Windows Last week, security vendor Sophos published a blog post in which it said that Windows 7 was vulnerable to 8 our of 10 of the most common viruses. Microsoft has responded to these test results, which are a classic case of "scare 'm and they'll fall in line".

This isn't entirely true. UAC is less secure, definitely - however, the operating system itself also has other new security features. In other words, calling the entire OS less secure is a bit premature.

Doesn't negate the fact the changes in UAC are braindead.
