This is the screen that comes up when I try to run setup for AVG:

Just to clarify-- the website for AVG (Grisoft) says it is compatible with Windows Vista 32- and 64-bit.

Any ideas on what I can do? or should I just get a different Anti-Virus Software?

Hi Max Power

Your installing AVG anti spyware on your Vista computer? AVG antispyware free version is not compatible with vista. Only the paid for version is compatible.

Hope this helps

Well, I downloaded it because it said it did support it.

Got this snapshot right from their download page: http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Hi Max Power

I'm still looking into it. You may also like to try the spyware advertised on geeks (SuperAntiSpyware). It's very good, only downside is when the vista system boots you have to give permission to continue..... everytime..

I've got it already, thanks.

But it hasn't asked me to give it permission. They must have fixed that.

Hi Max power.

Have you tried downloading the file again and reinstalling? Personally I would download avast antivirus and while installing select yes to the boot scan, just to doubly make sure there are no infections.

Nope, because I found another version that worked.

I'm okay. I wasn't worried about infection. I have a recently new installation of Vista Basic.

Thanks.
