@inexodus"You also can't forget that family PCs are shared, so even with Win 7's enhanced security all it takes is a young sibling or uninformed parent to click "OK" and you've lost your account."And... we're back to dumb users for $200."While waiting for drivers, updates and everything else to download and install I figured I'd go to my usual, trusted addon sites and get the latest copies of the few addons I needed."And... we're back to dumb users for $200. You clearly know enough about Windows and security to know that you DON'T DO THAT until you've updated and gotten your anti-malware of choice set up. Otherwise you're a... dumb user."Are they stupid? Certainly not"I'm on the fence on that one, although the lion's share of this is to be laid at Microsoft's feet. Thankfully with Windows 7 being a reasonable upgrade from XP, we'll slowly see this fade away, much as IE6 will slowly (too slowly!) fade away.
