Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! They didn't even send me the email yet dude. Thanks. Reped.
Thanks for the heads-up!

No. The Vista version (V3) has just been released.
I have deinstalled PC Tools SpyWare Doctor and PC Tools FireWall Plus V2 and installed Comodo FireWall Pro V3.
And comodo is much better right?
"Better"? I don't yet know for sure. It seems to pass the same ShieldsUp tests that an unprotected Vista Home Premium PC passes. It seems to identify programs that want to access the internet (which is 100% more than the Windows Vista Firewall does). The PC seems to run faster.
On the first install (I have installed it twice now) I left PC Tools SpyWare Doctor installed and active and SpyWare Doctor detected a few dozen trojans during the install of Comodo; however, I ran SpyBot Search and Destroy (twice) and it did not detect any such debris. And I trust SpyBot more than SpyWare Doctor. I have since uninstalled SpyWare Doctor.
I'll try Comodo for awhile and see. It will take awhile to root around in it and find how it tells me about stuff. And it is one of the first to be Vista-ready.
I don't know much about Comodo but this is posted on the download site.
Authenticates the integrity of every program before allowing it to load into your computer's memory.
Alerts you every time an unknown or untrusted applications attempts to run or install
Blocks Viruses, Trojans and Spy-ware before they can ever get onto your system
Prevents unauthorized modification of critical operating system files and registry entries
Does this mean I wouldn't need AntiVir, spyware Doctor or search & destroy?
I left avast! antivirus installed. I uninstalled SpyWare Doctor. I left SpyBot S&D installed, but I am only running it on an ad-hoc basis; no innoculation. I opted to install the Defense+ component of Comodo.
There's another thread ongoing over at Wilders Security Forums
