      It should work, I installed it from the cd on a friends vista laptop about 6 weeks ago....no problems so far. McAfee wouldn't install from the disk though, no great loss there.

      Work fine for me but try opening the cd, right clicking on the setup and run as administrator.

      Re: Vista compatible.

      Try placing the CD flat on your desk, go and get a hot cup of coffee and place it on top of it. It is guaranteed not to mark your desk.That is the most useful thing the CD can be used for.

      Vista runs fine with the Netgear router, just plug the yellow cable in at both ends and you are away. Vista handles internet connections much better than XP and does not even need to be optimized. If it is dropping at regular intervals of about 15 mins, disable UPnP as this can cause that problem.
