I got a new Pc and I was wondering if it ran on windows vista. I noticed it freezes up sometimes.

Yes it will. (Installed it on my neighbour's Vista machine yesterday.)

If you're having problems, try to give more detailed information: what exactly is happening, what error reports are given, can you find any other warnings, error reports in system logs etc.

Hi FwF,

I have avast on vista home premium, after uninstalling MacAfee trial, and it works as a charm, no hick-ups whatsoever,
