Windows Vista needs no Anti-Virus?

JIM ALLCHIN, outgoing co-President of the Platform Products and Services Group at Microsoft, has suggested that Windows Vista is so secure it may not need an antivirus system.

Heh, yeah right. When pigs can fly and cows still jump over the moon.

There is One Comment so far to “Windows Vista needs no Anti-Virus?”

  1. If you’re running Vista on your computer then you definitely need an anti-virus program. Although this was the first time Microsoft included an anti-virus with the operating system, they still made the mistake of releasing their source code to all of the major anti-virus software companies. This is a mistake that they didn’t make with Windows 7 and it’s been doing much better.. surprise, surprise. Now, I have no proof of this (disclaimer :D), but it has always been rumored, and makes perfect sense, that the major anti-virus companies are the ones that write most of the viruses and spyware and malware and all that garbage. I mean does it not make you wonder a little when a new virus comes out and they suddenly have the answer in their next update? Yet, when a real virus comes along that actually is harmful to computers it takes them forever to figure out? My best advice is just pay your dues and buy into the conspiracy and guard your computer until you change operating systems altogether or upgrade to Windows 7. However, even with Windows 7 I would probably still run one just for safe measures. I do. Because Windows 7 is a lot like Vista, they just made it not such a resource hog, which means there was a lot of code reuse and a lot of the same vulnerabilities.

    If you’ve never heard of it before, some software that’s worth trying out are the products made by ParetoLogic Inc. Most of their products have gotten solid reviews, yet tend to get over looked a good bit.
