Hello. I was sent here from the Vista forum after fixing my computer from bsod.

I had Norton, and it was causing the bsod so it is gone and I now have Avast Free.

After rebooting, I was checking the Event Viewer and had a couple error messages that said Avast was marked as an interactive service, but that the system is configured to not allow interactive services, and that the service may not function properly.

I went to Microsoft technet for the event id 7030. It said that you can set it to interactive, but that it could open your computer to someone taking over it.

What I would like to know is if I need to set it to interactive or not? If it is not set to interactive, will it not work properly?

I have Windows Defender, Windows Firewall, and Avast. Do I need anything else to be well-protected?

My computer info:
Acer Aspire ax1700-u3700a
4gb ddr2
Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit
E2220 Intel Pentium Dual-Core

Thanks!
