The xp-AntiSpy is a little utility that lets you disable some built-in update and authentication 'features' in WindowsXP.

I had this software when I was using XP but now that I'm using 7 I'm not sure if using it is recommended. Although it says 7 compatible I still don't trust them until I hear some real opinions or facts. So what do you people think?

I think that using Microsoft Security Essentials with

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: Malwarebytes

and at least the Windows Firewall

used with common sense

is all the protection that will ever be needed. Its free and has a small footprint.

I used it on XP, but have not on Windows 7. Tell truth, maybe just a feeling, but 7 seems to need less "help". A Guy

It allows you to turn off certain "functions", or at least it did in XP. I'm not aware that it works in Winows 7, nor am I suggesting it

Agreed, per the OP post. It is similar to WinPatrol. I would suggest that free version, instead.

Although it is a little tempting to try the software it probably won't be good idea.

I would also recommend WinPatrol. Saved my bacon once.

Personally I would be reluctant to use any program with XP in the title even though they say it works with 7.

Just the name of the program sounds like one of those rogue anti-virus.
