yeah I forgot to mention , Windows 8 preview already integrates a so called security scan when you download anything through IE (v10) from the metro interface. I saw it happen a couple of times.
Windows 7 does the same thing with IE9. It's part of the Smart Screen filtering.

oops you're right, I hardly use IE9 to download anything but I've seen it happen once or twice with smart screen. Just on IE10/Win8, the scope is larger, it's OS wide.

The last major improvement mentioned by Garms involves Internet Explorer's SmartScreen filter, which identifies URLs known and suspected to be malicious - the SmartScreen filter can now work OS-wide, and will warn you before running any potentially unreputable executables.
