So what? OS reinstallation is the name of the game with Windows.

From the signature of another forum member:

Reinstalling Windows is not a "fix", its idiopathic, find out the cause of the problem, or more than likely you will be "fixing" it again soon.

The "problem" is junk accumulated from every day use. I'll stick with my fresh installs instead of wasting time to clean it all out manually.

My secondary is MSE.

My tertiary anti-virus is a reformat, because it takes me 1 hour to get back up and running (including the format itself) rather than waiting for a scan.

these are very true statements but the really the only time you should totally fresh install is when windows starts to lag but not do to a virus but if you just reformat casue of a virus you could just get it again .

MSE has also declined in the latest AV-Comparatives report (it used to be the top or close to it). Actually, Trustport or McAfee are currently rated the highest. Usually the top spot shifts quite frequently. The trick is to pick one that is usually very close to it.

I only use my Vista installation a couple of times a week and MSE doesn't make my boot times and already sluggish system unbearable.

And even as a full-time Linux user I do rather like the user interface for some reason. Plus it's a rather simple application. Which is a good thing.
