implicit in your question, you seem to think windows is secure against 
govt spying...

if you run windows, then gpg4win should be the least of your security 

windows doesn't get "infected" with spyware... it *IS* spyware. MS has 
long been known to be in bed with govt spy agencies. *ANY* software 
running on windows is vulnerable to govt (and other 3rd party) spying.
