Glad to hear Avast is already recognised by the new Windows system though.  Wonder if they'll set it up as a Critical Update with all sorts of incorporated fixes to other things which should have been thought of before, so that we have to download it or get some virus, or whether they'll give us the choice.

Knowing Microsoft probably not.

With all this detection, and what appears to guard these programs,  Im wondering just how important it is to have such programs as Process Guard now. Or if in fact they will collide somehow. Like Xp's firewall, vs your own firewal.  Im sure they will have somekind of shut down for it,  yet what im understanding is that it is more difficult to do. Like windows auto updates, they are going to make it more difficult to elliminate, this all in hopes to force more updates for people. Yet i wonder how difficult it will be for those of us who do a more custom rig.

Amen, on all thats been mentioned. Also not to mention the fact that some of WINS security (critical) updates (patches) that we download to fix a particular problem actually have created new problems that were not there before the download. :D
