Does anyone know of any issues with running any of the following on Vista?..

AVG free 7.5x
Spybot 1.4
adaware se personal 1.06
spywareblaster v351

these are programs I have recommended to friends/family in the past but with vista arriving on the scene I was wondering if this is still a good idea.... I don't have vista and don't plan on getting it ( at least not till sp1 or so...) so I don't have any test bed..... others I have know have already gotten vista ( against my recommendation ) so.....

Spybot 1.4 <---Yes
adaware se personal 1.06 <---It runs, but it wasn't made for Vista. There is a beta that's being tested to run with 'all' windows.
spywareblaster v351 <--Yes, plus SpywareGuard.
