Sorry I don't agree all this would do is cause confusion.

If anything I think it should go with the Mac sub-forum and they would probably be miffed even if it was posted there.

If the post is that bad (that people are/will get miffed), we can always remove that post from this thread or I can easily swap it with an entirely different Windows related article.

Why are you making such a big deal out of a very simple and totally reasonable suggestion ???
Put Mac related news in the Mac section. :)

Not sure what you consider "making such a big deal", I offered to have that post removed from this thread  :)

I think that we are back to the old 80/20 rule, 80% of users only use 20% of the function/features. For me the 'new' features may well be even lower than 20% may get used.

SecuritySoftView

SecuritySoftView is a simple tool that displays the AntiVirus, AntiSpyware, and Firewall programs
that are currently installed on your system and registered with the security center of Windows operating system

A great program to tell what's actually registered under the Security category on your system.
