There are a number of questions asked from the verifier wizard, this is a
good oportunity to learn something and fix something.

**I've installed 5536 about 6 times, from 3 different downloads, Avast,
Trend and AVG all will not load resident scanner.***

According to Avast under Vista 5536 ONLY. MS accidently blocked their
scanner from working. Even if you get it to install it will not function
correctly.
