Vista needs no anti-virus Hey, earlier versions of Windows don't need A/V either. As long as you don't have a network connection.
Or a floppy drive.
Or a CD/DVD player.
Or a USB port.
Or if you don't turn it on.

The claim, which is sure to please antivirus vendors worldwide ... Agreed. bill msg:3154693 1:15 am on Nov 13, 2006 (gmt 0)
The first problem here is that you're quoting The Inquirer...that's not a source I'd give much credence to.
In this case they're talking about a child's account which is locked down using parental guidance settings (along with administration restrictions as well I'm sure). If Vista does live up to the marketing promises then it's altogether conceivable that an account like this could run without AV.
