2 thoughts on “Vista still more secure than XP

  1. Not a huge surprise to people who’ve used Vista. I see far less infected computers running Vista than XP. The one really bad instance of a Vista machine being hosed was a clever bit of social engineering, by something called PC anti-spyware. It provided a pp-up indicating the machine was infected, the user allowed the UAC prompt and provided the password. The malware looked a lot like the McAfee antivirus so I understand how they were fooled, as the machine had originally shipped with McAfee pre-installed.
    Fortunately there was a good backup, I was impressed with the Vista backup and restore program, even the desktop icons were restored as well as all data.
