    • delenn13,
      That is from Microsoft’s free to all Safety & Security Center, a superb resource for all things security.

      I understand: M$ bashing has been a popular pastime for many, for a long while, (I have a few “bashes” myself.. like.. why is Format still a visible right click option on C:\ [dumbest thing ever]???) but IMHO they are leading the way with the Safer Computing Initiative (which brought us Vista) and we are now seeing some of the benefits of that policy.. all across “tech”. A sea change.

      Thank you for helping to spread the word.
