Anti-virus products for Vista released

Security software supplier Kaspersky Lab has released beta versions of anti-virus products for Microsoft's new Vista operating system.

Security software supplier Kaspersky Lab has released beta versions of anti-virus products for Microsoft's new Vista operating system.

The beta versions are "maintenance updates" to Kaspersky's Anti-Virus 6.0 and Internet Security products. The first Vista products are aimed at consumers, but the supplier said it is creating versions of its enterprise security applications for business users of Vista.
