FSX RUNNING WELL ON WIN 7!

Just recently purchased FSX for my Win 7 machine and after installing the latest 11.5 version of catalyst for my ATI HD 5770 plus their FUSION software, i can report that good results in frame rates are being observed.

Target frame rate is set to 75 fps.

All settings are on ultra high, scenery and aircraft densities set to around 90%

Light bloom and ground shadows off

Anti aliasing and bilinear filtering enabled

Actual frame rates rising up to 61 fps!

averaging around 35-40fps

Man did I miss playing Flight Simulator. Are there missions to play around with?

How much did you get the game for?

Found the the above service was running all the time and I only occasionally use SuperSpyware AntiSpyware as a standalone scan. This is solely as backup check to my Antimalwarebytes Pro. May I stop and disable it, and how would I remove it entirely? Thanks Glenn
