defender & anti spyware

  Garthyy 16:42 20 Feb 06

MS have both available for download but what is the difference between them? They are both in beta.

Personally I prefered MSAntispy.

Defender has a far simpler interface with less options and tools but you may as well go for it as it is superceeding MSAntispy.

Defender has taken over from Antispyware, and is the latest they have to offer. Use Defender and uninstall Antisyware.

I understand that if you are using Antispy at present you will aotomatically be updated with Defender in due course
