    UAC isn't an anti-virus and Windows 7 tells you to get an anti-virus by itself.

    Obvious Stated.

    Now, Windows 7 still has terrible basic anti-virus.

    Hey, it's Windows. What did you expect?

    Personally, I stick with my Ubuntu dawg hommies.

    You have to be really stupid to get viruses.

    True. Just recently, though, some idiot flagged iPTF on McAfee SiteAdvisor, and now iPTF is a yellow-flag site. (Instead of a green flag) Now, every time I load the page, the yellow info box flashes for about 3 seconds.

    I don't know how it works, but can't you set it as a safe site so it doesn't do that?

    But I like that addon.


    @Bubalooshi - I figured out how to do it.


    Ugh, still yellow. And no, I will not disable it.
