What is Microsoft AntiSpyware..?

On the 6th January 2005 Microsoft AntiSpyware was released in BETA to the general public.

Whilst an early release, it is by no means an unknown piece of software.

This is due to the fact that Microsoft bought the technology from GIANT in December 2004 and have been working on integrating the technology into a Microsoft product ever since!

 

 

October 24, 2006 Update - Now Called "Windows Defender"!



Windows Defender features system scan capabilities similar to other free products on the market, and includes a number of real-time security agents that monitor several common areas of Windows for changes which may be caused by spyware.

It also includes the ability to easily remove ActiveX applications that are installed. Also integrated is support for Microsoft's SpyNet network that allows users to report to Microsoft what they consider to be spyware, and what applications and device drivers they allow to be installed on their system.
