Just picked up a new computer for my brother and found it has had an anti spyware programme from Microsoft installed (Beta version). Seems they've bought out Giant Spywareblaster. Anyone know whats going on and if this is a good prog?

works a treat!

Infact, found more than spybot and adaware, and even a trojan and RAT (Remote Access Trojan) on the system, that nothing else found.

Real-time protecting is good, and spynet reporting is too, but can be slow at times.

I hope it stays free, because it would cirtainly make me think highly of microsoft if they help us fight the spyware that manages to get past it's own OS.
