Microsoft is about to release a first public beta version of their new free anti-virus software program Morro which is supposed to fill the gap left by the Microsoft One Care demise. Morro seems to be concentrating on being an anti-virus software program without additional modules that allow a user to create backups or use a firewall for extra protection. Those extra modules are on the other hand already available in the Windows 7 operating system which makes Morro the ideal candidate to fill the one layer of protection that is not already shipping with Windows 7: Anti-virus protection.
Microsoft has said "it will provide protection from several types of malicious software including viruses, spyware, rootkits & trojans"
It is not yet clear how Morro will run along with Windows Defender. It basically seems that Morro will be Windows Defender with added capabilities to detect and remove viruses, rootkits and trojans as well as spyware. The anti-virus software is expected to enter public beta stage in the coming months with no exact date given yet.

It’s true, Windows 7’s secret new feature is XP Mode. It’s a virtual Windows XP machine—complete with a fully licensed copy of Windows XP SP 3 installed on the virtual machine—that you can download which runs seamlessly in Windows 7, so you can do crazy things like run IE6 side-by-side with IE8. It’s meant for businesses who need compatibility for mission critical XP-only apps.
Really, don’t get too hung up on it—it’s only for the Enterprise, Professional and Ultimate versions of Windows 7, not the Home Premium version you’ll probably be running one day. (The release candidate is Ultimate, so you can toy around with it after downloading it here.) You also need a processor with either Intel Virtualization Technology or AMD-V and 2GB of RAM. And you can’t really do anything intense like gaming inside of it.

Easy Way to Adjust LargeSystemCache
HKLMSystemCurrentControlSetControlSession ManagerMemory Management and change thevalue to either O or 1 to the adjustment the LargeSystemCache.
However, in Windows XP, all you have to do is:· Right-click My Computer.· Select Properties.· Click Advanced.· Choose Performance.· Click Advanced again.· Select either Programs or System Cache under Memory Usage.Programs = 0 for the registry tweak equivalentSystem Cache = 1 for the registry tweak equivalent
· On NT Server (in this case XP), the Large System Cache option is enabled, butdisabled on Workstation. The two different settings effect how the cache managerallocates free memory. If the Large Cache option is on, the manager marks all the freememory, which isn’t being used by the system and/or applications, as freely available fordisk caching.
· On the flip-side (with a small cache), the manager instead only sets aside 4MB ofmemory for disk caching in an attempt to accelerate the launch of applications. Or in amore technical approach, if enabled the system will favor system-cache working sets overprocess working sets (with a working set basically being the memory used by components ofa process).
