After more than a month, stay at unlicensed Kaspersky and I thought to install a temporary antivirus free. I installed a trial version of Avast!And I was surprised to see that not all antivirus modules, runs to normal on Windows Vista. (Home Premium).
Microsoft, 13 recommend a list of manufacturers who have Security Solutions compatible on operating systems Windows View:
1. Kaspersky (Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 & Kaspersky 2009).
Personally, I use Kaspersky for years and are very pleased with him. I bought a license for KAV 2009 but what I observed is weaker security than previous versions and still consume more resources. It's good though that can run KAV KAV 7 2009 Licensed :)
Kaspersky for Windows Vista - click.
2. CA. - Provides solutions for anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-spyware, and office data protection, firewall and has a Special offer Microsoft customers.
Corduroy tell me Microsoft, I've never heard of him. visit http://shop.ca.com/ for details.
3. BitDefender - A fairly widespread antivirus in Romania, but which in the free version (moka) is not compatible on Windows Vista. (Windows 98 / NT-SP6 / Me / 2000 / XP IE 4.0 (+) .
I have very pleasant memories with this virus. I remember that I got "free" a few years ago, I bought a system Davio (Like Altex it was with that ...). Consume very many resources (especially since I 256 RAM) and protection was rather frail.
I visited official page a Bitdefender and I burst into laughter when I saw "intro" and pulled people header:
Thanks for having me made me proud to be Romanian. It grows heart to see that BitDefender is no. 1 the world. It is a pride to hear that this product wins awards after awards by broad IT markets.
Good. Awards: Coloring books and lollipops for when that blocks the operating system. Happy Holidays!
4. F-Secure . As Kaspersky is distributed in two versions: F-Secure Internet Security 2008 (including firewall) and F-Secure Anti-Virus 2008 and Microsoft customers, promises a very generous discount. 40% for both.
Special Offer for Microsoft Customers: 40% Discount on F-Secure Anti-Virus 2008 or F-Secure Internet Security 2008
In Romania, have not heard too much about F-Secure, being more prevalent in France, Germany, Japan, UK, Slovenia and Sweden. Official site of F-Secure: http://www.f-secure.com/
5. AVG. Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Anti-Spam, Web Protection & Firewall. It doesn't need too many comments. It is an antivirus with many fans and it seems that the old free distributions are quite sufficient / effective for many users.
From what I see on the official website of AVG, the free version was withdrawn, instead of remaining available 30 day trial. Users of Windows Vista, they have two AVG variants available. AVG Internet Security and AVG Anti-Virus - click here.
6. Symantec or Norton Nightmare. Usually, it comes with the systems they have Windows Vista is pre-installed and is the first software that any user past the level "what is that CPU ?!", uninstalls.
"Protect your PC from viruses, hackers and privacy threats.". For Microsoft customersOffers a 90 trial days.
*September 2006 / Stealth Settings - Symantec - Virus Free

9. Trend Micro - Trend Micro Products Are Windows Vista Certified.
Distributed mainly in the markets of U.S., Canada and Europe, to my intelligence, I have not heard of it until very vague, although the product appears to be quite complete. If you want details about this virus, visit the official website Trend Micro.
10 K7 Computing. Antivirus, Anti-Spam, Anti-Spyware, Firewall, Privacy, System Monitor.
I think it is almost nonexistent in Romania. K7 antivirus Computing has still many fans in Japan, over 5 million users. Super offer Microsoft customers to purchase packages K7 TotalSecurity 9.0 and K7 Antivirus 7.0.
11 Vision Power - A recommended antivirus for Microsoft customers worldwide (including Romania).
okay. English version (/ en) can not be accessed. "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading" and for more details about Power Vision, you must have imagination. http://www.vpower.co.kr/
12 Quick Heal. 3 in 1. AntiVirus, AntiSpyware and FireWire.
