BRUSSELS -- Leading computer security firm Symantec Wednesday warned that users of Microsoft's new 'Vista' operating system could find their options for running anti-virus style software seriously reduced.
Vista is still in the final stages of its development phase and the system is not due to go on sale until the beginning of 2007.
