    As Kipper says .... MSE works perfectly.

    Personally I would run an Anti-Virus on your Win7 setup as well as WinXP .

    If you dont want to pay for anything or use anotherr Anti Virus license.
    Install MSE Microsoft Security Essentials. .. it's FREE

    http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

    It uses little resources and it will keep your Win7 Setup secure.

    I use MSE on all my Netbooks. I have had no problems so far.

    and the main thing is it is FREE !!!

    Oh, and just a little warning for anyone out there who may be considering MSE if you have a..........questionable.........install of Windows. MSE will identify non-legit installs.

    This is a public service announcement in case anyone was wondering.........
