How well protected is Windows 7 from spyware? What free clients are available? Do the clients for Windows Vista work at all with Windows 7?

Windows 7 is not fully released yet is it? Therefore I wouldn't think there was any. I might be wrong.

EDIT

Strike that here is a list of antispyware software compatible with windows 7

Most all programs compatible with Windows Vista (and even XP) are compatible with Windows 7. This would include anti-spyware apps.

These are a few I've used: - SpyBot (http://www.safer-networking.org/) - MalwareBytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org/) - Ad-Aware (http://www.lavasoft.com/)

... and of course there is always Windows Defender which is a feature of Windows 7 (as well as Vista)

Windows Defender

Free, specifically designed for Windows Vista and 7, built by Microsoft, working fine on my Windows 7 RC.
