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".

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).
