Microsoft itself is not too interested in supporting x64 enabled software or
services. MSN Music stuff, Windows Meida Player stuff, all kinds of ActiveX
controls, stuff for IE 6 x64, Live stuff, OneCare stuff. At least they are
attempting to do Defender for XP x64. (Doesn't work though.)

As for partners, it is practically impossible to get good x64 Antivirus
support for XP, much less Vista.... not sure about Vista x86 though.

No, Windows OneCare won't be supported until after Vista is released, right
now its target base is Windows XP. Recommendations, Windows Life Safety
which is online scanner, eTrust Enterprise 8.0 Public Beta Trial, Macaffee
Enterprise 8.0 BETA for Vista is expected in March, Avast! Home 4.63 (please
disable web shield), Symantec AntiVirus for Vista

"As for partners, it is practically impossible to get good x64 Antivirus
support for XP" - I am running Symantec AV 10.0.1 and it works just fine on
x64 (Avast and Nod32 are free.
I beg to differ:
Avast! - http://www.avast.com/eng/avast-for-l...rkstation.html
Nod32 - http://www.nod32.com/home/home.htm

AVG Professional - http://www.grisoft.com/doc/Single/lng/us/tpl/tpl01

Yeah but how many of these work or are obtainable, AVG fails to install,
Symantexc needs a license code. NOD I'm about to try.

OneCare Live is expected to be rolled out into beta at the time of RC1 (a
month or so after the Beta 2 release, and about the same time OneCare Live
is released as a full product) and will be run as a beta on Vista.

Actually I was referring to Windows XP Professional x64, not Vista x64

I found that some AVG kernal wasn't loading at startup and the AVG icon that
showed AVG was active in the bottom toolbar wasn't showing. I found 2 ways
to fix it. One is to open AVG and then click the 'Control Center'. The other
way is to turn off the 'User Account Control" in Vista. To do that, go to
Control Panel/User Accounts/Turn User Account control on and off. Either way
seems to put AVG into Active Mode.

I LOVE FREE AVG!!!

AVG 7.5 is not loading the Resident Shield for me. On the AVG forum, it
states that this is a known bug that will be corrected in the next program
update.
