    Yes to your question. But, there are a few others that do the job!
    I use Avast, and a couple of anti-spyware programs to good effect.

    Vista’s Firewall works very well.

    http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

    Avast Anti-Virus is Vista compatible (32bit and 64bit Versions), FREE,
    auto-updating, and a low resources user of your computer.
    And, only have 1(one) Anti-Virus installed / running on your computer at any
    one time..
    Conflicts may occur if you have more than 1(one).

    http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html

    Spybot Search & Destroy 1.5.2 is a very good, FREE Anti-Spyware Program.
    Download, install, update, and immunize your System with it.
    Then SCAN with it.
    Update it, and scan your System once a fortnight.

    http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

    SpywareBlaster 4.1 is a non-intrusive, FREE Anti-Spyware Program that runs
    in the background (no scanning by you!).
    Update it once a fortnight, and let it do its work in the background!

    I have to agree with NOD32 Smart Security Suite, it's VERY NICE having a
    single program that handles all the firewall/virus/malware needs,
    instead of having to worry about multiple applications for the same
    functions, though I do agree, spybot search and destroy and spyware
    blaster are fine programs, and I've used them both in the past. I have
    no opinion on Avast, never tried it. . .

    I am sure you mean you have 1gig RAM and your hard drive is probably
    at least 20 to 30 Gigs unless with Vista preinstalled, then your hard
    drive would be much larger at about at least 80 Gigs. The RAM Memory
    is as a cache memory for start up priograms and processiing to make
    the computer system faster. Your "160m" is probably 1600 Megahertz.
    The greater the megahertz the more finite the electric sifnal itself
    which in turn produces the least chance of lost information over the
    internet. Megahertz count is the actual cycles per second in AC
    (alternating current, not DC direct current - batteries) -- so to make
    the point a house lamp bulb is like 60 hertz and the naked eye can
    almost see it flicker. Compare that to 1600 megahertz and there you
    are.

    NOD32 has continually been rated as one of the world's best along
    with :
    Kaspersky, Symantec, Trend Micro, couple others or in other words you
    are in the top 5 ruffly. Spybot S&D mentioned in answers on the other
    hand has continually been rated as one of the world's worst products
    for malware detection and protection being consistently in the bottom
    5 -- as some rave over it and Advanced Users as myself still do not
    know why ( I am webmaster of bluecollarpc.net - non commercial).

    It does not work (Restricted Sites entries by) Seeing is believing,
    play this:

    Restricted Sites Does Not Work
    Restricted Sites Does Not Work (9.63M/wmv)...... Audio / Visual
    BCPCNet-Modcast movie shows a website that was in Restricted Sites and
    I am at that website navigating it with the icon in bottom bar showing
    it is in Restricted Sites in the Internet Browser settings (Tools >
    Internet Options > Security > Restricted Sites > Sites ...or from
    Control Panel). I have mentioned before that the various mass utilites
    entries made for this simply are nothing more than a False Sense of
    Security. I have said that because I have seen this - and now proof
    here as I was able this time to capture it on e-film. As well, it is
    possible these type utilties can cause "incremental damage" to the
    Windows Registry thus in the worst case scenario causing, yes, the
    Windows Operating System to fail and / or other softwares such as an
    antivirus program for example. Go To our "Windows Registry
    Information" webpage here Windows Registry Information for full
    details explaing this. For XP Users the maximum size of the Windows
    Registry is 200M (Microsoft increased) and for earlier systems only a
    very modest 12M. You type a large email and it can get to 200K to 300K
    easily. This is not hard to understand that adding thousands or a
    million one liner domains (Example.com) or individual URLs (http : //
    something - is URL) to achieve "safe browsing - no malware will
    install because site is blocked in Restricted Sites" at some point of
    continual "updates" (adding more sites and domains) is going to exceed
    the Microsoft: Windows Registry Limits Imposed . This is the major
    reason I stopped using them years ago along with the fact that I
    discovered they do not work many times - it has been circumvented and
    cannot therefore be relied upon as safe except for 'feel good' surfing
    (false sense of security). 9.63M / .wmv

    If you give bad security advice then that is who you are. No need to
    get uncivil about it but rather an education. Would you like to be
    educated ? I can help.

    1. Kaspersky Internet Security 2009. Awesome scanning speed, Superb Detection rate of Virus, Malware, Spyware etc, Fire wall and Web security. Fast system
    2. Bit defender ( All in one like KIS 2009)
    3. Avast. Best free AV ( Use with a good anti spy like Webroot Spy sweeper, A squared anti malware, Spyware terminator {a little system hog, but very good protection and free} or Spybot S&D)
    4. AVG antivirus and anti spy as above

    NOD 32 is a very good AV, but the detection rate of malware/spyware is bad. I experienced it. If you want vundoo trojan, win 32 trojan down loader in your system, then use NOD 32 alone. I Suggest go for Kaspersky if u have the money. For free, Avast + Spyware terminator + Spybot S&D is a good combination

    PS - Nothing can beat KIS 2009 + Webroot Spysweeper + A Squared Anti Malware + Windows Defender. A wonderful combination I have. My machine runs super Fast, Just a click is enough
