Windows vista needs to have an antivirus program in it. And it's not anticompetitive because vista already includes antispyware and a 2 way firewall.

yes yes ... hear hear.... Ummmm How about NO ...

Windows ( xp and vista ) already have enough in them. You want them to give you something more you don't have control over, to make your system, run even worse, while waiting for them to put out a patch ?

Nope. Not me man .....Vista is just fine without all that crap .... I don't want any other programs if i don't have to have them. I will Install what i need.

You could be barking up the AI tree at that point. An Os that tells you what you need. How about it tells you when you have had enough playtime too.

lol :nodding:,

@ daabomb2002 if you really feel the need to have an antivirus program just install a third party software.

Vista needs built-in security for idiots; but it needs the option to either remove or (never install) this security for people who know what they are doing.

i agree.... I don't need them telling me what is best for me. Who knows wtf their software will conflict with... As it is, you get errors half the time anyways.

I love the new system in installations--typicall user and advanced with the only difference between the two beeing the install path :)

Somehow if the typicall user has no idea how to define an install path that's better, I doubt he is aware of 3th party products.

So your idea should have a go :)

I agree with Archaon, it should have something built in for the people who are not very computer knowlegable, but it should be optional during installtion. They need to have something like a dialog box that pops up and ask you if you want to install a optional built in anti-virus.

Have you heard of the Netscape web browser? Do you use it? My guess is no. Internet Explorer? Probably

Have you heard of Real Player? How about "MusicMatch"? WinAMP? Do you use either one of them as your main media player? My guess is no. Windows Media Player? Probably.

Zone Alarm? In keeping with my previous train of thought, there is a significant possibility that you use the Windows Firewall. Though you may use Norton or McAfee.

How about Norton Anti-Virus? McAfee? AVG? Avast? PC-Cillin?

IBM OS/2?

Now how about this. Have you heard of the European Union, and the Anti-Trust cases against Microsoft?

The more Microsoft adds in, the more control they have. Also, the less secure it will be. If everybody uses a particular program, then that program has to be "generic" enough to suit everyone. Also, that means that all it takes is ONE little problem, and everyone is vulnerable.

Vista does have a built in firewall, and the Windows Defender anti-spyware program.
