MS to Ship Malware Protection Utility

This looks kind of interesting.  I wonder if it will merge with the existing Anti-SpyWare product they are offering?

Microsoft introduced on Thursday a new program that will help to combat viruses, malware and spyware in the corporate environment, as well as provide stronger protection for current and emerging threats. Called Microsoft Client Protection, the new service could be seen as new competition for McAfee and Symantec.

  1. If the MS spyware program is the as the Microsoft Ani Spyware, Then I supposed it falls behind what customers require and I doubt it may even enters the competition between McAfee/Symantec/etc...etc...

    Microsoft in its own word, considers GAIN as a non Spyware program thus unblocking.
    GAIN which is considered one of the most Ad-Aware/ Spyware horrible programs ever since it starts download other spyware programs and not just the GAIN program itself.

    I am usually a thumb up when it comes to MS products but this specific products is just not Microsoft. I even wonder why Microsoft has released such a product.
