The changes to loosen up the security for Windows 7 et al. so that MVM can scan it via the network seem pretty extensive:
re-enable the local admin account
enable the remote registry service
edit the registry to disable remote UAC
and I don't see a way to nail down the access to just the scan engines.
I have two questions:
Does anybody have a more graceful way to give MVM access to W7/Vista/Server2008? Changes via AD group policy?
And for the MVM folks:
Given that Microsoft is likely to move forward with battening down security, and undoing MS security for MVM (oh, the irony) may become less palatable over time, is there a plan to make an MVM scan agent for Windows?

MVM Agent Wanted is the product Idea you want to vote on to give it popularity and hopefully sway the powers that be that this product needs agent capability.Message was edited by: sonic on 10/20/11 2:14:07 AM CDT
