Musings of a PC

Thoughts about Windows, TV and technology in general


I work in I.T. and am interested in most forms of technology. I use my blog to share knowledge and experience as I come across it.

    Regarding WP7; have you come across any security software like antivirus, firewall, spyware,etc? If so how to install them? My HTC HD7 Windows Phone 7 does not support .cab and .exe file. Thanks in advance for your response.

      There isn’t any security software at the moment and I haven’t read anything that suggests that it is needed. Unless you have an unlocked handset, software can only be installed from the Marketplace which significantly reduces the risk of such problems. This is one of the reasons why WP7 is locked down like this, as compared to the way Windows Mobile worked where you could install any CAB file.
