Antispyware

Postby Gator999 » Tue Jan 25, 2005 10:43 am

I have been using Spybot and adaware for quite a while without any complaints.

I recently downloaded M$ beta spyware app and have been very impressed

Please someone tell me I am not dreaming, MS have produced something that does what is says on the tin and doesn't screw up your machine every half hour :)

If you haven't tried it yet it is definately worth the download

Yes we are hearing good things about it, thanks for the 'heads up'......

I think they are still unsure as to how they might eventually package it ie put it in windows or sell it, or continue to develop it and have it as a free download

I will give it a go......

The real test will come when I run it on my daughters computer....

I'm not knocking it because it does work great, but like I posted in another thread regarding this:

Is it just me or does it appear that M$ just took Giants product and slapped the M$ logo on it?

I guess the term, "If its not broke, dont try to fix it" applies here." :)

It looks like they bought it lock, stock and barrel, because it hasnt changed one tiny little bit.
