If they are, i am not surprised. They would probably use some of the features and what-not to incorporate into MSE. Or they will get rid of MSE and claim Symantec to be theirs.

Typical Microsoft, they gotta have there hand in all the pies.

If they do it may turn out like a blend, hopefully like a fine Scotch whiskey......

With the experience of Symatec in the security branch and the funds of Microsoft, we should soon have the best solution for pc protection ever, requiring 1GB ram minimum and a quad core proc for full hdd scan

but who knows, maybe Microsoft will even buy NASA and make Windows 8 the official operating system of the Mars Rover

You might want to check what processes you have running. There is no way Windows 7 should be that bloated. I'm running Windows 7 x64 with only 4 GB of RAM and I have like 20 games installed on my computer. Even when those games are running, I usually have 1-2 GB free.

As for the Microsoft-Symantec deal...I just hope they won't change MSE. It might be a good idea for improving the backup software and other things like that.
