I would like to know whether it is possible to set up the windows 7 desktop to display multiple virtual desktops, like in Ubuntu where you can switch from one desktop to another using crl+alt+left/up/down/right arrow.

I need this functionality implemented because my windows desktop is always too cluttered.

If anyone is aware of any software to obtain this result please let me know. Basically I need the effect of having two monitors with a single monitor displaying both, just one at a time, and switch between the musing keyboard shortcuts.

This can be easily and comfortably done with VirtuaWin:

VirtuaWin is a virtual desktop manager for the Windows operating system (Win9x/ME/NT/Win2K/XP/Win2003/Vista/Win7). A virtual desktop manager lets you organize applications over several virtual desktops (also called ‘workspaces’).
