It seems that some people are bringing new Vista laptops back after the Easter vacation. Please, please, please DO NOT run the ResNet security checker with Windows Vista machines. The CD clearly states that it should only be run on Windows 2000 and XP and then exits. Windows Vista in its infinite wisdom then asks you if you want to run the CD in ‘Compatibility Mode’ and then emulates and XP installation so that it can run the CD. The main problem comes when the Anti-Virus is installed as version 8.0i is incompatible with Vista and can crash your machine.
To get Vista going on ResNet, visit<http://register.resnet.bristol.ac.uk> with your Vista machine and follow the on-screen instructions. McAfee version 8.5i is available to download and install from there.
We currently have about 42 machines running windows Vista.
