I tried to install AVG with my drive that has WinXP x64, but it failed. Do I even need to worry about viruses for this RC yet?

The x86-64 instruction set sits ontop of the x86 instruction set... so in other words, a 32 bit virus would affect a 64 bit CPU.

 

 

And if it's Windows... expect a virus in 3 days.

 

 

EDIT:

However, there's hope:

Lessee.... I think that the link I posted goes to Avast... which I don't think is owned by Norton.

First of all if you read my post properly, you should understand that I am speaking of norton only. Now if I have said something like this Only norton has a 64 bit anti virus than yes you can quote me. If there is one good it is free and cheap. Plus when I typed my post you did not mention the web page.
