    Hey, all. I'm starting to get machines on my bench - finally - that have one version of Vista or another installed. When I "clean-up" a machine, I use CCleaner, SuperAntiSpyware, Spybot S&D and AVG free. I set these up so they don't all load at startup but have to be lauched by the user.

    Are these programs compatible with Vista? Or are there other apps that are - free first of all - and better to use with Vista? Thanks!
    rtg :cool:

    Found out that the current versions of each works fine with Vista. Does the fact that a user can't do a specific search for video files in Vista bother anyone else? I "clean-up" used machines for re-sale and, as you can imagine, there are often times various video files which are...inappropriate...to leave on the machine. I know I can search by file extension, but it was nice in XP that a user could search specifically for video files.
