    To be perfectly honest with you. Most of the computer guru's I know are staying with XP. Vista is a very vulnerable OS regardless of what Microsoft says. They even have the firewall set up backwards and it is very difficult to make changes to the firewall. Trust me when I say that if you are not a system guru then you will be open for destruction.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that most of the viruses are going to be directed at Vista. Those of us with XP should have fewer and fewer problems. The key to the game is to wait at least a year and then check to see if the OS has been updated and has fixes for all of the problems. Most likely it will not, but their is always that chance that it will.

    AVG is a great AV program. I personally believe that it blows the doors off of McAfee and Norton. Avast is another good AV program and the best part is that you can get them for home users for FREE!!
