“So if you look at Windows 7, there’s a fundamentally different security model that makes them more secure than an XP machine, and there are ways to reduce the risk [to XP] such as antivirus. But it’s very important that customers understand that even with an antivirus software solution, your XP machine is at risk because there’s a chance there may be a vulnerability in the actual operating system itself, and your antivirus software will not stop that.” – Tom Murphy, director of communications for Windows at Microsoft
