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".

Exactly, I always wondered how people know they dont have viruses without "ever installing antivirus". That goes for you Mac' guys too!

In fairness, there are usually indications of malware infections (unusual drive & network activity, suspicious processes, etc). And the people who run without anti-virus software can usually spot those signs on their own (or at least they think they can).
