    That is both interesting and good news. It looks as though I'm already running a kind of XP mode, with XP Pro running in Virtualbox on my Vista host, with Malware Defender keeping an eye on things (there is mention in one of the linked articles on exploitable weaknesses in VM software that could be used to launch guest-to-host attacks) in the guest system :)
