No. Try another AV. Avast offers a FREE x64 version that is compatible
with Vista: http://www.avast.com/eng/x64.html

Use the native Vista software firewall in conjunction with a hardware
firewall included in a wired or wireless router. That will provide
sufficient protection.

Since you have Vista Ultimate 64 bit you need 64 bit anti-virus software.
The vendors of 64 bit AV software include Avast as mentioned by MowGreen and
AVG. There is also a enterprise version from Symantec available (*not*
Norton AV) . You may want to post in the newsgroup dedicated to 64 bit
Windows (including Vista), namely microsoft.public.windows.64bit.general .
By no means should you downgrade to Vista Ultimate 32 bit just because of
the lack of a CA anti-virus software version.
