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".

Run windows in LUA+SRP mode folks. This is getting so tiring. I wish people who call themselves security experts knew the first thing about security.

On the Home versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7, the interface for SRP is the Parental Controls control panel (or the underlying API). Through this interface, you may restrict which applications may run (and more).
