Vista changes lock out antivirus makers

Vista changes lock out antivirus makers: "I take it for granted that the black hats will find ways into the kernel. Do you want security software to be able to go in and root the bad stuff out?

But we have to recognize that this is simply not practical advice for the vast majority of users."
