the pro version is not compatible (it actually caused the OS to reboot upon
install). the free version is working.

The free version is compatible with 5536. I am running it now on 5536 without a problem.

Are you sure it is actually working. After thinking one was working years
ago, I have taken to keeping a live virus on a floppy, but you can also use
the universal test virus, just to make sure, especially after any error
messages installing it.

I am also running the free version on build 5384. You have to download the
latest version of Free AVG. I installed it after being current on all of the
vista updates but I don't know if that is necessary or not.

Default virus scanners-thanks

Thanks for the replys and info. Think I'll give it a try. Trial version of
F-prot seems to be giving trouble, on my machine anyway. Thanks again
