Just sorted SP2, seems ok, so now would like ask whats the best malware/anti-virus/software to install on Vista Basic?
Pref free stuff..

I have windows firewall, plus goodies that come with Vista, AVG anti virus free and Malware bytes free.

Anything else to be recommended??

Thanks.

Moved from Vista to a more appropriate forum. Tw

Hi Thanks for the reply.

If I was to get the upgrade to Win 7, I assume it would have to be a complete new install, having to do back up of the stuff I already have on here, etc?
It would not be a simple task of inserting a DVD/CD and letting it do its own thing, with existing music, pistures, etc still on here?
Sorry I am not a techy!!

Any info that might be helpful concerning this process would be grateful.

Thanks in advance.
Neil

You've got a reasonable setup, I suggest you also use safe computing practices to prevent malware.
