Transitioning from a Mac to Vista

Posted: 01-26-2009, 04:26 PM

Hi All,

I have an older Apple laptop that I've been using forever, but my new job is all Windows based and will be issuing me a laptop with Vista64 installed. I'm really not very knowledgeable about Windows software so forgive the newbie question. Does Windows Vista64 need a special antivirus or is there one pre-installed? Will I be able to use my printer and other peripherals with my new laptop? Thanks for your help!

1) ALL installations of Windows require third-party antivirus
products.
2)NO installations of Windows have antivirus provided by Microsoft.
3) As long as you have correct hardware drivers, you will be able to
use your peripherals. Peripherals without valid drivers will not
work.
