I'm using Mcafee and I don't think much of it. I was wondering when Nod32 is coming out on Vista or a virus scanning program as good as it!

Please reply,

oh ye, never used it... Microsoft did say that there were going to open up there Kernel with some kindof API so anti-virus software writers can do stuff with it.

But wouldn't that be exploitable and thus defeating the object of the closed kernel? :/

Yea, i think it was actually something that they didn't want to do but they had to compromise because all the AV companies were bitching about it. i guess in this case for once i don't actually feel all that bad against Microsoft. It's almost like they were forced to put holes in their OS so that the AV guys would have something to do
