    And until that happens MSE can do the job
    Couldn't agree more..!
    Waiting while making more exploration to this build and making effort to have one large-touchscreen monitor..

    Thanks!

    Will do further test of more security software later, just bear in mind though that this is only for this build (8102 Developers Preview), compatibility will only get better as the OS matures.

    Auslogics Antivirus 2011 installs when under Windows 7 mode, and then runs after but causes massive system instability. I do not recommend anyone to install this.

    I'm running panda cloud antivirus. Works great!

    In fact I switched to panda on win7, it wasnt worse than anything else I'd used before.

    I think that Bill2 got Panda working with an older build, not WDP...

    Avira works pretty nicely, but there were time that the avscan.exe got crashed after taking action on virus warning. In general it's OK. But I try working with MSE lately...
