Default Can I use my MBOX 2 PRO with Windows 7 for all purpose audio?

So I want to be able to use the MBOX 2 PRO for audio including internet, youtube, windows media player, etc. I know you can use it for protools itself, but not anything else. I understand that there is not an "official driver" for that yet (or maybe I am wrong) ,
but IS there a beta driver that someone could tell me if it works for all purpose? It would be great to upgrade my os, but this is my main hindering factor.
Thanks guys :)

The PT beta driver for W7 specifically excludes the MBOX 2 PRO from its list of qualified interfaces. It will likely be available in the next major update.
