Vista own Firewall is very good, and quite sufficient for what you need.

Below are some compatible security Programs you might want to use with Vista.

http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

Avast Anti-Virus is Vista compatible (32bit and 64bit Versions), FREE,
auto-updating, and a low resources user of your computer.
And, only have 1(one) Anti-Virus installed / running on your computer at any
one time..
Conflicts may occur if you have more than 1(one).

http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html

Spybot Search & Destroy 1.6 is a very good, FREE Anti-Spyware Program.
Download, install, update, and immunize your System with it.
Then SCAN with it.
Update it, and scan your System once a fortnight.

http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

SpywareBlaster 4.1 is a non-intrusive, FREE Anti-Spyware Program that runs
in the background (no scanning by you!).
SpywareBlaster prevents the installation of many so-called spyware, adware
and malware programs by disabling the CLSIDs of popular spyware ActiveX
controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage
Update it once a fortnight, and let it do its work in the background!

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Malwarebytes is as the name says, a Malware Remover!
Download, then update, the FREE version from one of the sites listed below:

Download from Download.com
Download from MajorGeeks.com
Download from GT500.org

I wouldn't advise Avast. It is not so safe. Try Avira.

Come up with something credible to back up that ridiculous statement
lest everyone think you're an idiot.

I already do, so it won't change my mind.

Read this, you blundering idiot! You seem to think that you know everything
better and no one must have the arrogance to say anything against you. But
now it shows that you know nothing at all, potatohead!

Looks pretty safe to me.

Nice to see the ones I had chosen at the top of the list.

Just because it appears as second best, doesn't mean it is
unsafe - and it is easy to infer 'unsafe' from "not so safe"
even though that is actually what you wrote.

I advise either one about equally - both are adequate for
many users' needs and have proven to work with Vista.

I never said that the others were UNsafe, they are just less accurate in
practice.

Isn't that what I just said? It is easy to *infer* from your
phrasing (since you put "would't advise Avast" so close to
"not so safe") that you meant more than "less accurate in
practice". I didn't say that you implied it, or said it, only
that you left it easy to infer.

Anything in the top 10 is a good product, at that level the only differences
are - as listed in your proof - differences in ergonomics, look-n-feel.

Anything in the Top 5, I would use or recommend to anyone, especially if the
top priority is Free/shareware.

Different uses/users have unique priorities. One size does not fit all. Over
the years, I have found there is no such thing as "best".

I just spent the past week looking at McAfee (it's free for Comcast
customers), AVG 8 (I've used AVG in the past), Avira and Avast (I've
been using Avast since AVG 7.5 passed on).

I rejected McAfee because it produced false positives a couple times,
because it is something of a resource hog compared to the others, and
because it placed a warning icon in my tray to remind me that I'd shut
off email scanning (it uses a proxy for email).

I rejected AVG because it constantly popped up false-positive messages
about a couple files on my system. Plus I've lost confidence in AVG
because of recent reports of problems with several Windows updates.

I rejected Avira because of the very irritating nag screen trying to
get me to go with the pro version. Otherwise, it seemed OK.

So I'm sticking with Avast. - even though it's impossible to stop all
of its operations (if needed) without uninstalling it.
