    OK thanks - I downloaded the 2.7x version a month ago. That version
    was running on the XP Pro system which I in-place upgraded to Vista
    Business and it is running fine there.

    In Windows XP x64, when I open my folders, the icons seem to come up in
    random order. If I right-click, I can get them in name order, but the next
    time I open the folder, they are random again. (If anything, the last used
    files come up last.)

    I've tried holding Alt when I click to rearrange, but the next time, they
    are still unsorted.

    It's very annoying and time consuming to have to rearrange every folder each
    time I use it. Is there anything else I can try?

    Hi. I have a dual core P$, 3Gig and I was running xp and I purchased vista
    ultimate upgrade but it would only let me install the 32Bit disc. It came
    with the 64Bit disc but it wouldn't install. Did your's work straight away or
    am I missing something? I would love to finally be able to take advantage of
    my dual core because windows 64 was a sham and never worked (and it came with
    the pc).

  5. What processor is in the computer? If it is a Core Duo then it will not run
    a 64-bit OS. Other dual core cpu's will.

  8. Excuse me, but I am running Windows Live One Care on Vista Ultimate x64. I
    am running Avast on a test box under Vista Ultimate x64 SP1 RC Refresh 2.
    Nod32 and AVG also are running on VU x64 for various of the regulars in this
    newsgroup. I don't understand why your installation does not run a variety
    of antivirus solutions.

    I am puzzled. I have no problem running Avast or Eset's Nod32 on XP 64 bit
    or Vista 64 bit.

    As others have said, Avast works fine.
    There's also Windows Defender. I run 'em both.

    I'll Chime in......Version 2 of Once Care working just fine here on my
    Ultimate 64Bit machine. However it is true that anything prior to version
    two would not even install on 64 Bit Vista. They (Microsoft) made a point
    of 64Bit support being offered in version 2.

    Add me to the list looking for 64bit Version OneCare for new Vista Ultimate
    install. I've purchased OneCare from its lanch and can not believe the mighty
    MS does not have a 64bit version ready. How is it the biggest companies with
    the most people and money are always the slowest to accomplish a task?

    Thanks Theo for alternatives. I'm just really disappointed Microsoft doesn't
    have a 64bit OneCare system to sell me.

  13. I have been running OneCare on my Vista Ultimate x64 computer for months.
    What am I missing here? Or are you talking about XP Pro x64? If you are,
    forget it. It will never be released for that.

    3 words! Mcafee is crap! always was always will be!.. There are many many
    free antivirus solutions that work with Vista 64bit all are more dependable
    and less of a resource hog than a piece of s**t like Mcafee I would use AVG
    from Grisoft or Avast from Alwil or even a paid one like Vipre from Sunbelt.
    These are fast, efficient and small programs that do not drag a system like
    Mcafee or Norton would.

    I'd rather not run antivirus at all than run McAfee or Norton. I'd get only
    slightly less protection without having to pay any money for it, at least,
    and I wouldn't be lulled into a false sense of security by companies that
    would rather spend more effort on a fancy interface than on the scanner

    Is this an old post that's been dug up. Most AV products will run on 64 bit
    bit Windows, and Kaspersky is a fine fine AV product, much more than merely
    "some kind of protection", which would be the likes of One Care, which I'd
    add to my list of "rather use no antivirus than use this" objects above.
