As far as Windows 7 goes, I think it's certainly the best Windows version in recent memory. If they'd just fix UAC to work properly, those all-encompassing security suites would have little reason to exist.
I completely agree with you CWA. I even stopped using AntiVir and put in MSE which I saw you saying was good. It works quite well.
